Over the decades in artistic partnership as photographers, Denis Montalbetti and Gay Campbell have re ned an effortless blending of the advertising and ne art worlds that has earned them longstanding international acclaim. As Montalbetti Campbell the married couple are masters of the studio and post-production, creating uniquely provocative imagery that arrests the viewer to ignite a confusion of interest and hope.

For the 20th Anniversary issue of Who – Australia’s best-selling celebrity magazine – Montalbetti & Campbell were engaged to create an elaborate double gatefold insert entitled Feast of the Stars, with twenty accompanying After Party portraits of the dream guest list. With the background options shot in New York and star-talent in Sydney under styling of Cassandra Scott-Finn, daily photo additions were sent to CREAM Studios for retouching and incorporation into the nal, glorious image.

 Montalbetti & Campbell were commissioned to develop an advertising campaign re- ecting the elevated services of All Nippon Air- ways. Working closely with their producers at IS Production and Creative Director Jonathan Teo, this extensive shoot was broken into inde- pendent schedules with the airplane, tarmac and red carpet developed in 3D by CREAM Studios, while the cherry blossom petals were shot at Mount Fuji, Japan. Talent was photographed mid-air to create a feeling of lightness, then sent to CREAM for post-production and inclusion onto the background skies, having been selected from the Montalbetti & Campbell stock library.
