TEMECULA CREEK INN  It was a real pleasure working with Chef Igor Krichmar for the launch of CORK | FIRE KITCHEN the new restaurant at Temecula Creek Inn.   I do declare, his burger, complete with a fried egg on it, was hands down one of the best I have ever tasted!

Set in a spectacular cove right on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, our shoot for Turtle Bay Resort included shots for their newly remodeled guest rooms, restaurants, spa and meeting spaces. Our team included stylist Margaret Daley, Techies/Assistants Chris Park, Andy Whilhelm and Intern Boston Zach.  We call him BZ.  (yes- 10 days in Hawaii- not a bad internship!) Special thanks to our super model Kim - who actually works at Turtle Bay Resort. Aloha and Mahalo!

LET IT SHINE  Lighting plays such a critical role in creating mood and emotion in a photograph.  For these shots at Island Hotel we spent a full day scouting well in advance of the shoot so we would know exactly the optimum time of day to shoot for maximum impact. If you only knew how many people were standing just outside of frame ready to jump in and move a chair, relight a candle…

ST. REGIS MONARCH BEACH


Spa Gaucin at the St.Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point, CA was in need of an image refresh for their website. Starwood has strict photo guidelines that we would need to adhere to.  All spaces must be represented as a guest would experience when entering a room, no embellishments or props, and the lighting would need to closely resemble the natural ambiance of a room.  I enlisted the help of two photo assistants and stylist Margaret Daley to attend to the details and keep us on schedule.  Margaret and I have worked on several similar shoots over the years and I appreciate her refined sense of place and style. The shoot went smooth and I am thrilled to see the images are now on the St.Regis Monarch Beach and Spa Gaucin websites.
