Brookside Chocolate with Anomaly

We could not be happier to share pictures from our Brookside Chocolate print and social campaign we shot with the fine folks at Anomaly NY last winter. The social posts started trickling out in early December, But the print images were a few months behind. It was so much fun to splash, chocolate, blast confetti, spray glitter, shoot powder, and basically make a giant mess in the studio for 10 days. There were social motion aspects as well but that will have to be another post.

Huge thanks to Milisava, Bonnie and the whole Anomaly team for such a fantastic concept and direction.

Psychic Experiments for IEEE Spectrum

Last year, with the reboot of X-Files, Adam and Robin watched all 10 seasons…start to finish…in a row…movies included. It took 10 months. We had both watched seasons 1-9 in college but wanted to rewatch them chronologically and together before we started season 10. We know there are dozens of amazing TV series to watch, but for us, X-Files has our heart.

Randi Klett knows our sci-fi love and and said she thought of us immediately for an IEEE Spectrum story about Cold War research into the paranormal. It’s so bazaar to read about real experiments of astral projection, mind control, telekinesis and bunny torture carried out by the Russian and America during this time.

The silver lining to all of strange experiments, however, is the technology that emerged which became the foundation for todays brain computer interfaces.

Beside the subject matter, Randi also pushed us to create photos that are not our typical style, but felt like grainy silver prints from the time when these experiments were taking place. We could not be more happy with the results.

Popular Science Big Machines

Excited to share another cover for Popular Science’s Big Machine Issue. Thanks Popular Science art department for the fun assignment and everyone at HOLT Cat for having us.

For this issue we headed out to HOLT Cat’s equipment yard in San Antonio to photograph their largest excavators. After capturing multiple options of the excavator buckets, we headed back to the studio to create the epic scene that would fill the hero bucket. Several models of aircraft carriers, battleships, buildings and various big machines were methodically styled and covered in 50 pounds of dirt. After some placement tweaking and dirt tossing our earth moving scene was complete.

Some behind the scenes shots of the cover in the making.
