It’s that time of year again and we just finished shooting the DMSA Awards Ceremony.
The Distinguished Marketing & Sales Awards where held at the Renaissance Hotel by Sales and Marketing Executives of Cleveland. Always a great networking event with the award winners and their entourage. This years Business executive of the year was Sandy Cutler of Eaton. “Sandy” and SME event chair Bob Dracon handed out awards to numerous winners including: Adam Chafe or Sherwin-Williams, Mike Malley of Crains Cleveland, John Martin of Colortone staging, and Stuart Weitzman of the Cleveland Clinic.
We start out shooting the cocktail hour and then we have our lights set up in a separate room for the big group shot. After dinner it’s time to hand out those glass
It’s been down and up in the snowy Cleveland area lately. Down in that we ran around and shot quite a few model homes for a flooring company. Beautiful locations. The agency we were shooting for has a flooring company that specializes in tile, hardwood, and carpet – that pretty well covers it all. Flooring joke.
Then it was time to shoot for another client but this time looking up. Lighting company we’ve been shooting the studio product photography decided they wanted to do some applications shots at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Cleveland.
We also shot this incredible bar without and with the under lighting kits. Pretty impressive.
It seems we’ve been working on quite a few different accounts working to clean up the environment. From high end sorters which pull cans out of the general trash to recycling and baling cardboard for publications. I’m just glad it was too cold to smell anything on these particular jobs. Good clean work at 15 degrees.
Summer time it wouldn’t be too much fun.
This last group of shots were done in Galion Ohio… yes we often travel to exotic
locations to shoot different projects. Akron, Columbus, Cinci, and out of state and on occasion out of the country.
We just finished shooting in a vault of all things some new interiors for Key Bank. Not the best place for phone reception but very quiet. Branding is a hot keyword these
days and it’s as important to banking as it ever has been. The new interior and exterior looks made a big splash to this banks new look.
We just finished up with some high end medical products designed for the spine industry. Working in the studio at Stata Productions we were able to make this
equipment sparkle. We have been shooting quite a few medical prototypes for companies
in the Cleveland area and out of state as well.
After we decided on which images the client wanted I had Dave Potokar from http://davepotokar.com/ outline all the products.
There was quite a lot of outlining but the client was very happy with the freedom this allowed him for future needs.
The weekend started out strong with Jim Baron and I shooting hundreds of portraits, some trade show exhibits, brand awareness openers and cocktail parties at the Cleveland Renaissance Hotel and the old arcade.
