Project for Elite Duck Calls | Little Rock Arkansas Commercial and Advertising Photographer

These are not just duck calls. These are truly works of art.

My latest photo shoot for Elite Duck Calls was photographing their newest line of calls made of Cocobola Wood. Cocobolo is a tropical hardwood from Central America. Only the heartwood is used which is typically orange or reddish-brown in color, often with a figuring of darker irregular traces weaving through the wood. The less-common sapwood is a creamy yellow, with a sharp boundary with the heartwood. The heartwood is known to change color after being cut, lending to its appeal. Because it stands up well to repeated handling and exposure to water, a common use is gun grips and knife handles.

But for Elite, it's duck calls.

As I was setting up the lighting and getting everything balanced, I just kept staring at these. I could not get over how pretty they are. I even stopped mid-shoot to call my client to comment on how pretty they are. These are all hand-made with a superb tone.

Thanks again to Elite Duck Calls for the opportunity to work with you once again!
