Sometimes a product just screams how to be lit. It was a dream come true shooting white geometric shapes on dark backgrounds…lots of fun with texture, highlights and shadows. We worked with Davidson and Belluso advertising creating images for their client Techlite Acoustics website. Here are screen shots of some of the pages as well some of the images.

It’s time to share some new work. We’ve been busy shooting some large food projects for Sprouts holiday recipes and store promotions as well as new branding photos for Shamrock Foods launch of their high-end beef, poultry and fish product lines.
It’s the season of all things food, family and fun. Happy Holidays!!
Some images for Sprouts Farmers Market:

The workshops have been in existence for 30 years. I’ve heard only good things about them and finally decided to sign up for “The Poetry Of Perception” led by Keith Carter. I must say between the insights into the personal approach to image making and my workshop classmates it was a truly amazing experience..in many ways life changing.
Over the last couple years I’ve been shooting a lot of personal projects because essentially that’s what got my excited about photography in the first place. I joined forces with two great photographers, David Moore and Art Holman and as a trio we give each other assignments, make prints and critique our work…this keeps us honest and accountable to one another to produce images.
The wisdom I carry from the experience is simply this: Be a brave image maker…don’t dwell, you have a life time to figure out what your photographs mean…there are no surprises in perfection…your photographs are your autobiography.
The images below are from assignments given while at the workshop and some images since I’ve been back.
I’ve neglected my blog for the last several months…been busy with work and lazy with the blog! I’ve recently been shooting a lot of jewelry. I want to share 2 recent projects. The first one came from Grip Design in Chicago for Archer & Swan Jewelry. We produced images for the website, look book and brochure. They were great to work with and the ideas were strong. We also have worked on several projects for the local custom jewelry firm 65 Allure. Images were created for their website and ads.
I love shooting all things shiny!!….http://gripdesign.com…http://archerandswan.com

The old is a promo poster I recently found while going through some boxes. It was a poster I sent out to announce that the studio was going digital…think that was back in the mid 1990’s. The design was by Steve Ditko and the illustration including the type was created by Frank Ybara. I had totally forgotten about the poster…just love what Frank did. Finding it made me laugh out loud!
The new is a couple of sea food shots done for Sprouts Famer’s Market and a few coffee shots I did for myself.

With this being a record-breaking hot summer, I’ve stayed inside doing some of my own work. Exploration is a wonderful learning experience and it helps to get the juices flowing. Once I get started and I see things happening it’s hard to stop…one thing inspires the next thing and before I know it the whole day is gone… Pure Joy!
