Umpqua Bank San Francisco Store

umpqua-sf1 Some images from Umpqua Bank's shiny new flagship store in the heart of San Francisco's financial district that I photographed a few weeks ago. The shoot was definitely a challenge as there was a lot of hype and excitement surrounding the opening of the bank so the place was packed with people. Luckily we had a full crew on hand (2 models, makeup, wardrobe, producer, art director) so that we had some amount of control over who was in the shot and when. Even so, most of the photographs are composites of a single scene since it was nearly impossible to shoot a single frame without a person somewhere in the shot.


Umpqua Bank really pulled out all the stops for this location. Cool murals, huge touchscreens, iPads, iMacs, gourmet coffee and private meeting rooms that anyone can sign up to use regardless if they're an Umpqua client or not.
