I look forward to hearing from you!
Adam Kane Macchia, born in 1979, grew up in Mt. Kisco, NY. His photographic experience in NYC began in 2008 assisting with C. Taylor Crothers. Taylor's work shooting some of the top real estate in the city inspired a love of interiors and design. Soon after, Adam began assisting with Eric Piasecki to explore the art of interior photography. Capturing a beautifully designed space has become Adam's most gratifying experience in his work. He loves discovering new places, meeting new people and has enjoyed fantastic collaborations with clients such as:
The New York Times, Luxe Interiors, Interior Design Magazine, Architectural Digest, NYC&G, Westchester Magazine, Baxt Ingui Architects, BHDM Design, AvroKo, The Crown Restaurant Group, The Gotham Organization, The Carlton Hotel, Hilton Hotels and The Garden City Hotel
Currently, Adam lives in Huntington Station, NY with his wife Jenny, and his children Leo and Dorothea.
I have visited a number of times to see my wife’s family, but never in the winter! It was wonderful to experience the Christmas traditions in Sweden (its all about the meatballs and the herring!). Stockholm is a very photogenic city but this time I only had a few hours of daylight to work with. That made for some fun long exposures and snowflakes falling through streetlights. Its not the endless golden hour of summer but its always inspiring to be there.
Here are a few images from a week in the sun
As we head into 2019, I want to share one of my favorite projects I shot last year. The architect Ken Linsteadt and the interior designer L.B. Copeland combined to make this home the picture of family comfort. I love the calmness of the color palette and all the spots to fall into a big cushy chair. The architecture allows a connection with the outdoors through huge pocket doors in the dining and living areas. I loved trying to capture the idea of a breeze blowing through an open window and I hope the photos convey that sense of serenity.
I am really proud of the work I did with BHDM Design to photograph the Shoreline Hotel in Waikiki. I spent a week at the beach (mainly working!) to get these images which were brilliantly art directed by Dan Mazzarini. I really need to thank him and his team for all their tireless work. The photos were published in the June issue of Interior Design Magazine and also were picked up by Domino and Clever. And here is a link to the fantastic website developed by the hotel: https://shorelinehotelwaikiki.com
So happy for Hector Capponi and his Rising Star feature in NYC&G. I have been working with Hector for a couple of years and can testify to his talent and hard work. I am really proud to have shot the photos for this piece and am especially excited for the day when we can publish a full project!
I was excited recently when I was out shopping for new blinds to see that my photograph was on the cover of the Hunter Douglas catalog. The shot was taken in 2016 during the filming of a TV commercial for Hunter Duglas with Iris Apfel. I was there to photograph the sets, but also had the chance to marvel at everything that goes into making a production like this happen. And they definitely picked the right location because these 2 story windows really showed their product well!
Here is a turn of the century tudor home in Huntington Bay, Long Island I photographed for The New York Times Real Estate section. I only have a couple of hours to capture an entire house on these jobs so I need to just let the inspiration guide me and not worry about how many lines aren’t perfectly straight! The house felt rich with history and I really enjoyed exploring and creating these moody images on a rainy day.
Some cozy Vermont images from my recent visit…
I finally had a chance to check out the November issue of Interior Design where BHDM Design was featured as one of their 40 emerging designers. I couldn’t be more happy for Dan, Brian and the team at BHDM who I have worked with for almost as long as I have been in New York. The article featured a project they designed for Flywheel Sports, which I had the pleasure to shoot this past summer. Thank you to ID for the great layout and as always to BHDM for the opportunity.
