As an opener for “Top 10 Fittest US Cities,” Shape magazine asked us to build a map of the US out of fitness equipment. I realize that the entire country may not be all that athletic, but we gave them the benefit of the doubt and made a heck of a sporty country.
The fine folks at Men’s Health asked us to photograph our favorite meal of the day, Breakfast! We were pleasantly surprised that one of the contributing chefs was from good ol’ Austin, Texas. Peta Hernandez of Maudie’s told Men’s Health readers how to make a darn good version of the Austin staple; breakfast tacos. And our very own backyard chickens supplied the perfect eggs. Plus we got to shoot food favorites from American baseball parks.
Our friends at Texas Monthly asked us to help illustrate a transcribed debate on the education budget shortfall in Texas. After reading the unedited round table discussion Robin and I sat down to brainstorm. Creative director TJ Tucker wanted to stress the conflict that loomed over the dinner table throughout the conversation. So we crated an opening image that focused on the meal. Andi Beierman designed the final feature.
This image was for an article on all of the modern armament that juice pumping ball players need nowadays.
My second shoot for Esquire was a food feature. These are all dishes intended to feed thirty some odd people. More people than you should ever invite into your home for a meal. We had lots of fun challenges like; make sausage gravy look appetizing. And; poach an egg. Fortunately I have Robin to help me with those things.
Since shooting this feture we’ve shot another for Esquire. I can’t wait to show that one off in a couple months!
My buddies at Spirit magazine needed to make an issue about Valentine’s Day and the Superbowl. We had a conference call, did some brainstorming, made some photo. SPD liked the cover enough to post it on their blog. Win!
For this project I collaborated with illustrator Will Bryant to create a stop motion animation for Bluetooth’s publication ‘Signature.’ We incorporated the cover copy and the logo into the illustration and filled the cover with Will’s signature style. I love seeing a cover done organically, let alone being able to display it as an animation!
