Bai Drinks


Finally, I got to work with Bai Drinks – I wanted to for ages. This shot was for an assignment for Princeton Magazine. Typically CEO’s really don’t have too much time to dedicate to photo shoots – but, these two were fantastic to work with and fit me in between meetings. Both Ben and Danna were awesome, creative and enthusiastic to work with, and Carolynn who organized, arranged, styled – and everything else. Bai Drinks is a company to envy. Their culture, and offices are beautiful – so well designed and the people who work there are happy!

Ben and Danna’s office is more like a cool, well designed living room – something you might find in a high end hotel. The light from the floor to ceiling wall of windows cast such a beautiful light – all I needed was a remote flash on a stand, high up and bouncing back. And boom – I could not believe the colors, the expressions, the poses – oh my. If anyone ever made my job as a photographer easy it was these two.

In this shot, there were some wall graphics that needed to be removed for the sake of the article, my good friend, Jorge Naranjo, the most talented graphic designer around took care of that – so, he is credited with photo re-touching, however, his layout designs are noticeably superb.

You have to check out their web site and try their drinks if you haven’t already – their aesthetic is simply amazing and all the drinks are good, really good.
