"We wanted a modern story with really interesting looking models," says Elke. We found the look we were after with some models from SMG and Heffner. We all came away from the shoot super happy.

Portland photographer George Barberis embarked on a new image campaign last month for client Little Garage Shop. https://littlegarageshop.com/, I am sure you will agree the images are simply magnificent. LGS Studio is a contemporary ceramics company founded by Thomas Renaud & Noel Hennessy. "The client's wanted strong graphic images of product to show the natural and architectural design elements and textures inherent in their designs," says George. We chose to use strong colorful backgrounds and a sense of humor to show off the sculptural bowls and vases. I am super happy with the result and so were my clients." says Barberis. More images from George can be found at www.sallyreps.com/george-barberis or www.georgebarberis.com.more
I am pleased to announce that commercial interior and food photographer R. Brad Knipstein has launched a new website. For those of you who've launched your own websites, you already know this is no easy feat, especially for a photographer as prolific as Brad. In fact, Brad edited down more than 1,000 images to showcase a selection that best represents his work. “I have the opportunity to shoot so many wonderful interiors and exteriors for clients, advertising agency and designers. It’s really hard to narrow them down,” says Brad. “With my new website, I try to focus on those images that really capture the sense of a place and tell a story.”more
Last month I had the pleasure of traveling with stylist Molly Hurd and photographer George Barberis to Joshua Tree where we were planning a gorgeous test shoot. Molly and George had been wanting to work together for a long time and finally, the stars aligned. Normally, I don’t travel on shoots—though I wish I did more often. I was happy to leave my office and Seattle’s record-breaking “snowmageddon” for a warmer climate.
With the mood boards completed, shot lists outlined and spring wardrobes packed, we headed south to Palm Springs. We arrived in the desert city under cloudy skies and light sprinkles. Given the northwest winter chill we’d left behind, Palm Springs’ 60 degrees and a light mist seemed balmy.more
