We’ve had people ask if the food was real and/or if the picture was a Photoshop composite. It was all real and all in camera.
Very excited about the cover we did for the September issue of The Atlantic magazine about higher education. After lots of sketching and brainstorming, the idea of a wrecking ball breaking through a college library wall was settled upon, and the building began.
Adam’s original sketch and some behind the scenes images are included below. Huge thanks to Darhil Crooks for trusting us to create destruction.
This was Adam’s original sketch we used as a styling guide.

This January Adam got to check one off his bucket list when National Geographic hired him to photograph a microscopic wind turbine developed at UT Arlington. The turbine was only 2.3 mm tall, meaning he also set a record for longest extension on the camera so far.
It was truly a wonderful experience. Read a behind the scenes story about the turbine and what it took to make the picture on the National Geographic’s blog.
The turbine was so small it had to be glued to a slide just to handle it.
The turbine next to a quarter for scale.

This past spring, O magazine came to us with 3 different parts of the body they wanted to represent with conceptual still life. The brain storming was pretty fun and we love the design that went along with the pictures.
Love, love, love the design of this issue. So happy to be a part of it.
And a huge heartfelt thank you to Randi Klett for her kindness. We are very grateful.
