Here’s another project by Merike of Kodu Design. I have documented a lot of her work in the past and am always impressed.

I recently spent a couple of days in the deep south (well, Tsawwassen and White Rock) shooting a couple of projects for Armadio Kitchen and Bath. We were in two beautiful homes there, and shot the kitchen, master bath and family room in each.
Bulthaup is a German company with a reputation for manufacturing some of the highest quality kitchens in the world. I had the opportunity the other day to shoot this Bulthaup kitchen in a spacious West Vancouver home. I will be shooting more of these beautiful kitchens in the months to come.
Just completed another series of interior photos for Kitchen Art Design: four houses in two days. I really enjoy these sessions, since I can spend a lot more time setting up the lighting and composition for each image. Some of the more challenging setups can take up to an hour, such as a lot of dark-grained wood against light coloured walls or bright windows. And on top of the setup and shooting time, there are hours of editing to be done. Some of the images are a blend of dozens of individual frames. Once again, the work done by KAD is just amazing.
I just completed this small shoot for Bayside Cabinets. They did an amazing job of designing this kitchen to maximize counter space in a very small area. We didn’t have a lot of room to work in, and the white tiles were very bright against the dark wood cabinets, making it difficult to get a good exposure of all the elements. It took all of my lights, and some serious Photoshop work to get the final result. Bayside needed some high resolution photos, as this kitchen will be entered in a national design competition. Good luck Tod, and thanks to Ambient Design for the great staging!
Just completed another shoot for Kitchen Art. Despite the challenges of shooting such dark colours, I love doing this kind of work. I’m not confined to a standard 4:3 ratio horizontal image, and can spend as much time setting up the lighting as I need – in this case, up to an hour for each image. But the results are worth every minute, and the workmanship on these cabinets is superb.
That’s the name of this Vancouver company that makes these fabulous custom kitchens. We spent a day staging and shooting several of their kitchen and bathroom cabinetry last week. It’s always a challenge to bring out the texture and patterns in dark wood, doubly so when there is a bright sun beaming in nearby windows. But we pulled it off, and got some terrific images for the client, and ourselves. Staging was done by Sylvie Wetherup of Ambient Design.
