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:

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!

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.
