I am very fortunate to have architectural clients that produce such wonderful work! Last year, I photographed the Mathew’s residence in Shevlin Commons, here in Bend Oregon for clients, Kirsti Wolfe Designs, Scott Gilbride Architect, Dansky Handcrafted, and Greg Vendrame Construction. It was recently published twice in Trends Magazine, once seen below, and once in my last blog post. This home is not just beautifully photogenic (and it is), it is quality and style through and through. This home is modern elegance with a mountain view and I thoroughly enjoyed photographing it. The pleasure and honor to be published in Trends because of this home is all mine!
Trends Magazine recently profiled a home I photographed here in Bend, Oregon in Shevlin Commons. With amazing talent such as Kirsti Wolfe Designs, Scott Gilbride Architecture, Greg Vendrame Construction, Dansky Handcrafted, Milo’s Metal Works and Classic Wood Accents, this home shines with modern elegance! (Yes, that was one big shout out to the wonderful crews who made this room possible). I was lucky to be hired as the photographer to capture this room’s overall architecture and appeal with elements such as multiple pocket doors, a captain’s bed, built in custom library, and volcanic metal fireplace. Here is the tearsheet from the magazine.

As an architectural photographer, it’ll never get old to see my images published in an international architectural magazine like Trends Magazine. It just won’t. Not only are my wonderful clients ecstatic that this kitchen won the People’s Choice Award in the Trends Kitchen Design Award, but it’s a great compliment to their work and mine. Hats off to Kirsti Wolfe of Kirsti Wolfe Designs for designing such a beautiful kitchen and getting such wonderful recognition! More published work to come as we were recently published THREE TIMES in Trends!

I was recently hired by the lovely and talented Dana Ward of Lime Design to photograph her new professional headshots. In business, professional headshots are very important. They are sometimes the “first impression” when someone is looking for your service or a professional in your field. They can speak volumes about your personality, and even, the quality of your business. Of course, I am a photographer, so I may be biased as to the importance of one’s photography, but personally, I steer clear of any businessman or woman with a pixelated photo, cropped out of last year’s Hawaiian vacation. (facebook excluded)
For Dana’s headshots, we wanted to photograph her in an environmental portrait style, instead of in the studio, to add some depth and connection to her business. We chose The Loft in downtown Bend as a great location for her. She is one of Central Oregon’s premier home stagers, so having an intimate and warm atmosphere went well in defining her as a professional in her field.
What’s your field or area of expertise? Do your headshots help portray your branding and convey the image you want for your business?
If you still haven’t been to Backporch Coffee Roasters‘ new location, I’m not sure where you’ve been… it’s beautiful. I’m calling it my second home these days, as I love to sip my latte’ while emailing, writing proposal or even blogging. I was hired to photograph images for their advertising collateral, showcasing their snazzy new spot and details such as Ruby, their new baby, the La Marzocco espresso machine. Yes, you heard me, La Marzocco to all you coffee “snobs”… oops…connoisseurs out there.
I wanted to compliment the modern interior of Backporch Coffee with a clean and simple approach to the imagery, which isn’t hard since, let’s face it, that’s pretty much what my photography leans toward anyway. I used mostly all natural lighting for their imagery and focused on clean lines and off-set composition. Here are a few of the images.
