If you've never been to Sapelo Island, GA then you are definitely missing out. It is a magical place to visit, consisting of a small community on a beautiful island that has the most spanish moss I have yet to encounter. The residents of the island are welcoming with a true southern hospitality. One of the things they are doing on the island is working very hard to sustain the Sapelo Island Red Pea, which is an amazingly tasty little legume that has a long history with the island and it's geechee culture. Check out the Sapelo Island Red Pea Project for more info on what they are doing. A few months ago I had the chance to travel out to the island for a shoot with The Local Palate to document some of the work they are doing and help spread the word about the sustainability of this pea. Here are the tear sheets from the magazine, which I though they did a fantastic job with! I look forward to visiting the island many times in the future...
It's always fun working with a great crew on a fun project. This shoot for the July/August 2014 issue of HGTV magazine was shot down in beautiful Savannah, GA on a perfect sunny day. The wonderful Elizabeth Demos did the prop styling and she kicked butt gathering all the "things" we needed (which was a lot). We all had a great time shooting throughout the day and the weather was just perfect. For some reason the crew always loves shooting random behind the scenes shots of the photographer, so enjoy those and no, I did not fall off that ladder! Go pick up your issue and enjoy the story and images, hopefully you find a little inspiration to help liven up your own porch!
Here are some bright and beautiful spring flowers to brighten up this hump day. I love the beauty and smell of fresh flowers in the house and office. Especially simple and clean arrangements, like the ones below.
The past months have been busy busy with food and travel shoots and I've fallen a little behind on posts so we are gonna lump some work together for all to enjoy. We have everything from national to local magazine work here and below is a little round up of what's what. Enjoy!
