Working with Carman Ranch is an opportunity to do what we’re very best at. Cory Carman and her family have such passion for their work–and what John excels at is digging in, exploring with his camera and then finding a way to express that passion in a way that’s beautiful, informative and compelling. We visited the Wallowas in the late Autumn to capture the places and processes that make Carman Ranch so special.

night view of L'Angolo Estate Winery tasting room

Last Summer, we worked with the team at L’Angolo Estate on photos of their gorgeous new tasting room. Savvy Andrew Henschied of Pine Black Consulting oversaw the art direction and website project which you can see at their website https://www.langoloestate.com/. We spent one very long day, getting up in time to catch the sunrise. The project covered vineyard views, shots in the production areas, portraits, lifestyle images with models and portraits of the winemaker, Chase Renton.

I’m super excited to see our photos in the current issue of Gluten Free Forever magazine. These were both such fun projects to work on. First, a story featuring Troy McLarty of Bollywood Theater fame, and another travel story highlighting all the terrific gluten free offerings in Portland. You can learn more about the magazine at the GFF website. With dozens of locations to visit, some of the highlights for me were The Broth Bar, New Cascadia Bakery, Ground Breaker Brewing, and Harlow. And it was nice to see our superstars, Imperial and Ox mentioned as well. Portland, Oregon is truly headquarters for all kinds of great food.


Food photographs for fitbit’s social media campaign & blog

It’s been crazy-busy shooting in the new studio these last couple of months.  New work we’re really jazzed about is partnering with the creatives at fitbit to illustrate their blog posts about healthy eating habits. Here are two shots I’m particularly stoked about; I love the inclusion of a person but treated as a prop, or design element. Check out fitbit’s active blog here:

Alden’s Organic Ice Cream images for social media

Alden’s Organic Ice Cream and their agency came to us to create a set of beautiful images to reinforce their new branding.

While making these, we channeled that great sensation of what’s it’s like to dive into your very own serving of fabulous, decadent ice cream.

It’s great to start to see these and other images our team created for Alden’s populate their site and start to get shared in social media.

Staff Portraits at Creative Agency

A common situation we’re often asked to help sort out is, how can a business creatively photograph their employees in a way that can be added to, as the business grows? Or even changes offices?

Our answer: we came up with a snappy lighting scheme and photographed each staff member on a white background. We encouraged each person to get in touch with their inner diva and express why they love what they do at work. This set of images was for our friends at ORANGEWALLstudio.  They’re up ‘n running with this set of images, and as they grow we can come back and family in their new hires.
