McCutcheon Construction Wins Contest, Published in Women’s Day K and B


It was almost 10 months ago that I shot a spectacular kitchen and bath remodel in Oakland California for McCutcheon Construction. It was a great project and I got to work with Rochelle Silberman, (then) the head designer at McCutcheon. Rochelle was very hands-on during the construction and knew the project literally inside and out. We made some terrific photos that day, and McCutcheon went on to win 5th place with my photos in the CaesarStone Kitchen Design contest. The image above was designed with a print ad in mind, with plenty of space for text in the upper right corner.

The kitchen was completely re-designed by Rochelle, moving appliances and replacing everything from floor to ceiling. Locally made bamboo cabinets were matched with a linear-patterned glass tile backsplash. The warm-toned horizontal lines were broken only by the clean white of the CaesarStone countertop. Lots of attention to detail here, with electrical outlets hidden in the underside of the cabinets to preserve the unbroken lines of the backsplash, some snazzy cabinetry design, and flawless transitions from one material to another.

Following the contest win, the project was published in Women’s Day Kitchen and Bath, as part of a before-and-after “Style Updates” article.

Congrats to McCutcheon, and below are a couple more images from the project!

  1. Congratulations! This is awesome!

    ps: The “yay!” tag is awesome. I think it’s the exclamation mark that cracks me up.

  2. Wow, Scott… congratulations!
    Your photos are gorgeous and the kitchen design is stunning. It must have been a great time to shoot it.
    I LOVE the even, bright tones in the walls and ceilings that I see throughout your work.

  3. Scott – fabulous. Can you explain how you control hotspots on ceilings and walls that were close to the speedlights? And how did you shoot/balance the color with strobe and tungten spots?

    Loved how you dropped the flash inside the pullout plate rack. Great touch.
