I’ve always wanted to show a before and after shot on my website but didn’t want to clutter it up, but now with my new blog I have the perfect place.  I recently took this photo of a private equity firm in Greenwich, Connecticut for HLW International.  The top photo shows the image after I selectively edit the color and contrast in Photoshop and the bottom image shows what the native capture looked like before any edits were made.

Architectural photography for BL Companies New York City

I recently arranged a helicopter to photograph the very store I shop in regularly…. the new Whole Foods Market in Brooklyn, New York.  Much of the produce from the store is grown in the rooftop greenhouse and the parking structures are solar panels. This BL Companies designed project is one of the greenest buildings in NYC!
