AC Hotel Chicago

We had the pleasure of working with Marcus Hotels and Marriott while shooting the new AC Hotel in Chicago.  Being a former resident of Chicago I love any opportunity to get back there and see my old stomping grounds and hang out with friends and family.  This is our second AC Hotel by Marriott that we've photographed and we can't wait to do more!

A Dazzler in Brooklyn

Brooklyn has a fantastic new hotel called the Dazzler.  It's the first American hotel by an Argentinian company called Fën Hoteles.  You'd never guess that we were shooting mid construction with dust everywhere and fire alarm tests going off every 3 minutes. FEN1513-BK_Dazzler_King_03 wip1

Rittenhouse Square

We just completed a really cool project with Gregory Augustine of August Interiors.  This apartment in Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square neighborhood takes up the entire floor with windows on every side letting in incredible natural light which we were more than happy to work with.

New Lonny Magazine shoot by Attic Fire

We had the pleasure yet again for shooting for one of our favorite magazines, Lonny.  For them we spent the afternoon with Matt Carollo, of Jayson Home, in his Chicago apartment photographing his fantastically designed space one bedroom.  See the photos and read the article here. 8fzmPVe1jzNx t2tL1cFRKnEx


Moody Gardens

Here are some shots from a shoot we just finished in Galveston Texas at one of our favorite resorts, Moody Gardens.  It was great to get out of the cold and down to the gulf coast.  Moody Gardens is a unique resort with its own aquarium and rainforest held inside of huge pyramids.  If you're ever down near Galveston check it out.

DC Monuments

We've been in Washington DC several times this year for shoots.  We kept noticing that the Washington Monument is being repaired and is covered with scaffold.  Strangely, it actually looks even cooler this way, especially when lit up at night.  So on our last trip to DC we decided we had to photograph it, knowing that it may never look like this again.  While we were at it we decided to photograph some other well known monuments (the Capitol Building, the Jefferson Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial).  We shot all of them at twilight.  To make the Lincoln Memorial a little different we shot it from the back side.  There was a delivery van parked in front which at first we were disappointed about, but in the end we think it makes the shot unique and adds a little bit of fun to it.  We hope you all enjoy the series.

GW Law Townhouses

As part of a new section of George Washington University School of Law in DC, the architects at Perkins & Will were able to convert 3 old townhouses into a new learning space.  The original facades of the 3 houses were kept in tact, but inside all were converted into a single large building with many lecture rooms.  There was also a great modern addition added to the back of the building, giving a wonderful juxtaposition between old and new.
