The iconic Sir Francis Drake hotel just off Union Square in San Francisco is undergoing a renovation and I was hired to capture the new design. The outside is staying the same—both the Gothic Revival exterior and the welcoming Beefeater-style doorman who greets you as you enter.
I'm relieved that they're keeping the Beefeaters. Where else can you get a fully festooned doorman in a red velvet outfit and matching cap to help you unload a car full of camera equipment?!
