Idaho River House – Winter Edition

March 29th, 2012 § 3 comments § permalink

We had a good stretch of sunny skies for our shoot of a new residence in Idaho for architect George Suyama and interior designer Doug Rasar. While sunny, it was most definitely not warm and as I stood outside in the snow and 6 degree temperatures waiting for the good light I kept myself warm by chanting “thiswillbeworthitthiswillbeworthit…” And it was ;-). I’m looking forward to going back out there for some more shots of the project this Summer once the snow has melted.

Terry Hunziker is Online

Well it’s been a long time coming but Terry Hunziker launched his brand new website this week.

I’m not eloquent enough to describe Terry’s work so instead of me telling you that “it’s totally rad”, you should just go to his website right now and check it out. And it’s not just me that likes his work. Terry has been featured on Architectural Digest’s “AD 100″ list of the world’s top designers and architects for twenty two consecutive years now – that’s every year since the list’s inception in 1990.

To say that Terry has had an influence on my work as an interior design photographer would be a gross understatement. I met Terry when I was first starting out as a professional photographer and his feedback and critiques have been instrumental in the development of my visual style and how I approach not only architecture and interior design photography but photography in general.

Chicago Strollin’

Here are some scenes I came across while searching for good places to eat and drink beer….

Art Institute of Chicago Museum Grand Staircase

The Chicago Way

In Chicago for a few days this week…

Dinner tonight at Rick Bayless’ Frontera Grill: house guacamole, chicken mole enchilada and a champagne margarita = delicious.

Of course Chicago is legendary for its architecture.

So it wasn’t surprising to see this McDonald’s on the stroll downtown…

Donna Livingston on Kalef Alaton’s Influence

Donna Livingston used some of my images in her great blog post about the timelessness of Kalef Alaton’s interiors and his influence on her own interior design work.

Rather than just show a bunch of images of Alaton’s work, she used my images of a project I photographed in 2010 along side the original project images published in Architectural Digest in 1984 to illustrate the timelessness of Alaton’s interiors. And she’s right. As I’ve said before here and here, the only way to decipher the age of great interior design and architecture is to look for stains in the upholstery or the presence of dated fixtures.

Where am I?
