July 15, 2014

The Stoneleigh Hotel CLAIRE MCCORMACK PHOTOGRAPHY-8205

The Stoneleigh Hotel stands today as one of Dallas’s most historic hotels. Located in Uptown, it was originally built in 1923 and has remained one of the cities’ most sought after locations for Hollywood icons. It’s most famous guest ranging from Elvis Presley, to Judy Garland, to Katherine Hepburn.

With a recently updated lobby, bar, spa and restaurant- plus a pool on the way, the Stoneleigh is housed with eclectic & modern furniture, a chic courtyard for the Uptown guests, and an experience to match it’s beauty.

I had the opportunity to photograph The Stoneleigh for FIJI Water’s Dallas City Guide last month, and they kindly asked me to come back last week to photograph their restaurant’s fabulous food. Enjoy a sneak peek of some of their top dishes here from Graze Restaurant & Bar and be sure to stop in and grab a drink or a bite next time you’re in the area!

FIJI Water : Dallas City Guide

July 9, 2014

FIJI Water Dallas CLAIRE MCCORMACK PHOTOGRAPHY Press - 1

 

I’m humbled to say the least as I sit here and try to write this blog post today. I’m absolutely blown away at the clients that I get to work with … 

Last month, FIJI Water approached me and asked if I’d consider photographing their Dallas City Guide. {To say I was shocked and thrilled is only the beginning.} Without hesitate I jumped on the opportunity to work with such an incredible global brand and photograph some of Dallas’s most iconic hotels, restaurants, bars, people and landmarks.

I prepped with their design & creative teams in L.A. before hitting the ground for five straight days in Dallas, working around the clock, to photograph, edit, and deliver the images to to their brand daily. It was an incredible experience through and through, {{ and I’ll be honest, slightly exhausting at 6+ months pregnant}}, but fabulous in every way!

I’m incredibly grateful to FIJI Water for allowing me to be a part of this Dallas project and to be a part of the bigger FIJI Water Cities Guide as a whole. It’s a great concept for people who travel and want to enjoy a city in a new way, with new recommendations. If you’re traveling to Aspen, Austin, Charleston, Dubai, Hollywood, Las Vegas, London, Miami, New York, Singapore or Sydney… check out those guide here! Their writers and photographers work hard in each city to make it a great experience for travelers and those that enjoy seeing the city in a new way.

Also, thank you to the wonderful Dallas clients I was able to work with : The Bar Belmont, Kylde Warren Park, Bishop Arts District, Katy Trail, Bolsa & Chef Andrew Bell, Neiman Marcus Downtown, CBD Provisions & Chef Michael Sindoni, The Joule Hotel, FT 33 & Chef Matt McCallister, Hotel ZaZa, Abacus & Chef Kent Rathbun, The Fairmont Hotel, The Nasher Sculpture Center, The Majestic Theatre Downtown, The Dram, The Rustic, Stampede 66 & Chef Stephan Pyles, The Mansion Hotel and lastly, The Stoneleigh Hotel. What a fabulous set of talent we have in Dallas and I’m honored to have worked with all – thank you to everyone : your PR teams, your chefs, your stylists, your front desk managers, your valet attendants, your bartenders and hard working staff that made my time with you all so enjoyable. I appreciate all your did to work with me & FIJI Water that week. I look forward to getting back to each and every place as well!

Enjoy these images from the Dallas City Guide and be sure to check out the real guide on FIJI’s Website here. Thank you all!

xoxo- claire

drink.well | Austin

A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of working with husband and wife team, Michael & Jessica Sanders, for their bar :  drink.well.

drink.well austin

Opened in early 2012, drink.well. is an award-winning neighborhood cocktail bar and restaurant located in Austin’s eclectic North Loop district. This small space is built on a big commitment to serving delicious, craft-forward fare in a vibrant, service-forward atmosphere.

Classic and contemporary craft cocktails anchor an inventive menu that also features beer, wine and an extensive spirits selection that includes over 75 American whiskies. Simple, passionate cooking from the kitchen results in savory, sharable American pub fare with fresh ingredients and bold flavors.

The most important aspect of drink.well.’s business is people – not products. A friendly, knowledgeable and engaging bar staff provides guests with a backdrop for lively conversation and the love & kinship that comes from sharing great food and drink.

FIJI Water :: Sneak Peeks

June 12, 2014

I had the great pleasure of being asked to collaborate with FIJI Water a few weeks ago for a City Guide photoshoot of Dallas. So, last week, I had the opportunity to photograph 19 of Dallas’s greatest restaurants, hotels and places to be in the city! It was fabulous, exhausting, wonderful and I met a ton of incredible people along the way! A week I’m incredibly grateful for to say the least.

If you don’t know about FIJI Water- it was founded in 1996 out of the desire to share the earth’s finest water with the world.  Today, it is available in leading hotels, fine restaurants, retail locations, as well as by direct delivery. As a leading export of the Fiji Islands, FIJI Water is now the number one imported bottled water in the United States and is enjoyed in over 50 countries across the globe.

The City Guides are a fun feature FIJI Water has recently been creating. They are a platform on their website that allows their consumers to view cities around the world and be inspired to travel and “Eat, Stay and Do” in those cities. FIJI Water is collaborating with some of the most sought after reservations in town for their features including FT33, Stampede 66 and Abacus. They also feature unique and stylish hotels in each city- Dallas having some great ones! Plus, they like to let readers know of great places to visit, explore and enjoy while they are traveling- from iconic places like the original Neiman Marcus, to the ever popular Klyde Warren Park downtwon.

The City Guide on Dallas will be released sometime next month- but in the meantime, enjoy these sneak peeks I put up last week!
