Nixon Watches by David Whetstone

I recently photographed these watches for the talented designer David Whetstone. David currently works for CincoDesignOffice where he a lead designer on the watch and audio programs for Nixon.

David came up with the concepts for the shoot and we collaborated together to create some portfolio worthy images for him. For the Falcon series (first three images), we went with natural light on textured surfaces for a rich and warm feel.  For the GoGo watches (last three), it was all about pop and bold colors, so I lit it with strobes and used fill cards to create the high key look.

Here’s a little more about David:

David holds a Bachelor of Science in Design from The Ohio State University and also spent a quarter studying interaction design at Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee. While in school, David interned with Priority Designs in Columbus, Ohio and DeWalt in Towson, Maryland.

David has a unique ability to curate what he sees in all avenues of contemporary culture to inform design strategies and decisions. He views each design program as an opportunity to think holistically and embraces multiple disciplines of design to tell compelling stories

David’s got some other great work on his website Go and check it out! Here are the rest of the photos we shot:

Four years ago to the day, I was in Paris with my wife for a vacation where I took this photo. Deeply saddened by the news of violence and terror that happened there today. Our thoughts and support are with the people of France #prayersforfrance #parisjetaime #stoptheviolence
