We were contacted byÂ EcoSteel Building SystemsÂ who asked us to photograph a house in Saint Helena which hadÂ incorporatedÂ theirÂ product into the construction. The exterior of this house is clad with steel.Â Â This is a new house designed byÂ Carlo Di Fede, architect with Di Fuede Design Group.
Yesterday we had the opportunity to photograph a new restaurant inÂ Berkeley, Victory Burger, located atÂ 1099 Alcatraz Ave (at San Pablo) in Oakland. The general contractor Black Creek BuildersÂ hired us to photograph the project and the restaurant owner, Sal Bednarz of Actual Cafe (which is adjacent to Victory Burger)Â came on-board to share the experience. While we were waiting, we had the treat of enjoying a burger and I must say this is an experience worth going out of the way for. The restaurantÂ serves locally and sustainably farmed meat burgers, with artisan buns and organic produce, along with other sandwiches, crispy fries, and shakes. Â The restaurant has limited hours 11-3 Wednesday through Saturday at the moment, with plans to expand those hours.
