Nashville-based photographer Abigail Bobo’s Wonderful Machine listing had the Ogilvy Mather team head-over-heels for her work! The agency hired her for the latest Morton Salt campaign, which aimed to showcase this small ingredient’s versatility and demonstrate how salt is used in everyday life.
Visually, the motion team wanted to create a restaurant scene in someone’s home, where professional chef Karl Worley was brought on board to supervise the cooking tutorial portion of the shoot. After that, the video leads the viewer to the opening of a backyard café for family and friends to enjoy.
Karl kept us all in stitches with his jokes and we all learned a lot about cooking and salt. It felt like a great home moment.
Working alongside a motion crew, Abigail found herself facing some challenges, as photo and video creation often require different lighting techniques. Therefore, Abigail took note of which shots needed to be staged on separate occasions for still purposes and for motion purposes.
Far from feeling salty, the reactions to the project have been nothing but sweet amidst all parties involved. Abigail shares with us her hunger for capturing great stories through her images and how the Ogilvy Mather gang went above-and-beyond to do just that. Not to mention, they did a great job reconnecting Abigail with her close Nashville friends, who were also valuable players around the beautifully styled tables of this production!

Albert Law, a Vancouver-based photographer, was recently serenaded by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra while creating fresh imagery for their website and print materials. As envisioned by the design agency, 123w, Albert was able to capture authentic images that felt “in the moment.”
With a map of the orchestra’s seating arrangements in hand, Albert set out to attend one of the group’s rehearsals. Acting as a fly on the wall, he snapped away while the ensemble went about their practice, capturing the musicians in their element.
Having a good understanding of what was going to happen and when allowed me to be in the right place at the right time for those candid moments.
Standing ovations are in order, as Albert’s contributions to the revised web and print concepts have been well received. Albert shares with us the thrill of being on stage as the music filled the room around him, and how he appreciated having the opportunity to be a part of such a special experience. Albert has his fingers crossed for a round two of images, and of course another chance to experience such a magical performance.

Tasked to shoot with an iPhone 7, Los Angeles-based photographer Liz Kuball recently completed a series for Surface Magazine’s newest section, titled “Process.” Photo Editor Dani Vernon enlisted Liz for this assignment after the two spent a couple of years crossing paths at major publications like Afar and Travel + Leisure. Finally, they found the opportunity to collaborate, and Liz was thrilled to take on the project.
The two-page, front-of-book feature showcases the fashion designing duo, Laura Vassar Brock and Kris Brock, known as Brock Collection, interacting in their studio. The finished images include a portrait of the pair in their “work uniform” and a variety of scenes of where all the design magic happens.
With the “fashionably late” arrival of Laura, Liz took advantage of her free time to get used to the idea of shooting with an iPhone, rather than a digital SLR format, using Kris and the studio-space as her subjects. Additionally, she collected B-roll footage which was requested by Surface, too.
Happy to step out of her comfort zone, Liz was overjoyed to be a part of such a fun project where she had the chance to interact with people in their working environment. After all, meeting new and interesting people is what she loves most about being a photographer!
