Renovation Photographs

A neighbor owns an apartment in my building that she rents out. She recently finished renovating it and wanted to document the work before a new tenant moved in. Knowing I shoot residential interiors, she hired me to photograph the empty apartment. Here are some of the results.

St. Bart’s Church Staff Portraits

140730_5695_barnett

After a morning photographing the rental spaces at St. Bart’s Church, I spent the afternoon making portraits of their staff and clergy for their new website. The chapel was a perfect setting, and I posed my subjects with a stained glass window in the background. I lit the subjects prominently so the stained glass would be subtle behind them, and the constantly changing daylight throughout the afternoon ensured that each photo was unique.

Space for Rent at St. Bart’s Church

140730_5583_barnett

After photographing St. Bart’s Church’s Easter service, I was excited to have been hired again to photograph something completely different. The church is working on their new website, and they needed fresh photos of the spaces they rent out. I spent a morning at the church photographing everything from small conference rooms to the expansive sanctuary.

Behind the Scenes of the Style Shoot

140602_1807_barnett

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at my photo shoot with Barbara Viteri of Viteri Style Management. We got an early start for the day-long shoot with hairstyling by Barbara’s professional hairstylist husband, Ivory, and makeup artist Sara Kosmyna. The shoot was as much fun as it looks from these photos. Thanks to Sara for taking the photos of Barbara and me working together.

Style Shots in a Makeshift Studio

140602_1726_barnett

Barbara Viteri, interior design industry personality and the mastermind behind Viteri Style Management, wanted some photos for her new website and promotional materials. She had a clear concept in mind, and while I was perfectly equipped to make it happen in my studio, it was more convenient for her to do it in her home. We discussed the requirements, and she assured me that her living room was the right size and she could clear it of furniture. Everything worked out really well. I packed up everything I needed except for the 9-foot roll of white seamless paper. That wouldn’t fit in the car, so I ordered one to be shipped directly to her home. The fun part was that I left the remainder for her children to spread out and draw on.

Closing Ceremony for Braking AIDS Ride

140914_3774_barnett

To celebrate the enormous success of BRAKING AIDS Ride, riders and crew triumphantly rode into the closing ceremony in front of Cylar House, a Housing Works facility on East 9th Street and Avenue D. After a few moving speeches, a check was presented to Housing Works for the net proceeds of nearly $260,000. This will go a long way toward sustaining Housing Works’ mission of offering lifesaving services for low-income men and women living with HIV/AIDS.
