Talk about a cool place! Driving up to the unassuming townhome complex in Irvine where Susan Thiel headed the design, you wouldn't think you would be walking into a completely custom home. Every inch of this place was touched in one way or another. So much attention to detail in the design is evident everywhere you look. Not one square inch was left un-utilized. Custom cabinets made up most of the wall space and commercial LED lights provided the ambiance. Really fun place to shoot! Can't wait to shoot some more of her projects!
A few months back - I got to spend the afternoon with Sandra Castro-Bran with Stuff Interiors photographing one of her many projects. We started off shooting the newly furnished formal living room along with a few kitchen and family photos. Then we headed to the backyard! This was a really cool space. Not often do I see a contemporary design like this in suburbia North Tustin. We shoot into the night - when the space truly comes to life!
All of the exterior images where photographed with nothing but the ambient light. I really wanted a nature feel to the photos to reflect all of the hard work and tought that went into the design and lighting scheme.
