ArchitectureDC And Recent Work


Please note: I am not updating this blog as often and I am now posting regular updates on Instagram.
Please follow me @ samkittner.

However I do want to share a spread of my images featured in AIA's ArchitectureDC magazine of the new student union at the University of the District of Columbia I photographed for Cannon Design and Marshall Moya Design.

Here's a few other recent projects:

I made the background and banner page architectural and "people at work" images for Miller & Chevalier's new website.  The venerable law firm has beautiful new offices in downtown DC.  I have collaborated on a number of great projects with Miller & Chevalier over the years and several panoramic images I was commissioned to create by the firm are in their extensive corporate art collection.

Capital BikeShare recently updated it's website and includes photographs on key landing pages I made during an extensive image library project I collaborated with the organization to create.

I made the "people at work" or as I like to call "Workstyle" images for financial management firm JMI's website.  I photographed the scene at their magnificent glass high rise Baltimore office.

Future Thinking on Georgetown


There's an article in today's Washington Post Style section about proposed ideas to modernize Georgetown, DC's oldest neighborhood in the coming decades.  The plans put together by the Georgetown Business Improvement District (Georgetown BID) and it's neighborhood partners include lighting Key Bridge, a gondola (yes, you saw right, gondola) across the Potomac River to/fro Rossyln, Va., and even a metro station in the years to come.  The story is illustrated with one of my photographs showing a temporary "Parklet," a parking space transformed into a green space with seating, that the BID sponsored last fall. I have been Georgetown BID's principle contract photographer for the past 2 years creating an ongoing image library the organization uses to report and promote the area.

REI Coming to NoMa in Beatles' Place


I am psyched to see the news that REI is going to locate a super-store in the Uline Arena building in NoMa!  You may recall that Uline Arena, also known as the Washington Arena, was the first place the Beatles had a concert in the US after they appeared on the Ed Sullivan show in 1964.  It has been a hollowed out shell, except for a few scattered upper level theater seats, and used as a parking lot for over a decade.  Douglas Development is in the process of redeveloping the building.

I have a soft-spot in my heart for REI as I worked at their original Seattle, WA store one summer during college (yes, a long, long time ago!!!) I spent out west.  I learned how to operate a fork lift in the store's warehouse!…and also got to hike all over The Cascades that summer.  And I love NoMa too as I have been the principle contract photographer for the NoMa Business Improvement District for almost 4 years.

It's such a great fit for the space and the neighborhood…what a statement of how hip, cool, and livable NoMa and DC has become!
