Here’s a really fun shoot I did back in October at Grand Rapids Community College’s Secchia Institute for Culinary Education. Audio-visual and acoustics integration company, Global USS, out of Toronto contacted me to photograph this unique project designed by Progressive AE and ABD Engineering & Design at GRCC’s new Secchia Piazza. The focus of attention was on the multicolored sky-dome fitted with translucent DeAmp sound absorber panels—a fitting addition to the city’s skyline to accompany McKay Tower’s iconic lighted dome. Many thanks to build partner, Granger Construction, who was very helpful in coordinating the shoot!
Some behind-the-scenes clips from a shoot I did last fall at Grand Rapids Community College’s new Secchia Piazza. Photos from the shoot to come in my next post!
One of my favorite projects of 2022 was going to Seattle to photograph NOLAN and NORA student apartments next to the University of Washington with my friends at Kelle Contine Interior Design! On this trip, I perfected my flight travel gear-packing technique, managing to fit everything into my carry-on and personal item by disassembling my tripod, using only small flashes and ultra-compact collapsible light stands, and packing just a good ol’ bedsheet instead of an unmbrella or soft box!
Exactly 1 year ago, I photographed the home of Liz Marie Galvan (lizmarieblog.com), whose fireplace mantel made it on the cover of this year’s holiday issue of Flea Market Decor! Also in this issue is another Michigan home I photographed just 4 days prior with Holly Blain (rusticwildarrow.com)!
Yet another addition to the Amway Grand Plaza hotel lobby that I photographed with AHC Hospitality, right next door to the Grand Kids store I shot a couple months prior! This time, it’s the Right Bank Wine Selections wine shop. And as is tradition in the Amway lobby, here’s a behind-the-scenes shot of me blocking distracting reflections from the store sign.
Here’s a shoot I did back in August with Kelle Contine Interior Design (Austin, TX) at Hannah Lofts & Townhomes in East Lansing right next to the campus of Michigan State University!
Two magazine covers I’ve had out on newsstands this fall/holiday season:  American Farmhouse Style featuring the home of Corine Mapes (@junk_gems) and  Flea Market Decor featuring both Liz Marie Galvan (@lizmariegalvan) and Holly Blain (@rusticwildarrow)!
A couple more autumn exteriors from last month—these ones of a home in Union Pier on the shores of Lake Michigan with Kristine Kay Interiors and Meiste Homes!
One of the last few exterior shoots I slipped in this fall before the snow started flying—the new Intandem Credit Union in Cedar Springs for McGraw Construction!
