Abraham & Paulin Photogrpahy
Real Estate Photographer
Company Overview

Making Art, Creating History: The well-crafted image has always been a central part of Russell Abraham’s life, no matter what the tool used to create it. Russell started life with a paintbrush in his hand. He traded in that paintbrush for a T-square and graduated with a degree in Architecture from the University of California at Berkeley (cum laude) before eventually swapping his T-square for a view camera. These days, his tools of choice are a digital camera and a high-powered desktop computer. He has taken the time to learn the new technologies and develop enough of a mastery of them to both teach and write about them. He is an active member of the local photo community and serves on the Board of Directors of ASMP.
Kristen Paulin has become a key player as associate photographer over the last three years. She handles most of the post production work and digital communications for the firm in addition to being the second camera on many shoots. Her intuitive knowledges of lighting make her an invaluable asset. She is a transplant from Chicago where she worked for a fashion and lifestyle photographer. She has a BFA from the University of Cincinnati in media and photography. She has also photographed interiors and architecture in Chicago and San Francisco for a handful of architects and designers. With a strong interest in both architecture and interiors, Kristen adds a smart dimension to our capabilities to offer a broader range of services to our design community clients.

In the last few years Russell has written and photographed several books on architecture including “California Cool: Residential Modernism Rebor” and “Rural Modern”. He has also collaborated with architects to produce four other monographs.

Abraham & Paulin Photography’s client base has included many noteworthy national and international design firms including HOK, SOM, KMD, Smith Group JJR, Swatt|Miers and Erhlich Architects. On the hospitality side of the ledger, their client list has included major hotel management companies and cruise ship lines, such as Hyatt, Marriott and Royal Caribbean International. Of Russell’s work, one client commented, “he is the consummate professional to work with. His greatest talent has been his ability to have the viewer feel as if they are part of the interiors, something I don’t see in a lot of interior photography.
