Bar Napkin Productions: AvAir

Nationally recognized as one of the fastest rising, top 100 hospitality design leaders, Bar Napkin Productions reached out to partner on capturing this interior design gem. AvAir commissioned BNP to create a working space for its new 91,000 sqft facility that speaks directly to the core of aviation and we believe the results are undeniably impressive.  

Macerich Corporation: Fashion Centers

This year we traveled far and wide to capture a number fashion retail centers for the Macerich Corporation. Each location held various needs with an emphasis to not only capture the architecture interiors and exteriors of each center but also its local lifestyle. Here's a snap shot of work that took us to San Francisco, Santa Monica, Los Angeles, Boulder, Chicago, Lubbock, D.C. and New York.

Grubstak Architecture

GRUBSTAK is owned and operated by a couple of local guys who have a passion for food and customer service. Our owner, Colton Grubb, (which may or may not be where our GRUBSTAK name originated) is a third-generation Arizonan and businessman. The grandson of Valley automotive icon Lou Grubb and son of entrepreneur and partner Dan Grubb, the family tradition of commitment to integrity and community continues with Colton. The food concept is fun and creative with the architecture being right in line to its menu. We enjoyed working with the Grub team and look forward to watching this brand grow.  


Preston's Steakhouse Part 2.

Back in April we captured a great series of interiors and an exterior for the newly open restaurant and second concept for Chef Charles Schwerd. With great response, Prestons has included private dining rooms and expanded other areas of dining. We can't decide which one of these is our favorite. Enjoy and thank you Chef. 


Residential Interiors

The approach to the spaces and places we shoot is quite simply this; we aim to create the most appropriate visual interpretation of the space itself. We capture a broad range of spaces from residential to commercial and strive to produce a photographic representation that describes each locations attributes and speaks to it’s unique characteristics. Enjoy this recent project series.

Kona Grill: Houston, Texas

May was a great month for us with a very noteworthy client project for Kona Grill. Kona's headquarters are in Arizona but a special project took us all out to Houston to shoot interiors for their new Woodlands location.  A beautiful and vibrant restaurant design and as always, a pleasure to work with the Kona team. Thank you!

Preston's Steakhouse

Preston's opened their doors late March - happy to partner once again with Chef Charles Schwerd on this new concept. He has created a very special menu and restaurant environment located at the Citadel in Scottsdale, AZ.  We're looking forward to hearing about his future success and having dinner very soon - Thank you Chef!

Original ChopShop Co.

In February we worked with Scottsdale based Original ChopShop Co. to capture a large series of interiors, exteriors and environments for its three locations: Tempe, Scottsdale and the recently opened Chandler location. We were faced with the challenge of long store hours and capturing a mix of environments with and without customers. Our 3 day shoot consisted of early morning productions paired with late night shooting. All three locations had their own uniqueness and vibe to them with still maintaining consistent service and great quality to their busy locations. We're looking forward to shooting more locations as the Original ChopShop Co continues to grow. Big thanks to the ChopShop and their management, see you soon!  

Portland City Views

This August took us back to the Pacific Northwest region and into Portland for a great 5 days of commissioned photography for a restaurant landmark and its notable interior views, Portland City Grill. The infamous chefs table and Jefferson room included these 2 beauty shots. We had an amazing time in Portland and can't wait to be back.
