CNN Style commissions Brinson+Banks to shoot portraits of legendary photographer Douglas Kirkland and his wife, Francoise Kirkland, at their home in the Hollywood Hills

“What could be more pressure for a photographer,” say Brinson+Banks, “than to take portraits of a highly esteemed, highly talented photographer with a six-decade-long successful career? We were assigned by CNN Style to head to Douglas Kirkland‘s Hollywood Hills home to photograph him and his incredible wife and business partner, Francoise Kirkland.”

The story, which you can read here, celebrates Kirkland’s career and the launch of his book Freeze Frame: Second Cut.”

“After just a moment with Douglas and Francoise in their beautiful light-filled home, we knew this would be a meeting we wouldn’t forget. They are so warm and welcoming,” say David and Kendrick. “We ended up chatting more and had the chance to discuss how we work, how he works, how they’ve navigated being a creative couple who works as a team. It was really special.”

Adds David, “Toward the end of our visit, Douglas touched Kendrick’s cheek and pointed out how the light fell on it and said, ‘See, that’s what I love.’ And it was coupled with a giant smile and it was such a beautiful quiet moment, because we, too, obsess over the beauty of natural light just out in our everyday lives. Our meeting just felt like kismet.”
