31 Resources for Visual Inspiration

A lot of creative types claim they don't enjoy planning, but gathering inspiration is one of the best parts of the pre-production process, I promise. When I'm producing photo shoots, putting together the creative direction is not only fun, but useful: it helps me hone in on a vision, acts as a trigger for new ideas, and provides examples of lighting and composition, which make it much easier to communicate with the client and crew.

The Creative City Podcast is Coming Soon!

I will let this relatively small yet spa-like bathroom serve as inspiration for a thorough cleaning this weekend. Wish me luck! Follow me on Tumblr and...


Muse-ings // Mermaids and Tablescapes

1// As a child of the ‘80s, anything that reminds me of Darryl Hannah in Splash or the mystery mermaid lover from Kool and the Gang’s “Cherish” video warms my heart. 2// I love the simplicity of a boldly striped shoe. 3// This is the best, most Parisian version of curb appeal I’ve seen in a long time. 4// Now that I understand how much work goes into prop styling, this eclectic tabletop arrangement is even more impressive.
