Creative Management Goes Radical

By Ad Published on .

"Creative Management is gone," says co-founder Michael Ash (pictured) of his seven-year-old photo agency. After dissolving his relationship with longtime partner Tim Case at the end of June (Case ran the Creative Management directors division and moved on with co-producer Kent Eby to open Tony Kaye crib Minder Media, later rebranded to Supply & Demand), Ash closed the doors of his repping firm only to re-emerge days later with his roster at the offices of @radical.media. The new print division, which also retains Ash's cross-country network of photo agents, fills perhaps the last gap in @radical's multimedia-spanning arsenal. Ash, who serves as director of print, hopes that the partnership will yield further opportunities for his shooters, including Jim Erickson, Dewey Nicks and David Harriman. "When I spoke to [@radical head] Jon Kamen, who originally came from the print world, he was on board almost immediately," Ash says. The new partnership is "part of the equation of our continued evolution. Most directors come from a photography background, so to be able to work with Jon in these situations will definitely help."
