Grilling with Amy and Olivia
Grill Shoot in Austin, TX with Amy and Olivia
Here is work from a shoot I did with Olivia Caminiti, an incredible food stylist based out of Austin, TX.
We dreamed up an entire BBQ family get together and I love what we came up with. Here are some behind the scenes videos of how we pulled it off while observing strict COVID protocols. We shot two days in a row. The first day was dedicated to getting our lifestyle shots. We found a family to work with, and a close family friend of theirs who was in their bubble that they were comfortable being photographed with. Olivia had lots of prep for the large spread of food that we did, and I worked with our prop stylist, Candice Putter, to get the right look for each of our outdoor scenes. We had 3 scenes that we shot in the backyard, and each provided a fun space for the family that was coming to be our models could relax in and interact with. The overhead shot was the one that we put the most effort into, and as soon as we sat down to get the images the beautiful sunlight that we'd had that day disappeared. Luckily I'd already set up a light in case, and we were able to move ahead getting those images with the nice "sunlight" shadows that I'd planned on. p>
The second day of shooting we created an outdoor studio so that we could do our still life sets in a space that felt COVID safe for everyone. We used the covered patio and were able to get some really lovely shots. See below for some of the images we made!
