Krown Lab @ Skylab

I’m on a little office kick right now. Earlier this year, Krown Lab hired me photographed the office of Skylab Architecture in Portland, OR. Krown Lab designs and builds high end sliding door hardware right here in Portland. What I like about their product is how minimal and clean it looks. Their iconic designs are also made with quality materials and they function beautifully. If Apple made door hardware, Krown Lab would be it.

The shoot was pretty technical. Metal doesn’t photograph easily because of it’s reflective nature. Sometimes the surface was too hot and sometimes it was too dark. In pretty much all of these shots, I had my assistant hold a large white reflector to create the right highlight on the metal. I then layered all the pieces together over the master shot of the room. A lot of work, but the results are some architectural product installation shots that I’m very proud of.
