We got a call last week for some portrait work for the executive chef of the Galleria’s newest hot spot, Ello Sports Lounge. Darren Glynn wanted to shoot on Monday morning, so we were happy to start our week with his portrait session. I had actually done some interior shots of the Ello back in March for publication in Houston Modern Luxury. These shots were used to promote their soft opening, but the interior wasn’t quite finished at that time.
When I walked into Ello on Monday morning, everything was finished and beautiful. A very comfortable zen feeling is evoked from the moment you walk in the door and see the glass water wall and the colors of the restaurant. The food is awesome and we even captured a few food shots to promote a few of their new dishes including an awesome sushi roll (I won’t say what happened to the sushi roll after we finished the shoot – I had nothing to do with its disapperance).
A few of our favoriate shots from the day are below. If you’d like to set up a time for STP Images to shoot your executive portraits, just give us a shout at the studio or email us.
