General Motors Photoshoot



Tallgrass welcomes Campbell-Ewald and General Motors to San Diego for a “Traveling With Kids” social media shoot for the On Star product line.  


Art Directors Phil Foster and John Kalmar from CE were amazing collaborators, true pros”, said photographer Jeffrey Lamont Brown. “Brown said, “it was uncanny, on some shots it was like we had a Vulcan mind meld and they really know how to nuance the images to tell the brand story.”  2 days, tons of great images and GIF’s and beach bonfire wrap party. Woot!

Christmas Week Lifestyle Shoot Day 3

On our last day of our lifestyle shoot Christmas week, we headed to the cliffs of Torrey Pines, where we had 2 cameras right at the cliff’s edge. Our talent were champions, running up narrow goat trails and posing in stretching positions above the legendary Black's Beach. 

We ended the week of shooting in the chic offices of Digitaria. We capture amazing views of both our talent and "aerials" down into PETCO park baseball stadium at sunset. To get so many great images in such a variety of places took complete commitment from everyone involved, and, wrapping that day, everyone felt extremely proud to be a part of this dedicated team.

Christmas Week Lifestyle Shoot Day 2

Day 2: Downtown San Diego. We were immersed in San Diego’s downtown Gaslamp quarter. The weather was sunny and beautiful for shooting, but so warm that it posed a threat to the "Ice Cream" scene. APC Britney, literally ran from the ice cream shop to our set to keep the tub of cones from melting! 

By the time the sun was setting that same day, we decided to capture some extra shots at our final location: Goorin Brothers, a stylish downtown hat shop loaded with Fedoras, Boaters and many other cool hats. To get enough light in the store’s second floor terrace, G+E  stood in the street with shiny boards to capture the remaining sunlight. Inside, JB shot above from a bird’s eye view, while Gavin rolled low angle "B" camera.   By the time the sun had gone down, we knew our clients were going to be spoiled.

Christmas Week Lifestyle Shoot Day 1

With 3 days notice, we pulled together a rocking 3 day lifestyle shoot the week of Christmas. From the Torrey Pines cliffs to downtown, our crew of 13 shot 14 talent in 8 locations in 3 days. 

The first day we shot at beautiful home in Bay Ho, a cool neighborhood overlooking Mission Bay, where our team had fun assembling our largest prop to date, a 14 ft trampoline. It was a great team building exercise to build it "on the day" with agency/client in the house. Our "boss" set dec team took the house from Christmas to "Season Agnostic" and back to it's festive state. JB and the A + B camera teams rocked it, keeping 4 kids (and "Parents") happy throughout the day. One 5 year old had so much fun her mom sent this email. "Alana had such a great day today!  In the car she told me that she wishes she could wake up "at night" and do this every single day.
