I’m hesitant to label the work I do for MediaStyle as “corporate photography” as their business has never seemed to follow a conventional corporate-commercial flow. Their own website says “We are a progressive public affairs agency. A Social Enterprise making Canada a better place.” And in the almost six years I’ve known and worked with […]
Every Summer the Ottawa architectural, design, and builder community rushes to put the finishing touches on their GOHBA Housing Design Awards submissions. Of course, without the heroic efforts of the interior and architectural photographers who capture the finished project, they’d never be outside of their own neighbourhood. I personally photographed several projects for the Awards […]
Kettleman’s Bagels is an Ottawa institution. Not only is it the only 24-7-365 eatery in town, their bagels are, arguably, the best in the world. Over the past few years, Kettleman’s has gone through a massive makeover. Renovating their iconic Bank street storefront and overhauling their website. I was fortunate enough to be brought in […]
Following up my last interior design photography post featuring Astro Design Centre’s award-winning kitchen’s, I have a lovely modern ensuite bathroom to showcase.
The National Kitchen & Bath Association Ottawa Chapter held their Design awards this past weekend showcasing some of Ottawa’s best work. Two out of two Ottawa kitchen projects I photographed for Astro Design Centre came home with awards.
I wanted to try and space out my interior design & build projects from last year a bit to help showcase some of the amazing interiors that some of my clients have been producing. The team at Grassroots Design & Build were hard at work on some stunning projects, showcasing some fantastic creativity in relatively […]
Before they won People’s Choice at the 2015 GOHBA awards, GreenMark Builders‘ president Mark Kranenburg welcomed Our Homes Magazine into his soon-to-be home for the Winter 2016 edition.
New to my interior photography portfolio this year is Just Basements Ottawa, a company that specializes in (wait for it) basements! I had the pleasure of photographing three of their properties for the GOHBA awards this year for submission into two categories (yes, they compete against themselves). See some more of their work below.
For the third year in a row I was a sponsor at the Greater Ottawa Home Builders Association Housing Design Awards. Of course, I was also the photographer for a number of finalists and, of course, winners. In this post I’ll focus on the residential photography I did for RND Construction and their partners.
I was pleased to see my photography back on the cover of the latest issue of Our Home Magazine this season. It’s a great feeling as an editorial photographer to have your work represent the entire issue. It shows a lot of trust from the publisher and, honestly, is just plain cool to see on […]
Photographing a model home was a first for my interior photography career. While many residential spaces we photograph are still staged, they still have some elements of an existing human presence, something to make it “lived in”. At Minto’s latest development, Mahogany, we worked with their largest offering named “Poplar“. With little to no cleaning […]
It can be funny who you meet at your child’s bus stop in the morning. In my case, a couple whose children go to the same school as mine also happen to be residential builders in Ottawa and had their own custom built infill just down the street. They also needed some proper interior photography […]
How fortuitous that my favourite hair stylist (yes, I get a “fancy” haircut) and one of my favourite interior photography clients came together to design the new Mint Hair Studio. While Grassroots Design hasn’t done a great deal of commercial interiors, I instantly fell in love with this transformed space.
Not all interior photography is a full-on award winning home, quite often it’s a small but important renovation. I know incremental renovations are all I can afford, and a simple update to a bathroom, kitchen, or another important room of your home could be all you need to fall-in love with your space all over […]
I was thrilled to photograph this exciting new project by John Donkin Architect and RND Construction which went on to become a finalist at the Greater Ottawa Home Builders Association (GOHBA) Housing Design Awards in several categories and won the prestigious “Green Custom Home of the Year” award.
The thrill of interior photography is that you often don’t know what you’re going to see inside someone’s home and, as is often the case, you can walk away completely blown away by what you encounter. This was the case for my most recent editorial assignment from Our Homes Magazine, when I walked into the […]
One benefit of working on multiple interior photography projects with the same designer is that you really get a sense of their design, and certain signature elements start to stand out among their body of work. Clawfoot tubs, unique light fixtures, a great sense of colour splashed against neutral colours. Tone, shape, style, they all […]
April was a whirlwind month of mixed interior, commercial, portrait, and editorial photography, with almost daily shoots and tight deadlines. One of my long-time favourite interior design clients, Turnbull Design Consultants, recently had a complete brand makeover with Ottawa-based creative firm Cinnamon Toast. Parallel 45 is the same great team, with a fresh new brand […]
Since starting interior photography for Grassroots Design & Build I’ve been documenting their projects almost weekly. Not every renovation is a full home, in some cases it was just a single bathroom, or a kitchen. The above image is from an older home in the Fisher Park neighbourhood of Ottawa. It was a dark and […]
The spring issue of Our Homes Magazine Ottawa is out, and with it a whole new slew of stylish and custom renovated homes and interior photography. I was surprised when I found out I’d be photographing local restaurateur Ion Aimers’ new (old) home in New Edinburgh – around the corner from his latest food venture […]
My second interior design shoot with Emma from Grassroots Design & Build was another caring project that helped incorporate the age of the home and function of the space with a small three-person family. Like the last shoot, Grassroots stuck with the original space, only removing an obstructing centre unit that kept the kitchen cramped […]
You never know when you’re going to get your next great client. Emma Doucet’s youngest daughter and my youngest son both go to the same daycare. Normally you spend your time making trivial kid-based chit-chat about poop and food and growing out of clothes, but after a year your’e sure to learn something interesting about […]
The latest issue of Our Homes Ottawa is out and again I get to snag the cover with a great custom renovation designed by Shiva Gupta of 7j Design. The great thing working as the interior photographer for this home is that it is a bungalow and everything was all laid out in front of […]
I had the honour this year of serving as the official photograph event sponsor of the 2013 Greater Ottawa Home Builders Association Housing Design Awards (GOHBA Awards, or… GOHBA…A?). What does an official sponsor do? Well, he works his butt off as an event photographer for the night, taking photos of the best builders, architects, […]
