Congratulations to CTA Architects for winning an American Institute of Architects Citation Award for the Thompson Lake House in Eagle, Idaho. I was honored to be hired to photograph their design and their team is stellar to work with.
Creating an image library for Shore Lodge has necessitated some early morning shoots. This example is a personal favorite and one of their most widely used images. For a shot like this you have to get up before dawn to meet the perfect moment, capturing the best light for highlighting interior as well as exterior details.
The Cutwater opened at Shore Lodge on June 16th, after months of remodeling. Nestled at the waterfront of Payette Lake in McCall, Idaho, Shore Lodge was rated the 3rd Best Resort in the West 2016 by Condé Nast Traveler. The new restaurant, bar and patio open right onto the lake, making for a perfect summer experience!
Brian is a creative powerhouse with his restaurant Saint Lawrence Gridiron, serving customers the most delicious brisket sandwiches, pulled pork with mustard sauce, grilled bison and bones & toast. I'm not actually sure what bones & toast is, but I do know that in addition to being a wonderful chef, Brian is also an amazing architect. I was honored to create a portrait for him to reflect his unique creative vision.
