I never watched TV… until we moved to Brooklyn &, thanks to our generous landlords, have free premium cable. Some evenings I find myself on the couch, fixated with the shows on HBO & Showtime. The acting is top notch, the camera work is beautiful, and the story lines are addicting! For the second year, I was hired to shoot the Showtime House and I was so excited to see how different the rooms would be this year as opposed to last year. The Showtime house is a showhouse where the designers are each assigned a different Showtime series as inspiration for their room. Who knew television shows could be so inspirational- I should start watching more TV!
Check out The New York Observer HOME Fall 2010 issue featuring one of my shoots with The Brooklyn Home Co. This was a great space to shoot. Actually, I wouldn’t mind living in it either! Story starts on Page 69.

I was faced with a challenge; capture custom furniture pieces in the spaces they live in & make the photos about the pieces, not the space. This is hard to do when the rooms that the pieces live in are bold and breathtaking. The challenge made it a really fun shoot, and we even managed to fit in a portrait of the talented and beautiful designer, Daun Curry. Daun’s company is called Modern Declaration & the website is coming soon!
Update 11/24/10: The Modern Declaration site is up! Check it out!
