Earlier this year,I did a really fun shoot with my client Cogent Legal, making environmental portraits of the principals, Morgan Smith and Sarah Smith, and the staff.

And last July, I got to do it again, this time with Appel Law Firm, which specializes in working with the Ironworker’s union. Why they don’t call themselves High Iron Legal, I’ll never know….#coolnames

Appel launched their new website this week, and it’s great to see my work in the final product. Here’s a few more. Thanks to John, Mike, and Thomas for a great project!

Mid-Century Modern, Revised: Leslie Arnold Architect

I was really pleased to get to shoot this updated mid-century in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood (my favorite ‘hood in SF) a few weeks ago. Architect Leslie Arnold and General Contractor Steve Altman retained the classic lines and character of the space but created a light airy feeling that seems totally up-to-date.

We had planned to wrap the shoot around 5:00pm, but after seeing the private courtyard above I knew that it simply HAD to be a twilight photo. We spent the next couple of hours setting this up. There’s some added light pretty much everywhere, inside and outside, which kept me and Alan pretty busy. As the time drew near, we sketched out where we wanted our models (Leslie, and the homeowners, who are both in the design/architecture field themselves). Then came the patient waiting, then the frantic last-minute tweaking….until voila! The perfect moment.

Here’s a few more from this shoot. Enjoy!
