Photography for The Four Seasons Resort

The recently renovated Talavera Restaurant at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale is a contemporary Spanish steakhouse that focuses on traditional Latin ingredients with a modern and innovative edge. The Four Seasons marketing team reached out to the studio to capture these stunning spaces and new menu photography in preparation for a large media release. To comply with brand standards, the spaces were captured with a human element which brought a story telling component into each image. From resorts to residential and corporate spaces – we always enjoy creating imagery to help support and strengthen each location’s special visual personality and characteristics.

Patrick Darby Photography Shoots P.F. Chang’s Global NEW Shanghai Menu

P.F. Chang’s Global NEW Shanghai Menu – A big perk when working with a brand that operates over 300 locations in 23 countries is the opportunity to create something truly special when entering into new markets. This was just the case with the Shanghai menu that involved over a week of shooting and the opportunity to tell a unique story for each menu item. We couldn’t be more proud of the work and our crew. A big thank you to the P.F. Chang’s team for this opportunity and our continued creative partnership. Patrick Darby Photography is located within tonic photo studios near the heart of downtown Tempe Arizona. Reach out to schedule a portfolio review or discuss your next project, we would love to meet.

Behind The Scenes with The Tilted Kilt

Every now and then we like taking the opportunity to turn the camera on ourselves with giving people a behind the scenes glimpse at the production that takes place at tonic photo studios with Patrick Darby Photography. This TK shoot we focused on shooting new menu items and LTO’s (limited time items) for a new menu design that included 5 new burgers, burger group shots and numerous cocktails over the course of 2 days.  Did we mention it was BURGERS AND COCKTAILS! Big thank you’s to The Tilted Kilt team – always a great day on set!

 

 

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).

Behind The Scenes with the PF Chang’s Global Team

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.

Looking forward to another great year working with this terrific team.
