This talk is focused on my five year personal photographic project traveling around the country photographing various companies and individuals that still handcraft beautiful products here in America. I will discuss the many observations and amazing adventures I experienced along the way.
Tadd Myers is an award-winning photographer who specializes in advertising, corporate, and editorial projects around the world. Tadd’s extensive client list includes advertising agencies such as The Richards Group, Arnold World Wide, TM Advertising, Young & Rubicam, and companies such as MD Anderson, Dr. Pepper, American Airlines, and Sears Craftsman among many others. Tadd discovered photography through his father’s printing company in Houston, Texas, where at an early age he began operating a printing press and working in the darkroom. His passion for photography led him to Texas A&M University-Commerce, where he earned a BA in Photography with a minor in Computer Science. This combination of artistry and inquisitiveness is what drives Tadd to always look beyond what is in front of his camera lens, and makes the images he creates so alive with emotion and the feeling there’s a story you want to hear behind each moment captured.
