About Heath

It was a love of photography that inspired Heath Robbins to leave his job as an agency executive and travel the world with a camera in hand. More than twenty years later, it is his love for food, people, and making pictures, that continues to fuel his commercial photography career with focus and passion. For every client and for every shoot, Heath sets out to capture moments, tastes, and emotions that pull people out of their everyday, and straight into the moments that he creates.

Enactus: Inspiring Others to Act

"Each of us has an entrepreneurial spirit. A passion that—if unleashed—can inspire others to act. A talent that—if developed—can create opportunity for ourselves, our families and our communities. An idea that—if cultivated—can build a healthier, more prosperous and peaceful world." This is the motto of a company we are proud to call a client. Enactus is a "community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepeneurial action to transform lives and shape a better more sustainable world."

Our friends at the VIA Agency commissioned Heath to capture still lifes, illustrating many of the projects that Enactus is involved in. We jumped at the opportunity to work on such a meaningful project. Our producer and stylist, Caroline Woodward, spent weeks sourcing products from all over the world including marionettes from India and authentic Army boots from Canada. Oh, and, then there was dumpster diving for recyclables... Our favorite, though, was the pack of live chicks delivered from a farm in Ohio!  Three shooting days resulted in some images that we are all really proud of. 

 Thanks to VIA and Enactus for choosing us to work on such a meaningful project. ~Jenna

Conceptual Work

For the last couple years I have been shooting a Christmas card for some friends of mine. The objective has always been to poke a little fun at all the holiday cards we all see every year and to do so in the style that I have shot much of my conceptual work. Taking it over the top, plus a good dose of humor is a given so you can imagine the fun we have shooting it. This year we also shot the whole thing in the studio which as you will see was something of a production to make and pull down. There's a time lapse of it at the end here.

Coco Grace does all the hair and make up and although it doesnt seem so - Lucy was having a great time.

Verne Cordova was, as usual, the master of props and set decorating!

Typical work day for Drew.

Just another day at the beach.

Behind the Scenes: On Location for Keurig

We have always loved to share snapshots of the good times had on our sets; we even have a wall in the studio dedicated to displaying them.  And now, thanks to our clients King Fish Media and Keurig along with videographer/editor Curtis Packer, we have a behind the scenes video. Click below to see lots of laughs, hard work and beautiful imagery from our one day shoot, on location, for the Keurig Holiday Catalog. Check it out here:

Cheers!

Here's hoping you survived the holiday season...in style!

Each year, Heath creates original food and lifestyle images to feature on our holiday greeting card. Given the continued excitement about our "Out of Control Mom" picture we thought everyone would appreciate a holiday version.

Prop stylist Tui Stark went all out, again, creating a room worthy of any mother's nightmare. Wardrobe styling courtesy of Abby Bielagus, of Ennis Inc, our model, Emilie Rey, is represented by Model Club, Inc with hair and make/up by CoCo Grace. I wish I looked half as good as Emilie during this hectic holiday season. Maybe next year. Cheers to 2014! ~Jenna

 

 

 

Island Creek Oysters

This Spring my personal lifestyle work had a big farm to table theme to it. At the end of May I was lucky enough to photograph the Island Creek Oyster crew at work in Duxbury Bay in some extremely low tide conditions. They were hand picking the oysters on this particularly beautiful morning and Jason and I followed them around asking a million questions and clicking away. I learned a ton about one of my favorite foods and then was treated to eating them right out of the bay. Nothing better!

Here are a few of my favorites from the day. You can see more of my lifestyle work, shot on location, on my website.

 

Cant beat it...
