Thomas and Ashlee from Extremis by Miami Photographer Tom Clark

Ashlee Anvik and Thomas Wynants think it’s time you get some outdoor furniture.

Thomas, a proud Belgian, met Montana-native Ashlee in the U.S. and soon after they set out to take the Wynants family business to the American market. Extremis designs and manufactures outdoor furniture, or “tools for togetherness.” The company’s approach is “Don’t make anything, unless it is both necessary and useful … and if it is, don’t hesitate to make it beautiful,” a minimalist and eco-friendly philosophy that Tom and myself can fully support.

While we do love our friends, Ashlee and Thomas, we must also love the globalization and interconnectedness taking place every second of every day. The advent of AirBNB made it possible for this connection to happen, combined with our guests ambitious and non-laconic personalities.

They were able to feel at home and a connection soon ensued. We bonded under the umber night sky, eating a dinner of cheeseburgers with a side of vibrant, creamy succotash in the backyard; all while discussing sleek Belgium designed furniture (seriously worth checking out) and of course, world politics.

Furniture Silhouette by Miami Photographer Tom Clark

Photographers have a hard enough time shooting lacquer surfaces… this piece from Kravet threw a few more challenges in with a center mirrored niche surrounded by black glass. Nothing was out of view with these reflective surfaces and so lighting this piece was fun (can you sense the sarcasm?)

Sometimes it pays to be a control freak. In this case, no matter what the angle, the camera was visible in the subject and I had to make it disappear. As you can see it was a success, but I’m afraid I can’t mention how. Photographers never reveal their tricks, accept maybe after a drink or two.

Below are a few more angles from this shoot.
