As a creative, I can “do” many crafty/designy things. And many of these things turn out pretty great. BUT there does exist a job to rule them all. My personal trump card.
Product catalog styling.
So thrilled to finally blog about a recent ideal job—which is just a hair shy of my dream job. Meaning, THIS my friends, is my life calling. The type of work that I THRIVE off of. And someday hope to do exclusively.
If I were to say “I’m a product catalog stylist”, most often the response is a blank look. No, I don’t take the photo. No, I don’t make the product. No, I don’t design the catalog. I simply arrange the scene (of products in an environment) that is then photographed and used in a catalog/advertisement/etc. They turn out like this:
Still a bit confused? Let me show you A VIDEO of me. In action. Exclamation points x1000.
Thanks sooo much to my friend and creative peer, Carrie, for putting together such an amazing video. Gah, I love it so much! Other images in this post are a few of the final images used in the catalog. Also very fun. I am super grateful to have been a part of the team. It was two 12 hour days of condensed chaos. I think we shot around 12 images, which is intense (each image commonly takes around 2-3 hours). But I truly LOVE it. Almost as much as I love my first born child. Which is a lot.
