The Cobbler’s Children……

John and I always joke that people in the photography or communication biz rarely take the time to use their talents on themselves. That’s why we were super psyched to work with the talented people at Flint Design as they prepare to update their own website. They asked for “portraits with personality, something a little more than basic head shots.”  We had so much fun working with them to make this great set of photos at their studio. Katherine Sealy from Event Cosmetics came in to polish everyone’s look and we all collaborated on selecting clothing that looked great on their blue wall and made a cohesive set of photos. If your goals require a portraits that make you look great, give us a jingle. We can put together a shoot plan that is exactly right for you.

Can Font Restaurant

The oh-so-elegant Can Font is now open in the Pearl District. The Barcelona spin-off is getting rave reviews for its take on modern Spanish cuisine, in particular the arròs negre, the delicious squid-ink paella.  It’s great to see Spanish food gaining such popularity.

Cocktail Program for Hilton Brands

 

How fun it was to travel to Chicago to work with Hilton’s mixologists to photograph new cocktail recipes. The recipes capture the latest trends in cocktails, for instance, boozy afternoon teas or drinks made inside a smoking chamber. Over four days we propped, shot (and tasted, of course) more than 60 distinctive drinks.

Field Trip: Production Photos for Nancy’s Yogurt in Springfield

Who doesn’t love Nancy’s yogurt? I think every Oregonian worth their tie-dyed rainbow tee-shirt has heard the legend of the Kesey family and their adventures. It’s good that some things stay the same.

We’re working with Nancy’s and their branding team as they refresh their look. We’re sworn to secrecy, but watch for exciting changes to the look of their branding and packaging.
