It was during a layover at DFW (on our way home from Acapulco) that I retrieved a voicemail from IA’s Arturo Febry, telling me that I had won the bid to shoot a sizable project they had spent the last 4 years designing. We had scouted it a few months earlier, and though the space was just beginning to flesh itself out, I could already tell that it was going to provide us with exceptional opportunities for photography. I was beginning to wonder if I was actually going to get the shoot when I got that message and as the smile broke across my face, I looked up at our inquisitive server and answered, “Why, yes. I believe I will have another margarita.”
We spent about 5 days making 28 images (plus some variations). I wanted to make sure I really got the most out of this. so on the third day I sent my client and assistant home early so that I could study the space alone. The images I made in those few hours, using only my Nikon and the available light are some of our favorites from the series.
On June 7th, beginning at 5:00 pm I will be hosting the first of ProGear’s Creative Seminar Series. During the evening, I will discuss my approach to architectural photography from both the artistic and technical perspectives. There will be representatives on hand from Arca Swiss, Phase One and Profoto to elaborate upon the equipment that I use on a daily basis.
I hope it will prove an informative and entertaining evening for all in attendance. Registration is free but space is limited. For more information follow this link.
We just returned from a quick trip to Holland, Michigan where we were doing some work with Haworth. Though I’ve shot their chairs for years (beginning with the X-99) always shooting in studio, I had never been up to their facilities. Their building is exceptionally cool and provides a great backdrop for furniture shots. I’ve got to turn around the images in time to make it to press before Neocon, so enough of this blogging and back to the grindstone!
