Invaluable to some of the best image makers are a team of highly skilled professionals going by the name of Studio Private. They do everything that’s visual to facilitate either brands, agencies, photographers or directors, to create imagery for marketing, creative and editorial purposes. Remember that scene from The September Issue where different retouched versions of Sienna Miller’s neck are presented for the final cover? This is one of the many things that you’ll find Studio Private doing. But, their work goes way beyond average Photoshop skills. Counting that their clients include brands like LVMH, Prada and Chanel, and publications like A Magazine Curated By, New York Times and American Vogue, it goes without saying that one must be diligent to help creating some of the industry’s most defining imagery. To get more insight into the world of what some simply call ‘post’, we sat down with Erika Trotzig, the co-founder of the eleven-year-old company, and Daniel Margolin, the Head of Production. Their friendship and colleague-ship goes way back to foundation year; being roommates, and both studying BA Fashion at Central Saint Martins: Erika doing Womenswear, and Daniel Menswear. “So a long time ago,” says Erika. “Yeah, 270 years ago,” jokes Daniel.
