Another fun project from Cornerstone Construction. Every project they complete they are upping their game with quality and scope and this one was no exception. This beautiful modern rustic design was completed for a production company in the Burbank CA area. I just love the feel of this place. The combination of the polished concrete, warm colored wood, and grey walls just really wakes this project unique. Not to mention the size of this place is huge. It is hard to believe that this was an empty warehouse only a few months ago. It really turned out nicely.
I always feel so blessed to have the opportunity to photograph these projects. Such a blast.
I had the amazing opportunity to photograph the new office of Abbott Construction, a few weeks ago. They needed some images of their new office space for a brochure to announce their new location to clients for an open house. Normally Abbott has me out photographing their finished projects, like elegant emergency rooms, or beautiful medical facilities, but this was a chance to photograph the business itself in its element. It was wonderful to get to hang out in person and get to know the company and its employees in a more intimate way. There is nothing better than personal, one on one, relationships with your clients and this made the photo shoot particularly enjoyable.
Also, it was super fun to incorporate the staff into a lot of my photographs. It added that human touch to the photos that I think really makes the architecture photography more special.

I had the chance to shoot a commercial space recently for Cornerstone Construction. They completed the build out for Glenoaks Escrow which really turned out beautifully. I particularly love the lobby.
I got an email from my client/friend Melissa over at Abbott construction saying they got some canvas prints done for their lobby and I should check out this picture. I was over the moon to see some of my work (Not every photos is mine) featured as part of this collection, Including the picture on the right! How cool is that? Man, there is nothing like knowing your clients are happy with your work. So awesome! Thanks so much Melissa for sending me this picture! So cool! So happy to be part of the team!

Another exciting architecture project completed. This one for San Fernando High School Teen Center. This is a really cool pilot project where they are providing health care services on the campus of the San Fernando High School for students who wouldn't have access other wise. What an amazing way to help the community have access to health care. You can find out more info here. News Article
This project had its challenges. As you can see from the before and after example above, there was a lot of photoshop work needed to remove a lot of unwanted objects. Speaking of unwanted objects, I would have loved for the fence to not block such a cool looking building but sometimes there is nothing you can do and just have to work around it. In the end I really liked how the image turned out even with the fence.
The other big challenge was the size of the main lobby. Most of the images of the lobby were achieved by stitching together multiple images in photoshop into mini panoramas. This made for some complicated editing to retain details in the windows but worked out well to capture such a large space. What a cool waiting room right?
I really enjoyed shooting this project and supporting such a great cause. It is nice to know the images will be used to promote the health care services at the high school for those that really need it!

I had the wonderful pleasure of shooting for the Beach Life Podiatric Laser Center this week.
They contacted me through Cornerstone Construction who had just completed construction on their new office design. The clinic turned out beautifully and they were really excited to get some pictures for their website.
This shoot was pretty straight forward but was not without its technical challenges. There was plenty of experimentation on site to discover how best to capture the space for the look I was trying to achieve. I wanted to make sure to show off the natural light coming into the space rather than the typical "clinical over head lighting" that most doctors offices have. In the end I captured it both ways, once with lights on, and once without so that I could blend them together in post and get the best of both worlds. The final images turned out wonderfully and in the end really showed off the essence of the space.
Also, while I was there I did some head shots for Dr. Michael Eskarous as well. It was fun to take off the architecture photography hat for a minute and do some portraits. The one I included in the gallery I thought turned out really well.
Overall the client was really please with the final images and so was I.
