Mid-Century Residence

There are few things that make for a more exciting photo project than showing up on location to find that the place is already beautifully decorated and filled with sunlight. They had so much nice stuff here that I was really struggling with deciding what to remove to simplify the images. There we so many cool items and SO MANY PLANTS! Every house needs so many more plants. I need more plants. But these homeowners have it down. You should also also know that they found, I said FOUND, the  massive cacti in the living room and stairwell. There was so much more of this beautiful mid-century modern house that I wish we could have gotten to, but our shoot focused on the kitchen and took most of the day. But trust me, the rest of it is just as gorgeous.

Brooklyn Condo

This is another favorite architecture shoot from this year. This place completely blew me away when I stepped inside. I couldn't believe how nice it was. I was here to photograph the kitchen and cabinetry for my client, but I couldn't help to explore the house and take a few extra images after I wrapped up in the kitchen. I'll save those photos from share with you another time. For now, the focus is on the work of Imperia Cabinet on this gorgeous kitchen I wish I could have myself. Sergei (of Imperia) and I really like moody, sexy lighting, so here's another spot where I experimented with making some moody night shots in the middle of the day (because we didn't have access in the evening). It required a lot of black cloth and creative editing, and I'm very happy with the results. I also put small lights inside the cabinets to show off their interior details with some sexy light. The objective is to capture the love a homeowner feels for the kitchen of their dreams.

Also: That corner cabinet swing out arm is fkn brilliant.

Frost Street Residence

This is one of my favorite projects for Imperia Cabinet / Purekitchen. I was absolutely in love with this house the second we walked in. The matte black kitchen is gorgeous and the marble was so beautiful. I also love that the homeowner outfitted the kitchen with matte black pots and pans, too. Really love their style. The whole house was gorgeous, but my focus was on the kitchen and vanities since that's what my client brought me there to photograph. I also experimented with producing day and night photos in a single daytime shoot. So have a peek below at the photos I produced for him of this lovely place.

The below photos were a little of a gag. We were talking about how messy the backyard was outside the window next to the kitchen since it was still under construction. Sergei jokingly told the homeowner "Oh don't worry, Nicholas can put just put the mediterranean out there." So I did. And I actually love it.

And since I had the window masked out, I decided to do something a little more plausible and put one of my NYC skyline images in there.

I'm hoping to go make some more images of this beautiful place once all the construction is done. Looking forward to that in 2018.

Mission Workshop's retail space is beautiful. It's dark and bright at the same time. Lots of exposed natural wood, and those skylights. It blew my mind how many places all over SF have skylights. New York talks about wanting natural light - but SF actually has it. I love it. MW sells lots of great modular and adaptable bags, and a collection of rugged clothing. They even have a little coffee setup in the corner from Bicycle Coffee.
