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.

    Nicely done my friend. Love this magazine, probably one of my favorites. Now that your work is in Dwell I am sure they will launch to the best selling mag on the stands.
