I get a call and am asked by the client, "I have a product, what can you do for me"? Say that you have a bottle that needs to be photographed. It needs to be shot mostly for use on a website - to help "sell" the product. I’d like to keep the background clean so that the customers stay focused on your product, its a really beautiful product after all! So many things coursing through my mind; perspective, lighting,
Who knew how important color choice can be to the impact of a job? Well, of course Nick knew! That's what he does and does best. High impact. Take a basic product and will it grab people automatically? Probably not.

Collaborations that are of a creative nature are a bit like a marriage, some give and take, some hard work, great ideas, thinking out of the box and some hustle.

The crowd was very friendly and enthusiastic, that is always a plus when you are gigging out!
Hope everyone had a safe and fabulous Independence Day weekend. We got a lot of rest and enjoyed the beautiful weather here with a few walks on the beach. Now we are gearing up to create some new work for the portfolio. We can't wait to share some new things with you. Here is an email image we sent out a few weeks ago. Developing some new pairings from the work we created last year.
We had a busy week and are looking forward to a busy June and upcoming project in July. Now if the weather could start to cooperate we would really have an amazing summer. Here is our latest email image that we sent out to current and prospective clients. Let us know what you think of it.
A few weeks ago Debbie, Sophia and I took a trip into Boston to go to the Museum of Fine Art. Our wonderful consultant Selina gave us a membership this year and we have been excited about this great excuse to have a nice day out. Our daughter Sophia has been the one pushing the most, asking every weekend if THIS could be the weekend we go in to the museum. My favorite exhibit was the Samurai. The amount of detail that
Last week I was busy doing some minor set building. We have been prepping to shoot some test shots with some new food stylists. We are going to be creating some beautiful new editorial food images to compliment our portfolio and our food packaging shots. We have a large quantity of props but not as many surfaces as we would like so it was time to use those artistic muscles in a slightly different way than when I look
