Apple Retail Lifestyle Photography
The opening of new Apple Flagship Stores in 2015 created a need to update existing
lifestyle photography, showing Apple's new store design, reconsidered shopping experience,
minimalist architecture, and communal spaces.
We traveled to New York, China, Japan, Dubai, and South Korea with the
goal of creating culturally-relevant, realistic Apple Retail shopping imagery,
using real customers and real Specialists.
Previous v. Updated Image Libraries
Our previous imagery (LEFT) was stylistically and physically dated (products, store interiors, lighting, Specialist uniforms).
Our updated imagery (RIGHT) used natural light, muted tones, and classic clothing styles to stay relevant for 3-5 years.

The result was a library of 40,000+ images to be used throughout Apple.com,
representing a variety of shopping experiences in Apple Retail Stores worldwide.

I joined the interactive retail team at Apple in 2014 and in that time have worked on an array of projects spanning Apple.com,
the Apple Online Store, the merge of both into one URL, in-store digital merchandizing, photography,
the Apple Store App, and countless product launches and updates. This is a small sampling of the work that I’ve touched,
as part of a larger team, and some of the work that I’m most proud to have contributed.
