Photographing Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar

Last Week I photographed a new restaurant opening up in Delray Beach on the corner of Federal Hwy and Linton Blvd. called Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar. The interior having an elegant dark wood theme made for great photographs best taken at dusk. The Harvest Grill is a sizeable restaurant with many tables and booths and a long bar. It should do well opening just in time for the season.

Airplane Wing Desk

There's always a new first for photographing people, places or things. The new "Thing" I photographed is a desk made out of an airplane tail wing! I shot it with and without the beveled glass custom made to fit the shape of the airplane tail wing. In the right environment it could look like an art piece.

Well designed Villa Diamante Townhomes in Jupiter

I recently got back from Jupiter FL. where I photographed 2 models, the Cavallo and Turquesa.  Built by Kennedy Homes these well designed Villa Diamante Townhomes have very open floorplans that let in lots of natural light. The smaller Cavallo model has tall ceilings in the living room and the kitchen is located in the center of the house giving it a sense of space throughout.

FEI Conference at The Boca Raton Resort & Club

I just concluded photographing The 2015 FEI Summit Leadership Conference at The Boca Raton Resort and Club taking place on May 17, 18 and 19. The "Boca Hotel" always makes for a beautiful backdrop if you are shooting in the old sections of The Hotel. A majority of my shooting was at The Mizner Center where all the conventions and conferences take place. It's never an easy task to photograph people moving while giving speeches in very low light but that is why they pay me

Photoshoot for New York Designer Doreen Chambers

I just completed an interior photoshoot of a Delray Beach condominium located on A1A for New York Designer Doreen Chambers, http://www.doreenchambers.com/ .Her work is contemporary but has classic infuences as well. You can see repeated structural elements in the furniture to the doors and I really like her subtle use of color and shapes.

Historic Delray Beach home

I recently got the opportunity to photograph a historic Delray Beach home built in 1925. Located on Swinton Ave. in Delray Beach the house was impeccably restored and really maintained the true character of that time period.

Lake Ida Home with incredible Tropical Backyard

A house located in Lake Ida Delray I was hired to photograph has the most incredible tropical backyard I've ever seen. With stone steps several paths meander through an acre of lush trees and tropical plants. Pergolas and tiki huts also make for peaceful places to sit and relax.
