Day Owl Rose All Day

I’ve been shooting a lot more alcohol and beverage brands lately and it’s been a really positive experience. It seems I’ve stumbled into a great niche, where my technical product photography knowledge and my fun lifestyle imagery can be perfectly married into one category. Needless to say, I’ve been loving all the shoots.

This most recent campaign I shot for Day Owl Rose. Their direction was classy and moody with hints of sunshine throughout. I really liked the direction and I think the shots turned out great as well!

New YouTube Product Photography Video

I’d never have thought that after only making three videos in two years and have less than 1000 subs on YouTube that I would attract a company to do sponsored content, but I was wrong. It was the best sponsor I could have ever hoped for. Boris FX, a company mostly known for their aftermarket video effects (that can be seen on all the Marvel Films!) asked me to test drive their new software for photographers called Optics. I always love trying out new technology so I agreed to play around with it and make a video after getting the hang of the program a bit more.

The results came through and I love the program, and the test photo I shot for the video. I wasn’t the only one who thought it was pretty cool too. The good people over at PetaPixle (my favorite photoblog) wanted me to write a little piece to be published on their site. Here is a link to the Article or Watch the Video Below.

A Rebrand for Key Cannabis

Who doesn’t love miniworlds?! When doing the art direction and execution for Key Cannabis’s rebrand it all started off with one phase “Unlock your mind.” I didn’t want Key to look like any other brand on the market. I didn’t want to use classic stoner troupes or really any visual language that the majority of cannabis brands rely on. Because let’s face it, if there’s one industry that could use a rebrand in general, it’s cannabis.

This industry is steeped in cliches and stigma and I wanted to rise above it to create something beautiful and thought-provoking. Like slipping into a new book. I am so proud of this work and I invite you to step into my miniworlds. I hope you find it relaxing, and whimsical. Just like if you tried the product.

The First Campaign I Shot on Film

Key Cannabis is always a fun brand to shoot for. They gave me the great opportunity and creative freedom to bring their newest SKU to life “Get Funkey”. I pitched them on a lifestyle and product photography campaign steeped in disco and funk, with some retro love thrown in. On the lifestyle portion of the photo shoot they let me go with my gut and my gut told me this had to be shot on film.
Using my Hasselblad 500cm and stacking some old-school prismatic spray and softening filters this campaign got groovier than I could have imagined.  Please enjoy!

The Photographic Adventures of Bat Dog!

I’ve been having a lot of fun making these images. Who doesn’t love cute dog costumes? I made a YouTube video to go along with it. The first one was so successful I figured might as well keep this momentum going! Check out the video for the behind the scenes of making these images come to life.
