From The Archive: Florida Lifestyle

It’s January, it’s winter, it’s cold.

Chris and the rest of our crew certainly get around this country and beyond, but this week we’re back at home base in Philadelphia and it’s chilly. The weather put me in a mindset to remember what we were up to right around now in 2011, when we headed down to Florida for our first lifestyle portfolio shoot. We packed up our gear, as well as some sunglasses and took off to the sunshine state to make some beautiful photos. We couldn’t have asked for a better week, but the pictures speak for themselves.

Fall Drives

The leaves are changing, there’s a chill in the air, the selection of pumpkin-flavored beers is downright overwhelming. All these signs point to one thing – it’s undeniably fall on the east coast. What a better way to celebrate the change of seasons than to fire up the engine of a classic Corvette, put the top down and take off on some winding roads? And of course, we just had to follow along and shoot some photos.

You might notice in the shot above that the leaves are a fiery orange hue, and this is all natural – no Photoshop work here. How did we do it? The answer is simple – much like shooting for the summer issues of magazines, we shot this 2012 New Jersey Monthly cover all the way back in the fall of 2011.

Looking Back: Travaasa Hana Outtakes

This time in 2011 we were just getting back from our adventure in Hawaii shooting for Travaasa Hana. We’ve blogged about it, shared behind the scenes stills and video, and as I was looking through our archive recently, I realized there were a few outstanding photos that might otherwise never see the light of day. They’re ridiculous, bizarre, and definitely not flattering – keep reading to see some of our best Hawaiian outtakes.

Looking Back: Travaasa Hana

This time last year we were packing our bags (and swimsuits) to fly out to Hawaii for an almost three week long project working with Travaasa Hana, a spa resort on the island of Maui in Hawaii. You might remember that we live-blogged the entire shoot, all seventeen days of the project. Not only was that the kick-off to our new blog, but it was also one of the most fun and interesting shoots we’ve had in a while.

That being said, when I came across some behind the scenes video footage a few weeks ago, I thought it would only be appropriate to cut together a quick clip from the shoot. Many thanks to our superstar assistant Jeff Elkins for filming these clips. Enjoy!
