Highlighting the Extraordinary

 

As you move through the pages of this website, you will find images of architecture. All are high quality photographs produced for architects, builders, real estate agents, and individuals.

I have long been intrigued by the way photography, applied correctly, can bring out extraordinary detail in everyday views. You may not know what attracts you to it—you just feel drawn in. Often, what you are responding to are small nuances of light and space that welcome you to the experience beyond the image. You aren’t just looking at the room; you are in it, looking out onto the lush foliage.

I came to photography as a parent. I was frustrated by my photo album, which held pictures taken with my point-and-shoot camera—a blurred photograph of my daughter’s face or an overexposed sunset. I wanted to take images that I could proudly display. So in 2000, I gave that camera to my kids and bought my first DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera. I immediately took it off automatic, learning how to shoot solely on manual, and never looked back.

Several years before I purchased my first DSLR camera, I had begun renovating homes, which nicely complemented my career as a real estate appraiser. With the need to document my projects, it did not take long for my new love of photography to merge with my appreciation for architecture. My goal with each image was to capture the essence of the space while placing the surrounding landscape and views in context.

My attention to detail and strong technical skills help me draw out the extraordinary qualities of my subject—whether I am photographing homes or commercial spaces.
