When I was creative director on the Sea Island Resorts account, I had many such opportunities and it can spoil you after awhile. Confession: I’m a toiletries hoarder and each time I stayed at The Cloister I would [...]

A few years back, The Designory held the annual Director\’s meeting in San Francisco. One of the side trips was San Quentin. It was a strange place.
I was experiencing some issues with my camera inside, and unfortunately don\’t recall all the settings I ended up with, but the photos were astounding. These are unretouched images. [...]
