updated. Portraits of Classmates in 2010. As a premise, I asked them to hold something that would represent themselves and better show the world who they are. While most of them picked their architectural models, most revealed their personalities quite well through what they were holding. Also I shot this entire set using Kodachrome because Dwayne photo was going to stop doing slides. So no more development of the film…………….

2010 Shanghai Expo: Seed Cathedral by Heatherwick Studio

Seed Pavilion (1)

It had one of the most incredible interiors I’ve ever seen. The Seed were really impressive. I would have enjoyed it more if it wasn’t so much push and shove. I could barely get a shot off before being pushed along the way out toward the exit.

2010 Shanghai Expo: Danish Pavilion by BIG

Danish Pavilion (12)

I was quite surprised by it. I didn’t expect to see this double helix get constructed because the whole time i was wondering how it was structurally sound. I guess in the end, those crazy steel frames really did it. The building was shaking constantly from people taking steps. It made it rather difficult to shoot long exposures. In addition to the thousands of people in that pavilion with me there was rain. There were no biking around the pavilion that day…..

Cathedral of Christ the Light

Cathedral of Christ the Light
30 Sep 2008 / 0 Comments / in Architecture, Photography

Located in the intersection of Harrison and west Grand, Oakland California, Cathedral of Christ the Light (CCL) is the seat of the Bishop of Oakland. Since my company work across the street from it, We were given a tour of the cathedral before it was opened to the public. It was completely brand new with people still install the interior water elements while we were visiting. Do I have to mention all the great design work SOM has put into this? Its pretty self explanatory when you see the photos. While taking exterior shots of this place. I got stopped by the FBI…… Apparently they work in one of the buildings that was in my composition. I was approached by 2 FBI agents that went through all my photos. So note this: FBI wallets are long and their badges are not shiny. Now you know.
