#TBT to this beautiful conceptual project from food stylist Nicole Twohy! Nicole collaborated with photographer Lucy Schaeffer to create these out of the box images, combining both food and beauty. Take a look below!
Dorian Ward Trading Company is an antique concept store owned by Vanessa Brennan and focused on luxury goods from the 1920’s and 1930’s. Think about all the decanters, flasks, and linens that would carefully get placed in leather trunks when Downton Abby goes to Africa.

It takes extra foresight to create an intelligent image designed to illustrate a concept. Besides the idea, it also needs to be technically and aesthetically sound. In this series of openers for Smart […]
In this conceptual shoot for AARP Magazine, James Worrell takes on the clock. First of all, I’m not sure who is having sexy-time at 8pm. Especially when ‘William and Kate: Inside the Royal Marriage’ is on. Second of all, just thinking about doing yoga at 6am is stressful. Especially after all the red wine and royal […]
