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
We had another very successful food packaging shoot this week. We worked with a new food stylist, Karen Tully, and she did a great job. There is always a lot going on during a packaging shoot as we spend the morning playing with plates, sides, composition, etc. Once we pick a direction we continue to fine tune until we get things looking delicious and right where the client wants them.

Last week we had a new food client come to the studio for a shoot. This is a local client who is now creating baked goods mixes. We were lucky enough to work with Food Stylist Sunny Ricks again.

We have been very busy here at the studio. Deb has been following up our mailer with phone calls to Ad Agencies, Design Firms and Corporations in the Boston area and Connecticut. The momentum from our marketing efforts seems to be building as we have had lots of positive feedback and set up may portfolio showings. I have already been to Tank Design, Keiler and CDHM. In the next 2 weeks I have 6 more showings
We have the great fortune of working with a National food client for the past 10 years. Last year we had the even better fortune of them coming to us with a large project, 50 new packaging images! We are about midway through that project and it has been wonderful. The work is very meticulous, requires great patience and the lighting has to be outstanding. One of the fabulous things about this project has been getting the
