Apparel Photography: Mabel & Zora

On May 24th, 2008, commercial photographer, Philip Burnett, shot apparel photography for the local Portland boutique, Mabel & Zora. Mabel & Zora features unique women’s fashion ranging from clothing, accessories, luggage and local products and have two locations in the Portland area. All of the images were shot in studio using highly stylized lighting techniques.

Apparel Photography: SameUnderNeath

As part of our portfolio building for on model apparel photography, commercial photographer, Philip Burnett, partnered with a number of local boutiques around the Portland area, one store being SameUnderNeath. We admired their sense for fashion coupled with their mission and belief fostered around being a clothing company for everyone, no matter your background or lifestyle. Along with working to unite the human race, their company is also driven by sustainability. They develop clothing for the environmentally conscience in an effort to help sustain the earth through positive business practices.

The following set of images were shot on location in a bamboo environment. Using an advertising photography approach, we felt it would be a great idea to connect the model’s surroundings to the actual materials used in the creation of the clothing, those being bamboo and cashmere.

Marketing : Think Outside the Box

In the fast-paced, quickly advancing industry of professional photography, it takes persistence to stay in the game. At Philip Burnett Photography, our marketing efforts are perpetual. We are constantly creating fresh material and sending it out weekly, via e-mail and/or post, from our Portland, Oregon photo studio. Our most recent marketing campaign, titled Think Outside the Box, features a normal cardboard moving box, transformed into an impressive product. This campaign was conceived with the intention of highlighting our studio’s exceptional product photography capabilities and has been wonderfully successful thus far.

El Fin

After months of effort, perusing thousands of photographs, selecting appropriate favorites, categorizing, narrowing selections, figuring wall placement, printing, avoiding fingerprints and dust and scratches, laminating, sticking, cutting, mounting, measuring, nailing, leveling, constructing, finally placing, and lighting…the team has come to the end of a huge project. Our new studio art is completely completed. We have new vibrant art on our studio walls, front windows, walls of the dressing room, and in our offices. The overall theme is fine art photography with a commercial complexion. Phil, Kate, and I are ecstatic to have successfully tackled this portion of our photo studio makeover and can’t wait to show off our new walls!

New photography of the studio coming soon. For now, here’s an older composite of our lobby area. Click to view the full size image.

More from the Library

In the midst of compiling images for marketing material, I have spent a good amount of time lately perusing our image library, which dates as far back as 1998. There are several shoots and specific photographs that have been added to my mental list of favorites. One of the coolest shoots in our library, in my opinion, is one that Phil produced for Fire District 3 in Vancouver, Washington. This photo shoot took place in 2004 and captures a group of Vancouver firefighters in action.
