Tripped Up

A long day of shooting can take its toll, both mentally and physically. Working with an assistant can help alleviate the stressors that come with styling and decluttering a space. Often it is the smallest detail that can make or break an image. The tho...

2017 Thos. Moser Annual Catalog

By |April 5th, 2017|Categories: Syndicated Content|

The 2017  Thos. Moser Annual Catalog just came out and we are super pumped.  The graphic design and layout is really nice and speaks to the quality and craftsmanship at Thos. Moser.   On the inside spread of the catalog are some candid images of the Moser family.  We captured the large horizontal image of Thomas Moser and his two sons amongst all the stacks of wood.  You can view the entire catalog online here.

It’s all About the Details…..

By |March 14th, 2017|Categories: Syndicated Content|

Every year our website undergoes a proper refresh with updated images from a variety of projects.  It can be difficult to edit down the images from a years worth of work, and there are always images that were great but had to be eliminated.  A majority of our work is focused on larger compositions that show the overall space of a room, but often times its the details that really matter.   We noticed there were details shots that never made the cut because there wasn’t a proper category anywhere on the website.  With so many images in our catalog it was time to dedicate a portion of the website to featuring these details.  Hope you enjoy!

Interview With Sandra Tripp – Huntsman Architectural Group Huntsman Architectural Group has been a great client to work with.  We are very excited to share a recently completed video interview with Huntsman’s new Principal Sandra Tripp.  We sat down with Sandra to discuss her passion for design and her vision for the new Aquent headquarters in Boston, MA. Prior to the interview we had the opportunity to photograph the interior at Aquent.  The space is extremely functional and beautifully laid out.

Product Retouching – Furniture

By |June 1st, 2016|Categories: Syndicated Content|

Product Retouching – Furniture – BTS Timelapse Product retouching is all about fine tuning the subject to ensure it looks as good as possible.  A majority of the post production work on this shot is aimed at cleaning up the area so there are no distractions whatsoever.  The beauty of a simple background like this is it really lets the product command center stage.  We knocked down the glare on the right chair and enhanced the highlights and shadows on both chairs to further define the shape.  Beyond that it was cleaning up the floor and dodging and burning the areas that were recessed.  Then there was the white wall.  At first glance its quite hard to see any problems.  By pulling down a curves layer you can quickly see the areas that need attention, mainly the top of the frame where the shadows were inconsistent.  There wasn’t to much heavy lifting in post but rather a refinement and cleanup of what was already there.   (before)(after) Client: Thos. Moser

Homeless in Vacationland

By |May 3rd, 2016|Categories: Syndicated Content|

Homeless in Vacationland – Trailer We are are very excited to share the trailer for ‪Homeless in Vacationland, a documentary film exploring homelessness in Maine. The aim of the film is to bring awareness to the problem of homelessness, it’s causes and shed some light on the potential means by which we can help those affected. We will be wrapping up shooting footage and interviews this summer and working on post production / editing this winter. If you would like to help in any way, or if you have a story or experience to share, or if you are in a position of government power or community leadership and would like to help, please contact us as soon as possible. We would also love to have a respectful sit down interview with Governor Paul LePage to add his voice regarding his personal experience with homelessness and his view on how to best move forward in helping reduce the number of people effected by homelessness in Maine. These are a few takes from walking around a homeless encampment.

Trafford – CD Photo Shoot

By |April 25th, 2016|Categories: Syndicated Content|

Trafford – CD Photo Shoot We love shooting portraits, so when Chris Trafford asked us if we wanted to shoot the imagery for his new album we were totally on board.   We’ve worked with Chris in the past on a few aerial projects but this was the first time he was in front of the camera.  This guys is chalk full of ideas and concepts and had a pretty clear vision for exactly the type of cover he wanted to create.   The concept for the cover was based around the lyrics of the song (and album title) “Rebel For Hire” which can be heard here.  Pick up a copy at Bull Moose or on iTunes, its good stuff!! Bonus Item:  This good looking Biddeford resident wondered over to the photo shoot, how can you not take his picture?
