Nest Architecture + Design

In my line of work we get to visit many great spaces while photographing architecture. But it is not often that we get to have a look at an architect's personal residence. This fall we had just that opportunity while photographing the home of Architect Darren Commerford of Nest Architecture + Design. It was great to see him apply his design sensibilities without the constraints of satisfying anyone's needs and preferences other than his own. We loved the home and the elements Darren incorporated into the design. The large window in the living room, coupled with a Manu Nest hanging chair made it the perfect spot to spend some leisurely time reading or enjoying the evening light.

We really enjoyed collaborating with Darren and look forward to seeing future projects he may have in store for us.

Old Port Magazine - Winter Cover

Since its launch this year, we have had the pleasure of collaborating with Old Port Magazine in creating their cover images. From the beginning we have created images that wrap around from front to back cover which makes the creative process that much more interesting to us since we have to make sure everything will layout as expected. It provides the opportunity to work on two canvases in one if you will. Even-though we are photographing both covers in a single frame we have to make sure that the front and back cover work well almost as independent images. So much fun!

I had a great time shooting and would like to thank Jen DeRose Managing Editor of Old Port Magazine for art directing the shoot. I was also happy that we were able to include Central Provisions one of my new favorite restaurants in the cover image and Vignola on the back cover, not to mention one of my favorite streets in the Old Port.
