Black and White

Starrett Artists was commissioned to produce a wide variety of black and white photography for HNTB’s proposal to Sound Transit. The scope of our work included portraits, editorial, and marquee images.

Using a consistent lighting theme we started with portrait work providing specific cropping and framing so that HNTB’s graphic team had the exact type of images they needed for laying out their extensive proposal.

Working closely with HNTB’s Lisa Harrison, was a fun and creative experience. Having some roots in the Seattle added to the excitement as we documented potential routes and stops for this massive extension to Seattle’s growing infrastructure.

The wild and challenging landscape of the area, the density of city, the waterways all make a project like this a multidimensional puzzle that requires immense planning and engineering expertise. To work for a few days among these professionals was a humbling and eye opening experience. We were very happy when they landed the contract.



HNTB made sure to keep it’s promise to help educate young aspiring engineer’s with it’s education outreach programs. Another reason why they were a perfect fit for this project.
