Client: Personal project

Creative direction: I’m constantly looking to explore new creative directions, play with different looks and develop new styles for my photography — it’s part of my life as a creative person. Food stylist Julia Choi and I had fun producing this series of color studies based on Pantone’s 2017 color forecast. Inspired by hues like Flame, Yarrow and Greenery (Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year), we assembled a group of images showcasing bold colors, simple props, natural light and deep shadows. We created a bit of movement in each image — drizzling honey, scattered crumbs — to give the work a dynamic quality. The project offered a great opportunity to test ideas and techniques that Julia and I can bring to our client work.
