Using the World as Your Creative Inspiration, a Conversation with Tim Saccenti
This week’s BluePrint episode features Tim Saccenti, Director and Photographer of Setta Studio with host Dinesh Boaz, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Direct Agents and guest host Maddie Fantle, Associate Director, Creative & Marketing at Direct Agents.
Tim is a renowned photographer and video director. His portfolio includes some of the biggest brands in the world like Nike, and Audi, and artists like Travis Scott, Lana Del Rey, and Run the Jewels. He has mastered the art of fusing his style of work with the vision of brands and artists into cohesive pieces sharing, “as long as we can deliver the piece in a very high-end manner, we’re allowed to push it into this bizarre territory”.
In this episode, Tim discusses his journey from discovering photography as a career in the ’90s to starting a studio with his creative partner Dina Chang. He shares where he finds his inspiration and what influenced his iconic style today. Tim also discusses his process when he’s feeling stuck during a creative project and the importance of using the world as inspiration. He remarks how much having a conversation with someone about their interests and work can help inspire your own. “Being interested in other people and other people’s work inherently makes you an interesting person.”
