I am a fan of beer, so it’s always a joy to be able to shoot in a brewery, especially one that I have visited for fun - The Other Half Brewing Company. In a not-so-busy area of Gowanus, the brewery was teeming with people when I visited it on a sunny Saturday. The space has various spaces that can be rented for events and they all need photos, some of which you’ll find below.
I first encountered Parts & Labor when I was in Nashville and passing through the Thompson Hotel and I was in such awe of their design - a refined craftsman feeling with a hyper-modern touch. It was gorgeous and I was so fortunate to receive the assignment to shoot Leonelli, which I soon learned was designed by the P&L team. You can see here how it very much carries that wonderfully idiosyncratic aesthetic.
As a photographer, there are some jobs that are fulfilling, some that are career-affirming, and some that are unforgettable. This job was all three of those. As a big fan of eating, and eating well, I couldn't believe my eyes when I got the e-mail about shooting the NYC opening of L'Atelier De Joel Robuchon - nor could I even comprehend when the restaurant asked me to come on for the whole week of the opening, after initially being hired by Eater for a quick one-off shoot.
To top it off, this photo that I took above then found itself in a slew of solid publications including, Architectural Digest, Food & Wine, Men's Health and plenty more. Here are a few more of my favorite interior shots from my time at L'Atelier.
