We're so thankful for all that 2017 offered us. Photographers Tim Llewellyn and Emily Kan joined our roster and we're proud to now offer healthcare, lifestyle and food imagery as well as product, beauty, liquids and travel in still and in motion.
We had shoots firing nearly every day, this year, working for both repeat and new clients including Tide, Keurig, Twisted Tea, Boston Scientific, Skin Better, Liberty Mutual, National Geographic, Travel Oregon and more.
We delivered files on time and on budget AND had fun doing it, thanks to the artists and our incredible crews. So many thanks to the digi techs, assistants, producers, production assistants and stylists we worked with throughout the year.
So, cheers to 2017! We can't wait to see what 2018 has in store.

In August, Keurig tapped product and liquids photographer David Butler to capture all new imagery for their packaging (releasing soon!) and more recently David captured lifestyle images of their product, in situation. I won't admit just how many cups of coffee our crew consumed during the 6 days of shooting... I will say we were full of energy when Boston's Channel 5 joined us on set to capture David in action. You can see one of the final images, below, and also a link to view the video featuring David!
Tim and the team interviewed over a dozen individuals and shot extensive b-roll in both Precision Coating’s Hudson, MA facility and their newly opened Alajuela, Costa Rica location.

Billboard Magazine just wrote "Singer-songwriter Paula Cole has the sort of voice that is nearly impossible to forget. It is as if her crystalline sound and sweeping range somehow never ceases to leave you."

You can read about the album on Billboard and on Huffington Post, both featuring Tim Llewellyn's portrait of Paula. Two of the videos, captured and edited by our team at Copper Hound Pictures, are shown below; turn your sound UP!

New work by Boston-based product photographer, David Butler, for client PING.
The creative team at PING tapped David and his incredible attention to detail for this visually dramatic campaign featuring their G400 driver.

Here's a peek behind the scenes at David on set and working on the post.

Susan Seubert's fine art photography is on display, this month, at the prestigious Venice Biennale. The Biennale has, for over a century, been one of the most important cultural institutions in the world. CNN said "These shows -- taking over everything from pavilions, palazzos and churches to public squares and former factories -- dynamically alter their surroundings, while making potent statements about today's world and what it means to be an artist." It's an incredible honor for Susan's work to be included and we're all thrilled for her.
About the exhibit...
GAA Foundation at the European Cultural Center has selected Portland photographer Susan Seubert for inclusion in “Personal Structures”, an exhibition on view at Palazzo Bembo, Venice, Italy, in concert with this year's Venice Biennale. Seubert will exhibit a recent body of work titled, "Not a Day Goes By: Asphyxiation Series." These photographic prints on metal surfaces meditate on a highly prevalent means of suicide in the United States: Self-asphyxiation using a plastic bag. All the more harrowing for their ordinariness and ready availability, Seubert placed plastic over the heads of her models (whom she crowdsourced via social media) and relied on each individual's instinctual posture to convey a face-on personal aspect to broader, tragic statistics. The results are ghostly, simply composed, eerily beautiful in their veiled view of the people underneath whose features are blurred, creased, partially obscured by the folds and light-glancing planes of the bag. Printed on reflective metal panels, Seubert invites the viewer to consider, through glimpses of their own face in the picture, our common humanness. She also draws parallels between these individual tragedies and the role of plastic in environmental ruination – the great Pacific Garbage Patch and other examples remind us that the Earth, in a very real way, is suffocating in plastic.
An active fine art and photojournalist, exacting in her preparation and printing, she is a master of new and old techniques. Her provocative imagery has earned her critical acclaim with inclusion in Portland2012, a Biennial of Contemporary Art and in the Portland Art Museum's 1999 and 2001 Biennials. She was a finalist for the Contemporary Northwest Art Awards and received Gold in the category of Travel Magazine Photo Essay by the North American Travel Journalists Association. Her work is included in public and private collections including Microsoft Corporation; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; Portland Art Museum; Oregon Health Sciences University; Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, University of Oregon; the City of Seattle, WA; and the Tacoma Art Museum, WA. She holds a BFA in Photography from the Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland, OR, 1992.
