What is Your Favorite Orange County Restaurant?
I can’t narrow it down to just one, so here are five in no particular order: Lola Gaspar, Selanne’s Steak Tavern, Matador Cantina, Lillie’s Q, and Thai By Sushi on Fire. There are so many others, and I really shouldn’t be writing this around lunchtime.
Where Did You Learn How to Photograph Architecture?
I don’t know if I ever really learned to photograph architecture so much as it just came naturally to me. Large, sweeping forms, clean lines, and good design have always appealed to me, and it was really a natural extension of my design interests. I’ve been photographing architecture, mostly focusing on the details in a modern and fine art style, for the last decade or so. Entirely self taught through years of practice with the occasional video and book along the way. If you’d like to know more about my photographic history, take a look at my About Me page.
How Long Does a Photography Session Take?
It really depends on the type of project. If we’re talking real estate photography, a project will take between 1 and 3 hours depending on the size of the home and property. For architectural, interior design, commercial, etc., a project can take anywhere between 4 hours and several days since I can create approximately 8 images in approximately 10 hours during a residential photography session and approximately 6 images in a commercial photography session.
