The Bullitt Center is the greenest commercial building in the world, planting Seattle in the forefront of the green building movement. The Bullitt Center is a commercial office building at the edge of the Central District, Seattle. It was officially opened on Earth Day, April 22, 2013, and was designed to be the greenest commercial building in the world when completed. It was built by the Bullitt Foundation, a non-profit group based in Seattle that focuses on environmental issues. The foundation is a tenant, occupying half of one floor in the six story building, with additional commercial tenants occupying the rest of the building.

One of the features of the building is the ceiling fans. they were provided by a Kentucky based corporation that goes by the name Big Ass Fans. Here is how they look in the interiors of the Bullitt Center.

Wallpaper

Custom Wallpaper designer
I had a recent assignment from a company in Los Angeles that designes and markets custom wallpaper. Needing some pictures for marketing they assigned me to make some images. One of their clients was located  here in Seattle and they agreed to allow me access for a few pictures. This one below and above in the portrait of Trae was one of my favorite designs.

Interior design with custom wallpaper

I just found out that the July/August issue of  Seattle Homes & Lifestyles Magazine is running my architectural photography of the Madrona Modern home I photographed for Seattle interior designer Robin Chell of Robin Chell Design and  architects David Bennett and Kim Lavacot of Bennett Lavacot Architecture. In fact they have chosen the above picture for the cover of the magazine. It was a beautiful and sophisticated house to photograph with a quiet, simple elegance.

I had an another assignment with Seattle interior designer Robin Chell of Robin Chell Design, to photograph some of her work at a number of Condo and apartment buildings in Bellevue and Redmond. This was taken in a lobby of an apartment building in Bellevue, Washington. Very elegant and clean design I would characterize Robin’s design at work here.

I had the chance to again work with Seattle interior designer Robin Chell of Robin Chell Design, this time photographing a lobby of an apartment building in Redmond, Washington. It was a difficult space to shoot. It had a compact floor plan but extended up three stories. In the photo here I resorted to shooting a number of vertical exposures and then stitching them together in photoshop into one photo.
The barrel distortion was inevitable but I like the way it shows the space without resorting to a fisheye lens.

I was assigned to make an environmental portrait of Seattle real estate agent Jan Sewell who also runs a successful staging business for other real estate agents recently for a magazine piece about her beautiful home in Madison Park. Her place is like a museum with incredible art on all the walls and sculpture scattered all around the place. She does decorate homes for a living after all, so it is no surprise her place is drop dead gorgeous. Making a portrait of her was more of a challenge as she like a fair number of people do not like to have their picture made. I can not tell you how many times I hear from subjects the” I can’t take a good picture.” and I respond that not to worry, I would be taking the pictures and they should just relax. That is what Jan did and all involved were happy with the results.

Portrait Of A Chair

October 19th, 2009

Chair-V8

I had to photograph a chair for a furniture designer and importer for a marketing campaign and decided to approach it much the same way I would approach making a portrait of a person. I wanted to show off its best side and have some of its personality come through. Both the client and I were happy with the resulting picture.
