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!

Patrick Darby Photography – A Unique and Powerful Brand Solution

Having fostered and developed partnerships with dozens of national restaurant brands throughout the years, we wanted to assemble a retrospective of imagery samples from some of these projects and take the opportunity to publish the words from one of our closest partners (RUI) describing their experiences with Patrick Darby Photography.

Patrick and his team are dedicated to nothing less than the highest quality collateral deliverable… 

-Niall Bloom, Creative Project Director of RUI

 

In a nutshell, we’re not photographers… we’re creative brand partners and solution providers for the hospitality industry. We produce visual content that is designed to strengthen and support these brands and better the aesthetic experience they present to their prospective clientele. We strive to provide an unprecedented and unique blend of creative capability, efficiency and overall superior partnership experience that results in long term and prosperous relationships.

– Patrick Darby / Principal, Director of Photography

 

…We have had the privilege of working with Patrick Darby/Tonic photography on multiple branding projects over the last 2 years. Restaurant’s Unlimited is a growing company with 48 restaurants nationally with more than 20 distinct brands. One of the unique challenges of our organization is our great variety of concepts, restaurant design and menu content. Patrick and his team have been instrumental in defining, highlighting and communicating the distinct nature of some of the most important brands in our organization. They’ve done this by leveraging several of their key strengths:

Talent & Creativity: Tonic is able to deliver the highest quality photography representing unique brand voices while adding their signature look and feel. Patrick & his team are able to troubleshoot and problem solve in real time while always maintaining their high quality standards.

Commitment & Work ethic: RUI has worked with multiple photography teams. The focus, consistency and work ethic of Patrick and his team is unmatched.

Efficiency: Patrick’s team is small but mighty. Each of the individual team members are able to wear multiple hats and support projects with everything from planning & organizing, load in/load out, set up, lighting, food styling, assistant photography and everything in between.

Flexibility: The Tonic team is able to make adjustments on the fly to suit changing conditions: Late breaking marketing promotions, physical constraints, shot list adjustments and all the other things that can come up during an all-day photo shoot. 

Staff, Management and ongoing support: The team are committed to ensuring the best outcome for everyone by leveraging open & honest communication and feedback. Tonic team have not only supported our organization’s intent but have helped us further define, refine and capitalize on our brand identities”

A little Rock n Roll with Bar Louie and Patrick Darby Photography

Our friends at Bar Louie called us in March to help kickoff their “Limited + Additions” menu items. The project kept us in Arizona but took us out of our Tempe studio and inside one of their 80+ unit stores. The approach to the photography was in your face, with a little edge to them.
