Luxe Interiors+Design | Salvador Dali – The Argillet Collection

These are some of the photos from Off the Wall Gallery, in Houston.  They were hosting a private collection of Salvador Dali artwork.  Christine Argillet has know him since a young age & i believe her father was the publisher for either all or a significant portion of Dali’s artwork.  I was personally very excited to see the display, Salvador Dali’s artwork I have always been intrigued by.  It is unique to say the least.  Here are some of the people in attendance that evening & some of the artwork mixed in with work by other artists (statues, etc...)

Tynewood Showcase & Luxe Interior+Design

Another great event that I was invited to take pics for.  I get all of the structural shots, usually in a 30 - 60 minute window, so they aren't optimal shots all the time.  But, I love doing them & occasionally they will make their way into the magazine.  Mostly, I am there for the party & pictures of the guests.  I enjoy doing both & I am very happy for every opportunity (Carol Lamadrid @ Luxe Interior+Design)!

LUXE Interior + Design | Cupic Custom Homes, Elizabeth Garrett Interiors & more…

Last Thursday night, I was in Bunker Hill, TX, for LUXE, at a showhome by Cupic Custom Homes with interior designs by Elizabeth Garrett Interiors.  There were many other businesses that contributed to an amazing evening.  Well, for me at least, it was a  stunning home.  Seemed like everyone had a great time!  The home was staged with some great furniture Custom Creations Furniture & amazing artwork provided by Laura Rathe Fine Art Studio.  Obviously, this isn’t the level of home I am accustomed to, lol, but this house was amazing….  it was so spacious & with great windows?  When can I move in?!

Here are some of the other contributors;

McCaw Cabinetry
Audi of Central Houston
Segreto Finishes

City Kitchen Catering
Below is what, I, love to do; make online & hard marketing material for your business.  All these shots were from the event.  Obviously, there is a slight to significant difference between event portraits & portrait session photos.  The same with the interior/exterior photos, but hey, that is what I do.  Be as versatile as possible & maximize all opportunities!

LUXE Interior + Design | Hunt Slonem – Laura Rathe Fine Art Gallery

What a day! I get a new camera (Nikon D7200) @ Houston Camera Exchange, then I came home to play with it a bit & got a text about a last minute photography gig. I literally took the first shutter release at the event. I was kinda scared to use it! It is the scenario where you take photos all night & get home to find that you have completely blown it! Haha. But, I did it anyway.

Laura Rathe's art gallery is very beautiful in a unique little building off of Richmond Ave.  On this evening, it was full of bunnies & parrots.  Hunt Slonem was the artist of the evening.  A sit down interview, followed by a book signing in which Mr. Slonem, not  only signed each book, he drew each fan their own set of bunnies inside the front cover.  I am pretty sure I was the only one in the building who had absolutely no idea who he was, but the paintings were pretty awesome.  I was pretty inspired, if you just, DO-U, you will make some fantastic art.  

So, in conclusion; if you have $50k, you can get yourself a beautiful piece of Hunt Slonem art @ Laura Rathe Fine Art Gallery & I thoroughly enjoyed another LUXE | Houston event! 

Natacha LaFrancesca Jewelry

Natacha is an up & coming Houston designer!  I was a last minute potographer, haha.  Hopefully I will start becoming the choice photographer, but till then, I enjoy it all along the way.  Natacha is great, you will love her & her product.  These photos in some form will be in her advertisement, in the November December of LUXE Interiors + Design
