I debated putting this post up on my blog for commercial work, but the main blog here won out. This probably falls more in line with commercial photography, but the lighting and set ups are similar to what I might do for bridal portraits or an engagement shoot. The session was built around some concepts and ideas by Gambrell Renard. The purpose was to get together a group of creatives in different areas and produce some stunning images.
Gambrell produces custom home decor that is stylish and beautiful. The group of creatives included custom dress designer Valerie Perez of Verseau, custom jewelry designer and maker Diana Bolch, and custom furniture designer James Breaux of breaux-arts. To add to the all star list was Cassandra Lazenby, producer of Great Day SA to model for us.
Oh yeah, the location? Partially furnished unsold condos near Olmos Park in San Antonio. The goal was to get some great photographs that showcased the products in an artistic and stunning manner. Gambrell brought the concepts and masterminded the set design, which just left some lighting tweaks and composition on my part. Even running a bit late everything came together nicely and we were able to move through the various ideas and get some great images.
