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.

For the Holiday's, 2016, Marcus was asked to join the team in Chicago to shoot the very extensive Holiday Gift Guide that comes out each year for CB2. Spanning over a couple of weeks, the team shot over 55 images for the book in different themes such as The Bar, The Garden, For Her, For Him, The Host etc 

It was great to work with such interesting graphic and contemporary gift ideas, many of which we are adding to our list for these holidays. Marcus especially loved styling the spread for The Garden finding amazing succulents and plants at Sprout Home, one of his favorite Chicago stores. 

He also used hand crafted silver, gold and copper leafed gift tags throughout especially made and designed for the shoot by his team. Marcus got to work with the amazing as ever Photographer Jonny Valiant

For the Holidays and CB2, Marcus travelled to Chicago a few months ago to work with the team at The Crate and Barrel Studios. This project was the gift guide that is interwoven into the regular catalog which has just come out for the Holidays, 2016. 

We were working with much smaller sets then normal. Marcus has just returned again from Chicago where he was part of the team once again for Spring, 16 where the sets where at maximum capacity and felt more familiar. Marcus has worked on The Gift Guide a few years back and he knows it takes a different mindset as there are a lot more images on each page and it is important that each spread has a consistent flow in terms of it's individual theme. 

These are just a few of the spreads of many that were featured, Look out for the next set next month in the larger book. Jonny Valiant shot these wonderful images and Marcus would like to thank his amazing Assistants Veronica and Carrie for helping him make it all happen.
