MAD MEN" was the direction I received from art director Erin Wengrovius at BUST Magazine a couple months ago. This shot is for the fun and fabulously nostalgic Museum of Femorbila section that is in every issue. This Museum of Femorbilia article happens to be on one of the first typewriters that was geared towards women in the 60s. Fortunately, I happen to love MAD MEN and between prop stylist Stephanie Hanes and my personal collection of 60s objects we pulled this off with no budget. The desk lamp happen to come directly from my mother's old drafting table when she worked as a designer at an advertising agency in the 60s, so it truly played the part.
I think we were really on a retro 60s theme for this next pasta shot too. Even though the images were for different articles, they go together in some ways. This overhead shot made it into the magazine. However, prop stylist Stephanie Hanes, food stylist, Lauren LaPenna and I did a second full page option that we were trying to push instead (below). Go check it out on stands now!
