A Look Back at 2010, Interiors

2010 was notable on several fronts, here at Scott Hargis Photo World Headquarters. I racked up over 60,000 miles while travelling to Spain, Australia (twice), around the US, and Norway.

I shot for a LOT of new clients, and tightened relationships with existing ones. I’ve got a few projects already lined up for 2011 — I can’t wait to get started! Holidays are nice for a while, but I want to shoot.

To everyone who reads this blog — THANKS! Your comments keep this place alive; it gets awfully boring when I’m the only one talking (as I’m often reminded).

Here’s a walk through some of my favorite projects from this year. I owe an enormous Thank You to all of my clients – their talent, skill, and hard work are what create the raw material for my images.

Enjoy the show — and see you next year!

2010 As Seen By My iPhone

Here’s my iPhone retrospective, 2010!

My iPhone continues to be a primary inspiration for me, photographically. It’s almost always with me, and walking around doing street photography and impromptu portraits and abstract art has done as much for me as anything else in terms of developing my eye for light and composition.

My iPhone portfolio (badly in need of updating) continues to be popular with clients, and I have to say I get more pleasure out of curating collections like this one than almost anything else! It’s just the pure, simple joy of photography, with no business concern, no post-processing, no deadlines…..just images.

I love it. Enjoy the show!

And Now For Something Completely Different….

While I make 99% of my living shooting interiors, I also love doing portraits. No, I’m not Dan Winters, or Platon, or Martin Schoeller, and certainly not Gregory Heisler, but I still like doing it, and I’ve worked very hard over the past couple of years to get my headshot skills up to par. Here’s a dozen of my favorites from 2010! Click to see ’em bigger.

McCutcheon Construction Wins Again!

A few months ago I had the pleasure of announcing that this kitchen remodel, which I shot over a year ago for McCutcheon Construction, had won 5th place in the CaesarStone Kitchen Design contest, and was subsequently featured in Women’s Day Kitchen & Bath.

Today, I’m happy to boast that this project has won Grand Prize in the Bay Area Remmies! In addition to Grand Prize, it also took First Prize for Residential Interior (over $100,000).

Jan McCutcheon holds the plaque!

Best part: Feedback from the judges specifically mentioned that the photography was part of what they liked about the project…..aw, shucks, folks! (scuffs feet)

I’m told that we’re now off to the Nationals……judging is in April 2011, I’ll update then!

Here’s a few more from that project. Congrat’s to Mike, Jan, and the team at McCutcheon!

Master Suite by Laura Martin Bovard Interiors

Here’s an example of a Speed Shoot: we had about two hours to produce a half dozen images on three setups…including styling! No problem, though…even Laura’s husband Scott pitched in to hang artwork and hold my Color Target!
