Pentagram – Montessori Life

This was shot last year for Pentagram and I love shooting for them. Most of the time when they commission me for a job, I have creative freedom. They asked me to shoot the cover for Montessori life. The direction was to use knobless cylinder blocks to show diversity within Montessori schools. I sketched out a few ideas and they loved them. I executed both but one went with one for the cover and it looked amazing. I always look forward for more Pentagram shoots.

Stage Completions

I was recently recommended for a photoshoot. This one was quite interesting….I had no idea of what I was photographing until the moment it arrived. The info I received was “a device for oil rigs”….that was it. The client showed up with the device before anyone else, so he explained to me what it was. Not really understanding oil rig term, Its a key and dissolvable ball to help the pump rate during fracs. As I started to shoot this metal pipe key, I realized it sucked in light and never gave it back. It was a fun challenge shooting it but the client loved the shots and the exploded view and was super satisfied.

WWF – Glowing Regrigerator

I recently had the opportunity to shoot for World Wildlife Fund. It was a story on how to minimize food waste in your fridge. The concept was to have a glowing refrigerator. I was super excited and immediately started to think of how to get this done. With the help of Adam, we had figured just use one of our refrigerators, my apartment, the studio, anyone’s refrigerator. Of course most of the fridges were not clean or exactly what I wanted.  We thought long and hard about this. Long story short and with the help of an appliance rental, got one delivered and picked up in a week and I got the shot I wanted. Here is the original image and the image in layout. WEB_WWF_Fridgeweb_Copyart_WWF_Fridge

Southwest Cocktails

I started shooting for Southwest just about a year ago. Every month they feature a cocktail from a bar/restaurant. It is really fun and learn how to make some interesting cocktails. The great thing about shooting cocktails, my home bar have been growing rapidly. Here is a behind the scenes shot and a few drink shots I like.
