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.

Getting it Done with The Works

It’s been pretty busy summer here at LB Photo. Some great editorial work is coming out soon, but in the meantime I thought I’d recap some recent commercial work.

The Works is an amazing contractor and remodeler based in Portland, OR. They’ve been responsible for making some of the wonderful glamourous interiors designed by Jessica Helgerson come to life.  They recently hired me to shoot some of their own work and it was a pleasure to photograph. Here are some of my favorite shots from two shoots we did this summer.
