We came across Sticks & Stones Agency on Instagram and had to get in touch with these wildly creative Australians. The husband/wife team, Ainsley & Sebastien, providing shock value in their unique photos, art direction, styling and web store. Their hugely followed IG account just got deleted because a nip slip so make sure you check them out and give them some love. They have a campaign up right now directed to Instagram that is pretty funny, #SaveSticksAndStonesAgency. For more of their work check it out here and read on for E+E’s short interview with Ainsley!
Keeping things weird, sexy and fun seems to be your bread and butter. What’s the secret to keeping the Sticks & Stones Agency spicy and wild?
Umm…..I think we just come up with ideas & follow through with most of them. Maybe more then we should sometimes….hahaha…. We have stopped censoring ourselves.
Tell us a story.. whats one of the strangest things that has happened while on the job?
This Is a hard question… Mostly because nothing strange or weird really ever happens round here… At least by our standards. I guess to other people it might be weird to see Sebastien dressed as Jesus getting his photos taken in an Adult shop??? That’s what we were doing last night… Shit like this goes down a lot.
We’re super pumped about 2015, what does Sticks & Stones have in store?
We are making some fun changes to our website. Adding more pages for more rad stuff. We will also be doing a lot more filming…working on our you tube channel. We have some really fun over seas trips to take too for different things like music festivals & fashion trade shows that we will be blogging about & shitty interviewing at.
Any advice for aspiring stylist, photo shoot directors, creatives and/or husband-wife duos?
Always remember that change is the only constant. That we are made to evolve so never get stuck! Always be good to people because this industry is a lot to do with who you know. Only do it if you LOVE it… Your work will be so much better when its not driven by money. Don’t be a fashion wanker.
When you are back home in Australia where do you have to eat?
Grounds organic café. I am there more then some of the staff. That’s my Coffice.
