Last week Alex Hayden, food and interior photographer, was up on Whidbey Island shooting food for a Seattle based book publisher Sasquatch Publishing. "Shooting food is not as glamorous as it might appear," says Hayden. "I think peoople outside the business think it's a lot of eating and enjoying the food. Sometimes it is, but most of the time we are trying to get food to cooperate so we can shoot an image that is truly appetizing and as "real" as possible." In this shot Hayden works with the stylist to compose the "perfect crab." More work from Alex can be found online here.

I am envious of Alex Hayden, one of my interior shooters. He gets to spend his days in some of the most gorgeous homes all over the country. Flipping through his book always makes me think of what my home "could be." This month, on behalf of his client Seattle Homes and Lifestyle, Alex spent a day up in Seattle's Classic Capitol Hill Neighborhood where many of the early 1900s era homes range in size from 3K square feet to 8K square feet. Shooting in such a well designed home is an interior photographer's dream, especially when the home owner has great taste, as this one did. The story this month centered around a 1906 Victorian home that had been newly renovated. The images that Alex captured are beautiful. More images from the shoot and the story about the house can be found online at the magazine's website. More of the homes where Alex spends his days can be seen online at my site http://www.sallyreps.com/. Enjoy!

I love Zee Wendell's images. She is meticulous about her styling, color combinations and overall composition. Last year Zee, along with a partner launched Weestock Images a stock agency focusing on images of kids and families. The one below cracks me up...quintessential Zee.
Fourth quarter of last year was busy for David Clugston. He spent his days shooting for several clients including Longshot Apparel, a men's clothing brand offering tall shirts for tall, fit men. Clugston, known for his iconic still life images was excited to branch out, embracing the lifestyle project with a fresh perspective. Mark Tindall, the Longshot client knew that David could bring a masculine point of view to the apparel brand. "We love these shots," says Tindall. "We wanted to visually create a "masculine" brand. The styling, lighting and point of view help to perpetuate this feeling." More images from Longshot can be found on their site at www.longshotapparel.com.
