Coffee Test

Fun fact (although if you know me – you definitely know this!) – I actually don’t like coffee at all and drink almost no caffeine (other than a chai latte from time to time!). I make up for it with my love for cookies though!

Shot earlier this spring with my friend and talented food stylist Nathan Carrabba at the studio.

Baking Test Shoot

Had some time this spring to test with some good friends and amazing stylists and I couldn’t be happier with the work we created! Here are some images from a baking test with Loren Wood (food) and Andrea Fanning (props):

P.F. Chang’s – Directors Cut

So pumped to finally share the directors cut of this spot that I directed for P.F. Chang’s last fall in São Paulo, Brazil. We had a killer crew and rocked the all-night shoot (book-ended with overnight flights – it was an exhausting week!). Thanks to both my top-notch American based crew and my incredible Brazil based crew for pulling this one off!

DP/Editor – Stuart Jones
Producer – Wendy Gordon

A Look back at 2017

Finally – it’s already February 2018 (how in the world is it already February!?) and I’m getting a chance to sit down and look back at 2017. What a whirlwind of a year! We had an amazing time and worked our butts off here at SDP and couldn’t be happier with how the year went. I’ll do another post soon about some of our new motion work, but for this post I wanted to really dig deep and find some of my favorite stills from the year. We had such a great variety of clients – both editorial and commercial – so there was a lot to pick from. It’s always a bit weird and also exciting to see a whole year represented in one big collage. I will say that when Whitney and I stepped back and looked at this survey of images we were both super excited and really proud of 2017. Here’s some of my favorite work – can’t wait to make more this year!




Some New Cookbook Tears

Sorry for the lapse in posts – with holidays and wrapping 2017 and family and travel and our retreat and kicking off 2018 with a bang I’ve hardly had any time to think! Here’s a random assortment of new cookbook work I did with Oxmoor House Cookbooks last year – still trying to wrap my head around the whirlwind that was 2017 so hopefully I can get together a fun re-cap post soon! In the meantime – Happy New Year!
