I just did a photo shoot for LaNeva Artisan tiles. Their new line of products makes a very creative use of recycled skateboards. Check them out:

They also offer a nice selection of hand painted tiles:


I stopped for a quick visit at the Little Bird On Grand in Minneapolis yesterday. Well, I thought it was going to be a quick visit, but it never turns out that way. I love to chat with Jodi and, since I always have a camera with me, I snapped a few pictures of some new treasures…

Please note that these images were shot for fun hand held in a low light situation and do not reflect the quality I would normally provide a client on a commercial shoot ~ Thank you!

I dont always get this excited about a product shoot on location. But this one was a lot of fun. Not only my client was also from France and we enjoyed speaking our native language and drinking good coffee during the photo shoot, the products were also a delight to photograph! Shooting products on location is very challenging. You don’t have the control of the lighting like you do in studio. It also requires to work a bit faster and with more distractions. I enjoyed every minute of it and I could have bought every single product I photographed that day!

Here is a small selection of hand made home decor and other products from South East Asia that will soon be available online at Reflections Of Asia.

There is a special place on Grand Avenue in Minneapolis. Nestled in the Kingfield neighborhood, the Little Bird on Grand is a treasure chest of eclectic gatherings, old and new. Stop by for a visit! Jody, the owner, will tell you wonderful stories about her precious finds and you will be delighted by the experience.

Remember: 4754 Grand Avenue in Minneapolis, say that Valérie sent you!

Okay, I love my job. Chocolates can be challenging to shoot but they sit still and, if I drop one by accident, I can eat it!

I just finished a photo shoot for laNEVA Artisan Tiles. I picked up the beautiful tiles from local glass artist Peter Zelle earlier this week and here are some of my favorite images:
