Pouring caramel and bending it to our will! Definitely the slowest ‘splashes’ I’ve ever captured, but just as interesting and challenging. Special effects rigger: Mark Borow. Food Stylist: Takako Kuniyuki. Post Production: Leo Rocha.
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.
Lovely collaboration with New You Magazine for opening feature of ‘Beauty Now’. See full gallery -> here. Retoucher: Simon Eugster / Prop Stylist: Mark Borow / Assistant: Anton Vancamelbeke / Popsicle taster: Ellis K. Mueller. Sorry, no leftovers…
Not sure if we can go any bigger than what we did this time! Mark built three more fish for Costa, among them a Steelhead Salmon, a Bonefish and an 11 foot Bluefin Tuna. Check out the impressive ‘making of’ and the stills from this series. We’re now up to 8 fish. Still no CGI, still no digital imaging, just fantastic art direction, model making and a few lighting tricks up my sleeves to capture each of them in-camera, in a single shot.
Looks like the Costa fish swam into ‘Communication Arts Advertising Annual 2011’! This year, the distinguished panel of jurors selected 141 winning projects from 4793 entries. The fish made it all the way upstream, into the small pond of 2011’s best advertising of the year. Thanks and congratulations to Tim Cole, Dave Holloway and Mark Borow.
Yes, this is real. No CGI, no digital imaging. Exceptional model making by artist Mark Borow and a little bit of lighting. This project originated at McGarrah Jessee Inc., thanks to the remarkable work of Creative Director Dave Holloway and Art Director Tim Cole.
