New Year, New Look

Happy 2014 everyone!  I finally decided that it was time to put some energy into my branding.  Rather than designing everything myself as I've done in the past, I hired my friend Tony Tran to design this logo for me.

The triangle is a play on the "play" button (a little expected, I know), but I really like how it feels both structured and organic, with the geometric lines countered with the shades of blue.  I think it's a great representation of my style.   

Matching website, and reel (my first one!) coming soon...

W Wear Wednesdays

My latest video for W Seattle is live!  This one is a promo for their Wear Wednesdays Fashion Social events that they hold monthly.  This month they featured designer Carole McClellan.

It was the perfect opportunity to try out my 360 degree panning timelapse camera  (AKA a GoPro stuck to an Ikea Kitchen Timer).  Here's a photo of it sitting by the fireplace (this shot is at 00:10 in the video), from Ilya's Photography

And here's Alex Berry (another talented Capitol Hill based videographer) guarding it for me in the other spot we had it set up, this shot is in there briefly, at 1:46.

W Seattle Architecture Tour

I'm really excited to show off my first video for a new client, The W Seattle hotel.  A big thank you to Lissa Gruman of Gruman & Nicoll who pulled the whole project together.  Here's a bit of background from their blog post on the video;

W Seattle has one of the most impressive urban chic interiors in the city. That’s not just our opinion, it’s that of the International Restaurant and Bar Design Awards, which recently named W Seattle’s Living Room and bar as the best designed bar in the Americas.

It makes my job a lot easier shooting in a place like W, where everything is so well designed and photogenic to begin with.  I love how the chess board looks with the light coming through it in Jeff's interview; not every hotel would have a chess board like that just sitting in their rooms waiting to be used as a prop! 

Also thanks to Rachel Gallaher of Gray Magazine who did a great job in her first hosting gig, and Jeff Kovel of Skylab Architecture for going above and beyond with the set design ;)
