So after going to Arkansas, Dallas, Arkansas again, and Memphis, it was time to get back to work (like how I pimped those blogs? You betcha). Wrapped up a house in the Copperleaf community in Cary for home builder J.P. Swain and shoot of the Courtyard apartments in Chapel Hill for Olive Design + Build. Didn’t have control over time of day like I would’ve preferred with Courtyard, so made the most of it with the windows.
After shooting for M/I last month, I returned to Wood Creek this month for a brief shoot for John Wieland Homes, based out of Atlanta. Took an exterior shot and three interior views of their Donovan model home:
Busy year so far! These are a few shots from a recent real-estate shoot for my friends over at RtownLiving. Definitely a fun kitchen to shoot. They’re having an open house this Friday, March 2 6-9pm at 315 S. Boylan, Raleigh, North Carolina.
Guess that’s my first professional-related blog of the year. Eventually more to come.
Phillip recently completed two residential deck & sunroom additions, the first in suburban neighborhoods of Knightdale:
And the second nestled in the woods in Cary:
Also traveled down to Charleston to shoot some of their civic work, including preservation of several historic buildings, new additions to existing buildings, and new work including:
The Fireproof Building (1826), on the National Register of Historic Places and where the South Carolina Historical Society is headquartered:
A three-story educational center linked to the First Scots Presbyterian Church:
And finally, Grace Episcopal Church (1846), located in the Charleston Historic District, which included multi-million dollar restoration of the original church and several modern additions over the years.
First of all, I want to give a special thanks to Tony Admur for referring me to this gig while I was in Georgia. The assignment was real estate photography to market a 6500 s.f. house inside of Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, Georgia.
When I was practicing architecture full-time, I formerly managed a field office about 20 minutes away from here, and lived in Athens, Georgia for about 15 months – so I was very familiar with this area already. I had a very narrow window in which to shoot and managed to the best of my ability in one day’s time.
Recently completed a major trip through South Carolina and Georgia, both for work and pleasure.
My big stop was in Charleston, South Carolina where I photographed the Chamberlain Residence, conveniently located near downtown. This was a major house and garage addition designed and completed by my old boss Bennett Strahan and former colleague Phillip Jefferson when we were with Strahan Associates. Now that Bennett is with Consensus West Incorporated and Phillips is doing his own thing, they’re now both my clients.
How you like them apples?
I’d describe the project in detail, but that’s not my job anymore, I’m just the dumb photog. So without further ado…
Finally, wanted to thank Peggy and Olin for being such gracious, wonderful hosts while I was in town, they made it incredibly enjoyble and I had fun spending time with both. I’ll get to some of the fun I had in Charleston in a later blog.
