In Food, We Give Thanks!

In Food, We Give Thanks! We took the opportunity to celebrate American food traditions with creating these Thanksgiving foodscapes. Framed as pieces of art, we enjoyed the creative process and always welcome any chance to play with our food. More of these concepts are on the way with a special purpose.

Fact:: According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest pumpkin pie ever baked weighed 2,020 pounds and measured just over 12 feet long.

Fact:: Only about 5% of cranberries are sold fresh while the rest are turned into cranberry juice, sauce, etc.

Fact:: Three towns in the U.S. take their name from the traditional Thanksgiving bird, including Turkey, Texas (pop. 465); Turkey Creek, Louisiana (pop. 363); and Turkey, North Carolina (pop. 270).

New Concept Shoot: PF Chang’s London

PF Changs has arrived in London! We recently worked with our long time friends at PF Chang’s Global to create a new photography aesthetic for the launch. The first location in Europe, the London location photography needed to represent co-founder Philip Chiang’s love of art, music and food. Shot in studio, the images provide both a look into the menu and its creation with a very hands on story telling approach. The results are beautiful with thoughtful attention to detail. Thank you to the PFC team, all the best in London!

A very cool fact – the location’s past includes a jazz club where the Beatles famously gave The Rolling Stones one of their hit singles, I Wanna Be Your Man.

We recently completed a multi-day shoot with Mellow Mushroom – this was our first project with the Atlanta based team that flew out to Phoenix to shoot: 1 day on location shooting lifestyle photography followed by 2 days in studio shooting food stills and cinemagraphs.  It’s always great to be working with new clients that reach out to us from across the country! Stay tuned for more tearsheets, we’re just starting to see the project files going live.  Looking forward to the next round of shooting – thank you to the Mellow Mushroom team, cheers!

Case Study: Bar Louie

Bar Louie is a great client case study for us – we’ve partner with many concepts and hospitality groups over the years and our projects with the BL team have always been awesome. We’ve had a great working relationship that includes shooting a variety of both their still photography and motion needs: from their entire menu, to on-going LTO food menu items, cinemagraphs, lifestyle and architecture. The BL work is featured in a variety of advertising spaces to include web, social and outdoor. We couldn’t ask for much more in a client with tapping us so much in collaborating with the Louie rock and roll vibe. Check out this cross section of work (and their revamped website!). If you haven’t been to a Bar Louie, make sure to… they have close to 100 locations across the nation and make some pretty sweat cocktails and food.

Thanks so much to the BL team, EAT. DRINK. BE HAPPY and cheers!
