After quite a few years of photographing the notorious duo, Penn & Teller, we always take the assignment with the same excitement and the sentiment that it is going to be unusual and unexpected. With the right chemistry, artists do wonders and they both delivered a performance to remember. Continue reading
To be clear, WE ALL WANT the new Apple Watch, or do we? So who mocked it better? In terms of “mocking” as in “ha, ha,” hands down Colbert’s wins. But back in O’13 we did create our own mock up of the device. While we can’t compete with Colbert’s comedic timing, his writers messaging, and large captive audience, maybe his prop master could have consulted us to make a more elegant looking contraption to poke fun of the Apple Watch.

We were commissioned to photograph the Stratosphere, the tallest structure in Las Vegas, along with all of it’s associated properties.

Vegas is not known for being quaint. So when you gotta get your message out there, the bigger, the better. Take for example the iconic Penn & Teller building wrap, which has graced one side of the Rio for well over a decade.

The duo tower over of the Vegas skyline like giant sentinels with watchful eyes and a smirk.
We can’t say where we got it from, but we got to try out a prototype of the new iPad watch. It’s as slim and beautiful as the New iPad with Retina Display, but now attaches to your wrist. What’s great about it is it has all the functionality of an iPad. No dumbed down OS. No syncing with any another device to work. And the battery life is just a good as the current iPad models. Just slip it on and go!
Our Hakkasan images crosses over from editorial to advertising. The photos of the new Las Vegas Mega Nightclub and Restaurant were originally shot for editorial, but our client decided to use them for advertising, as well. We’d like to give credit where credit is due. As happy we are with the final results it did not hurt that the Paris-based design firm “Gilles & Boissier” created a unique interior architecture.
Producing images that read clearly in any media is one thing, however, the extreme darkness and limited color palette made it a bit more challenging. See more images after the break.
