    New Client: Rejuvenation – commercial photography update

    July 31, 2013 | Posted By: | commercial photography · product photography |

    I’m really excited to talk about Rejuvenation. If you haven’t heard of them you probably will soon enough. Rejuvenation began in 1977 in an old converted saloon in North Portland. What began as an architectural salvage shop eventually gave way to rebuilding vintage fixtures as demand grew. They were bought by Williams Sonoma in 2011 and have since become the countries largest manufacturer of authentic reproduction lighting and housewares. If you’ve never been in one of their stores you should seek one out. The quality of their products is unmatched and amazingly original. Even the most simple items are incredibly beautiful. What’s most exciting, is that they are equally obsessed with the quality of their photography as they are the product itself. As a photographer this is incredibly exciting. Take a few minutes to poke around their site and you’ll see what I mean. From the simplest of shades to the most intricate of fixtures every image is meticulously shot, scrutinized and edited. Its amazing to see a company require this level of excellence in everything they do.

    These highly technical projects that i’m always excited to be a part of. Every time I get a chance to work with them my photography improves. This is the pinnacle of studio product photography and I’m incredibly grateful to be a part of it. Everyone involved are the best in their fields and its really great to work next to them.

    Visit the site here.

    Here’s a few screen grabs for a quick look. Really I would skip these though and just take a look around the site. You won’t be dissapointed.

    New Client: Polo Ralph Lauren – commercial photography update

    This post is long overdue. I actually started shooting Polo nearly a year ago. This is an ongoing client although I don’t get a chance to shoot for them as often as I used to. We shot all the children and infant/layette laydown photography for their website. You can take a look at the work here. Just click thru all the individual categories to see the photography. (note: my photography is not the on figure photography just the laydowns – just want to make sure i mention that).

    This was my first really big name for commercial photography and will always have a great deal of gratitude for everyone that brought me on board. Its opened alot of doors and i’ll always have be incredibly thankful.

    Ok, here’s some samples of work. I can’t say for certain who shot what since we have a few teams working on this project at all times but at least you can see what we’re up to.

    New Client: Target – commercial photography update

    Ok, many of the following posts im labeling as new client updates even though many of them i’ve been shooting for quite some time now. Thats the problem with only updated your blog once a year. Ugghh…

    Anyway, very happy to say that my work has finally been showing up in Target stores. I’m primarily photographing clothing/fashion laydowns but also photograph a mix of product and lifestyle work. The work is for Target Canada’s in store and online weekly flyers. I love working with the entire target team, this is a huge collaboration of incredibly talented people and I can honestly say i really enjoy every one of them. Sometimes shooting in a high production environment can be really tedious and you don’t often end the day feeling like you created anything so its really refreshing to work with a team determined to keep it fresh and fun with a focus on quality. Ive attached a few random pages so you can take a look at what we’ve been up to.

    So if you happen to stop by a Target Canada store, grab the flyer as you walk in.

    Been a busy busy year for commercial photography!

    July 31, 2013 | Posted By: | commercial photography |

    Well im very happy to say this is the first real day off I’ve had in over a year. I’ve been able to take some time off for some travel/holidays but this is the first i’ve had to sit down and get some things updated on the site. I’ve been adding some big names to my book and am very excited to finally be able to share them. I have very little in they way of fashion/editorial work which is new but been an amazing year for some high visibility commercial photography. Been shooting a ton of product photography and clothing laydowns which has been very different but im loving it.

    I’m hoping to be able to share all future developments in a much more timely manner. I managed to get the blog linked up to the wordpress mobile app so hopefully it will be a much easier way to post on the fly ( and possibly while things are happening). Might even be able to share some behind the scenes information, lighting setups, project descriptions etc. Who knows whats to come. Ok, take a look at the following posts to see what i’ve been up to.

    Commercial Photography Set Portland // Nike Olympic Popup Launch

    Commercial Photography Set Portland // Nike Olympic Popup Launch

    I got a call a few weeks back from Kristi over at Set asking me to shoot the unveiling of a interactive pop up that will be traveling around to all the Nike stores around the country leading up to the Olympic Games. For those of you not familiar with Set you should head over to their site and take a look around, between their amazing in-house team and collaborations they’re creating some amazing visual campaigns in the retail market, take a look here.

    I had a great time shooting the launch. The pop up is visually stunning and as you can see in the pictures its a heart-racing adrenaline rush which comes as no surprise, it is after all a Nike collaboration intended to build excitement for the Summer Olympics. If you get a chance to see this interactive display in person, make sure you wear some loose clothes and are ready for a workout. The popup is a three way head to head to head competition over three events, the vertical leap, jump rope and sprint. The visually stunning displays keep you updated on your progress, and for the highly competitive types, your neighbors progress. Most impressive, the computer analyzes not sure the number of jumps in the jump rope compettion for instance it tracks the explosiveness, speed, height of jumps etc. when figuring your score, all tracked by a computer insert in the specially made shoes (which will be commercially available at the start of the Olympic games). Its a beautiful display thats highly addictive and alot of fun. Well done to all involved with this one.

    On to the pics.

    Editorial Wedding Photography – Four part summer wedding editorial preview

    May 24, 2012 | Posted By: | beauty photography · commercial photography |

    Thought i’d post a preview of a summer wedding editorial since there hasn’t been much activity lately.   Despite the lull we’re hard at work on a number of new projects and quite a few editorials and commercial projects coming out very soon.   Just didn’t want you thinking that I’ve been lounging around in the cold rainy Portland spring weather.

    So here’s a quick peak at part one of the four part editorial.   I of course will keep you posted when it comes out.

    Commercial photography session with Fashion Designer Seth Aaron

    April 25, 2012 | Posted By: | commercial photography |

    Got a call during Portland Fashion week last fall to shoot some studio portraits of Fashion Designer and Project Runway winner Seth Aaron. This was the first chance I had to work with Greg Sande, owner of Sienna Creative Works who handles the Earthtec / Seth Aaron design/marketing. If you have a minute head over and take a look at the work Greg and his team are doing. Not only are they amazing to work with but they produce an incredible product.

    Alrigh back to the task at hand, Seth, Greg and team were just a few days from debuting the Seth Aaron collection for Sustainable clothing retailer Earthtec Clothing. You can head over to Seth’s site and take a look at the collection here.

    We managed to get into the studio for a hour, which was about all he could spare with his busy schedule. We had a great session, they really wanted to get some good candid shots that really showed his personality and his newly shaved head. I love the way these turned out, everyone was very please. Going to be posting more images soon but here’s a few shots to tide you over.

    Dustin Rowley is a Commercial Photographer located in Portland Oregon specializing in Fashion, Editorial, Lifestyle and Campaign Photography. Although I primarily focus on editorial / fashion photography I shoot a wide variety of work from food and product to corporate headshoots and even an occasional wedding. If you’re interested in booking a photography session please get in touch, I’d love to take a minute and discuss your project.
