Nob Hill Traditional with Muratore Corp

_large_05

It’s hard to complain when your view of the Transamerica Pyramid is so close you can’t fit the entire tower in the window.  We photographed this traditional high rise condo atop San Francisco’s Nob Hill a few weeks ago, and the images are already up on Muratore’s shiny new website. I love the way Heather prefaces each project with a black-and-white image; I often find myself converting images to B&W while shooting as it helps me focus on the composition and lines, rather than getting distracted by details.

I’m also proud that Muratore’s website is essentially a portfolio of my work; 14 of the 15 projects listed were shot by me!

Here’s a few more from this shoot — enjoy!

(More) Highrise Happiness from Muratore

We wanted to relate the gorgeous art-deco grill covers to the (gorgeous) art-deco Golden Gate Bridge….but the fog did not cooperate! We watched all day and shot this when things were best, but still no bridge… Still: how do you not plant a human being in that chair?! Had to do it! The biggest lighting challenge with this shot was making sure the chrome features of the grill “popped” appropriately, which meant giving them something bright to reflect.

We’ve shot several projects with Muratore this summer, so here’s another; this art-deco inspired condo atop San Francisco’s Nob Hill.

I loved the way the aggressively patterned floor carried through to the grid of the San Francisco streets far below.

Maple burlwood veneer coupled with black granite countertops (and black acrylic cabinets) make for a dramatic yet inviting kitchen.

We couldn’t resist this hallway shot, featuring the astonishing Egyptian-motif doors! The “Indiana Jones” fedora was a last-minute addition…

Nob Hill (San Francisco) Elegance

Millenium_01

More Muratore goodness today, with a project I first scouted last year but only shot last month — high atop San Francisco’s Nob Hill.

Venetian plaster, white oak floors, handsome laminated wood columns, marble floor inlays, and some striking vertical stripes in the kitchen woodwork made this space exciting to shoot — lots to work with! Full write-up, LOTS of photos, and Behind-the-Scenes, click here.

Nob Hill Condo by Muratore

Yet another fun afternoon with Cindy Bayon, this time in a high-rise atop San Francisco’s Nob Hill, documenting more past work from Muratore. This traditional condo has a to-die-for view of the Golden Gate, Pacific Heights, and The Marina. It also has one of the best collections of original Julius Shulman prints I’ve ever seen. Can you say “pressure”?  🙂 More Photos After the Jump!
