One of our long-time clients (suspenderstore.com) has added some new items to their product line … bow ties! Today we shot, edited, and delivered the first 14 colors.
This week Wonderful Machine sent nearly 5000 creatives this piece promoting my work. We’re looking forward to gaining more traction in the food/beverage industry as we continue to work with the various NW breweries, distilleries, and restaurants. If you’re ready to refresh the look of your marketing materials or promote your brand through creative imagery, give us a call!
Catch my friends Rob Grimm and Gary Martin over at RGG Photo as part of theFstoppers workshops in the Bahamas this coming May. If you’ve ever wanted to get hands-on learning of how to create commercial images for the beverage industry, or get more technical with studio product lighting, this is a rare opportunity to learn from someone with decades of experience working with top ad agencies. If you missed the original airing of courses on CreativeLIVE, you can still catch them and get a good idea of the techniques and teaching style Rob will be expanding on in the Bahamas. There’s more information on the Fstoppers Workshops below. I’ll be there helping out the guys at RGG Photo between drinking cocktails and working on my tan. I hope to see you there!
"This May, Rob Grimm will be teaching a hands on, highly specialized workshop in the Bahamas in conjunction with Fstoppers.com. We are teaching 1 workshop on creating commercial images for the beverage industry with a specialty in liquids and another highly technical workshop on studio product lighting. Both workshops will be hands on where you will become part of the crew, operating the cameras, working as a digital tech, creating the composition, and helping to guide the outcome of the photo shoot. Our goal for both workshops is to give you a practical expereince in a "mach advertising shoot.” What we shoot will also be up to the class. Rob and I will be bringing a variety of products and we will teach what the class wants to learn. We will also be providing in depth portfolio reviews after the event to help you create the best presentable portfolio in the commercial world. You will leave with a better understanding of how to sculpt light, using a variety of modifiers, shooting with medium format, DSLR’s, and a much better understanding on creating compelling compositions that sell products and build your clientele.

After moving to their new location, The Pilates Life decided it was time to refresh their website and contacted me to create a library of environmental images in their South Hill studio. It’s a nice open space with great natural light, so I decided to use that to my advantage and go for a more candid approach, instead of the massive amount of gear I usually employ. As a result, we were in and out within just a few hours. Here’s a few of my favorites from the day:
Wrapped up an interior shoot at Rusty Moose Bar and Grill last week, including two views of their main dining room and this one of their newly renovated lounge! Shooting the environments full of patrons was no easy task and involved compositing over 35 images. But the restaurant and it’s staff genuinely create a fun and friendly atmosphere in which people were happy and relaxed, enjoying the ambiance and making my job that much easier.
Last week we shot a series of images for SCAFCO, one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of steel studs. We spent two days with SCAFCO’s marketing guy, Paul Terrell, who provided art direction for the project. The first in the studio and the second on-location at job site where many of their products are being used. The images are going to be used in a variety of advertisements and in their 2014 catalog. We look forward shooting for them in Seattle and possibly even San Francisco later in the year. Here’s one from the shoot:
This month we were commissioned to photograph three new MAC Tools to be used on their packaging. To comply with their photo standards, we were limited in the post-production that we could perform, so we worked real hard to get it right in camera (as usual). Here’s one of the three images we created with very little editing:
