For Runners World Magazine, Marcus Hay worked with the team for a recent issue on their food pages with Photographer Mitch Mandel and Food Stylist Barrett Washburne.

Coming up with 3 different flavors around the world, 1. Moroccan 2. Costa Rican 3. Nepalese, Marcus and his Assistant Aja Boon found a variety of props that matched the look and feel of these regions. Here at SMH, Inc we thought it would be fun to highlight elements of these props with the type that inspired us. 

For the Moroccan tiles, Marcus used some tiles from his own collection fusing it with great ceramics from Elephant Ceramics  Gold flatware played a big part. For Costa Rica, A shutter seemed like a great way to create a resort bar like feel using contemporary silhouettes in glassware and some fun paper straws with tropical foliage. For Nepalese we used gold bowls from Tom Dixon  and hand made pottery with Mud Cloth fabric in earthy tones. 

It was fun prop wise to visit these 3 places in one shoot, we hope you enjoy the results.
