The theme of shooting plants and botanicals continues, this time for Unilever and ApotheCARE Essentials. Usually, clients tell me that they are either drawn to my images or that my style matches the visual identity of their products. It was a flattering first to hear that my bio description of how I approach my work was synonymous to the outline of their brief. With such agency-client-photographer alignment, our multi-day and multi-season project was bound to be worthwhile. I really enjoyed the scientific element of this assignment, visualizing phyto-extraction. It’s a pleasure to work precisely and in great detail to bring out the beauty of each ingredient.
Wonderful collaboration with world-class illustrator Ben Wiseman, for the launch of Westfield department stores at the World Trade Center Oculus. Lovely combination of photography and illustration, stills and motion.
I love to travel and when I’m not shooting stills, food or liquids in New York, you’re likely to find me near a beach, mountain or hot spring somewhere on this planet. The lovely people of Erwin Penland let me combine my stills of the new TUMI v3’s with travel imagery for our latest job with TUMI. An absolute pleasure to work with the whole EP creative team, especially Dana Kandic, art producer extraordinaire!

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…
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…
A lot of dedication and testing went into this shoot for the Spring 2014 campaign of French cosmetics client L’Oréal, for Clarisonic’s Festival of Colors launch. From creating a custom rig (expertly built by Megan Caponetto) to using Kapture laser triggers and Bron high-speed flash, everything had to be adjusted perfectly to capture the initial stages of powder explosions. Many thanks to Megan, Tim, Logan, Tomo & Sasha for their help and input throughout the assignment. Once more, I could rely on the support of a great team to blow stuff up and enjoy it!
