A Winter Wonderland Christmas in July, In Miami, Could you get anymore ironic? In the world of commercial photography you can almost imagine yourself in any scenario at anytime, it's what keeps you on your toes and in a lot of different places over the course of a year.

It's not the first time Carters have shot in Maimi, but it was Studio Marcus Hay's. Marcus and his team Mykl Cummins and Hanna Olman all met and went to work creating everything from an A Frame cabin in the snow surrounded by real Christmas Tree's to a 4 foot snowman made of foam, paper cones, snowballs made from cotton wool and so much faux snow we had it coming out of our ears.

We love working with Carters and the crew is always super great, the kids a joy to work with and even though we battled stifling heat, flooding and heavy storms, we overcome and produced some really beautiful imagery for the Holiday campaign.

Many Thanks to Creative Director Amy Deering and Photographer Tim Marsella who supported us and whose vision is always a great one to be a part of, We hope you enjoy the images.

One of my favorite things to do when I’m at home, which is not that often as I am usually on the road working on many exciting projects is to draw inspiration from my own space in which I live and document and photograph the stuff that surrounds me. Often on my travels I pick up items that end up finding a home with me in New York and as they do not always stick around forever, I like to catch them while I can.

 

Many would say after working all day on photo shoots, don’t you get tired of styling vignettes and my answer to that is never! I get great joy out of photographing these items as my home is an ever revolving evolution of different decorating styles, I get bored quick so I have to shoot it before I change it. Some items also migrate to the black hole of storage or end up on consignment in prop houses in New York.

 

I encourage you all to try it at home, Until I finally get around to a serious camera, All these images are simply shot on my I Phone, I do admit I have a few floating surfaces I use to be the backdrop for my compositions but what Stylist wouldn’t? You can use any surface really, a coffee table, your floor, A large tray. Documenting your belongings and space is really fun and so interesting when you look back at the progression of a space over the years, It really is amazing how over time a space shifts in it’s look and feel.
