"Flower Power" Book Shoot
I recently had the opportunity to create all of the images for floral designer extraordinaire, Michael Gaffney, illustrating his new 300 page book, "Flower Power". Mr. Gaffney has eleven floral design schools across the U.S. and this book highlights designs created for his Los Angeles School of Floral Design. We used a variety of locations, including, classrooms, the Los Angeles Flower Market, local homes and interior design shops to showcase his designs. In addition, there are several chapters dealing with the "how to's" of several design schemes that were photographed in studio. To lend a sense of place, included in the book are several of my cityscape and landscape images of Los Angeles and California. The resulting book is beautifully designed and printed. The assignment totaled about six months of work off and on and I very much enjoyed working with the author who's motto is to "keep blooming"!
