For New Yorkers like us, few services are more essential than food delivery. That's why we were so psyched when Marcus Nilsson landed a national advertising campaign for DoorDash.
Authenticity was key to bringing this project to life. From the food to the talent - Marcus wanted everything to be real and diverse. We love the rich colors and attantion to detail with food and prop styling. See for yourself below! And don't miss these other amazing food projects Marcus has shot.
Turkey and stuffing and pumpkin pie, oh my! November has arrived, and Thanksgiving is so close we can almost taste it. Our photographers really know how to make our stomachs growl -- photos of delectable dishes have been filling our inboxes, so we thought we'd share a few!
Marcus Nilsson's mouth-watering photography was featured on this month's cover of Food & Wine. Take a peek inside the issue, and you'll discover which A-list celebrity he also had the pleasure of shooting. Spoiler alert -- it's P!nk. Marcus traveled to the pop artist's Santa Barbara winery to capture how she celebrates Turkey Day. Check out some magazine excerpts and outtakes from the shoot below!

Imagine a place where you can visit a spa, take a yoga class, stroll through a garden, and take a dip in a pool all in one day. Sounds like a 5-star all-inclusive resort, right? Well, for London residents 65 years and older, it's home. Mikkel Vang traveled to this luxury community, better known as Riverstone, to capture how the neighborhood is providing elevated retirement living to its residents.
Mikkel's photos exlore the diverse range of opportunities and activities Riverstone residents are afforded and illuminate the quality of life they enjoy. Take a peek below! And check out more of Mikkel's lifestyle imagery here.
We're absolutely delighted to announce that Sue Parkhill was named a Creative Awards Winner in the Print Editorial/Personal category at LeBook Connections Midwest. Sue was recognized for her Storm Portraits, a personal project focused on subjects with the same names as 2019 UK storms.
The power of names has been the focus of Sue's personal photography for years. For this series, she gave herself some rules. The first was that she wouldn't use social media to find subjects. She wanted her search to be organic and the subjects traceable back to her. She relied on word-of-mouth to find subjects that matched the 21 names selected for 2019 storms, so every portrait features a friend of a friend of friend. Her second rule was to refrain from researching subjects beforehand - she didn't even tell them what to wear. In some cases, the people who turned up for their session weren't anything like she'd imagined.
Looking back at her project, Sue expressed, "I can say that it was a joyful and compelling experience – I have found that people are always surprising."
Storms are named when there is a risk of medium to high impacts from wind, rain, or snow. Until the 1950's, they were tracked by year and order. It was found that names make communication quicker and reduces confusion when more than one storm occurs at the same time. The names used alternate from male to female, ommitting the letters Q, U, X, Y, and Z. Sue found that, without exception, people were delighted that their names were being used for a storm.
Take a peek below at Freya, Saoirse, Tristan, Erik, Lily, and Peggy. View all 21 of Sue's storm portraits here.
The days are growing shorter. There's a chill in the air. Pumpkin-flavored everything has hit the store shelves. These changes can only mean one thing - fall is upon us! As we unpack our flannels and pull out the heavy down comforters, we thought we'd take a walk down memory lane by sharing some of our favorite autumn-inspired shots. If you thought you weren't ready for summer to end, these images may just change your mind. You can almost hear the crackle of a bonfire and smell the burnt sweetness of toasted marshmallows.

British photographer James Merrell had an exciting opportunity to bring the cultural hub of England to life through images in the new book 'City Shapers London.' The book, written by Senta Slingerland and published by Lannoo Publishers, features a diverse range of London-based creators and entreprenuers, and explores the way these people are changing the city. Innovations in food, drink, art, fashion, and entertainment and the faces behind them are the themes depicted in James' photographs. Readers will be introduced to cultural pioneers, such as a bartender/bar owner who melds sustainability and luxury, the founder of a fully immersive 'Secret Cinema', and the organizer responsible for the first queer Jewish nightclub in the city.
Scroll below for a sneak peek at the work these London creators are doing, and check out more of James' photography here.

Ignacio Mattos, award-winning restauranteur, recently published a cookbook named for his Nolita eatery Estela shot entirely by Marcus Nilsson. The images within showcase Marcus at his best - beautiful, authentic portraits, and mouthwatering, edgy food. The recipes are delicious and unique (with restaurant favorites such as Cured Fluke with Sea Urchin and Yuzu Kosho, Veal Sweetbreads with Onion, and Parsnip Gelato with Caramel) as is the story behind them - that of a troublemaking teen from Uruguay who found himself through cooking and never lost his vision.
