Peter Millar Spring 2015

Raleigh, NC – Our team at Exum Photography finished the Peter Millar Spring 2015 line book shoot in early July. Over the period of about a month, we shot and edited over 750 product and model shots. Our two models where Amy Lemons and Robert Stewart, represented by Marilyn’s Modeling Agency and recruited by Michael DeFosse (talent representative extraordinaire!). We must give a shout out to Peter Millar creatives Lindsay Browder & Anne Rhodes for producing and managing the entire photo shoot and catalog design as well as our product stylist team led by Julia Abrams with help from Jeff Barbour. Our team of interns, Morgan, Morgan # 2 and Kelsey from NC State, helped create a smooth assembly line of unpacking, steaming, styling, shooting, editing and repacking. A catalog shoot has so many moving parts. Big thanks to make-up artist Jami Svay for keeping both our models in check. Can’t thank my immediate team at Exum Photo enough. Griffin Davis and Kelsey Morgan were early to rise daily to be on set every morning. They are exceptionally skilled photo editors, set builders and product shooters. It truly takes a collaborative team to execute such a massive project. Thanks again to all! Photography by Steve Exum & Griffin Davis of Exum Photography.

Drug Addiction Does Not Discriminate

Arts and Science Magazine editor Kim Spurr collaborated closely with Steve Exum to brainstorm on creating artwork for a story on drug abuse. The story’s focus was on neuroscience research taking place in the lab of UNC-Chapel Hill psychology professor Regina Carelli. The copy dealt directly with the psychologically addictive properties of drug abuse relative to substances that are physically addictive. Since we there were no drug abuse subjects interviewed for the story Steve created a photo illustration in studio. Steve chose Matt Stephens from Burlington, NC after meeting him in the gym. “With Matt’s bald head, large brow and deeply inset eyes, he’s look was perfect” said Exum. “We added a piece of glass sprinkled with droplets of water to create a rainy day, depressing mood for our main shot. I’m super pleased with the shot and prefer it in black and white.” Exum Said Photography by Steve Exum
