Making some last minute tweaks to lighting. The main camera- complete with an Interrotron telemprompter for direct eye-contact while looking into the camera. Sound is key!! The Directors (Graham Copeland on the left, Kevin from TFS on the right) interviewing w/the Interrotron. Multiple cameras, boom mics and lights abound!!

A quick behind the scenes peak at my recent producer project for The Flores Shop. Production crew is Glossy Creative and they did a fabulous job!

I’m taking my Studio website mobile!! After some tinkering, Visual-Storyteller.Com is now responsive!

It’s a rare occurrence when the perfect intersection of creativity, vision, chemistry, weather, teamwork and serendipity converge to produce a week of intense, high pressure production that feels as natural as any day at in front of the computer editing photos or answering emails. Weeks like this remind me of why I do this work and show me the depth and scope of a skill set that’s taken my entire adult life to cultivate. This week, I worked with an amazing ad agency to produce a series of television commercials for one of their clients. My role was to produce the spots and to also shoot production stills for a print campaign during our 3 days of filming on location. My duties covered the gamut of production; from finding locations and scouting trips, to creating production schedules and talent packets to assembling storyboards and helping line up the documentary film crew, to ordering the dinners, organizing the craft services and making the coffee before the crew left for sunrise shots. Seeing my background of photojournalism and multimedia production merge into this perfect role- as a producer for another company- was fascinating and rewarding endeavor. And the footage the team gathered is simply amazing! Now- to take this project into post and see what emerges will be insanely refreshing and exciting. More to come shortly!!

While on a portrait shoot for Whole Foods last week, I had the lovely opportunity to photograph the most stunning farm and intriguing farm animals. There’s a farmer inside of me dying to get out! Click this link to see more of this Virginia farm!

The latest commercial multimedia production from Street Studios!! We shot this film in Southern Pines, N.C. for our client’s website to help better explain their product to new customers! Our insanely talented programmers also translated TerraSoft’s marketing materials into a website to help promote this horse bedding as it goes to market in the spring.

Enjoy!! And shoot us an email when you’re ready to bring your message to the world!

Whole Foods Market Environmental Portrait Shoots

Whole Foods Market contacted me in the Spring of 2011 to visit a handful of local vendors in the Charleston area to produce a series of environmental portraits for in-store displays throughout the local Whole Foods.

Connecting consumers with the folks who produce their food is an ongoing mission of the company and I’ve worked with them on multiple photography and multimedia projects over the past several years to help further this connection of producer and consumer.

I have to say, these shoots are some of my favorite commercial assignments! Not only do I get to spend the day interacting with fellow foodies and people who are passionate about their work- I usually get to sample the amazing food they produce.

My happy place!

The Project: Westbrook Farms Identity Narrative

Still Images/Audio: Crystal Street

Production: Street Studios

Westbrook Farms approached Street Studios with a perplexing challenge- to help bring this hay brokerage company into the online arena using a visual narrative to connect the audience with the vivacious personality of Westbrook’s owner and educate the customer about the intricacies of buying and selling hay.

We chose to spend several days documenting the owner, using still images and ambient audio, as he traveled throughout Southern Pines, N.C. touching base with clients and checking on the distribution of hay from a recent harvest. After the shoot, we conducted an indepth interview with the owner and wove the story of the company, its logistics and the nuances of hay into a narrative for use on Westbrook’s website. We are currently working with Westbrook to build a digital platform for funneling customers to learn more about the company and how to order hay through the farm.
