Los Angeles, California // The Disney Concert Hall - Golden

Chicago is the first city that I fly off to when I need some inspiration. Here are a three of images that show you why I love the architecture in Chicago.

Los Angeles, California // Petersen Automotive Museum Exterior
Seldom does a building mark its place in the culture of a city as "Fast & Furious" as The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. Opening in 2016, it has done just that. Every angle of this unique building is based in the designs of the auto industry during the age of "hotrods". Its impossible to take your eyes off of it, let alone place your camera down. Of the hundreds of images I have shot of the architectural "speed-demon" this one is my personal favorite.

San Diego, California // The San Diego Museum of Art
I launched my career within the walls of this beautiful structure, serving as the Senior Graphic Designer.
I photographed it very late one night when the park surrounding the museum was eerie and void of tourist. If you look at the design of the banner on the building it features Louis Kahn who was the architecture who was responsible for The Salk Institute in La Jolla and featured just above this image in my portfolio.
