Workbook Interview

We sat down with The Workbook team earlier this year and shared a few stories about our journey into the world of still and motion photography. Featuring a few of our favorite personal projects, The Workbook’s interview also touches on our hope to have more similar work in the future.

Prairie Organic: Cocktails from Corn Fields

Recently we worked with Philips Distilling on a handful of shoots to create images for social, web and print. The first shoot was to create images focused around a handful of recipes. We shot on location at the beautiful Cafe Lurcat which gave us options for different looks given their large and unique space.

The second shoot was on location at the Olson Family Farm, which is one of the local Minnesota Organic farms which Prairie Organic gets their corn from to make Vodka and Gin. Working freely on the farm we were able to make images with and without product to be used on social as well as print collateral.

Rasmussen School of Health Science

Some shoots require crazy call times. Our shoot with Rasmussen College was no exception. We were brought in to shoot new collateral for the School of Health Science. Given the clinic and pharmacy settings we shot in, we had to work around their schedules. With that, we shot the clinic images at night until after 11:00 pm. We brough enough lights to shoot through the lobby windows, creating a daylight look well after sunset.

The next morning, we had a call time at 5:00am at the pharmacy, with a hard out by 8am so they could open to the public. Working quickly, we shot 3 different scenes. We used the battery powered Profoto B1 lights which allowed us to shoot quickly and not waste time hiding cords or looking for power sources.

Our team worked like a well oiled machine. We got in, set up, shot, and packed out without missing a beat. The final images can be seen on the Rasmussen College School of Health Sciences website, social media, and web advertisements.
