Staring at the Sky

We were commissioned to photograph the Stratosphere, the tallest structure in Las Vegas, along with all of it’s associated properties. Further, the client requested an unencumbered edge to edge view of the property’s ground level structures, which span almost a full city block, with an even more challenging caveat of minimal distortion.

A Wrap Bigger than a Chipotle Burrito!

Vegas is not known for being quaint. So when you gotta get your message out there, the bigger, the better. Take for example the iconic Penn & Teller building wrap, which has graced one side of the Rio for well over a decade. Penn & Teller’s creative team, along with Caesars Entertainment reached out to us to help continue the tradition of getting these seriously funny guys’ mugs right in the faces of everyone coming in and out of Vegas. The duo tower over of the Vegas skyline like giant sentinels with watchful eyes and a smirk.

Hacking Hakkasan – from Editorial to Advertising

Hakkasan Las Vegas main dining room.

Our Hakkasan images crosses over from editorial to advertising.

Our good friend Melinda at Vegas Seven knew our soft spot for interesting architecture, as such, she assigned us to photograph the Panek home for the magazine. Continue reading

Francis George taking a photo on the strip somewhere around Encore

We are working on a personal project on our Off Days. We can’t reveal too much right now, but we can show you some of the behind-the-scenes stuff. It’s an herculean task with so many interesting things to photograph. But for some unknown reason we decided to execute the project during the middle of summer with our fair city being in the middle of a desert . See more after the break Continue reading

New Portfolio Site

We just relaunched our Francis + Francis site. The site focuses on our architectural work. A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into our selection process, but the end result is beautiful. We are finally able to show all the years of hard work in a clear and concise manner. Also updating what we have shot today (or lately) has been made easy with the use of “live books”, so you may be surprised on your future visits. Enjoy!
