Stone Hill Winery | Lifestyle Ad Shoot

ADVERTISING PHOTOGRAPHY | LIFESTYLE | MISSOURI WINES

Thought it might be fun to pull together a few images from a past advertising project I shot with Stone Hill Winery. The shoot took place over two days and consisted mainly of harvest photos, but also touching on the lifestyle "sociability" aspect of wine. It was a fun project, and I learned quite a bit about the process. 

Stone Hill is actually Missouri's oldest, and most awarded winery in the state and they have an absolutely beautiful winery that you've got to see! Well known for the very tasty Norton grape (which you can see in the photos below) and also here's a bit of trivia for ya ... the Norton happens to be Missouri's state grape. Yeah, I didn't know Missouri had a state grape either! 

So anyway, if you ever make it to Hermann Missouri, do yourself a favor and stop by for a tasting and tour. Check out more of their great Missouri Wines at: http://stonehillwinery.com/ and thanks for reading!

Monster Energy | Product Shoot

PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY | LOCA MOCA DRINK

Here's one of my latest product shots with Monster Energy.

Since I'm such a coffee junkie I was eager to take this one on, and I felt there was no better way to show off this product than having a can of Java Monster Loca Moca exploding out of a large pile of coffee beans. I think we nailed it with this one.

As a commercial studio, we take in a variety of different types of projects each month which tends to keep life more interesting for me & the crew. But of all the different types of projects that come across my desk, I have to say that my favorite work always revolves around Product Photography of some kind! 

Why product photography you ask?

Great question. Shooting products and making them look as interesting as possible, creates endless challenges for us on the set. (and yes, I love a good challenge) The bottom line is, I love photographing products because it tends to be on of the most challenging and rewarding disciplines to work in. If done well, an inanimate object can inspire emotion from the viewer in the same way than a well executed portrait might.

EDITORIAL ASSIGNMENT | MAGAZINE PHOTOGRAPHY

I do a fair amount of magazine work which I enjoy immensely.  Sometimes when an art director or photo editor calls, they might have very specific direction for me, while other times it's pretty much a wide open canvas. When I go into a situation where I have creative license with respect to making the picture, I will look for scenarios that "tell" as much of the story as possible without having to use words. I very seldom know specifically what the piece is going to say, so as a general rule I will try to imagine the image running with no copy. This helps me a great deal when trying to decide on a location, props, gesture etc ... Below is an example of layering story elements into the frame without being excessively overt. It's an absolute favorite of mine. There are so many layers to this photograph, it just may be my favorite portrait from 2016. -td

OG Anunoby | Indiana Hoosier

MAGAZINE PHOTOGRAPHY | SPORTS PORTRAIT

Editorial portrait photography has got to be one of my favorite disciplines. Especially when I get to work with a top notch talent like  OG Anunoby. I've been fortunate enough to work with OG a few times now, and he's just an amazing guy. If you're not a sports fan I'll give you a quick run-down. OG plays college basketball for the Indiana Hoosiers. He's just a Sophomore this year, but he's already making tremendous strides and contributions for his team in the NCAA. OG is a reported 6'8, 235 pounds with a 7'6 wingspan! To help frame that little nugget of information, Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard and Giannis Antetokounmpo play in the NBA, and are considered extreme outliers for possessing 7'3 wingspans. Whether or not those numbers hold true, OG is indeed a true physical specimen to behold. I'm glad to call OG a friend, and I am beyond excited to see what the future holds for this young superstar.
