Exteriors – Custom Modern Home (Bloomington Normal Architectural Photographer)

Steve Kibler is an architect based in Chicago. Recently, he commissioned me with making a series of exterior photographs of this recently completed residence in Bloomington, IL. The home is uniquely beautiful!

20141110_BlogPost_SteveKibler_BooneCtHouse-1I arrived in time to make some full daylight images, then stayed through dusk. What do you think? Which lighting pattern better showcases the home’s design?

20141110_BlogPost_SteveKibler_BooneCtHouse-4 One of the key design elements is the cedar cladding shown below in the entryway. Coincidentally, Steve first contacted me without knowing that I am related to Ross, who was part of the crew from Prairie Woodworks that built and installed all of the cladding and interior woodwork. (Ross is my brother-in-law, and regular readers will remember that he built our table.) So this was an especially meaningful assignment for me!

And in the rear, these glorious windows!

20141110_BlogPost_SteveKibler_BooneCtHouse-3Unfortunately, there was some wind on this otherwise lovely evening – but we wanted to shoot in a hurry before we lost fall color and leaves and warm weather this week, so it was the lesser of two evils. 
20141110_BlogPost_SteveKibler_BooneCtHouse-5Thank you for the opportunity, Steve! Thank you to the accommodating owners for their assistance on this shoot. Congratulations to all of you on this remarkable home.
