We photographed this project for architect Steve Swearengen with The Architects Office. The homeowner wanted an addition and Steve designed an addition to fit under the driveway, the part of the house that shows just to the right of the main house. With all the glass and the north facing facade we decided this would photograph best at dusk.

Yesterday we had the opportunity to photograph a new restaurant in Berkeley, Victory Burger, located at 1099 Alcatraz Ave (at San Pablo) in Oakland. The general contractor Black Creek Builders hired us to photograph the project and the restaurant owner, Sal Bednarz of Actual Cafe (which is adjacent to Victory Burger) came on-board to share the experience. While we were waiting, we had the treat of enjoying a burger and I must say this is an experience worth going out of the way for. The restaurant serves locally and sustainably farmed meat burgers, with artisan buns and organic produce, along with other sandwiches, crispy fries, and shakes. The restaurant has limited hours 11-3 Wednesday through Saturday at the moment, with plans to expand those hours.
