"Everyone loves coffee, right? For the last quarter of Rijo 42’s content plan we went for very indulgent approach, with plenty of naughty toppings full of cream and whip with a tipple of alcohol!

Rijo42 wanted to give something back to its loyal followers and customers, so we created a 'How to' drinks series of short films for reels and general social media.

We also created a series of stills that feature seasonal hero drinks created just for Rijo42. These will also feature on recipe cards that will go out with every new coffee machine!"

Bryan Rowe Colorado - New York

"I absolutely love what I do! The immense fulfillment I get from sculpting light to bring out the inner beauty of every product or subject I photograph is what keeps me constantly excited about photography.

I'm a massive fan of detail, color and simple compositions (if you couldn't already tell) and I specialise in product, liquids, and environmental portraiture.

In a very saturated market, I believe it's this passion of wanting to go the extra mile to get the very best out of what I'm shooting that sets me apart... but hopefully that's undeniably apparent in my work.

I was born and raised in Durban, South Africa. I grew up skateboarding, surfing and later found a passion for snowboarding which brought me to the incredible state of Colorado.

I enjoy a good laugh and a tasty craft beer after a long day of work (beer on short days too). I also thoroughly enjoy working with clients that are creative, enjoy their job as much as I do, and connect with my aesthetic. I live in Boulder, Colorado with my wife and our cat. I love dogs too but our cat is still taking it under consideration."

Julie Renouf Europe - Australia

"There are many defining moments in my career as a photographer and director. The most prominent: an inspired Christmas gift, a Hanimex Box Brownie at the age of seven; a gifted art teacher in high school who taught me to experiment and explore beyond what the textbooks taught, and that ‘mistakes’ can take you to somewhere way beyond imagining; a tertiary education in photography that taught me the rules and then insisted I break them; countless shoots where I learned to trust my intuition whilst being supported by my training. These countless projects now are the backbone of my experience.

Recent years have seen my love of the still image flow into my love of the moving image, with the focus being to always weave a visual story. My capacity to shoot both photography and film streamlines production and maintains style consistency across various media.

On set I work closely with clients: I believe that collaboration, a positive attitude, and a shared enthusiasm for evocative visuals are the most effective way to create beautiful, authentic stories worth sharing with the world."
