Mellow Mushroom Photography and Cinemagraphs

Mellow Mushroom Photography and Cinemagraphs

We recently completed a multi-day shoot with Mellow Mushroom – this was our first project with the Atlanta based team that flew out to Phoenix to shoot: 1 day on location shooting lifestyle photography followed by 2 days in studio shooting food stills and cinemagraphs.  It’s always great to be working with new clients that reach out to us from across the country. Stay tuned for more tearsheets, we’re just starting to see the project files going live and in-use. Looking forward to the next round of shooting – thank you to the Mellow Mushroom team, cheers!

Patrick Darby Photography – A Unique and Powerful Brand Solution

Patrick Darby Photography – A Unique and Powerful Brand Solution

Having fostered and developed partnerships with dozens of national restaurant brands throughout the years, we wanted to assemble a retrospective of imagery samples from some of these projects and take the opportunity to publish the words from one of our closest partners (RUI) describing their experiences with Patrick Darby Photography…

Patrick and his team are dedicated to nothing less than the highest quality collateral deliverable… 

In a nutshell, we’re not photographers… we’re creative brand partners and solution providers for the hospitality industry. Read more about what RUI has to say about PDP and reach out with any inquiries or to discuss a future creative partnership.

Ten Days, Nine Restaurants

Ten Days, Nine Restaurants

It’s been a very active summer for the studio with lots of travel and exciting new opportunities. That said, perhaps the most noteworthy of these opportunities was our time with Restaurants Unlimited (RUI) in Seattle and Portland. In Seattle, we shot architecture, lifestyle, and food for Palomino, Palisade, Cutters, Stanford’s, Scott’s and Stanley’s and in Portland, we produced the same for Henry’s, Portland City Grill and RUI’s newest restaurant, Prime Rib and Chocolate Cake. It goes without saying, it was a substantial undertaking to create such a large amount of content across a wide range of subject matter and over a compressed period of time. I’m very proud of my team and what we were able to accomplish and appreciative of RUI for allowing us to partner with them on this great project.
