My Honor and Pleasure Working with Photographer Jim Westphalen
Photography by Jim Westphalen
I'm so lucky to work with many talented artists, photographers and stylists. This week has been a busy one working with photographer Jim Westphalen and his team (Lenny and Bill) and my team (Tina and Nora) to shoot and style a gorgeous Vermont furniture line. What I've learned over the week is not only is Jim a very talented photographer but he is kind and generous with his time and knowledge. Styling for a catalog is very different than styling for editorial (magazine, etc.). He's been helpful in helping me see the difference. :) Yesterday he had a new person helping him out (someone who wants to learn the biz). As he worked, he explained things to him. Just amazing. If you want to see some of his work, go to his website. His blog has great stories as well as photography. From country living photography to architectural, Jim will show you it through the eyes of a photographer. Jim's generosity is a reminder to us all -- give of our time so that others may benefit from our knowledge and experience. Enjoy!
My Best, Joanne
