Photographing The Four Seasons


The recently renovated Talavera Restaurant at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale is a contemporary Spanish steakhouse that focuses on traditional Latin ingredients with a modern and innovative edge. The Four Seasons marketing team reached out to the studio to capture these stunning spaces and a new menu in preparation for a large media release. To comply with brand standards, the spaces were captured with a human element which brought a story telling component into each image. From resorts to residential and corporate spaces – we always enjoy creating imagery to help support and strengthen each location’s special visual personality and characteristics.

Tonic Photo Studios Works with TOMY: Boon Inc., Lamaze and JJ Cole

Tonic Photo Studios Works with TOMY: Boon Inc., Lamaze and JJ Cole

TOMY toys inspire dreams in kids of all ages. We have been able to partner on a variety of the TOMY brands over the years that include Boon, Lamaze and JJ Cole. Each brand has their own photography needs and unique set requirements – it’s been a streamlined process for tonic due to our infrastructure and crew to be able to meet these project requirements. These set needs have ranged from creating a functioning bathtub set in studio to then various living room scenarios in studio. Out of the studio, we have scouted and secured several homes and park spaces. In additional to sourcing locations, we have managed the casting and secured over 40 child talent for these projects. Every project has been unique and an absolute blast as we have been able to work with a great client and loads of cute kids and products!
