Fall Photo Shoot with Terry Hunziker

November 22, 2010 § Leave a comment

A small selection of finished images from my photo shoot a few weeks ago with Seattle interior designer extraordinaire Terry Hunziker. We so lucked out with the November weather on the day of the shoot I still can’t believe it. I arrived at the apartment early that morning, dropped my stuff in the entry hall, walked in to the main living area, saw the gorgeous light and shadows and textures, stopped, tilted my head back, closed my eyes, smiled and said “yessssssssssss……”

Trying out WordPress’ slideshow thing. Looks pretty good IMHO.

Seattle in November

November 6, 2010 § 2 Comments

Just your typical November afternoon in Seattle. Blue skies, temperature in the low 70’s, gentle breeze. It’s like this every year…Actually that’s a lie. The last time Seattle had a November 4th like this was back in 1949. I was just a young fledgling photographer back then. Ok, that’s a lie too.

I can’t think of a better way to spend a record setting sunny Fall day than photographing a new project for client and pal Terry Hunziker.

Final images to come…

Olive Way Starbucks

October 26, 2010 § 9 Comments

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

Front exterior of Starbucks Olive Way Store

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 »

The Fall 2010 Issue of LUXE Interiors + Design Magazine

October 24, 2010 § 4 Comments

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! 😉

Behind the Scenes: Starbucks

August 30, 2010 § Leave a comment

A behind-the-scenes iPhone shot taken at a recent interior photo shoot for Starbucks.

I’m leaning a little heavy on the table as this was probably taken around 3am on the home stretch of an all nighter – shooting from 10pm till 5am. Much thanks to Tobi The Designer for sticking it out with us for the whole shoot and John Galfano for the fabulous assisting.
