Klara’s on set

I often take photos of my sets to record how they were arranged in case I need to repeat the look later, I even capture the power settings on the back of the light heads and keep them in a folder (sticky notes can get lost). This was one of the shots in the studio from the Klara’s Gourmet Cookies shoot to show their new packaging. The Coconut Macaroons are one of my favorites BTW, yum. You can check out all of their products here: https://klarasgourmet.com




Very happy to spread the Jam with my friends Ross and Danine of Jamtastic, for their new Website http://www.jamtasticjam.com.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain (or in this case—camera)

I have been photographing R. John Wright Dolls for a few years now, and I’m always amazed at the level of intricate detail that their dolls entail—each one painstakingly hand-made and painted in their factory right here in Bennington, Vermont. I sometimes shoot at their factory, but mostly here in the studio and John’s wife Susan has the un-enviable task of trying to get them to pose just right without falling over, yet looking animated. We hem and haw about each shot while the hi-res camera sensor shows every flaw in glaring detail under the lights, so we fidget and fuss over each shot. I’ve started photographing them on set and wanted to show a few shots from our most recent session which included the newest and final member, the Cowardly Lion. This past December’s issue of Dolls magazine featured the shot of Dorothy with the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and of course Toto.

Battenkill Brittle

I just finished a fun studio/location product shoot for Battenkill Brittle. Leslie Kielson has developed a fantastic product and needed some new photography to launch a Website and marketing materials that will be available soon. I really enjoy collaborating with fellow Vermonters in their small business endeavors and I think this is a fantastic product. If your local to Bennington, stop by the Walloomsac Farmer’s market or look for it in the many shops in the tri-state area.

A little about the product from the current Website:

Battenkill Brittle is the perfect snack to give you that necessary energy boost for any and all active endeavors (skiing, cycling, hiking, sports, working out, yoga, etc.), as a pick-me-up in between classes or for that afternoon office slump. It is light, just a little sweet and tastes great! And just an ounce gives you sustained energy that lasts. It is made with organic sunflower seeds, organic sesame seeds, organic pumpkin seeds, organic brown rice syrup, pure Vermont maple syrup and pecan meal.

These are a few of my favorites from the shoot:

Crumbles sprinkled on ice cream

Mix it up with a Greek yogurt/blueberry compote parfait (this was really delish btw 😉
