I earned my photography degree in Michigan in 1998 before moving to Denver. For years I struggled to find my niche, moving through family portraiture, kids' sports, business headshots, etc. Then in 2011 my wife and I were shopping for our first home. I saw endless listings with terrible photos, and it baffled me how even million dollar listings could get away with shaky cell phone images (it still baffles me). I asked our realtor if he had any listings coming up that I could shoot. It just so happened he was finishing up renovations on a rental home so he let me get in there and photograph it. I've been hooked ever since.
Architectural photography is so simple in theory but so intricate in practice, and each shoot presents a unique challenge of lighting, staging, and composition. There are endless ways to frame, stage, and light a space. It really is an endless learning experience with limitless creative possibilities, and its challenges are what keep me excited for the next shoot.
If you want to see what I'm up to when I'm not shooting for architecture clients, check out my Personal Projects page or my Shop page where you can find fine art photography prints for sale. I also regularly update Facebook with news, behind-the-scenes photos, and new work.
