Photography, Art Direction

OpenTable approached OTHER Studio to direct a collection of inspiring imagery for their new series of restaurant categories. The photographic art direction provided moments of delight and defined a unique visual experience, separating OpenTable from competitor's.

OTHER studio concepted, art directed, produced, shot, and retouched 30+ photos helping define this vibrant and distinct direction for OpenTable photographic art style.
