About The Good Brigade
The Good Brigade connects visual storytellers with agencies and brands that are looking for content that is both inspired and inspiring. We represent a carefully curated roster of photographers and directors who are known for their creativity, problem-solving ability, and collaborative spirit, as well as being genuinely awesome to work with.
We designed our agency to be nimble, poised to deliver for clients across categories and platforms.
The Good Brigade’s artists produce exceptional visuals in genres ranging from fashion, lifestyle, portraits, and sports to celebrity and entertainment. We’re also known industry-wide for our image-licensing and syndication capabilities.
In 2019, we formed a strategic partnership with VLR Agency in order to provide an even wider range of services for our clients. Through VLR, the Good Brigade is proud to facilitate talent booking, music licensing, artist and brand placement, celebrity endorsements, and live experiences.
Our agency was founded on a firm belief in transparency, and we carry that core value across everything we do, from developing our photographers to making sure our clients enjoy a successful, seamless experience each and every time they collaborate with us.
About Christina Dittmar and Lisa Curesky
Christina and Lisa, who founded the Good Brigade in 2015, share a passion for photography but bring very different skills and perspectives to the table.
Christina began her career designing album packaging for Atlantic Records, later working as an independent producer for assignment work and an art director for a major image-licensing company.
Lisa hails from the stock-photography industry, having launched the North American creative offices for two independent European-based stock agencies and served as director of photography in North America for a top London-based agency. She also served as director of product management and production for Corbis, the international stock agency once owned by Bill Gates.
As leaders of the Good Brigade, Christina and Lisa are devoted to bringing a 360-degree approach to artist management and client services. The tagline they wrote together says it all: “We’re on your side. We’re in it for the long haul. We’re the Good Brigade.”
