The mother/daughter team behind Ink & Stitch offer an awesome example of the power of presentation. Their bags are simple and functional with minimal but beautiful detail BUT they went all out armed with creativity for these campaign shots! Instantly they have added attitude and fun to a very simple product and I find myself looking for the “add to cart” button.

The pic above is one I snapped a week or so ago, looking across Lake Wanaka on a hazy winters day. I am almost at the end of the first week of the ski season at Treble Cone -Murphys Law has struck me down with a mean cold/cough/temp/gross thing to coincide nicely with the busy time and my managers departure. Uptown problems my friends but nonetheless it has been a challenge to tick all the boxes and yet again the blog seemed to slide. All health boosters are out so

It just so happened to be my dear friend Andy’s birthday and mother nature declared a crystal clear winters day in celebration.
