Floating collars, a beckoning plaster hand, tendril-like coral, and dried okra. Just a few of the fun props talented stylist Stephanie Yeh brought to this collaboration. And then floral designer Kristen Usui killed it in the flower department, adding flourishes of checkered fritillaria, dried palm fronds, architectural lilies, and just-budding spirea. She also made some showstopping arrangements, culminating in a set of photos both surreal and elegant, organic and quirky.
Shooting for BUST magazine just makes me feel good. Especially when I get to shoot still life photos of empowering memorabilia from the past - femorabilia, if you will. Also, avocado toast! Will it ever go out of style? Will it ever not taste good? Will it ever stop being healthy?
I got together with food stylist Kate Schmidt on one particularly snowy day to shoot some drinks for our books.
