Carlin Creative Chicago

Carlin Creative is genuinely fascinated by creating a narrative with light, composition, and texture.

Carlin Creative's approach to photography is nailing the first incredible, but in some cases "safe" image, like in any photoshoot you may have been in. Then, she quickly gathers a collection of angles, tweaking light and objects as we move around the set. In some cases these images become the hero and that first image becomes second best. Her team allows time and creativity to improve upon incredible. She has found these extra vignettes of product or mood to be extremely valuable to her clients, especially with the need to promote on social media and for those who want to build a library of images. She believes that investigating other angles can lead to more intriguing and unpredictable hero images, while at the same time create a story of supporting images. This will add value to each photoshoot by being able to portray your brand to consumers in various ways.

Dominic Episcopo Philadelphia - NYC - Boston

"Like in many Italian-American households, food was the cultural centerpiece of the home I grew up in. On any given Sunday, we would have a dozen or more people over for dinner. Food was a way to celebrate, to mourn, to heal, or to simply enjoy each other’s company. Even when there wasn’t a special occasion, it was time well spent, enriched by family, friends, and dishes to remember.

Now, as homage to my mother's and grandmother's recipes, and to the people who I’ve shared them with over the years, I have set forth to capture their essence in this heartfelt project, 'Nana’s Recipes'.

This was always meant to be more than a photography project or recipe book, although I didn’t realize that until far into it. It is an autobiographical story, steeped in memories and stories that my mother and Nana passed along to me, and that I am now proudly sharing with the broader world beyond our family table."

Tobias Reymond Foto | Film Amsterdam

"Autumn has arrived! And it's a great time to present Albert Heijn soups and a new Unilever product with a veggie smoked sausage.

The team also completed a lovely LaPlace tea and chocolate range for Jumbo supermarket, while HOOP breweries asked the studio to shoot their new Queen Bee beer. Isn’t she a beauty? She deserved some great shots.

The new high-speed flash generators and sound laser triggers did the job in capturing dusty and splashy spuds for outdoor banner prints. Some clean-up for the aquarium was required, so a bit of Glassex jumping into the frame. Splashy, isn’t it?

New Videos for Albert Heijn with the motion-control rig completed the Autumn-feeling. All studio assets were involved, including props, styling and in-house backdrop artist.
