07 Nov VSA by Brininstool + Lynch
We’ve finally had a chance to return to the offices of VSA, a Brininstool + Lynch project to do some additional images now that the space is occupied. I frequently shoot interiors with and without people, but being able to handle this assignment in both fashions has taught me a lot about the process. It was no surprise to me that I loved the fully refined images from the pre-move-in shoot. I find them to be clean, uncluttered and lit in a way that renders spatial relations just not possible with an occupied space.
When we returned, though, I found it really stimulating to allow myself to interact more spontaneously with the staff as well as the architecture. We lit much less, I composed the shots around the people, allowing the design to serve as context with an approach that strove to show how the architecture enabled collaboration, communication and creativity rather than standing in the way of them.
I’m really happy with both approaches to the project, and while I find them distinctly different, I believe that they both have immense value for the client.
