I have collaborated with Yamaha USA and Yamaha Japan on several image library projects. The shoots are large productions that involve many moving parts. The shoots are often motion and still. My team and I coordinate the location scouting, casting of real musicians, the styling, and all other aspects of the production.
The goal of the shoots is to create spontaneous moments while highlighting the, more often than not, highly reflective pianos. The pianos range from upright to concert hall grand pianos. For Yamaha, I have shot in schools and homes in Chicago, IL and Los Angeles, CA.
