BTS: Egg-cellent Fry-Day

Behind the scenes, Creatives, Fun!, James Tse Photo, Studio


What’s that thing they say about making omelettes? About cracking eggs?

I’m not yolking (sorry) when I say that it took eggs-emplary (sorry) efforts and a little bit of scrambling (sorry) to capture the high-flying and gravity defying egg-splosion (sorry). Omletting (sorry) some of the BTS photos crack (sorry) through to show you all of the preparation, planning, trial-runs, and of course eggs that were sacrificed in the making of James’ egg-septional creative shot (I’m not sorry about that one).





05Happy Fry-day! (sorry)

Thanks for the BTS photos, Kate!
