I’m Tamia, a Brand & Photo Stylist, host of the Creative City podcast, and founder of Tether, a community and agency for creative image-makers. I started this blog back in 2008 as an anecdote to a boring desk job, and it’s been a personal touchpoint ever since. Ain’t the internet grand?

I love connecting people, making ideas happen, and I never met a spreadsheet I didn’t like. If you ever want to talk about productivity apps, where to find the best ice cream, or the nuanced genius of Prince, get at me.

You want opinions? I got ’em—along with style tips, career advice, and random unsolicited advice. Let’s dig in.


I specialize in marketing strategy and styling for editorial, advertising, look books, and digital media. Working with national and regional companies like Hearst’s Sweet, Chaco Footwear, Zenni Optical, and Adorn USA, I put my eye for style and relationship-building skills to good use as a partner for brands looking to increase their influence.
