The Winter 2011 Issue of Luxe Interiors + Design Magazine

January 18, 2011 § 2 Comments

I’ve got another nice photo spread in the new Winter 2011 issue of Luxe Interiors + Design magazine.

This project was a complete restoration/remodel of a gorgeous early 1900’s home in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood. Sutro Architects, Ryan Associates, and Kendall Wilkinson Interior Design collaborated with great success to bring the residence back to its former glory.

Hey wait….I just realized that I blogged about this shoot early last year. So I don’t need to bore you with all the details again.

Kurtwood Farms Cabin

December 21, 2010 § 1 Comment

A few weeks ago I took the ferry over to Vashon Island in the pouring rain to photograph the interiors of the oldest cabin on the island. It was a delightful change of pace from the typical modern interior.

The cabin, a historical landmark, is home to Kurt Timmermeister of Kurtwood Farms. Kurt owned Seattle’s popular Cafe Septieme for almost two decades before selling it a few years ago to focus his energy on the 13 acres of farmland on the island that he has called home for more than 15 years. Today, Kurtwood Farms is a full fledged dairy farm that produces Dinah’s Cheese, a creamy camembert style cheese coveted by local restaurants.

It’s times like these when I wish I was a better writer so that I could more eloquently convey just how interesting and fantastic a place Kurtwood Farms is and just how interesting and cool a guy Kurt is. I hope to return for another visit in the Spring.

Kurt himself is a writer and just finished his first book that’s part memoir and part how-to-start-your-own-farm-instruction-manual entitled “Growing a Farmer: How I Learned to Live Off the Land”.

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…

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! 😉

Waterfront Estate for Sale

September 4, 2010 § Leave a comment

Photographed the exterior of a pretty impressive waterfront home for sale on Mercer Island. The house is still under construction so I’ll be back in a month or so to photograph some of the interior spaces. I say “some” of the interior spaces because the house is over 12,000sqft!

My perch for the evening's exterior shoot

The roof of the boat house provided a great vantage point to capture the scale of the home:

The final shot

Yours for a shade under $30 million….

A few selects from a recent interior photo shoot in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood for interior designer Kendall Wilkinson….

Love the custom wallpaper in these…

Kendall is also featured in this month’s issue of Elle Decor (Sept 2010) alongside fellow designer Darryl Carter in the magazine’s “Top 10 Nesting Tables” feature.
