Hip To be Paid! Editorial Story in Home Decor and Renovations Magazine

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

There are guaranteed to be laughs when hanging out with William Macdonald! I have been working with him for about half a year now. Not only is he such fun to work with, but the spaces he designs are curated with the highest quality material and furnishings! I am driven to do them justice with my photography.

Happily, a couple of our recent projects have made the covers of magazines!

This was published in the August/September issue of  Home Decore and Renovations Magazine. Here is the Issuu Link so you can have a good read.

In Hoss Magazine with Dvira Ovadia

Tuesday, September 1, 2015


The fall issue of  Hoss Magazine features Dvira Ovadia’s design and my photography in  an article by Dvira,  titled Dvira Ovadia, Family-Focused Design.

This project was one of the first I worked on with Dvira, and one of my favorites with her so far. I love the soft color pallet she used, the blue on the wall, and the mix of natural and semi-industrial accents throughout. Have a look some of the pics from the shoot. And, hey, make sure you check out the article in Hoss Magazine.

Gladstone Media and I: We're making the fish look pretty!

Monday, August 10, 2015


I am finally posting work from one of my favorite food photography projects!  Back in May De La Mer Fresh Fish Market, opened a new location and launched a new website. The location and site were designed by the award winning Gladstone media. Gladstone Media is a boutique-style multi-media design and production house, based in Toronto.  You can see a borad showcase of their fantastic work on Behance. They hired me to bring the product of De La Mer, and their vision for the site to life with photography. This was one of my favorite projects in a while. I love shooting food, and the style they were requesting was just the style I love: authentic, rustic, and full of color. It was a real pleasure working with  Creative Director Jeremy Gladstone, and Art Director Katya Garipova-Friedman. Here is just a sample of the work we captured on the shoot day.

Creativity thrives best when constrained

Tuesday, May 26, 2015


When people think about creativity, they think about artistic work -- unbridled, unguided effort that leads to beautiful effect. But if you look deeper, you'll find that some of the most inspiring art forms, such as haikus, sonatas, and religious paintings, are fraught with constraints. They are beautiful because creativity triumphed over the "rules." Constraints shape and focus problems and provide clear challenges to overcome. Creativity thrives best when constrained” 

Marissa Meyer, current president and CEO of Yahoo!

Last week, I was working with new client, and fabulous designer, Melissa Davis, and we discussed this exact thought! We were photographing a condo Melissa designed for Asad Mecci while working on Scott McGillivray’s Income Property. As is often the case with design reality-TV show spaces, Melissa was working with a conservative budget. To some, this may be a negative. Intuitively, one would think the best project would be one with an unlimited budget. But, as this endeavor and the ensuing photos prove, that is not necessarily the case. Sometimes, the financial constraints churn creativity, and produce the most imaginative results. One is forced to push the limits, and solve problems in distinctive, and previously un-tried ways.



Asad’s condo and Melissa’s design is a now a resource for creative and budget friendly solutions. Melissa used unique surfaces, such as stained plywood, for  surface coverings such as the on the fireplace and the bedside feature walls; a Huskey tool chest becomes extra cabinetry under the kitchen island. The island itself was made from Ikea butcher block. This same butcher block material was used along with Lee Valley blind shelf supports, to create floating shelves, which book-end the fireplace. I think my favorite budget DIY in this condo is the cheesecloth curtains! Yes cheesecloth! After all, cheesecloth is muslin (it just happens to also be useful for making yogurt).



I love DIY, modifying, and creating things myself. One of the first things that comes to my mind when I see something I love, is could I make that myself? So photographing this project and hearing about Melissa’s process was truly inspiring. Do you have a project where you experienced this phenomenon? Do you like the challenge of creating within constraint, whether financial or otherwise? I would love to hear your thoughts, and see the results of this creativity technique!

Flowers, Flowers, and more Flowers! Everybody loves flowers!!

As I mentioned in my last post, I love Instagram. It is fun to see which posts get the most "likes"; what happens when I hashtag different words and subject matter, what is trending, what does everyone love. What does everyone love??

FLOWERS!! I love when interior designers prop with beautiful flowers. It changes the space so dramatically. And then, I get to capture them and post them later on instagram, guaranteed to get multiple instagram love!

A couple of weeks ago I got the best of both worlds! I got  to shoot with and for a florist in a beautiful home. Brad Smith  and I worked together with Leanne Kelly (a great friend, creative soul-mate, art- director, graphic designer, and producer), to create a series of photographs for his newly launched web site.

One of his loyal clients graciously offered her home to us as the backdrop to showcase his beautiful floral creations! This was a thrilling day. The house was impressive, and the various arrangements Brad put together, customized for each specific space were outstanding!

Have a gander here, and be sure to follow him on IG and look at the shots on his website (created by Leanne).


Here is brad hard at work arranging items on the table just right for the photo!

Small house with Maximum Style!

Monday, April 20, 2015

One of the aspects of my job I love so much is meeting new creative people and seeing new work everyday. In the last few months I been able to do just that quite a bit!

I have recently worked with,  was Rebecca Goodman, who designs under the name of RTG Designs. (Her web site is underway, but she can also be found on her facebook page). For all you jewelry lovers, she also designs cute little jewelry on the side.

How did we meet? She found me on Instagram!  (@stephanibuchmanphoto) She started following me @stephanibuchmanphoto, knew a few of my existing clients, and eventually gave me a call to talk about capturing her designs.

I love the instagram community and have become a little obsessed with posting and viewing other posts daily! It is a good thing!

Rebecca was hired by her client to gut, design and furnish the interior of a a small townhouse. She took on the challenge, and the end results are fantastic. She created space which now boast maximum style and old-world-European charm.

Have a look at some of the shots we came away with from the shoot day!
