These Recipes ROCK!!!….

Last month we did yet another shoot for Darling Magazine. This next issues has a Cuba theme. We shot three recipes:

  • Strawberry Rhubarb Semifreddo with Meringue Drops
  • Rose Wine & Red Currants Granita
  • Matcha n’Ice Cream w/ Pomegranate, Toasted Coconut and Chocolate Drizzle

OH MY GOD! As we shot and finished each set up we sampled the goods, and with each shot we stared bug-eyed at each other with how amazingly good each tasted, one after another, the food stylist, Kara Dykert, saying “Right?!â€

I know, I know, I always sing the praises of this magazine and I am partial. But it is a beautifully produced quarterly and I am very proud to be able to contribute on a regular basis.

But if for no other reason than to get your hands on these three recipes, you NEED to get this issue! It hits the stands on the 15th.

APA/LA Off The Clock Exhibition…

This Saturday is APA/LA‘s big annual exhibition called “Off The Clock“. It is a curated show of personal work from professional photographers from Los Angeles and across the country. This year the curator was Julie Grahame and she has put together a fantastic show of 100 images with wide-ranging perspectives. The Gala will be this Saturday night at Santa Monica Art Studios from 7:00pm to 10:00pm. This is part of MOPLA which is an annual event created by the Lucie Foundation to celebrate Photography in Los Angeles. We have two images in the exhibition this year, but the whole show is really what’s worth seeing. You can register here or just show up to share in the excitement of this fun annual event.

9th Annual International Color Awards…

This weekend we picked up an Honorable Mention in the 9th Annual International Color Awards in the Professional Portrait category with our photo of Jamesen Re. With a huge international submission it is quite an honor to be included in such a varied and talented group of artists! I can’t say enough about the amazing family of talented people I work with. On this particular project that would include Stacy Quackenbush on sets & wardrobe,  Stephanie Daniel on Hair & Makeup, and my preferred right hand Jacob Rushing. And of course huge shout out to Jamesen Re for owning it!

Check out our category, but also take the time to check out all the winners at http://www.colorawards.com, there are some really great images to experience!

Flying Through Boston (BOS) This Week?…

If you happen to be traveling through Logan International Airport (BOS) this week (March 22-27) check out our life-size imagery in terminals A, B, C & E! This is actually a good execution of taking an existing image and tailoring it to the client’s needs! If you do see it… snap a photo of yourself next to it and we’ll share it!

Do You See Blue or Gold?…

It’s okay to say “Both!†While we have shared these photos in a few select venues, we have not shared the broadly as we were waiting for a few things to happy before we put them out to a wider audience. But now all cats are out of their respective bags so we can safely say… “Hey! Check out these images we shot of Dede Flemming (Co-Creator of Lightning in a Bottle and The Do LaB) and Jamesen Re (Producer / DJ / Entrepreneur)â€

There is a third in the series that we’ll share in our next post, but needless to say we had a blast shooting these images for Style Loves Adventure!

PDN – Photo District News

Dana Hursey featured in this month’s PDN “How I Got That Shotâ€.

We’ve been doing a bunch of interviews lately (did you see the one withe Suzanne Sease?) And we are super excited to be featured in the February issue of PDN! (Photo District News). PDN does a recurring feature called “How I Got That Shot†where they discuss a few images, and what the photographer did in order to achieve them. This month’s edition features our work! It looks at two images we did, one for a highly anticipated SLA (Style Loves Adventure) feature that will be out soon, and highlights the talents of Stacy Quackenbush and Stephanie Daniel.  The other is an image that made it into CA (Communication Arts) and features the set stylings of Oliver Martin and animal stylings of Animal Savvy. If you don’t subscribe to Photo District News, check it out on news stands now! The online version will be up in February!

Darling, It’s Darling Time… Darling.

Okay… We had a LOT of fun with this one! Here are a couple of images from a Recipe Article we did in the Brand New Issue of Darling Magazine. #DarlingIssue14

There were tarps, and deflector boards, and turkey basters (and brooms and vacuums and rags – oh my!). But at the end of it all we had some dynamic shots and eventually a clean studio.

Go get the latest issue and enjoy the recipes and all of the great articles in this finely crafted magazine!

Darling, It’s Darling Time… Darling.
