Check out this picture of Santa Claus in his workshop at the North Pole…. NOT! Its actually taken in my workshop by brilliant photographer Quavondo.
I built this set for him out of random stuff laying around the shop- windows, wine barrel, wood paneling, red fabric, workbench. I borrowed a bunch of old hand tools from my friend Matty Sears. Check out the huge 2 person saw in the background.
Crazy huh? Quavondo is a photographer primarily focusing on celebrity and fashion photography. While mostly working for clients, he shoots for stock photography on the side. He had an idea to do vintage Santa pictures and contacted me out of the blue if he could use my work shop.
Pretty amazing work if you ask me. Clearly he is a man of vision and inspired ideas. Click on the images to go to his website.
Ya, Santa Claus and fashion have very little to do with furniture design…. or so it seems. However, a common interest to create just because we want to brought us together. Another fun day at TomitaDesigns!
