Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Photographer John Paul Urizar

I'd never heard of Australian photographer John Paul Urizar before I stumbled over one of his pictures over at Automatism. When I dove head first into his portfolio I found myself in a beautifully serene place! I'm sharing some of my favorites here. I downloaded some more pics and saved them in my "Styling Inspiration" folder, but I have no idea who the stylists behind these shots are. It's a shame that stylists are rarely credited in photographers' portfolios, don't you think?

    Such a wonderful Australian talent! I'm ashamed to admit I hadn't seen his work before either... Beautiful styling in your selection of images, the stump tray containing the candles is very clever

    I love these photos - but you´re right; the stylist should get more credit. :-)

    Hello, When I originally saw this post I knew that somewhere in my inspiration collection I had tear outs of the original article featured in the middle four photos but at the time I couldn't find where I'd filed. I stumbled upon it yesterday : )

    The stylist responsible is Stephanie Powell - the current Style Director of Home Beautiful magazine in Australia...it was a beautiful shoot.
