Over the last decade, Annie Watt has become the "go-to lenser" for savvy event producers and chairladies around the country. Her unique ability to put her subjects at ease, and give them a crash course in posing - even to the most frequent red carpet figures helps her glamorous subjects put their best face forward. Her gentle reminders and subtle advice to her subjects have earned her the moniker of ‘The Posing Expert’.

 

One of Annie’s biggest asset as a photographer is that her clients trust her to present them in the most flattering light. Her photography style has an emphasis on capturing candid photos in addition to the standard posed shots showing people smiling into the camera.  

 

Annie does this with an ease and grace that has won her legions of admirers, not only among the high profile subjects she photographs, but also the top society hostesses,  event planners and the media with whom she enjoys extraordinary relationships.

 

Annie’s path to the Galerie Dumonteil consisted of an artistic spirit combined with a pragmatic business sense and a singular drive to succeed. In high school, Annie’s love of the arts, combined with a determined work ethic and impressive academics, won her a four-year full tuition scholarship at the world renowned School of Visual Arts in Manhattan and the opportunity to study with such notable artists as Chuck Close, Paul Wagner, Jack Potter and Milton Glaser. After graduation, Annie continued her education and received a teaching certification from Hunter College and pursued a Masters in Art History at Alfred University in Scotland.

 

Following her return to the United States, Annie, at the age of 24, became the youngest Agency Director at the Barbizon School for Modeling.  During her tenure Annie developed an innate sense of what “worked” in a model’s portfolio and how to make the subject a more marketable commodity.

 

This exposure to photographers’ needs and the business of photography led Annie in the late 1980s to the Graphic Systems Group, a company that was a pioneer in high-end digital photo manipulation. GSG created some of the most iconic special effects in images at the time.

 

At GSG, she also developed a keen appreciation for the fantastic images and special effects shot by very talented photographers. As Annie learned more about retouching, she became interested in manipulating and creating the digital imagery herself and gained a reputation as one of the most knowledgeable digital photo-retouching experts – all before Photoshop was created. This early and extensive work on creating the perfect look for each subject carries on through her work today.

 

 

Annie entered the world of social public relations with a stint at The Callaghan Group, who at the time represented an internationally acclaimed coterie of clients from Patti LaBelle to Harry Winston Jewels. Annie met the late society publicist Roger Webster and his then partner Jason Grant.

 

Immediately recognizing her unique talent on the red carpet, they asked her to work as a social photographer with Webster Light Grant Communications. They introduced her to David Patrick Columbia and Jeffrey Hirsch, the social powerhouses producing New York Social Diary. David and Jeff offered Annie the opportunity to photograph the biggest and brightest events in fundraising, as well as, capturing NYC's social elite and celebrities for their on-line magazine.

 

Annie Watt’s philosophy is “doing well by doing good”, covering hundreds of charitable functions each year and donating a portion of the proceeds of print sales to the fund-raising organization.  As a result, Annie’s bright smile and unflagging professionalism continue to make her one of the most welcome photographers at any A-list event.

 

The traveling exhibition is timed to coincide with the launch of a new specialty photo agency, www.anniewattagency.com. The combination agency and website is designed to make it even easier for her clients, subjects and the media to access her ever-growing body of work.

 

Anniewattagency.com will feature Annie's work; along with her other talented associate photographers.  This group of creative professionals will reach out to capture outstanding images across America and beyond. Current and past clients include: American Heart Association, French Heritage Society, Lenox Hill Hospital,  American Cancer Society, Casita Maria, The Couture Council, Fountain House, Fund for Park Avenue, Hearst Publishing Company, Holiday House, New York Society for The Prevention of Cruelty to Children, The Lighthouse, NYC Opera Gala, Palm Beach Opera Gala, NYU Medical Center, Perlman Music Program, The Red Cross, Sundance, Susan G. Komen and Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to name a few among many.

 

About Galerie Dumonteil

 

Since 1982 Dumonteil Gallery in Paris has played a major role in the discovery and rediscovery of the greatest Figurative European sculptors from the 20th and 21st Century. The Gallery celebrates the glory and talent of all the Artists whose work was dedicated to the Animal theme from Bugatti to Guyot including Pompon and Artus as well as Camille Roche, Christophe and Derny.

 

In parallel, the Gallery has also focused on the Human Figure as well as the Colonial theme through the works of Coulon, Sarrabezolles, Boyan and Quinquaud.

 

Nowadays the discovery and promotion of the best contemporary wildlife sculptors take over our activity with the sculptures of Daviau, Fiori, Bodin, Owczarek, Voituriez, Bintz and Celotti. The paintings of Helmut Koller and the photography of Eric Pillot are an addition to this exclusive choice of contemporary works on the Animal theme.

 

In 2008 the gallery opened his first exhibition for the Asian public at 15 Sinai Mansions in Shanghai, setting a milestone for Dumonteil Gallery not only showing European Art in Asia, but also contributing to an artistic dialogue. In 2012 the opening of Dumonteil Gallery at 475 Park Avenue in New York was very well received.

 

Dumonteil Gallery on Park Avenue because of its space is the window for the U.S. and South American public offering monumental contemporary sculptures that are very much in demand all over the world. Year round Dumonteil Gallery organizes five temporary exhibitions and participates to Art Fairs globally:  Masterpiece London, Fine Art Fair Hong Kong, The Salon A+D New York, Palm Beach Fine Art, PAD Paris, Art Beijing, and Shanghai Art Fair.
