Prevention Magazine – Pain

Prevention came to us with a story about pain. They allowed us to concept and gave us wide creative freedom. It was a true pleasure working on this project.







Fireworks- Happy 4th of July!

Fireworks for Men’s Journal. We could not help ourselves and had to set a few small things off. The studio was a little smokey for an hour.

Happy Independence Day, everyone have a safe 4th!

Dorm Food Redo

Erin Mayes from EmDash had a super fun assignment for us. Shoot dorm food. Make it look epic and yummy.  This was for a story about chefs reinventing their favorite dorm foods they made while attending Denison University.

I wish I would have been so creative with making grilled cheese 10 years ago.

Oprah – Feeling Good department

This spring we did several months worth of images for O Magazine‘s health and wellness section “Feeling Good.” Here’s a small sample of images built and photographed here in the studio.

O for Oprah

We’ve been meaning to post these for a while and got behind. Earlier this year we got to create several iconic “O”s for Oprah magazine.

These were truly an honor. As something I’ve looked up to for years, I still can’t believe we got the chance to make them.

Eat like a Pescetarian

Here are the rest of the outtakes for the February issue of Details magazine. This story was about a pescitarian diet, so we got a lot of fish. What you don’t see from these pictures are the two little bulldogs that were dancing around just off set hoping something would slip and fall to the floor.

Details – Panic Nation

Sometimes a client will ask us to do different variations for a story, but rarely are the variations each so cleaver that we can’t decide which is our favorite. Details Magazine did that to us twice in one issue!

For their story “Panic Nation,” ideas were thrown around ranging from oxygen masks to cracked eggs, to arrows pointing at a head. In the end the mask won, but the other options were so much fun we just had to post the FPOs. Look for the Pescetarian story outtakes in an upcoming blog post.
