OC Family Cover


My first time working with OC Family and it was a great experience.  After discussing the details with the creative director I had a Norman Rockwell vibe in mind along with a lighting plan.  The shoot took place at South Coast’s Plaza’s Din Tai Fung.  Shooting in a popular, busy restaurant can present a lot of challenges but the day went extremely well.  The restaurant provided us with several dishes to use as props and our model, 5 year old Archer Calvert was so polite, gave his all and lasted the entire shoot which most kids his age find hard to do.  This was his first time modeling – the magazine likes to use kids from the community who best illustrate the story and he did an amazing job.  Key light was a medium Photoflex and a small white umbrella for fill, gobos were added for control.  I have to add that the food was amazing and less than 3 weeks later I was back for a completely different shoot…and lunch.
