There’s nothing I don’t love about The Brooklyn Home Company. The People? Check! Their Style? Check! The Locations (Brooklyn!)? Check! I only wish they could build and design their spaces even faster than they already do (which is pretty fast) so I could shoot with them more often. Looking for a new home? Go buy one of their newly renovated spaces, now on the market- you’ll be very happy.

I photographed a restored 1850’s farmhouse in Rhinebeck, NY for the most recent issue of Rue Magazine. The shoot was Art Directed & Styled by the so very talented Meagan Camp. After a day & a half of shooting we finished with 25 shots, which was too many for Rue to run- so Meagan & I pitched the story to the blog, Decor8 and an extended version ran on the site. A few days later The New York Times ran an article about the growth of online shelter magazines & featured Rue Magazine in the story, along with an image from our story chosen to represent Rue in the multimedia slideshow. It’s been so exciting to see the story grow & get exposure on multiple sites. Below is the original Rue article, followed by a snapshot of The NY Times slideshow. You can also check out the extended story (with more images!) on Decor8.
My mother always said things happen in threes. She was right. I have three features in the Spring issue of The Home Observer… and one of my shots made the cover! Yahoo! Unfortunately, you can’t get the magazine at a newsstand, so if you don’t subscribe to the NY Observer, check out The Home Observer here. Or if you don’t want to read the articles, you can just look at the pictures below!

Beka & Houston, the young design team behind Shift Design, cater to individuals with a smaller budget (but they won’t turn away big budget jobs either!). I met Beka, Houston, and Luis, their marketing & PR partner, a few years ago on- drumroll please- craigslist! Shooting for them has always been very fulfilling; there’s something refreshing about shooting homes that are a bit more modest. The spaces they design are comfortable & modern yet playful. They have a knack for color & can really make a small space feel open and comfortable. They are also one of the funniest duo’s I know- whenever we shoot together, it’s a bit hard to focus because they just keep me laughing.
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.
