Luxe Magazine Cover Feature

2018 has started off great with this amazing cover feature I shot for January’s Pacific Northwest edition of Luxe Interiors + Design. Designed by husband and wife duo Holly Freres (JHL Design) and David Horning (MOA Architecture), this ultra cool coastal getaway was so much fun to shoot. I really admired the contrast of modern architecture and interior design with the natural rugged coastal surroundings. It was very zen and balanced. The whole house felt very cozy and the views stunning. Both Holly and David were there with me to help style the shots and clean the windows (thanks David).

True story: Holly texted me the day she got her copy head over heels that we made the cover. I was so excited for her and very proud to share these spreads with you. The full gallery is available in the WORK section of my website as well.

A Modern Addition in Dwell

 

Well, look at that. My first shoot for Dwell and it’s a 5 page spread. Yet another feather in my editorial cap for what’s been a really busy year for me. This was such a fun shoot and I was really excited to get the assignment last May. Associate Photo Editor Julia Sabot flew me out to Boise, ID to “shoot the whole house” of this modern addition and renovation to a historic home. The project was designed by Portland-based firm Beebe Skidmore.

What I loved about this house is that, from the street, it looks like a classic bungalow and you would have no idea there’s a two story modern addition in the back. A clever trick acheived by building the new space about 6 feet in from the width of the original house. It’s great article and you should pick up a copy of the October issue of Dwell to read more about it and see the photos in print. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as seeing your work printed big in a glossy magazine that you can buy almost anywhere in the country. If you need instant satisfaction, you can read the story online at www.dwell.com/articles/New-Frontiers.html

On a personal note, homeowners Dan and Dana Zuckerman and their family were incredibly hospitable and I really enjoyed meeting them. Photographing someone’s home really gives you a good sense of who they are as people. The Zuckermans were warm, friendly, and inviting just like their beautiful home.

Portland Monthly – Harpoon House

The August 2010 issue of Portland Monthly just came out and I am really excited about this tearsheet from it. This custom built modern home, nicknamed Harpoon House, designed by Matt Kirkpatrick and Katherine Bovee has only 704 square feet of livable space. Shooting was really cool experience because it felt much larger than that. It also made the shot list really short. I think the high ceilings and big windows really helped the space feel open. It’s amazing what you can do with good design.

Matt and Katherine did a fantastic job making the most of their 2500 lot, as well. The house is only 16 feet wide and 28 feet tall and that leaves space for a garden plot and a small yard. And the upstairs bedroom has an outdoor space with a green roof. Smart and eco-friendly. I’ve included an outtake that didn’t run in the magazine after the rest of the tearsheets.
