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.
Once a month we get to shoot a featured cocktail for Spirit magazine (and slowly increase the size of our home bar).
Details always let’s us do fun stuff. We unleashed all of our balloon animal skills on this shoot. And we now have a lifetime supply of cognitive enhancers.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Really excited to share this project!
Some how we were fortunate enough to have the coolest dioramas ever show up at the studio and got to spend a few days taking video and photographing them. The dioramas were created by artist Tamra Kohl and tell the story of Jarritos soda. In all Tamra created 9 different scenes to cover everything from the creation of Jarritos in 1950 and the fresh produce used in making the soda, to current day Jarritos being enjoyed throughout North and Central America.
Big thanks to the creative minds at GSD&M who brought this project to life. We’re not posting all the dioramas here on the blog, but more can be found on the Jarritos website and their YouTube channel.

This is the job that started the new obsession: GoPros. No thanks to our assistant Nick who text’s pictures of GoPro accessory displays to Adam whenever he walks by one.
