Some examples of some sizzle reels our team can produce:
…but it’s our job to make it look delightful! This was particularly the case at a recent shoot (our third) we did for American Crown catalog. The Alameda beach is located right on the edge of the San Francisco bay; with it’s sweeping views of San Francisco and the Bay Bridge it offers an ideal [...]
Selecting images for this post brought to light the variety of photography we provide for our business and corporate clients. From photo stations and big bashes, to photographing notables and multi-day conferences. Here’s a smattering of favorites from recent months!
Babies ruled here a few weeks ago when we had the apparel company, American Crown, here in the studio to shoot their upcoming catalog. Disney music, snack packs & juice boxes, parents making silly faces to get a smile from their children, and racks of clothing filled the studio all day long. Jack did a [...]
We’ve photographed a number of authors for their book cover photos and public relations use, as well as another book cover for Cheesemonger, that Myleen shot at our old studio space. Our next book cover is for Dangerous Curves, a collaboration with a long time friend, book designer and artist Pete Halverson whom I went [...]
We recently made a new friend of David Jedeikin when his P.R. Maven sent him to us to get portraits for his self-published travel book Wander the Rainbow. We took some time to chat prior to the shoot and were intrigued by his story. It looks like Amazon may be the best place to get [...]
I was recently commissioned to create a custom stock library for the wonderful San Francisco Center for the Book, in neighboring Potrero Hill. I pass the center twice a day on my commute but hadn’t had a chance to stop by and investigate their classes. They provides tons of expertise on letterpress, bookbinding, printing, and [...]
We all enjoyed the in-studio shoot last week for Firefox mobile’s Press Reviewers Guide. (You’ll notice the screens are still blank with these shots as Firefox will eventually be overlaying their own screen shots.) Everyone is stoked about Firefox Mobile 3.6 and using it with Nokia’s new N900. It seems the N900 is already a [...]
Meet Gordon Edgar – author, blogger and cheesemonger at Rainbow Grocery Cooperative here in sweet ‘ol San Francisco. I had the opportunity to photograph Gordon for this image featured on the cover of his memoir Cheesemonger: A Life On The Wedge published and distributed by Chelsea Green. Chelsea Green is a unique publishing company that specializes in books on [...]

Well tonight our good friends Chris and Heinz stopped by the studio and since we’ve got a commercial shoot for a beer company tomorrow morning, I decided to test out my lighting on them. The shots came out just like we planned. For commercial shoots it’s always key to make sure you have a vision [...]
We’re proud to work with a newly green-friendly vendor, Patemm Pads, who now makes all of their products from organic material. In our last photo shoot, we worked with 6 babies in an effort to get that ‘signature’ image. It’s fairly challenging working with babies, but I think we secured at least one or two exceptional [...]
Photography has been used to sell real estate for a long time, but there’s a lot more to it than just taking a shot of the space. While digital cameras have enabled almost anyone to take photos, when shooting real estate (interiors and exteriors) it’s important to keep several things in mind. First off managing [...]
Today we’ve got a product shoot going on at the studio and if you were on Tehama you probably saw the big truck that we loaded all the stuff in from. Here’s a quick snap of what’s going on just now…
Lulu, Napa, California, 2008 – Photo by Jack Huynh I couldn’t resist posting this shot that Jack recently took for the Napa River Inn.
I recently did some interior work for Haworth and had the chance to connect with Pablo of Pablo Designs. Haworth upgraded their showroom in SF and i was pretty impress by their zen like work design. Pablo and Haworth have been working together for over 10 years. Pablo is surrounded by his latest LED lamps.
We began shooting Hartmann Studio’s product catalog this time last year. For this session we photographed the largest array of items yet, over 80 products in three days. It looks like product work could become our new forte.
So we shot another Do-ers Profile for the Nob Hill Gazette and it’s published in the current issue. As it says in the print version, in the photo are: Michael Barcun, co-chair of the Museum of Performance & Design’s Song & Dance Gala, A Celebration of Carol Channing on September 26 at the Fairmont Hotel. [...]
Here’s Myleen standing in while we were setting up the lighting for a cover shoot for the Nob Hill Gazette. It was at Harry Denton’s Starlight Room where we’ve shot many events before and did portraits of Harry years ago. It’s a pretty nice spot and during the day you get a totally different view [...]
This Saturday I photographed some lifestyle shots for Kris Nations Jewelry in Golden Gate Park. The Nations sisters are passionate about the craft and I love that most of their materials are recycled metals and vintage glass bits and that everything is made locally in their Oakland studio. They have some beautiful pieces and I’m [...]
So we did some food photography for Careme 350 and man they have an amazing deal that I had to post about. The 2nd and 4th Thursdays of August and September they have $3.50 3.5 course meals for both lunch and dinner. Now that’s tough to beat especially since it’s the culinary academy students preparing [...]
