The photo above was just sent to me by my client Building Lab, along with a note explaining that they won First Prize (Residential, $100k – $250k) in last years “Remmie” awards, with a project I photographed! Congrats to the incredibly talented folks over at BL, especially Stephen Shoup, and Hide Kawato!
The Remmies are the annual NARI contest, but sadly, the San Francisco NARI chapter’s website is pretty sorry, so almost no one knows about the awards or who wins (the last time they updated the awards section was 2010). Note to sfbanari.org: The Internet can be a very powerful tool. You should check it out.
Snarkiness aside, NARI is a good organization and I’m especially pleased to have photographed the First Prize winning project for three consecutive years. I wonder which of my projects this year will be the winner? 😀
Here’s a photo from the Building Lab’s First Prize winning project:
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 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!
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!
