The 2017 Thos. Moser Annual Catalog just came out and we are super pumped. The graphic design and layout is really nice and speaks to the quality and craftsmanship at Thos. Moser. On the inside spread of the catalog are some candid images of the Moser family. We captured the large horizontal image of Thomas Moser and his two sons amongst all the stacks of wood. You can view the entire catalog online here.
Product Retouching – Furniture – BTS Timelapse
Product retouching is all about fine tuning the subject to ensure it looks as good as possible. A majority of the post production work on this shot is aimed at cleaning up the area so there are no distractions whatsoever. The beauty of a simple background like this is it really lets the product command center stage. We knocked down the glare on the right chair and enhanced the highlights and shadows on both chairs to further define the shape. Beyond that it was cleaning up the floor and dodging and burning the areas that were recessed. Then there was the white wall. At first glance its quite hard to see any problems. By pulling down a curves layer you can quickly see the areas that need attention, mainly the top of the frame where the shadows were inconsistent. There wasn’t to much heavy lifting in post but rather a refinement and cleanup of what was already there.
New Work for Thomas Moser
We recently finished another photo shoot for Thomas Moser that included some of their newest products. We traveled down to their DC showroom and spent the day moving around and staging furniture. The beauty of photographing in their showroom is the abundance of natural light that pours in through a series of large windows. All we needed to do was frame up the composition and sprinkle in a little bit of fill light. Post production involved a lot of cleanup (especially the floor), color/contrast and sharpening. Its easy to make these images look great when you’re working with such a beautiful product.
Thos. Moser Fall Catalog
The 2015 Thos. Moser Fall Catalog just arrived in the mail and we are thrilled to see our work again grace the pages of this beautifully designed catalog. The layout and execution of the catalog is stunning and it does a fantastic job of showcasing the Thos. Moser product line and the people behind the craftsmanship. We greatly enjoyed working with the creative team at Thos. Moser, their attention to detail and pre-shoot planning really made for a smooth and flawless photo shoot.
Thos. Moser Catalog
The 2015 Summer/Spring Thos. Moser catalog just arrived in the mail and we are thrilled to see our work grace the pages of this beautifully designed catalog. Along with the catalog is a postcard and a mini catalog that features the latest addition to the Thos. Moser portfolio, the Cumberland Collection. Just flipping through the pages there is a real sense of elegance about this furniture.
We are honored to be given the opportunity to photograph such beautiful handmade American furniture. Some of the photos featured in these catalogs can been seen in the product section of our website.
Behold, our latest video production! We recently spent some time with our friend Gabriel Sutton (an incredible furniture maker) and our new friend Heather Chontos (an incredible artist). They have collaborated on a piece of furniture and it is something to see. Check it out!

Well this is exciting news. Thos. Moser is up for Interior Design Best of Year Awards for both the Cumberland Table and the Fahmida Chair, both of which we photographed. Congratulations to Thos. Moser.
Earlier this year we photographed some beautiful furniture built by Thos. Moser, the attention to detail on the day of the shoot and the work in done in post production made for a series of really nice images, we were very pleased with how everything came together. Below is one of the images that was used in an ad.
