Entertainer’s Kitchen by Custom Kitchens


Here’s a June project I just haven’t had time to post — a great kitchen in Piedmont, California, by my good friends at Custom Kitchens & Baths.



As you can see, we were a little more aggressive than usual with the styling/propping on this one….



CK_FL_small_07I’ve been shooting at a pace I’ve never seen before, so many more projects coming…stay tuned!

Remmies: Part One

The deadline for entry in this years’ Remmies competition was September 7th, which meant that I was a busy guy in early September. For two years running, projects that I photographed have walked away with the Grand Prize in this NorCal NARI event. I’m hoping for a hat trick — and some of the stuff I shot this year should certainly be contenders! See more photos, and a full write-up, after the jump!

A Pair of Covers

Hits the stands this week, I’ve got the cover on Oakland Magazine/Alameda Magazine (same insides, different covers) – the Kitchen Issue.

I shot 4 kitchens over the course of a couple of weeks, and we included models in two of them, anticipating a cover opportunity. Those shots made the cut, and the results are above.  Fun stuff, and excellent material provided by:



Kitchen Remodel by Custom Kitchens, and Bentwood

It’s always a good day when Jerry Wilkins of Custom Kitchens calls me up. I first heard about this project last fall, while I was in Phoenix having lunch with a photographer friend of mine. Jerry called me to tell me that they had won Grand Prize, All Categories in the Norcal Remmies (with my photos!) And he mentioned a massive kitchen remodel that they were doing over the winter. more photos, and some technique, after the jump!

Master Bath by Custom Kitchens

A few weeks ago I was in Alameda, California, shooting a small project with Joy Wilkins of Custom Kitchens. A remodeled master bath, along with a second bathroom, and a fireplace with an adjoining built-in desk, kept us busy for several hours. Some of you will remember the orchids, above, from this post.

The Remmies Are In!

Yeah, Baby!

Back on November 11th,  my lunch was interrupted by a call from Jerry Wilkins, of Custom Kitchens. He was letting me know that he had (the night before) accepted the Grand Prize, All Categories, at the 2011 Remmies with a project I photographed. This marks the second consecutive year that my photographs were part of the presentation that ultimately won Grand Prize — last year it was this project with McCutcheon Construction.

Congratulations to Jerry and the entire team at Custom Kitchens! This was a HUGE project, which was fraught by red tape and countless obstacles – Jerry and the crew perservered and ultimately created a real work of art….Arts & Crafts, actually….that was a pleasure to photograph. This project is now off to the Nationals…which are announced in April. Wish us luck!

Oakland Magazine

A few months ago I shot a beautiful Arts and Crafts remodel on the island of Alameda, in the San Francisco Bay. (You can read about that one HERE, and HERE.) These are also being entered in the 2011 Remmies, so we’ve got our fingers crossed here at Scott Hargis Photo World Headquarters.

This month those photos were published in Oakland Magazine, in an article featuring my client: Custom Kitchens by John Wilkins. I recently shot some more of Custom Kitchens’ work, and Jerry tells me that they’ve got an utterly amazing project coming up before the end of the year…..I can’t wait!

Congrats, Wilkins!
