Mother NY-Stella Artois

Anybody who knows me is well aware that beer is one of my absolute favorite beverages, to shoot and to enjoy after a good gig.  Years back when I thought of clients I would love to work with, Stella Artois was always among the top of my list – beautiful aesthetics, clean lines, a clear visual identity & excellent beer.  I’m very happy that I now got to collaborate with Stella on their Global Holiday Ad Campaign, through Mother NY.  It was as much fun shooting the dancing chalices and bottles as it was to scream STELLLAAAAAAA all day long, trying to impersonate Marlon Brando in ‘A Streetcar Named Desire.’ It easily turned into one of the most enjoyable assignments of the year.  The creatives at Mother were wonderful partners in this endeavour and my team made me look good, once again.

Wishing you all very Happy Holidays and a great 2017 – Cheers!

The joy to be selected again by Archive for ‘200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide 2016/17!  I was planning on working as a lifeguard in Hawaii, but it got postponed by the jury of Archive.  Sending my sincere gratitude to all who have collaborated with me over the years to create beautiful work, and most importantly, shared a good time.

Maker’s 46 Campaign + BTS

We continued our series with Maker’s Mark for their iconic Maker’s 46 Bourbon Whiskey.  Since it is only made during the winter months, we’ve decided to shoot it on a frozen lake.  In the studio.  With real ice.  Well, maybe it’s easier to understand if you watch the video below…

New You Magazine – Feijoa Mocktail

If you didn’t know what a Feijoa & Kiwi Spritzer Mocktail looks like (or how to pronounce Feijoa), you are definitely not alone.  It’s delicious however, even without the alcohol…  If you feel inclined, here’s the recipe: (ingredients and drink shot for New You Magazine / ‘Sips & Bites’ article)

A Feijoa & Kiwi Spritzer Mocktail

Ingredients: 10 Lemon Verbena Leaves, 4 Mint Leaves, 1 Feijoa (Pineapple Guava, 1 Kiwifruit, 20ml Green Kawawa Tea Syrup, 10ml Fresh Lime Juice, 150 ml Mineral Water

Scoop fruit and place in glass with mint, verbena, lime and syrup.  Lightly muddle together (do not puree).  Top and fill with ice.  Fill 2/3 with soda water.  Use bar spoon to lightly mix.  Top with ice then soda.  Garnish with Lemon Verbena Sprig.

Feeling like changing the M in Mocktail to a C?  Add Sweet Vermouth and you will start pronouncing Feijoa (fey-yohuh) perfectly within a half hour.  Cheers!

Nutrilite – Liquid Body Shapes

Another demanding & fun liquid art campaign.  To show the benefits of Nutrilite milkshakes, we were asked to shoot & create liquid body shapes.  40 gallons of Nutrilite chocolate & vanilla milkshake were poured, splashed, thrown and splattered along our custom made plexi rigs.  Our well worn kiddie pool took another beating and the clean-up was epic. Thanks to Jiae, John & Kara for all their creative input, and to my fantastic team -> liquid stylist, botanical stylists, rig maker, assistant, digital tech and retoucher.

Skol Beer

Wonderful project to start the year, for Brazilian beer brand Skol.  Photographed different liquid spills, throws, pours, splashes and explosions to create the shape of the new Skol bottle.  Retouching was done by the fine people of Manipula.  I worked with the new PhaseOne IQ 180, an absolutely stunning digital back.  Many thanks again to Resource Magazine!  And here’s the link to the whole image series, including the stills of the bottles -> Skol Beer Brazil!

Apparently, lightning does strike twice. My portfolio was selected again by Luerzer’s Archive for ‘200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide 2012/13.’ I guess I will have to postpone opening my Beer & Candy store for the foreseeable future.

Re:lease, making of

I am very happy that I was part of this incredible motion project by Director Michael Wiehart.  If it’s true that ‘everything beautiful comes from hard work’, this short movie would certainly qualify.  To see Michael’s wizardry and my liquids / splash work with the Phantom Flex, go here -> Re:lease.  You can also watch behind the scenes footage here -> Re:lease, making of
