Walgreens

Here are two separate campaigns where I styled the wardrobe for Walgreens, photography taken by Kourtney Sellers.  Kourtney is one of my favorite people to work for because her of work ethic and positive attitude.  She sets the tone for her crew, which I really value.

The beautiful prop styling you see in the first three images was done by my fellow stylist friend, Rebekah Wiest.  I do often get asked to do both the wardrobe and prop styling, but a project like this is much more involved then it appears.  Filling in rooms to make them look “lived in” and dressing 30 people (there were more images with talent than shown here), requires two different stylists, and a couple of assistants and a hell of a lot of shopping.  More often than not, projects are too large for one stylist to handing both wardrobe and props.  It’s often best to have your stylist focusing on one task and making sure it’s absolutely perfect.

UNION 476 MEMBER!!!

I’m excited to announce that I’m now a proud member of Union 476!!!  Around 5 years ago a lot of the production houses in town that I used to work with all went union, which meant I could no longer work with them.  Since then, I have still been able to work on a number of television commercials with a temporary permit, but not nearly as many as I would have liked since I wasn’t a member.  This opens another door to a number of exciting projects.

 

 

The Lord’s Day Off

It is always so fun to collaborate with a creative mastermind like the photographer Taylor Castle.  I love that this image was inspired from the 90’s one hit wonder, “What if God was one of us,” twenty years after the fact.  Lucky for us, we know a DJ that looks a hell of a lot like Jesus  and was totally game to be like one of us and pose in front of the TV for this angelic photograph.  A big thanks to Chicago prop house, Propabilities for the sweet props, and retoucher Brian York for the making it so I didn’t have to create a set that looked like a sky, rather just a couple of fluffy clouds that Brian could manipulate in post.  Great job, team.
