The Coupe

Last year I had the pleasure of working on this super fun project—”The Coupe” with Hoffman Media. I love a good cocktail so shooting an entire book of them was a tons of fun! Check it out and pick up a copy for your home bar!

Kahiki Food Shoot

Loved shooting this fun food for Kahiki a while back!

Food – Loren Wood

Bellwether Collective

A while back I had the opportunity to work on some really fun still-life work for Bellwether Collective – a high-end custom wood tile company here in Birmingham. We got to create some really beautiful work and to take it even further they came in and did a custom wall in the client lounge of my new studio! (come check it out – it’s awesome!)

Here are some of my favorites from our shoot:

Flavor Profiles – Schlotzsky’s Austin Eatery

As a part of Schlotzsky’s new concept, Austin Eatery, me and my team got to make some really fun flavor profile posters that show off some of the delicious fresh ingredients the go into the delicious sauces and food that they offer. Always love working with the creative team at Schlotzsky’s and super pumped about how these came out — can’t wait to see them in person at their pilot Austin Eatery in Atlanta!

Galley & Garden – Birmingham Magazine

Got to shoot this story for Birmingham Magazine a while back on one of the new members to the Birmingham food scene – Galley & Garden. Great eats – if you haven’t been yet check it out!

Sandwich Shop Test Shoot

I try to make time for test shoots when I can – it’s always refreshing to have full creative freedom to style/light/compose and shoot a project however my team I want, and allows to me to try out new things that I can’t test on a paid job. This shoot was a blast and I loved testing out some new lighting techniques at the time that I now apply regularly to my work!
