A couple of months back, Studio Marcus Hay was asked by Williams Sonoma to Art Direct and Style the Apple Program for Fall, 14, Shooting in San Francisco, we got direct the team comprising of the amazing Photographer Anson Smart and very talented Food Stylist Merilee Bordin. It was a great team and we produced 2 weeks of solid work. 

Like my recent Tomato extravaganza for Williams Sonoma, We shot everything you can think about Apples. We even shot a Apple I.D guide that can be viewed on the Williams Sonoma website. 

The color palette largely existed of red, gray and contrasted with an ever slight inclusion of pale blue which really complimented the red of the apples. 

Hope you enjoy our world of Apples.

With the Labor Day weekend, Here in the US it is unofficially the last days of Summer and it's with a touch of sadness we leave Summer, 2014 for a cooler but equally as fun Fall. Here at Studio Marcus Hay we had the pleasure of working with Photographer Anna Williams on summer tomatoes for Williams Sonoma and boy have they been great this Summer, We have had some amazing tomato dishes this season. 

We hope you all had a great Summer, 2014 and here's to a wonderful Fall.

For the recent campaign for Fall at Osh Kosh B'gosh, Studio Marcus Hay worked on a weeks shoot that included some shots in a studio with sets and props and other shots shot on location in Tarrytown, NY at a local school. 

It was a huge amount of fun to switch gears and to be working kids again, the energy is both crazy but exciting with carefully executed and considered schedules involving a revolving cast of kids present every day that worked like true professionals. 

It was a Back to School campaign which featured heavily online, In store and in printed catalogs and promos. The look was all about embracing the signature Osh Kosh blue, focusing on all colors inspired by denim with pops of yellow and pale gray.  

I had a wonderful team, Thanks to Harry, Mykl and Andrea for being such great sports, Andrea did an amazing job of crafting, hours of wrapping books, custom making pinwheels, potato sacks and dipped rulers. Thanks to Eric Pitra and his team for doing such an amazing job with the sets working to the designs of a vintage set of bleacher, gym ladders and lockers. 

We had a lot of fun with the props as you can see, It's so great to get paid to rediscover your childhood : ) Hope you enjoy the pics!

For the latest issue September issue of Good Housekeeping Magazine, Studio Marcus Hay was asked to contribute once again with the team at Good Housekeeping and wonderful Photographer Con Poulos. The Food was styled by the very talented Christine Albano

This story is made up of entirely of vegetarian meals, The palette for the story was initially  to be just yellow and gray but as the story progressed, we felt it needed a pop of blue to help lift it and reinforce a Summer vibe. Making a dash to S.M.H prop cupboard helped solve that issue, We never have too less a blue prop at Studio Marcus Hay : )

The first 4 spreads shown here are the story plus two extra shots shown on the last spread that show 2 other pages in the magazine we shot including a beautiful Caramel Apple Skillet pie on a aqua colored platter by my friends at Dinosaur Designs 

Hope you enjoy the last of the Summer vibe as Summer slowly turns to Fall.
