With years of industry expertise, Tate Lown and Steven Barston use a uniquely complex process, similar to filmmaking, to create stunning imagery. The result: astonishing, imaginative and original images that convey a comprehensive story encapsulated within a single frame.
They start by developing a central concept, character breakdown, and initial storyboard. Prop and wardrobe lists are compiled while casting begins. Casting is based more on dynamic characterization rather than mere modeling. Thus, all talent are uniquely suited to the characters they portray. Before shooting even begins, a final detail drawing indicating positioning of props, character blocking, and basic lighting is created. A separate full-detail lighting diagram is also done. When not shooting on location, they have the capability to build their own sets in their studio in downtown Los Angeles.
The attached image Marilyn, depicting the death of Marilyn Monroe and was shot for Macmillan Publishing as a cover for Max Allan Collins' upcoming novel 'Bye, Bye, Baby'.
