Here at Studio Marcus Hay, after the long winter we always delve into spring and embrace our love of flowers, This Spring is no exception. We are currently on the West Coast and spring has probably sprung into action earlier here this year. The birds are a chirping and the flowers are a blooming.

Flowers and plants always play a big part in the success of a shoot, There are not many times that we don’t find ourselves in need of them. Early morning visits to Flower Markets and Nurseries are commonplace and we often bump into fellow Stylists fighting for the best bunch of peonies. It has always been interesting to me how you can have a guttural response to nature and how when creating images, the inclusion of an organic piece elevates the shot without a doubt. I don’t know many people who have a hate of the organic.

Here is a medley of shots over the years that Studio Marcus Hay has produced and styled, As you can see we are not shy of flowers, naturally not all these flowers are Spring flowers, the beauty of flowers is that you can get different types year round, but with the celebration of spring in mind, Here is a mixed bag of flower inspired shoots and influences.

I just got back from England where sweet floral’s are abound, From The V&A Museum to Liberty Store to Columbia Flower Market, I am not sure if I was on Spring alert but it was so great to see the influence of flowers be some prominent.
