Coldstone Creamery is a client we’ve worked with for quit awhile. Every time we shoot I enjoy the process as well as the sweet taste of every item we shoot. Here are the last couple of seasonally promos followed by some behind the scenes snaps!

TriVita is a company designed for the greater wellness of its customers. TriVita makes products and dispenses information to better the awareness of the physical, emotional and spiritual health of the folks that buy their products.

I had the opportunity this past September to create a series of product images with and without water effects and splashes. A big thank you to TriVita and the creative director as well as my two great assistants who were responsible for the water rigging.

ASSIGNMENT: New packaging for long time client Bar-s Foods. Make our Hot Links, juicy, plump but don’t burn them…and most importantly make them pop off the grocery store shelf.

This was the directive from the  marketing and creative services folks. We needed to create a way to control the fire coming from our make shift BB-Q set up. Our friend Jeff Sears from Southwest Scenic Group came up with a plan. Jeff put together a series of 3 valves along with hand-made burners with various size openings. This enabled us to control where the flames were, how high they would reach and give us the ability to turn them on and off quickly to avoid trashing the styled product.

Here are the shots and how they fit into the final packaging:

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

When I think about making photographs it’s nice to be simple and quick…minimal equipment…no restrictions and just react to my surroundings. I spend so much time in the studio (which I truly love) it’s good to get out and see. Here are the results of my two short trips.

Driving around and rushing to get errands completed…I slow to make a right turn and out of the corner of my eye I see a giant sandwich…hmmm that looks tasty. What a shocker it is to see food shots I’ve done on the side panel of a truck…like a billboard on wheels.

It’s always nice to be surprised!
