BJ’s MEMBER JOURNAL GOES DIGITAL

We were very excited to work on BJ’s first Digital Edition of their Member Journal.  Please check out some of our shots below, from fruits and veggies to smoothies to home and body.  Here’s wishing all of you a happy and healthy 2013!

Beautiful cover featuring four different types of smoothies – including one made from kale!

BJ’s is where to go for all of your fresh produce needs.

Everything you need to keep that cold at bay this season.

And check out some of the behind-the-scenes from this shoot:

Up close with the smoothies; these things are nutritional powerhouses.

Food stylist, Karen Tully, and her assistant create beautiful smoothies for the front cover of the digital journal.

Some of the many tools helpful in creating the perfect journal-worthy food shots.

EARTHKEEPERS FOR TIMBERLAND

We were really blown away with how our client, Timberland, used our photography from a recent shoot in the design of their rustic, moody catalog.  Take some time to check out a few pieces from the latest Earthkeepers Collection below; we hope you feel as inspired as we did after this shoot!  (Special thanks to Mari Quirk who provided some amazing surfaces for this shoot.)

Check out some behind-the-scenes from this fun photo shoot:

Tui Stark, stylist represented by Ennis Inc., expertly styles the Timberland bomber jacket in preparation for the shot.

The prepped shoes line up by number to take their turn on set with Michael.

Organization is key when shooting so much product in one day.  Michael and his team have a highly organized system (especially when dealing with product!) to keep the shoot flowing smoothly and seamlessly every time.

Studio dog Sophia says, “Wait a second, I want in on the action!”  Because what shoot is complete without our playful Golden Retriever?

CUMBERLAND FARMS – SURPRISES AROUND EVERY CORNER

Only three weeks into the new year and things are already “snowballing” here at the studio, so we wanted to share a the 3rd in a series of Cumberland Farms winter ads.  We had a lot of fun creating this shot on set, and hope the behind-the-scenes are as entertaining for you as the day was for us.

Our model gets up close and personal with a “snowball.”
