Wintzell’s Famous Oysters to be Featured in Gulf Shores/Orange Beach Advertising

Posted on April 30, 2014 to News & Events

On Thursday, April 25, 2014 it was all hands on deck, as the dining room of our Orange Beach location was transformed from a chow hall into a temporary photography studio.

Wintzell’s is honored to be chosen by the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau to be featured in advertisements for the area. The ad campaign will feature restaurants, hotels and attractions throughout Gulf Shores and Orange Beach and will showcase a few of each location’s signature item.


What were the items we selected to feature for the campaign? Oysters of course! For nearly three hours, renowned photographer Courtland Richards captured abundant photos of our oyster sampler and raw oysters.  Wintzell’s will be able to choose shots from the photo shoot to use in our own marketing and advertisement.

Courtland Richards has specialized in photographing food, architecture, and people on the Gulf Coast for over thirty years. His accomplishments include being published regularly in Southern Breeze, Zalea, and Southern Living. Because of the beautiful images Courtland captures and the unmatched professionalism he exudes, everyone at Wintzell’s felt extremely privileged to finally be able to work with him.


Just to give you a “taste” and behind the scenes perspective, these photos were taken by our Wintzell’s team. The pictures Courtland took are in the process of being edited and we look forward to being able to post the professional ones once we have the go ahead from the Convention and Visitors Bureau. This process could take some time, but we know that the photographs will be well worth the wait!

Special thanks to Courtland Richards and the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau!
