Early this spring, George Barberis joined forces with stylist Beverly James Neel in studio to create a gorgeous body of new work. The pair came away with some amazing images of perfume bottles arranged in dramatic settings - “Very George” as we like to say around here. Rich colors and textures conjure up oil paintings from the Dutch masters of the 17th century. Why perfume? The bottles of Tom Ford and La Perla are themselves sculptural art. Designed with architectural lines and graphic elements, they pop off the page when set alongside delicate flowers and soft velvet fabric. George, who shoots for a variety of clients including Rejuvenation, Mascioni Hotel Collection, World Market, Nordstrom, Amazon and many others enjoys shooting both still life and interiors. "I love a lighting challenge,” Says Barberis." I like to create beautiful, textured vignettes using props and lighting." George enjoys partnering with stylists who get excited about the collaborative process. “Beverly brings so much to every shoot,” says George. “She has wonderful ideas and a great toolbox. There isn’t anything she cannot do.” Their collective creative force is seen in the work they do together!
