“I recently shot performance sunglasses, an Italian feast and one of the most delicate, dimensional bridal bouquets I’ve ever seen, all in a few days. The content and client expectations couldn’t have been more diverse. Being able to deliver creative images that meet such specific needs is a professional strength I’ve developed over 20 years. But seeing each carrying a rich story all its own—that’s where the energy lives.”
Annette Slade’s two-decade career in commercial and editorial photography was sparked in the desert southwest, nurtured in Chicago’s business district and brought to its current scope in Colorado. She credits her father for encouraging her early study of the photo arts and a remarkable midwestern mentor for the real-world opportunities that sharpened and stretched her skills.
Her passion is for creating unique, emotionally charged images with exceptional detail.
I love looking for and gathering the best props to make the setting for my photos come to life. It's all in the details!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done all kinds of food shoots, anything from on location restaurant shoots to extensive in-studio menu shoots with professional food stylists. I have a great eye for detail so that's how I make my shoots special.
