Hi, and welcome to the unveiling of my new studio website. My working philosophy is simple and honest, harkening back to the days of film and before any digital enhancements were invented. I allow as much as possible to happen in the camera, naturally, using post production as needed to bring the final image to it’s best conclusion.The site features both new and older images that I feel still have relevance today, showing the breadth and scope of my 30 plus years in this business. I wanted to make the site fun to explore and easy to navigate through the various galleries and categories of images, subjects and projects. “You are only as good as your last shoot,” says the old adage. So I’ve included a category titled “What’s New,” where I’ll regularly be adding current completed client projects, personal work and new samples. So don’t forget to come back, as often as you’d like. Enjoy! Scott Lanza
I recently shot a project for Anthologie for their client Top Note Tonics, a start up company in Milwaukee that crafts unique artisanal tonic concentrates. The art director needed high end product shots of the clients bottled products for their new website and collateral uses. I created a typical lighting set-up to make the bottles almost like they were photo illustrated and made a photo record of the set to show the company owners what’s involved to shoot products like theirs to give the results they were given. After retouching the final result was quite well received!
