Westin Tampa Bay by Crystal Bos

I can’t tell you how many times we drove around this hotel in circles looking for the best spots. We had plan for drone, but right before our shoot we found out they had adjusted the fight zones to exclude the entire area around the Westin…just our luck. I found a great parking garage and did a bit of hiking to get these guys, but I love the results. I have been enjoying incorporating more life into my photos lately as well so what better opportunity than a working, busy hotel. Enjoy exploring these Westin updates from Accelerated Contracting Services…can you spot Matt in any of these shots?

Palm Harbor Water Views by Crystal Bos

This shoot was a full production day. I have to admit, I am not used to so many people on site ready to help and collaborate, but it was just fantastic! This home is full of bold design and architecture. Thanks to Pasquale Design, SDG Architecture, and Campagna Homes for letting me capture this amazingly cool build!

If you enjoyed these images, here’s an added bonus with a short drone video of the home…

Mandalay Beach Club by Crystal Bos

Jen, one of the lovely designers at Decker Ross, invited us to photograph these beachy/coastal vibes in the newly designed lobby/common spaces of Mandalay Beach Club, Clearwater Beach. The colors and textures here translate so well, with a little assistance from me. ;-p Looks like these are going into print publication as well so look for them in next month’s issue of Tampa Bay Magazine!

Summer Work or Play... by Crystal Bos

We shouldn’t be allowed to have so much fun at work! Matt and I drove up to Nocatee in Jacksonville, FL to capture their newest community addition, Spray. We had the water park to ourselves and believe me I wanted to jump under that bucket! We did however enjoy some TFlats poolside and came home with great tans! I might have a twitch from removing all of the palm supports from the trees, but so is new construction! For those of you that don’t live near Nocatee, here is a peak at this amazing new summer spot for the residents of this community…

I challenged Matt with the drone to fly over the entrance and time his contact with the bucket as the water fell…wish it wasn’t so windy out but not too bad on the timing!

Building Tampa Bay by Crystal Bos

I am lucky enough to work with the fantastic Gulf Bay Builders in Tampa Bay. They take the forgotten lots of neighborhoods like Seminole Heights and Ybor to build energy efficient and environmentally responsible homes like these.

Clay Theatre Renovation by Crystal Bos

The Clay Theatre is rooted in history for Green Cove Springs, FL. The 1937 building was brought back to life with a new purpose thanks to the Vallencourts in this now beautiful wedding and event venue. All the design and craftsmanship from Basham Lucas Design Group and Carlton Construction brought this dream wedding space to life. Micamy Design Studio then came in with their beautiful style and turned this piece of history into a romantic and modern piece of art. Take a tour below…

Designer's Home by Crystal Bos

One of my favorite people to work with, Lauren Andrews Design brought me into her own home to photograph their completed remodel. This adorable home in the heart of Tampa had all the right touches of cozy and sweet. <3
