Last week I photographed the newly remodeled Olive Way Starbucks store the weekend before it’s grand opening/unveiling to the public.

There has been a lot of buzz around this store for a number of reasons but primarily because it represents a major new direction for Starbucks. While both “inspired by Starbucks” stores in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood have been serving beer and wine for almost a year, The Olive Way store will be the first branded Starbucks store to serve beer and wine (after 4pm). « Read the rest of this entry »

Blog Theme

October 26, 2010 § Leave a comment

I’ve been messing around with the blog the past few days trying to get a look that I like and have settled on WordPress’ “Oulipo” theme for now. I like the fonts and the layout. I was really jazzed on some Graph Paper Press themes but it’s going to take some work and lots of help from the brother-in-law to configure and get it all working.

I also kinda like “Wu Wei” and may switch to that in the next few hours. It’s not as elegant as “Oulipo” but it does allow for viewing images larger than 460 pixels. Decisions decisions!

The Fall 2010 Issue of LUXE Interiors + Design Magazine

I’ve got a nice photo spread in the new Fall 2010 issue of the “Northwest” edition of LUXE Interiors + Design Magazine.

This is the cover of the issue. It's not my photo.

The project is an impressive downtown Seattle penthouse remodel done by interior designer Gregory Carmichael, architect Richard Sundberg and built by Schultz | Miller. It’s always interesting to see how others end up arranging and cropping your images for a layout. Often times a creative crop by a photo editor reveals a “new” image hidden within the original. I really like how they put it all together….

The issue is on the newsstands now. Be sure to pick up a copy and support the cause! 😉
