Seattle- back from a lovely trip to Seattle for GQ magazine (under wraps for a while). Here are some images from a Seattle shoot last year- a coffee centric journey from Seattle to Portland for Japan’s Air Nippon.
Gas Works Park- Seattle.
After shooting in Hawaii and then heading straight to a job in Mexico, I finally spent a much needed week at home. Now, off to Seattle, one of my favorite cities.
Working with some amazing kids this week.
Valentines’s day on set with some of my favorite people + whoopie pies and Guinness-coffee ice cream floats for breakfast.
Vintage Cakes for Ten Speed Press! I loved collaborating with Julie Richardson of Baker and Spice on this book- she and her recipes are wonderful. Check out her bakery next time you’re in Portland- if only she would open an outpost in my SF neighborhood! Of course this was a great gig because we ate cake everyday, but I especially loved working with this fantastic team- a big thanks to Robyn Valarik for food styling, Ethel Brennan on props and art director Toni Tajima.
Alison McCreery at POP (Photographers on Photography) recently interviewed me and featured my work- you can check it out here. I really appreciate her insight and kind words about my work: “Kunkel has a painter’s eye for color, light and composition and a beauty that comes from presence and deep observation matched with a seemingly effortless technical sophistication that give her images an authenticity much in demand by both editorial and advertising clients. Infused with a sense of possibility and adventure both in the faraway and the everyday, her photos make one want to inhabit the life she captures and definitely tag along on some of her journeys.”
