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.
One of my good clients, Larry Silke with Wallbeds N More, Got on the cover of The Home Mag! We shoot this back in February. It was a long day of shooting, but we can away with some great stuff - as you can see!
Pretty rewarding seeing your work go out to thousands of home owners throughout Orange County! I look forward to do it again.
This past 4th of July I tried my hand at photographing some fireworks. My wife and I arrived at the location nice and early to get a decent spot and set up. Only to find that once the show started my view of the fireworks were blocked by a tree! Moving quickly is key if you want to get some decent shots. So we picked up and ran about 50 feet or so to get a nice clear view. From there it was just determining how many fireworks I wanted in each frame and adjusted the shutter speed accordingly. With a little bit of luck and timing I got a handful of shots that I thought came out pretty nice! Have a look and let me know what you think!
