Interior shots from my Petoskey trip to the Inn at Bay Harbor: Vintage Chophouse | Wine Bar, the Sagamore Room, and the lobby!

Last month on my birthday, I drove up to Petoskey to photograph the Inn at Bay Harbor! We started the day off working on some interior photos. Near the end of our interiors shot list, I glanced out the window and noticed a huge swath of gray clouds filling up the sky over the bay, so I grabbed these exteriors of the hotel and cottages as quickly as I could before it was too late!

Last month, I photographed the brand-new mixed-use Warner Building (aka 180 E. Water Street) in downtown Kalamazoo to capture portions of the building’s facade cladded with a design surface material called Dekton, which is produced by Cosentino, a countertop/flooring/facade company out of Spain. Curiously, this is the second Spain-based facade cladding panel manufacturer that has reached out to me this year to photograph their work here in Michigan!

On this day in 2012, I did my first ever paid photography gig. It was at a car dealership in Greenville, MI, and I had been living in Grand Rapids for about four months. I wasn’t even using cell phone navigation at that point, but still writing down driving directions. 10 years later, I am still at it! With me at nearly all of my 2,200+ shoots over the last decade has been my trusty Manfrotto tripod, Canon 6D, and VW Golf TDI, which has traveled over 137,000 miles to and from jobs.
