Marcus was once again invited to Art Direct the Summer Program for Garnet Hill, working for the first time on this brand with favorite Photographer Jonny Valiant

Marcus and the team embraced the Summer Season with a new linen launched by Garnet Hill who do great linen products in both home and fashion.

Working with light and bright Summery sets, Jonny and Marcus worked hard at creating wonderful summery light with highlights and sun filled rooms, working with sets designed by Marcus with the very clever set builder Matt Carstens.   

Both Super star Prop Stylist Carin Scheve and Soft Stylist Eduardo Vinueza worked their amzing magic in creating a mood inspired by the fashion teams trip to Morocco.

Over the last few months, All of Marcus's work for Williams Sonoma has started to appear in the pre and now Summer catalogs in both Prop Styling and Art Direction. Largely Grilling spreads, Marcus got to work with fave Photographers Anna Williams and Romulo Yanes.  

While Marcus was Art Directing he got to work with the ever lovely Prop Stylist Suzie Meyers and I'm sure you'll all agree, amazing Food Styling by George Delose

Shooting in San Francisco, It's always fun to shoot Summer spreads knowing that the season will be on it's way, As we all kick back on Memorial Day, We know Summer is finally here, We hope you all had a great long weekend!

Last year in Austin, Texas, Marcus had the pleasure of working with the amazing Crate & Barrel team in Austin Texas, where we spent a couple of weeks shooting the Summer Outdoor catalog in some amazing Austin locations.

It was the first time Marcus has worked on the Art Direction of the Crate and Barrel catalog but has had a long history with the company in other roles and brands so it was very exciting to work with the wonderful Photographer Alec Hemer once again and talented Prop Stylist Joe Maer, of who Marcus has known for many years in New York. 

Marcus is looking forward to more Crate and Barrel projects, stay tuned!

It's the height of Summer and SMH, Inc like everybody else in the northern hemisphere is sweltering in the heat but you can take light relief flipping through your latest CB2 Catalog and a nice cold Chardonnay as Marcus brings it with his latest styling for the Chicago based brand.

Excited to make a new journey, SMH, Inc is traveling once again to the windy city next week for nearly a month to work on Holiday offerings, working once again with the very talented Photographer Jonny Valiant. This series of images are also shot by Jonny.

It's always such fun to work with such modern and sleek designs, CB2 have really been riding a creative wave with lot's of great new finds for the home.

For Garnet Hill, Marcus was asked once again to Art Direct the catalog for High Summer. Working in New Hampshire, we created many wonderful summer sets inspired by the fashion shoot shot in Mexico on the beach.

The sets were intentionally neutral this time to help allow Garnet Hill's prints to really pop and allow for a light and breezy feel, we even created outdoor porch areas to help bring the outside in.

We loved working with super talented Photographer Seth Smoot again and wonderful Prop Stylist's Heather Greene and Carin Scheve     

We are looking forward to next Garnet Hill project later this year, look out for that one!

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
