Maker Pro Book Cover

This great book of essays by beginning and pro makers was in need of a cover. The brief required that I somehow convey the breadth of experience levels represented within the book, while focusing on "beginnings." I styled and shot tools and materials reminiscent of the making process and used a woodburner to inscribe a very rough-hewn "MAKER" in caps. I then composited the typography after some minor retouching.

Product Campaign Photography
Often, products from manufacturers need to be reshot to tell a more compelling story. In these cases, I shot and styled items to better resonate with the Makershed.com customer: a DIY enthusiast who loves the process as much as the end result, if not more.
