Take a look at our latest and greatest product photography shoot for myorganincjuice.com.  Ben Fox, the founder of My Organic Juice, came to us asking can we make these juices ‘pop’!  He had tried the green screen route with another photographer and thing didn’t work out…  With the help of lot’s of acrylic, specialist Savage paper, black card, rulers, a very steady tripod and lot’s of patience we came up with the images!

If you’re asking how we got the labels exactly right, check back another time and we’ll tell you how we did it! 🙂

The “Recycled Runway, Vintage Trunk Show and Tea Dance” will start at 4PM on Sunday January 18th, outside the Cornell Musuem of Art opening with the Recycled Runway Show of designer couture made from all recycled / repurposed materials shown on gorgeous models. After the Recycled Runway the Vintage Trunk Show and Tea Dance will kick off inside the museum.

“As an eco-friendly salon we wanted to present something for fashion week to support our message that fashion and beauty can be environmentally concious while still being gorgeous. We loved the idea of a ‘Recycled Runway & Vintage Trunk Show’ as a platform for eco-chic beauty and vintage couture – something not normally represented during fashion week. It’s a great opportunity to highlight the recyled and vintage fashion from the local shops, while raising money for the Delray Beach Center for the Arts – an organization that truly enriches our community. A BIG Thank you to the Delray Beach DDA for putting together such an amazing Fashion Week every year – we are honored to be a part of it!” – Janine Shuman (NAKeD Hair Salon & More).

Linda + Sean – Two weddings in one day. The Abacoa Golf Club, Jupiter, FL.

“We have a challenge for the right photographer” said the voice on the other end of the phone…  A Vietnamese ceremony on the morning and a traditional western wedding in the afternoon. Sean and Linda celebrated twice in style, the wedding in the morning was full of Vietnam style and tradition, the giving of traditional gifts including a pig, honoring their ancestors and formal introductions and welcomes to the family.

The afternoon was a blast, the bride is a self confessed Star Wars nut and it showed.  After a beautiful Catholic ceremony the bride and groom entered the dining room at The Abacoa Golf Club, Jupiter, FL to an honor guard of lightsabers complete with a Star Wars inspired cake and decorations. A day full of love, fun and a little geeky fantasy.

How to be a fashion model – Model Photography

 

“I want to see if I can make some money modeling”…  Gary McComack came to us 4 months ago with this question and we got to work.  There are some rules that you need to follow and the rest we threw out.  I believe that the point of a fine portrait  photograph is to evoke an emotion, be that a smile or a grimace either suits me as long as they get noticed.

So we set about trying to get Gary noticed, and for all the right reasons.  Gary McCormack is 6ft tall and a very good looking guy, this helps!  Have a look at his portfolio, leave a comment and let us know what you think.

As an after-note, Gary has been working in various sportswear shoots and is currently working with Mega Models in Miami.
