Monday morning found us photographing store displays for Adidas at the Westfield Mall in San Francisco. I had my assistant Marco with me to help schlep gear and assist with the technical aspects of the shoot. The store faces Market Street, and at 8:00 AM in the morning there is a fair amount of pedestrian traffic, so one of the challenges was trying to capture the store front free of people. Our job also took us inside the store to photograph in-store displays. Our assignment was to document the XBYO. For this collection adidas Originals enlisted the skills of famed Japanese pattern cutter Satomi Nakamura from Japanese fashion label COMME Des GARÃ‡ONS.
We’re happy to say the Viridian Bay’s website is up, featuring our photography, and it’s quite a show piece. These photos were captured during a six day photo shoot in January.
We don’t promote product photography but last week we got a call from a graphic designer, Wendy Fisher withÂ Moxie Marketing & Design, LLC.Â that wasÂ desperateÂ to have photos of some products for a catalog. We quickly set up a table top studio to photograph 30 knit caps. This one was the most playful, and we thought it would be good to illustrate that we can do more than just photograph buildings. We’ll continue to promote the business of creating award winningÂ architecturalÂ images but sometimes it’s fun to have a project that’s out of our norm.
With the holidays approaching you might consider some of the products we’ve added to our on-line store. We now have three tote bags that feature Treve’s photography. We have two medium bags, one with an image of the Marin Circle, another with an image of a market in Bali, and the third, our original bag with an image of poppies. These make great gifts. We also have a selection of notecards and prints.
On September 9 we had our first adventure in selling artwork in a street fair. This event took place on Solano Avenue, sponsored by the Solano Avenue Association. We had on display a number of Treve’s larger panoramas plus a number of small items including note cards, tote bags and prints. Many of these items are now available in our on-line store. In this picture you see Joann, Treve’s wife, handing one of our promotional post cards to a passer-by.
