We just completed a great two part project for Perkins & Will in Washington DC. The first part is a new learning center pavilion and the other is a set of remodeled and repurposed townhouses. Here is Part 1. Enjoy.
Saint John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic church is nestled among the trees in the catskill mountains located in upstate New York. Working in the traditional timber block work style of the Ukrainian Carpathian Mountain highlanders, construction began in the early 1960's using cedar logs imported from British Columbia. Five structures in total exist on the church grounds including the belfry, entry gate, parish hall, and parsonage. The bell tower houses a 2000 pound bell from Italy and a second one from Holland. The detail of the design and construction and the beauty of it's surroundings make this church a pleasure to behold.
One of Charleston SC's most beautiful boutique hotels is the Planters Inn. We photographed this charming inn nearly 8 years ago and were honored to be asked to shoot it again when they completed their recent renovation. Planters is a member of the ultra-luxurious Relais & Chateaux hotel group. It was fantastic working with the Planters team again and we look forward to more opportunities to do so.
We recently made a trip to the beautiful city of Charleston SC to shoot for one of our favorite returning clients, The Francis Marion Hotel. The Francis Marion has just redone their ballrooms. Here's a taste.
We recently completed a fantastic project photographing the Firekeepers Casino Hotel in Battle Creek, Michigan. It took a full week to photograph and hotel staff were extremely helpful and a lot of fun to work with. We love doing big projects like these. We'll roll out images from the project over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more, and let us know what you think.
Architect Frank Gehry is famous for his unique brand of architecture, often comprised of flowing and twisting sheets of metal on a building's façade. The Peter B. Lewis Building at the Weatherhead School of Management in Cleveland Ohio is a great example. It mixes Gehry's signature metal with more traditional brick and is eye catching from every angle.
Sometimes to get the right point of view for an exterior shot we need to get ourselves up in the air. On this shoot for Diamond Beach Resort we rented a cherry picker (also called a boom lift) to get up above the pools. This bird's eye view gives us the best angle of the resort. Don't worry, it was a little sturdier than it looks.
