Noodle Tornado for Fortune Magazine

When the phone rings and it’s Armin Harris from Fortune, the conversation usually starts with “So we had this idea… can you guys make it happen?”

This time is was a tornado of ramen type noodles for a story about Nestle’s PR flub with Maggi 2 Minute Noodles, their brand of instant noodles popular in India, and the rumor of lead contamination.

The tornado was made with a wire under structure that the noodles were than woven around. Then we flung noodles, liquid, and veggies around the tornado. The studio smelled like curry for a few days afterward.

Turkey Hunting for Field & Stream

Earlier this year John Toolan at Field & Stream came to us with an idea for a turkey hunting feature. They wanted to photograph hunters in a grassy field, but wanted the background all white to work with the page design. After kicking around the idea of taking models, gear, camera equipment, wardrobe, and more out to a field to shoot on location, we decided it would be easier and more importantly, the quality would be better if we brought the field to us. A car load of native grass and 600 pounds of dirt later we had our grassy field.

Huge thanks to Bill Sallans and Jessica Pages for the use of your pup Pilot.

And some behind the scenes shots. Apparently there were a large number of lady bugs living in the grass we dug up. We kept finding them in our car for weeks after the shoot.

Omega 3 story for Men’s Health

We LOVE photographing fish. They are such beautiful subjects. So we were super excited to get a call from Sally Berman asking us to photograph some fish for an Omega 3 story for Men’s Health. Love the way these pictures came out. Thanks Sally!

Money Magazine March 2016 Cover Story

Earlier this year we got to work with Ryan Cadiz at Money Magazine on their March 2016 cover and feature about being your own boss. So much of this feature really hit home for us. We too get to be our own boss…and bookkeeper, and janitor, and handy man, and marketer, the list goes on. But as the feature also points out, the reward is really something to savor.

Thanks Ryan for another great assignment, loving the bold colors and treatment we were able to play with on this one.

Wired Design Life Issue

Last summer, Adam, Nick and I were invited by Wired magazine to come to their amazing San Francisco office and shoot 10 featured products plus a cover for their yearly Design Life issue. It was 3 long days of levitating products and extreme angles with lots of focus stacks. The 10 feature products are sections openers for this special issue.

I think everyone was surprised by the quantity of gear we were able to fit in the studio. We deffinatly pushed it’s limits with two working sets going at a time.
