Here is another amazing project completed by JR Abbott Construction that I had the pleasure of photographing. The goal of this project was to remodel the Laurel Street entrance and make it more inviting and beautiful for people to enter the hospital as well as to install a new security gate system to better control traffic entering the parking area. The remodel turned out beautifully and I really love the benches and landscaping as part of the median. Also, lets be honest, you can't beat a well placed flag pole with a beautiful American flag waving in the wind. It really completed the project.

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.
