Some Houses We Like

Aside from trying to finish work on our San Francisco pictorial book, we have been actively shooting houses in and around Northern California for a variety of architects, interior designers and construction firms. Surprisingly, a handful of new firms have hired us to shoot a variety of building types, each with their unique style and challenges.  We did a modern farmhouse in Palo Alto for FGY Architects, a modernist spec house for Swatt Miers Architects, a complete rebuild of a neo-classical historic house in Alameda for Copper Creek Builders and an exciting modular house in Orinda for James Rogers Construction and Sage Modern Architects.  In no special order here is a quick selection of the work that we have done recently.

San Francisco Secrets: A Book About San Franciscos Hidden Beauty and Bravado
For the last nine months we have been slowly aggregating thousands of images of life in San Francisco in all its beauty and zaniness. The book is called San Francisco Secrets and it is being published as part of a series by Images Publishing of Australia. More than most urban centers in the United States, the city is a nexus of commerce, art, frivolity and fun.  From street fairs to hidden architectural gems to out of the way cuisine, we have tried to turn over many stones.  The city is a crazy quilt of period architecture, creative food, lively arts and people trying their damndest to live life to the fullest.  Since we are first and foremost photographers, here is a very random sample of what has made it to our cameras in the past six months.
