Selecting photographer, talent and crew is the cornerstone of any successful photoshoot. 

We’ve been making photoshoots happen for the world’s leading brands and their agencies since 1996. With long-standing relationships with most every rep and agency in the business, we stay on top of the best talent out there and consistently negotiate attractive rates for our clients.
 

Show us your brief and your budget and we’ll present you with a targeted selection of great portfolios across a spectrum of style, price and experience. All pre-negotiated, available and affordable.
 

Whether you’re a freshly hatched start-up or a billion-dollar conglomerate, we’ll obsessively manage every aspect of your photoshoot process with a high touch and a shrewd eye. From the selection of the right photographer through the delivery of the retouched hard drive.

Roark’s good at picking the right talent. He keeps asking the right questions, knows when to push back and when to get out of the way.
— Photo Agent
Roark&Company negotiated a package that more than paid their fee. Roark is committed, has wonderful ideas, and he’s fun.
— Senior Brand Manager
In the high stakes, high-pressure world dominated by ‘personalities,’ Roark does the best ‘Diva Management’ out there.
— Agency Executive Creative Director
Roark’s aggressive, but fair. He’s skilled at making room for win-win outcomes. I appreciate that he takes my perspective into account, too.
