San Francisco: Norman Maslov - Agent Internationale

Norman Maslov, a native San Franciscan, is an artist's agent representing a small group of extremely creative commercial photographers who constantly cross the line between fine ads and fine art. His agency, Norman Maslov, Agent Internationale was founded in 1986 and is based on the west coast of the United States.

The agency represents a wide variety of award winning photographers, including David Allan Brandt, Michele Clement, Amy Herold, Deborah Jones, Bud Lammers, Emily Merrill, Harold Lee Miller, Sue Tallon and Stephen Austin Welch. Also on the roster is Skeleton Digital, a left-of-centre retouching entity and Flipside Studios, working in the 360° format.

Norman attended San Francisco State University studying Communications and Film, which led to a strange ten-year stint in the recording industry. Starting in retail record stores, he later moved on to promoting and marketing artists for MCA and ABC Records. He is a passionate music lover and collector and self-proclaimed 'Beatleologist', having co-authored the very first travel guide of Beatles sites titled 'The Beatles' England'. Gin Martinis and hats are other items that can frequently be seen on or around him, as well as visualised on his Manhattman Blog.
