Here’s a peek at some spec work I’ve been doing recently, as I build my freelance portfolio. I shot the photos below for a stylish new coffee shop in south Austin, called Seventh Flag Coffee.
Seventh Flag is located in a super trendy area of town, near the Vuka coworking space and the food trailers at South 1st and Monroe. I wanted my photos to communicate the geography of the shop, as well as its spacious, sanctuary-like interior, and the careful attention to detail they pay in their coffee-making. The existing brand assets for the shop– namely the black & white flag design and vintage typography– influenced my process for editing the photos. I desaturated them slightly to maintain a vintage feel, and to emphasize the black, white, and latte tones in the images.
I hope you enjoy these! As I mentioned, I am working on building a freelance photography portfolio and corresponding website, so please let me know if you need photos for your business at a super-reduced rate. I’m aiming to shoot on assignment at a different restaurant, non-profit, or other awesome spot each week between now and December, and I have a few spaces left in my schedule for the right folks.
