One Concept Done Three Ways

For an article in Details magazine about Weight Watchers being the gold standard of weightloss programs, we settled on one loose concept. A gold fork that obviously stood out from the other flatware. However, when it came to exicuting the idea, we could not settle on one treatment, so we did three. The magazine ultimately went with the first image, but we were pretty big fans of the outtakes.

Scotch Glass for Texas Monthy

We love any excuse to buy a new Baccarat glass. The type distortion is real/caught in camera. It was printed on a transparency that hung behind the glass. The ice, however, is fake.



Twitter for Target

LatinWorks advertising agency came to us in mid December with the task of creating images for Target’s twitter feed that celebrated holiday traditions from various Latin American cultures. The timeline was tight but, thankfully there are 15 Target location in the Austin metro area and now we’ve seen them all.

Thank you Claudia, Chuy, and the rest of the LatinWorks team. Also, huge thanks to food stylist Tina Bell Stamos.




Golden Arches for Fortune

This past December we had the pleasure of hunting down a McDonald’s sign and breaking it to peaces for Fortune magazine. mcdonaldst_opener




Adam’s beekeeping hobby proved itself useful yet again. The bee smoker was the perfect tool to make little puffs of smoke.


And thankfully we did not set off the smoke alarm.



Happy New Year!

Thank you to everyone we worked and collaborated with this year, 2014 was amazing! The studio grew (literally, we moved into a former gospel church), our crew grew, and Adam’s book became reality.

Adam and I want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who allows us to call this thing we do “our jobs”. We look forward to making more props, making more messes, and making more pictures in 2015.

Speaking of messes, here’s our 11th and by far messiest O for O Magazine to date. The studio smelled like champagne for days.
