Posted on 10/24/2012 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Novus Select announced today the formation of Tectonic Media Group (TMG), a New York-based talent management and media consulting firm. TMG represents the top talent in action and adventure sports photography and filmmaking. The firm will look after each artist in all aspects of their career, from print advertising and editorial work, to directing commercials, branded content, and feature length documentaries, as well as content licensing, book publishing, speaking engagements, and brand endorsements.

The initial group of artists includes Jimmy Chin, Jeff Curtes, Corey Rich, and Tyler Stableford, all of whom have shot advertising campaigns for top brands including Apple, Burton Snowboards, Canon, Nike, Nikon, and The North Face.

"This group represents some of the best talent working today," says Jonathan Retseck, Director of TMG. "These artists are not only amazing trans-media storytellers, but also possess the rare ability to succeed under pressure and achieve high-production-value shoots in the most remote and dangerous locations on Earth."

Jose Azel, CEO of Novus Select says, "Never has there been this concentration of creativity, ingenuity and raw talent in the outdoor media sector. This group's cumulative experience is unparalleled. TMG is a great addition and extension of our diverse photography network, and certainly at the peak of our artist roster."
"I am all about community, camaraderie and collaboration," says artist Corey Rich. "I am confident that being teamed up with the guys that I admire most, Tyler, Jimmy and Jeff, will allow us all to grow creatively and professionally."

Tyler Stableford adds, "I am thrilled to be partnering with such a talented group of visual artists and storytellers at Tectonic Media Group. I think it will be a powerful coalition and repping group."
