It’s getting to be holiday time and Sprouts Farmers Market is ready with some new and unique recipes to spice up the season. The studio was asked to create a series of recipe shots with a “Bon Appetite Magazine” feel where things are styled more loosely and have a believable feel. The creative director built the surface we shot on and the stylist choose a rustic approach to the propping.

A special thanks goes out to Tim, Maggie and Dina as well as the food-stylists Kim and Jill and my assistant Rob!

The University of Phoenix puts out a quarterly publication called Patriot. The magazine is geared to the school’s population of  students who have military service.

PS Studios contacted me to produce images for the cover as well as an inside spread. The concept was fun to execute…we needed to produce a 1950’s “Leave It To Beaver” feel. With help from the talented make-up artist Allison Pynn and prop/wardrobe stylist Abby Ripes we pulled it off making the client very happy.

The story is very cool dating back to the time of Napoleon. It chronicles how  the military created food items that could withstand the conditions of the battlefield and at the same time be appetizing, healthy and fresh. I was surprised to find that many of these food items became household staples that we use today.

Bar-S Foods recently merged with Sygma Alimentos one of Mexico’s leading industrial companies. The studio had an opportunity to shoot both recipe and packaging images for Sygma’s line of packaged cheese products. A big thank you to my crew and the creative services department at Bar-S Foods Phoenix!

I recently had the pleasure of working with the good folks from Moses Advertising on a project for their client A.D.H.S.  Arizona is implementing a plan for healthy meal preparation so folks can make better choices about the meals they make for their families. Our job was to create images for posters used to help with the initial educational process. Healthy recipes were created with cost effectiveness in mind that tasted great and were easy and quick to prepare.

Thanks to all who participated in the project!

Here are a couple of the posters…

What can I do when it’s hotter than hell outside and all my projects have wrapped  and I have some time on my hands…I know, create a challenge. Go to the store and buy a bunch of canned fruit and canned veggies and have a studio play date. It’s always a good exercise to try to find  beauty in the most banal things that are always around us on a daily basis.

So here are the results of a day of play!

I recently had the opportunity to work with the good folks at Sprouts Farmers Market shooting people on location and yummy baked goods in the studio. We had a ton of  bread, muffins and cookies at the studio… we could have fed a platoon of carb loving people…in the end all the goodies were donated to local food banks…of course less the stuff the crew inhaled!

There’s nothing like a turkey burger. Then add turkey bacon and guacamole and you have magic…make them sliders and you have three times the fun.

We’ve done work for La Victoria Salsa along with Riester Advertising of Phoenix for a few years. We all enjoy the projects as well as the creative team work on the shoots. This latest project featured Jennie-O Turkey Bacon. The shot is being used in FSI pubs in major newspapers.

A big thank you goes out to the crew that made this balancing act a reality.

Since 1996 I’ve been shooting jewelry for Scott Gauthier every year with only the exception of a couple of years for his three stores…two in Scottsdale and his new store in Santa Barbara. Jewelry By Gauthier is a premiere jewelry store that sells original designs with an architectural splendor that places Scott in the enviable position of  being a true artist/craftsman. The many books we’ve created together have been designed to fit with the concept of each collection that he has produced. There is always unlimited creative room to take chances with the photography, backgrounds, props and design. I thought I’d share some of this work:

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:
