Waiting for the Perfect Shot

"There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer."

Ansel Adams

We are inspired by great artists past and present. Legendary photographer Ansel Adams (1902 – 1984) was known for waiting many hours on location for the light and shadows to be perfect. His patience paid off. Mr. Adams left an incredible legacy of work. The Yosemite National Park series and winter scenes are breathtaking.

Our design firm is currently creating a custom website for Charles Dunn Company, Tri-Cities office. The Tri-Cities team — Bill Boyd, Linda Lee and Scott Unger — asked us to design and develop a compelling, bold and stylish new site for the Glendale-based commercial real estate office. CDC Tri-Cities' work in real estate is impressive, but their online presence was lacking. The new site will feature an overview of the firm in words and images, capabilities, team biographies and testimonials, plus current information and photos for all properties.

For the "panorama" photos (above and below), our creative team did two photo shoots near the top of the Verdugo Mountains, in a location with a stunning view of the Glendale skyline and beyond. The towers of downtown Los Angeles are a beacon 10 miles to the south. Skyline photos by Vic Pallos. Creative direction by Emilie Pallos.

Thank you to Glendale City Councilmember Paula Devine and husband Art Devine for allowing us to shoot from their home for this project. They have a spectacular view!

Full site will launch in late Spring, 2016. Stay tuned!
