I love Architectural photography and the many challenges it brings.  I come from the old school approach when it comes to this type of work.  The lighting is so complex, the slightest  change in prospective requires a completely new lighting setup. The work can be very tedious at time, but is also so very rewarding when it all comes together.


Blackmore Residences, Redwood City Ca. Designed by Kastrop Group Architects, of Redwood City, Ca.

This project called for a very unique, clean design.  Owner builder Jim Blackmore, has a keen eye for beauty and fine detail  and an abundance  of skill to achieve the quality craftsmanship needed for this remodel. It was an honer to work with such a talented team of individuals on this project, which was  intended for submission to Fine Home Building, Kitchen’s & Bath’s special edition.
The Kitchen features a handcrafted oak cabinets.


The Master bedroom features oak hardwood floors and walnut trim throughout.



The Master Bath far left, features a beautiful, unique curved glass shower enclosure and marble throughout. The Living room features vaulted ceiling. shot from the breakfast nook adjoining the far side of the kitchen.

excalibur_8843bWOW!!   What a thrill!  My first trip to Las Vegas, was on assignment to photograph the Excalibur Hotel Casino. Of course the best veiw for this project just happened to be from a suit on the top floor of  the MGM Grand across the street. The Excalibur Hotel, Casino, Las Vegas, NV. Needless to say I love Las Vegas and hope to return very soon :)
