Douglas Avery

Avery began his career in photography as a graduate of NYU, first assisting Annie Leibovitz, then later honing his craft with with likes of Richard Avedon and Steven Klein. He found success shooting fashion photography in London for ID, The Face, and Dazed & Confused, but has always been drawn by film’s ability to tell a more immersive and nuanced story than what any single frame can offer. While in London, Avery made many short films, among them including “Hitch,” which was featured in Cannes’ Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors Showcase, thus launching his career as a commercial director. Douglas won Best New Director at the British Craft Advertising Awards for his first commercial spots, his second project in the US was awarded a Clio for Best Direction, and the accolades have continued ever since.
