I'm Maggie Hilliard. I dig digital marketing, social media, online communities, media, sports, pop culture, and Diet Coke, among other things. I live in NYC and can be found on Twitter and LinkedIn. I'm a Social Strategist at Digitas. You can email me here.
Previously I was an Account Supervisor at Velocidi, the Marketing Manager at DailyLit, Co-founder and Organizer of The Publishing Point, a student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a kid in Minnesota.
This blog is where I post things I find and thoughts I have about:
“Throughout my travels and transit time to and from shoots I started using the iPhone camera to scout locations and collect inspirational content for potential projects. I shot my first newsstand near Broadway and Morris Stretts in New York City and immediately found myself stopping to take portraits at every stand I passed. I’m drawn to the vibrant organized colors and compact product placement that provides an instant time stamp via magazine covers and headlines.
The New York City newsstand is a staple in the Big Apple and its perfect square structure is an immediate attraction to the composition fanatic in me. The iPhone has a great dynamic range and its unobtrusive ability lets me shoot with a lot more ease. Paired with editing apps such as Snapseed & PicFx, the end-product emulates the qualities of my favored Hasselblad. I revisited a handful of newsstands with different cameras, and although each camera delivers its own advantage, the iPhone is my current first choice. This project is ongoing and recently I was able to expand the collection to kiosks in Barcelona and Paris.” –Courtesy of Trevor Traynor
