Shot in Arizona last November, This is the 3rd option on a cover for Design Within Reach's outdoor program for 2014. This cover was actually shot on our first day of shooting. What many would not realize is on these shoots in AZ, there is naturally a lot of cactus wrangling involved, You can see in the background many pots of very heavy cacti that need to be potted but also constantly moved until the right position had been found for this image. My team at Studio Marcus Hay did any amazing job of handling these, not an easy job by any means!
Our theme for this cover was Biker Dude and we wanted it to subtly weave through this section of shots. The line used here is very masculine and clean lined, This house actually reflected the theme really well, The owner having an amazing collection of motorbikes and cars from the 1950's and 1960's.
This image was shot be the very talented Jim Bastardo.
