“I was initially hired by Amy Smart-Oosterhouse directly, this shoot did not go through an agency. They were looking for lifestyle and product imagery of their upcoming mattresses for multiple applications.
They also were looking for a “natural, honest” feel to the images. After a pre-production meeting and scout at Amy and Carter Oosterhouse’s property in Malibu we photographed six different set-ups featuring Smarthouse mattresses over the course of one day at the property.
Amy and Carter acted as talent while Carter also art directed. The images were used to launch Smarthouse’s mattress line and Amy and Carter couldn’t have been nicer (and fun) to work with.”
