I was so honored when last year Megan George of The Zen Succulent asked me to be the photographer for her upcoming about terrarium crafts, Modern Terrarium Studio. The book, now complete, is a softcover craft book published by Fons & Porter and features dozens of terrarium instructions that you can build on your own. The book hits shelves at the end of June. In the coming days I’m going to showcase some of my favorite pictures I took for the book, most of which didn’t make the cut since the book is more of a step-by-step project book versus a hard-cover coffee table book.
Below are some of the photos I took for Modern Terrarium Studio that have strong pops of black. Tomorrow I’ll showcase ones on a lighter palette.
This whole process has been exciting to be a part of and I can’t wait to produce more content like this both for myself and others. I’ll actually be photographing another softcover craft book for Fons & Porter about embroidery crafts. In the future I am very excited about the prospect of producing and pitching my own content in the format I see in my minds eye with my own perspective, aesthetic and point of view, something that I have dreamed about for as long as I can remember. This has been such great learning experience and I am soaking up every minute of it.
Megan will be hosting a book launch party at West Elm Southpoint in Durham, NC on Friday June 26th. I’ll be there, hope to see you as well. You can also buy Megan’s book through Gather’s website or in the Gather shop in Cary, NC too.
