I was commissioned by the Renaissance Hotel Group to photograph their Stanford Court Property in San Francisco recently and was offered the chance to photograph an event they would be hosting at the same time with Los Angeles singer/songwriter Angel Taylor.
Of course I said yes and jumped at the opportunity to photograph the event as well. I was unfamiliar with Angel's music prior to hearing her live at the event, but instantly fell in love with her soulful voice and playful stage presence.
The architectural images below are quite unique in that the art director for this shoot asked for all of the images to be taken with only natural light. Lending it's self to an almost editorial fashion rather than your typical perfectly lit, almost sterile and staged photos were used to seeing of high end hospitality projects.
This was a nice departure from the traditional way of shooting interiors and allowed us to capture much more variety and cover a lot more ground in a day of shooting. Here are a few photos from our shoot, enjoy!
