Sunglasses are sexy…

This is a two parter…just like the shoot. The story behind this photoshoot began about five years before we did it. Originally we met Jeff Fisher when he was at Sprint and worked with him to capture the Sprint flagship store in the Power and Light District in Kansas City. Then Jeff went to Wong Doody and we worked with him to capture the T-Mobile flagship store in Time Square, New York. So when he went to Sunglass Hut we knew we were going to photograph another beautiful retail interior by him. The best part was finding out we were going to photograph two of them! The first location was in Miami, so Adam and I flew out there on a Monday. Although he swears this was an accident, Adam sent my clothes to Tampa - that’s alright, I’ll get him back one day!

We got into beautiful Miami and immediately got some sleep, as we knew this was going to be a long, overnight shoot. The store itself was pretty darn amazing, as per usual Jeff and his people had done some beautiful work. The product was fantastic and we definitely enjoyed playing dress up with some of the more edgy styles. The shoot went through the night and we found a 24 hour cuban coffee place around the corner and treated ourselves to cuban coffees every two shots. We finally pulled up on the dawn exterior and set all our lighting to really emphasis the signage and the architecture and then went back to the hotel for a couple of hours of sleep before part two in Anaheim…
