The Team

He has traveled extensively pursuing his own photography as well as offering his photographic skills, pro bono, to numerous NGOs and non-profits.

Merritt Chappie, Stylist

Merritt’s creativity, strong work ethic and organizational skills make her a natural addition to the team. She began her career as an interior designer and spent years working in commercial advertising as a stylist, art director and producer for print and television. She has done production design and built sets for specific styles, managed large budgets and booked talent. Her client’s include hotel brands, Horchow, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Daltile, Coca-Cola and many others. Merritt loves what she does and it shows.

How we work…

The team will consult by phone or email with you several weeks before the photo shoot begins. We will discuss objectives, location setups, scheduling, and answer any questions you may have. You will receive a detailed overview of what to expect prior to, during and after the shoot. We know how important it is to not intrude on the guest experience and will schedule accordingly. We have photographed hundreds of hotels globally for most of the major brands; this makes us comfortable with corporate guidelines.

At the conclusion of the shoot we will build a web gallery of high resolution images for your review and approval. Any changes you request will be made at this time. Once complete, we will upload the final files to your Brand Manager or other corporate media portal
of your choice.

How we play…

When Dan’s not doing commercial photo shoots, he splits his time between his residence in Dallas and his ranch in southeast Oklahoma. He more than likely has a fly rod in his hand, trying to fool a wily trout or bonefish into taking a bite.

Work spills into play when it comes to Merritt. She might be decorating a house, shopping for architectural salvage or scanning Houzz for new techniques and ideas. She loves well produced television and movies and enjoys them in her spare time.
