Ecotech Marine

This was a shoot from last year that I couldn't post at the time due to the product being "top secret". And then, well.... I guess I forgot! Ecotech Marine was getting ready to launch some new high end LED lighting for saltwater reef aquariums, so we installed their product over my tank and shot some lifestyle/product photos. Lots of fun, and you can expect to see more Ecotech shoots in the near future. Check out their website at www.ecotechmarine.com

MHoo Designs

Melanie Hoo is a local custom jewelry designer who needs to start photographing her work for her new website and other marketing materials. Her work is very tribal and organic but her marketing will be very clean so we shot high key on white.
These are just a few examples from the first batch... more to come!

Charmed Circle Jewelry

I got to shoot a few new pieces of jewelry from Charmed Circle last week. Shot on white background for easy placement into the website, and high key lighting for maximum sparkle and punchy color.

Steel Pipe. Lots of it.

Last week my services were called upon to shoot the Howco Group facility just outside of Houston. They process and distribute specialty steels, and I got to spend the better part of the day wandering around behind the scenes, recording everyday processes, activities, materials and equipment for their new marketing materials.

Culture Pilot Portfolio Shots

Not only is www.CulturePilot.com one of THE premiere web design studios in Houston, but they also produce some amazing print work as well. They needed to add a few portfolio shots of recent work to their website so they got on the horn and called Blue Lemon Photo.

Antiques Anyone?

This past week I got the opportunity to shoot the products in an amazing French antique shop here in Houston... Joyce Horn Antiques. As a photographer I could have easily spent all day in there, there was so much great stuff! Including their little mascot, Beemer.

New Shooting Table Completed!

I needed a table for Product Photography and commercially available tables like those from Bogen/Manfrotto (one of the cheaper ones) are pretty expensive. So I decided to try making my own and what you see here is the results. I didn't keep track of every little part that was used, but these pics should show enough for you to duplicate it on your own. All the tubing is 1.25" white pvc pipe and it's held together by aluminum pipe fittings from www.mcmaster.com, including the adjustable angle ones used to change the angle of the back sweep on the table. The top is a 48"x80" sheet of 1/8" translucent white plexiglass (from Regal Plastics here in Houston, TX) and is held to the pvc frame with some white metal clips. The clips are the only thing I can't give you a source for because they were leftover from the original Bogen/Manfrotto table I use at another studio. You may be able to get these direct from them, or find a suitable replacement. You could drill holes through the plexi and bolt it to the pvc pipe, but I like that the clips make it easier to remove.
