It’s all About the Details…..

Every year our website undergoes a proper refresh with updated images from a variety of projects.  It can be difficult to edit down the images from a years worth of work, and there are always images that were great but had to be eliminated.  A majority of our work is focused on larger compositions that show the overall space of a room, but often times its the details that really matter.   We noticed there were details shots that never made the cut because there wasn’t a proper category anywhere on the website.  With so many images in our catalog it was time to dedicate a portion of the website to featuring these details.  Hope you enjoy!

Trafford – CD Photo Shoot

Trafford – CD Photo Shoot

We love shooting portraits, so when Chris Trafford asked us if we wanted to shoot the imagery for his new album we were totally on board.   We’ve worked with Chris in the past on a few aerial projects but this was the first time he was in front of the camera.  This guys is chalk full of ideas and concepts and had a pretty clear vision for exactly the type of cover he wanted to create.   The concept for the cover was based around the lyrics of the song (and album title) “Rebel For Hire” which can be heard here.  Pick up a copy at Bull Moose or on iTunes, its good stuff!!

Filming Above London

Filming Above London

Very excited to share a small sample of our trip filming above London.  Most of our time was spent filming interviews from various locations around the city.  Along with workplace interviews we also captured video from a nearby rooftop overlooking an active construction site.  Hard hats required!!  Its interesting to see heavy duty construction equipment that typical moves very slow come to life when captured as a time lapse.  There is a beauty in watching this machinery move in such fluid way, its almost like a choreographed dance routine.

We should have more timelapse to follow once we return back to the studio.  Stay tuned!

New Work for Thomas Moser

New Work for Thomas Moser

We recently finished another photo shoot for Thomas Moser that included some of their newest products.  We traveled down to their DC showroom and spent the day moving around and staging furniture.  The beauty of photographing in their showroom is the abundance of natural light that pours in through a series of large windows.  All we needed to do was frame up the composition and sprinkle in a little bit of fill light.   Post production involved a lot of cleanup (especially the floor), color/contrast and sharpening.  Its easy to make these images look great when you’re working with such a beautiful product.

Photographing the new Babson College Park Manor West Building by Sasaki Associates

Babson College |  Park Manor West Building | Sasaki Associates

Earlier this summer we had the opportunity to photograph the new Park Manor West Building recently designed by Sasaki Associates.  The building is located at the center of Babson College and is surrounded by a beautifully designed quad that encourages students and faculty to use the outdoor space.  Because the interior of the building had large open areas throughout it made photographing the space easier with all the natural light that was pouring in.  This greatly reduced the need for supplemental lighting.  With students and faculty interacting and using each space we were able to craft images that reflected the design and accessibility of the environment.

Interior Photos | Elements Coffee Shop

Interior Photos |  Elements  |  Caleb Johnson Architects + Builders

Biddeford is going through a bit of a revival and one of the best examples of that is Elements coffee shop in downtown Biddeford, ME.  The space was designed by Caleb Johnson Architects + Builders and is located on Main St. in a formally unoccupied commercial space that sat empty for years.  We spent the day with Caleb and his team capturing 8-10 interior photos that not only featured the overall cafe but also the details found throughout the space.  Below are just a few of the compositions from the shoot.

If you’re looking for really good coffee be sure to stop by and get one of their pour overs, its the best in town.

Interior Photography: Unispace and The Salvation Army

Interior Photography: Unispace and The Salvation Army

We just finalized the images from The Salvation Army office interior that we photographed a few weeks back in San Francisco, CA for Unispace.  The scope of the shoot was to capture 8-10 compositions that not only highlighted the workspace as a whole but also the attention to detail that went into every aspect of the design.  Notice the throwback images from the early days of The Salvation Army.

It it always exciting when we get the opportunity to work with Unispace as they are one of the leading interior design firms and their work is nothing short of world class.

On Assignment: AE Ceramics

On Assignment: AE Ceramics

Back in March we had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with Alison Evans of AE Ceramics in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.  We were on assignment for Design New England to photograph Alison’s recently opened gallery (AE Home) in Boothbay, as well as capture a portrait of her working on one of her signature pieces.  Its great to photograph someone who is so passionate about their craft because it translates into a very natural authentic portrait.   Along with the still images we also put together a short video of Alison explaining her craft as she presses together a large oyster coffee table bowl.
