Corbin Photo Shoot

Posted by on Jul 9, 2013 in Blog, Introducing New Work

Putting our work in a new venue always generates a fresh dynamic for the pieces – exciting and often unexpected. The collaboration of a breathtaking location with the unique talent of photographer Ron Berg, made Corbin sculpture and accessories shine in the best “light”

Location, location, location! We were so lucky to be invited to shoot at the elegant home of Jim and Missy Neville in Mission Hills, Kansas. While an outdoor shoot was not the original plan, we simply couldn’t resist the picturesque gardens, pool and outdoor living areas. Tom and Julia toured the property prior to the photo shoot to select and place the pieces

Sculpture, accessories and furniture were placed around the property, inside and out. When every corner you turn is this lovely, it’s hard (and fun!) to select the just-right spot

Ron Berg’s creativity, humor and patience made the day a complete success (RonBergPhoto.com). Kansas City weather did not disappoint with it’s melty humidity in the morning followed by threatening storms in the afternoon
