We were thrilled to be approached by Marcia Margolius and Ian Hurwitz to create a unique cover for their prestigious Décor & Design directory. This year they were looking for something bold, something daring, something that would set them apart from the crowd.

Here’s a little sneak peek as to what went on behind the scenes, and yes, contrary to popular belief, style shooting isn’t all fun, games and glory.
