FW11 + SS12 Photo Shoot | The Stahl House Case Study #22

We just wrapped shooting our FW 2011 campaign (The Williams Collection) and SS 2012 campaign (The Kerouac Collection.

We shot both at the visually stunning and architecturally significant home, The Stahl House Case Study #22.

The Williams Collection was shot by good friend and collaborator, Carl Lindstrom.

The Kerouac Collection was shot by another close friend and  collaborator, J. Everette Perry, who in addition to being a photographer, also doubles as the West Coast Editor of Paper Magazine.

A big thank you to the entire cast and crew who made this 15 person, 10 hour day one of the best in recent memory.

The Art of Hosting a Dinner

The art of the dinner party is something we here at GENTRY take very seriously.

Here are several notes we’ve gathered over the years of hosting dinners that we feel are essential to a successful dinner party:

+ Guests : A balance of familiar and unfamiliar- there should always be a dark horse or two who are new faces, they always add a sense of novelty to the conversation. The 80-20 rule of vocation- Not everyone should work in the same industry

+ Restaurant / Food : Family style is always the best. Sharing food is a communal experience.

+ Seating : The art of the seating chart is truly an art form. Split up couples where possible and the boy-girl seating vs. the girl-girl seating is always preferable.

+ Host : Should always sit in the middle of the table.

+ Drinks : Before all sitting down, find a spot near the bar- or when available, around a fire pit outside- where people can ease into the dinner

+ Have a guest list like the ones pictured here:
