Michael was in lighting heaven when he found out he would be shooting the new Vibram Ultra-Light Seeya LS footwear earlier this year.  When the concepts came in, all the creatives involved knew that Michael’s lighting expertise would make him the perfect fit for the shoot.

The final photos were displayed in advertisements in SHAPE Magazine (below) as well as on the Vibram website.

Scroll down to view some behind-the-scenes from this fun shoot!

Vibrant colors spice up our shoe racks on the day of the shoot.  Who wouldn’t enjoy photographing such beautiful product?

Michael makes sure the shoe is rigged at just the right angle, perfecting his lighting between each shot.

Stylist, Brooke Kanal, works on the intricate details of the shoe as Michael sets up the shot behind the camera.


The final ad in SHAPE Magazine.  The client raved over Michael’s dramatic lighting techniques and thought the product was showcased beautifully.  Hats (and shoes, of course) off to all creatives involved for all the hard work put in to make this shoot so successful!


We recently had the great pleasure of working with Puma North America to produce some beautiful shots of their stylish new Alexander McQueen line.  Our photo was featured in Details magazine, September issue. (only the premiere fashion issue of the year!)

Here are some behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot.  Trust us when we say that no detail was left unturned.

Verne works his shoe magic on set, placing the shoes at the just the right angle to show off their best face.

Like a secret family recipe, where Verne finds his perfect-for-the-occasion props, we’ll probably never know!

The shoes take main stage, and we’re off to the races…


We’re very happy with how the ad looks, and the client is too!
