Client: Makabi & Sons [cookie company]

www.Makabiandsons.com

Services: Table top and Flat lay Product Editorial, Ecom shots, and Stop motion video

Set designer Lisa Garcia of Sonadora Studio and I created imagery for this cookie company. They needed some editorial imagery for their website, social media, and some e-commerce shots for their web shop. They are a new company so they just needed help with their visual branding from all points. Lisa creative directed, set designed, and prop shopped to create the vision they wanted. We shot 5 main shots of each cookie flavor and then shot some addition variations so that the client could have a small gallery of images to use for instagram. In addition to the editorial shots I photographed some fun e-commerce product shots on white and a short stop motion video.

Client: Genexa Pharmaceuticals

Services: Flat lay and Table top editorial product & Headshots

Genexa, a pharmaceutical company in Los Angeles, was in the process of re-visualizing their brand when they first came to me. Together we created fun colorful editorial product shots for their website and social media. We also did headshots of their entire team. They wanted a standard headshot and a fun silly one, so that when you scroll over the standard headshot it transitioned to the silly one. After recieving a basic moodboard I helped bring their ideas together, conceptualize their shoot, as well as styling on set.

Services: On Model e-commerce, Editorial Fashion, & Motion

Mina needed editorial shots for her lookbook and her website, as well as e-commerce shots for her sales side of her website. She didn’t need the E-com images knocked out onto white so we just left them with the original background. We also created a lookbook video that I shot, creative directed, and edited.

Services: Product Editorial and Fashion Editorials

I created a gallery of imagery for this local apparel company that needed visuals for their social media and occasional web banners, catalog, and marketing materials. They wanted fun colorful imagery. They needed someone who could work successfully on their own with very little direction, so that the owner could focus her attention on other parts of the business. With their stock of props I creative directed, styled, shot, and edited all the images.

Client: DPHUE [haircare company]

Services: Table top and Flat lay Product Editorial

Every month I create a handful of imagery for this beauty company that needs visuals for their social media and occasional web banners. They needed simple clean high end looking imagery. They like to have a mix of on location/lifestyle shots, as well as clean studio shots. With a stock of props I creative direct, style, shoot, and edit. Over the holidays we created their holiday sales campaign visuals and their “12 days of giveaway’s” social media campaign visuals. Those images were used for their website banner, their instagram stories, and their instagram feed. With only a handful of products in their line, I have to constantly be thinking up new ways to photograph their product in new and interesting ways.
