As a photographer of architecture and modern interiors, I shoot for a very talented group of designers, mostly in the San Francisco Bay Area. These are some recent projects I photographed, and the fresh faces that designed them.
Here is an amazing update of a 70’s California coastal home and a sneak peak of a soon-to-be-published feature in Luxe Magazine. Designer Anne Marie Barton created an immersive retreat of natural elements, softness and modernity on a Mendocino bluff.
And here is a SF pied-a-terre, with clean whites, a formal grid and soft touches. This project is a collaboration between Nancy Hammonds, as interior designer, and Barbara Chambers as architect.
Here, Parisa O’Connell and Clinton Miller created modern glam atop Nob Hill. The project can be seen in Interiors Magazine‘s September 2015 issue.
Here, a modernist Mom and Mom shop create inside-outside homes in the San Francisco, Berkeley and the Bay Area. Beautiful work by Tierney Conner Architecture.
Architects Eliza Hart and Stuart Wright of hartwrightarchitects.com from San Francisco bring strong programing and playful color to modern homes in the SF Bay Area. This is a ground up home in Larkspur on a floodplain, overcoming many restrictions.
With years of shooting high-end homes for modernists designers and architects, I have honed my vision of the great interior photo. Elements of modern interiors include: clean lines, a limited material palette and the thoughtful use of negative space. In colors, I often see bright whites and soft grays accented by natural materials. In photographing modern interiors I will use a formal one-point perspective vantage point, and take strong elevation views. Often, I use a lower camera position to make the furnishings more graphic. I give the photo a precision and snap that lives on the screen and the page of a magazine by the very deft use of Photoshop.
