Austin City Skyline

Taken from the walkway of the First Street Bridge looking across the waters Ladybird Lake towards the Congress Avenue Bridge the Austin City Skyline rises above at Twilight on the evening of April 22nd 2016.  Barely noticeable is the packed crowd of bat watchers on the Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge where up to 1.5 million bats emerge each evening from March to November.   The tallest building in Austin, The Austonian, rises left of center of the picture and on the far right is the Hotel Van Zandt one of Austin’s newest Hotels located on Rainey Street.  For image and print inquiries please contact me at 512-701-0985 or by email at ethantweedie@gmail.com

The Pennybacker Bridge or 360 Bridge Architecture

One of the finest examples of bridge architecture located right here in Austin Texas is the Pennybacker Bridge or 360 Bridge.  It was opened in 1982  and in 1984 the bridge won 1st place in the Federal Administration’s Excellence in Highway Design competition. In 1992 the bridge was selected by the Austin chapter of the Consulting Engineers Council of Texas. The bridge was picked as the most innovative example of Austin architecture and to this day is a icon of of the city.

On both sides of the 360 Highway there are hiking trails to the bluffs overlooking the bridge, its a great place to enjoy the outdoors and take in the beautiful view of Lake Austin and the surrounding Hill Country of Texas.

Latest Luxury Real Estate Photoshoot

EthanTweediePhotography

My team and I recently photographed Cottage 5 at the Kukio Golf and Beach Club, a private, residential equity club located adjacent to the Four Seasons Hotel on the Kona-Kohala coast on the Big Island of Hawaii.

The cottages are some of my favorite residences to photograph here on the Big Island. Each Cottage I have photographed at Kukio boasts exposed timber framing giving a rustic yet elegant feeling. Cottage 5 consists of 3 detached pods or hales, two private master bedroom hales and one main hale with kitchen and living room fronting the pool/spa and Anchialine fish pond. Cottage 5 incorporates all the elements needed for that Hawaiian indoor-outdoor living experience.

Cottage 5’s location within Kukio is in a prime location as it is discreetly tucked away on the Fish Ponds yet a very short walking distance to the main dining pavilion, beach bar fitness facility, concierge, ocean sports, beach and swimming pools. Cottage 5 comes with its own Golf Cart parking garage so you are never more than 2 minutes away from getting around the Club or playing the two golf courses, Tom Fazio’s 18 hole course and the 10 hole course.

To see more images of this property at Kukio Golf and Beach Club please got to listing agent Harold Clarke’s website Luxury Big Island.

Architectural Digest is the international design authority, featuring the work of top architects and designers, as well as the best in style, culture, travel, and shopping.” The Big Island’s very own Hawaii Wildlife Center is currently featured in the April 2015 issue of Architectural Digest. The feature highlights US design firms who contribute at least 1% of their time for pro-bono work for non-profit and the like, hence the name of the feature “Good Works.”

On Assignment at the McDonald Observatory, Fort Davis Texas

Untitled3
This past November 2014 the University of Texas at Austin/McDonald Observatory hired me to photograph their 3 telescopes in Fort Davis Texas.

During the four days on location my team and I took over 7000 images of astronomers, teachers, students, telescopes and directors from the ground, from a helicopter, on ladders and even from a boom lift! Above are a few highlights from the assignment.

Mahalo to the University of Texas at Austin, McDonald Observatory and the staff of both organizations that worked so hard to make this a successful commercial shoot!
