Once again Marcus was asked to Art Direct many of the spreads featured in current Fall Williams Sonoma Cooks catalogs in San Francisco. Taking a very graphic organized approach to many of the spreads, something close to Marcus heart, Marcus tackled spreads on wine, Thanksgiving, kitchen tools to name a few. The Fall Catlogs are always a favorite, rich in tones, textures and with a moodier approach to lighting.

It’s always a pleasure to work with the Williams Sonoma teams, Huge thanks to all these super talented folks: Food Stylist’s Merilee Bourdin, George Dolese, Props Stylist’s Beverly Hyde, Lynsey Fryers and Suzie Myers, Photographers Anson Smart and Sang An.

Happy Thanksgiving to All!

For Fall this year for Williams Sonoma, Marcus both Art Directed for some spreads and styled for others, crossing over from both Williams Sonoma Cooks to Williams Sonoma Home. Having the opportunity with working with regular and very talented Photographers Anders Schonnemann, Anna Williams, Sharyn Cairns and Anson Smart and with amazing Prop Stylist’s Amy Wilson and Holly Smith and ever wonderful Food Stylist's Nathan Carrabba, George Dolese and Alison Attenborough. Always such a pleasure to work with so many talented folks, many of whom we at SMH, Inc have had great working relationships with for many years. 

 

Fall is the time of year to embrace familiar themes such as Thanksgiving and the impending Holidays and thus these spreads reflect the season that is approaching, We hope you all have an amazing Fall and enjoy this special time of year.

For Williams Sonoma, Marcus was excited to join the team to work with Michael Mina, Michael Mina is an award-winning chef, restaurateur and cookbook author whose name has been synonymous with bold food and memorable dining for more than two decades. He is the creator of Michael Mina, his signature restaurant in San Francisco, CA. In 2002, along with partner Andre Agassi, he founded Mina Group, which today includes nearly 30 dining concepts, including Bardot Brasserie in Las Vegas, Stonehill Tavern in Southern California and the forthcoming Margeaux Brasserie in Chicago. His new collection of seasonings and relishes are inspired by the creations he serves at Bourbon Pub in Santa Clara, CA, a gathering place where he puts his spin on classic pub fare.

Also that week we photographed some amazing cocktail and outdoor kitchen spreads, really getting into the spirit of Summer.

Images here are photographed by the wonderful Anson Smart. Food Styling and mean burger wrangling by George Dolese.

For the Williams Sonoma Fall Catalog, 2016, Marcus for SMH, Inc was once again in San Francisco to work on iconic spreads for the season. Thanksgiving is around the corner and this year found us in many different locations around the Bay area to shoot the spreads assigned. We got to shoot with a number of different and wonderful Photographers: Sharyn Cairns, Anders Schonnemann and Anson Smart to name a few. It was a great experience to be with new teams and be a part of creating a visual language for the season for Willams Sonoma.

 

This Fall we embraced feathers, leather string, crafted copper dipped tags, clever and unexpected table setting ideas and seasonal fauna. Taking a more relaxed casual take mixed with more traditional items of product, We were conscious to give the season a more personal approach, less traditional and uptight. We hope you enjoy the results.

For the August Catalog for Williams Sonoma, Marcus was asked to style these very chic monochromatic spread's. Working with a new Provence black serve ware, he created a butler's pantry style shot using all pieces from the new range which are all hand painted. 

Other shots included new kitchen tool accessories and steak knife sets shot with their matching boxes. Staples for the brand.

Working with the very talent Photographer Anson Smart we had a great week including shots to be featured in September's Catalog and the following months. Look out for those!

For Williams Sonoma Summer, It’s always nice to shoot it where it’s warmer all year anyhow to get into the spirit of sunshine and happy days, Escaping the dead of winter in NY for the more palatable west coast allowed SMH, Inc to work on some great images for the new catalog featuring a very appetizing cocktail on the cover was a pleasure.

 

This time we were focused on Styling, Continuing with their melamine collection, we have some more versions of that series profiled here, taking a very graphic approach on a lovely zinc surface. Wedding registries and baking pages galore and a fun lemonade party where we worked with two delightful girls, creating a garden, lemonade stand and wardrobe. Was a lot of fun for American Girl. You can’t see it, but there is some very lovely 10 x 10 feet sod beneath their feet the best quality California has to offer!

 

These images ended up in the main catalog but also in a mini Gift catalog also. 

Was great to work once again with the very talented Photographer's, Anson Smart and Romulo Yanes

For the last couple of catalogs this season, Studio Marcus Hay, Inc has been busy once again over on the West Coast for Williams Sonoma Cooks in both Styling and Art Directing capacities.

In our classic graphic style for the brand, we have created a series of images including melamine, bbq tools, bbq grill pans, wine glasses and bathroom/kitchen products.

It's so much fun to work with the bright colors of the season pairing it with classic zinc and marble. 

SMH, Inc is about to head back over to San Francisco later this month to work on the latest catalog in production, Look at for that work soon!

For the Spring catalog for Williams Sonoma Cooks, Studio Marcus Hay worked on both Styling and for some spreads the Art Direction also producing spreads for a variety of different products including their new range of Williams Sonoma soaps and lotions. Others were glassware, melamine and Duraclear outdoor table ware and also BBQ tools. You can really feel the warmer seasons upon us especially when working on spread s like these.  

We shot once again with the both talented Photographers Anson Smart and Romulo Yanes in San Francisco
