Cebu Bar & Bistro - Interiors

It's funny how one thing leads to another. I photographed the Mid-Century Residence for my cabinet client Imperia. Around the same time the homeowner was in the middle of planning to take photos of his restaurant. He saw my images and said "we need this guy." So we talked through everything that they needed and it was a full shoot of both the space and the menu. The partners have owned this restaurant for 16 years and it's their baby, and they'd never had professional pictures made of it. It was exciting to be entrusted with showing off the place they'd put so many years into. The shoot took place over three days:

1. Interiors
2. Food
3. Cocktails, Interior Details, and an exterior twilight. We added on some brunch dishes, too.

Here are the images produced from day one, along with some of the details and the exterior from day three.

The Jefferson, an overview.

I first met LPC when I toured this building with them several years ago when they just bought it. It was right next door to the Nooklyn Bushwick office and I came along as part of Nooklyn to take some 'before' pictures of the space. Two years later all the renovations were nearing completion and they were ready for full-scale professional photography, so they reached out to me.

LPC had a vision for what businesses would most benefit from these spaces, so rather than just photographing the space vacant, we collaborated on making the spaces appear fully functional and lived in. We staged each space with a compliment of desks and I brought in interior stylist Katherine Hammond to bring some unique life to each space we'd be capturing.

This is the biggest project I've worked on to date, and it was also the most exciting, the most fun, and without a doubt the most challenging. It was a great experience and I'm looking forward to doing several more like it.

Expect to see more posts detailing how the shoot was done, with breakdowns of how several of the photos were made.
