Editorial Photography – Pittsburgh Entrepreneur Lani Lazzari

We were commissioned by Auve Daily, a lifestyle magazine out of San Fransisco to photograph
local entrepreneur Lani Lazzari. Lani started her skincare product, Simple Sugars,
at 11 years old in her family’s kitchen. Her goal was to develop an all-natural product that would be safe for sensitive skin. At age 19, Lani appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank and landed an investment deal with Mark Cuban.  Simple Sugars is now a huge success!

We photographed Lani at her new office and distribution center. This place is really cool.
Lots of pink, graffiti and inspirational quotes all over the walls. We had 3 different set ups to shoot
of Lani and didn’t want to take up too much of her time so we worked fast. In between setups Lani was still able to get work done and we were able to get some great shots.

Commercial Photography – Pennsylvania Solar Farm

On a gorgeous fall morning we were on location photographing for a local PA solar company.
I have never photographed solar panels before.  You don’t realize how huge these things are until you’re right up close to one.
For this portrait we left the battery packs in the car and used the sun as a back light.  We then front filled Dave with a silver reflector.  We shot low and wide skimming one of the panels for a little bit of drama.

Environmental Portraits for Advertising

We were fortunate to be sent on assignment for one of our oldest clients.  We love that we have been able to keep a relationship with this company for over a decade.  We happened to be traveling through Pennsylvania and Maryland on our way to Virginia for another assignment.  Since we were passing through their footprint, we were able to stop at two of their shop locations to capture some environmental portraits of a few of their long term employees.  These guys were all great to work with and we had a lot of laughs while capturing the images.  Great employees for sure!  The company is lucky to have them.

Commercial Advertising Photography

Ahhh.. Spring. A much welcomed sunny and warm day in Pittsburgh found us photographing undergraduates around campus. On this assignment, we were asked to photograph four separate students, each at two different locations. The art director and I scouted a few locations in the morning while the crew unloaded the gear. The cool part about this job was after nailing down a few key locations to shoot, we still found different location options as we went through the day. Knowing we wanted to provide our client with a lot of options, it was important to have a crew that could keep up. A great crew plus talented art direction equals awesome shots! A few of our favorites are below.
