Oh, Portland you sure have impressed me. I recently had the pleasure of photographing two restaurants in Portland for Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants. Shown below is Red Star and I will follow up later with Pazzo.
Red Star has one of the biggest whiskey collections in town, and like a magician bartender Brandon Lockman brings a wealth of enthusiasm to what he does. We used a number of backlit scenarios to bring out the action of cocktail-making. We also worked with 4 top-notch local models on the shoot and Executive Chef Kyle Rourke to round out the needs of marketing and pr. Enjoy!
