Talking Stick Resort and Casino

It’s not often you can say you style and shoot a unabomber, a suit, and tommy bahama for an upcoming photo-shoot.  Well, that’s just what took place inside our studio in January. Local agency, Riester came to photographer Patrick Darby and tonic with a great concept that incorporated these three poker personas for their upcoming poker tournament ad for the Talking Stick Resort and Casino. We had a long production list to produce this concept and a great time with the Riester team to put this one together. We brought in our good friend and local stylist Abby Ripes to source the needs for the “No one enters the arena without battle gear” concept. Here’s the tear sheet and a great behind the scenes shot. We can definitely say we are now experts in poker personas and sourcing lockers… anything for our clients!
