Shooting with Eric Laignel
This week, we had the pleasure of spending two days with the talented photographer Eric Laignel. Yes, two days, because that is how much time we needed to shoot the townhouse that my team at Ghislaine Viñas Interior Design just finished up. If two days of shooting with Eric sounds anything like a complaint, consider yourself sorely mistaken. I couldn't imagine a nicer and more talented person to work with (and it doesn't hurt that Eric is...well, lets just say, "easy on the eyes." ) Eric is a superstar photographer who shoots interiors all over the world, and anyone who reads Interior Design magazine should recognize his name instantly since he shoots a lot for the editor in chief, Cindy Allen. She is, in fact, how I got to know Eric (truth be told, most of my connections and friendships in the interior design world are through Cindy).
We had 17 rooms to shoot plus the exteriors, and after having put so much love, energy, and passion into this house for the last three years, it feels perfectly natural to let my friend Eric work his magic. Eric has shot a lot of my work and I figured out right away that I could trust this professional. There is no discussion about what angle to shoot from, I just leave him to make those decisions and best of all we have fun doing it.
Thank you, Eric.
