Architectural Photography

During the mid to late 1990s I was primarily an architectural photographer. I am drawn to architecture because of the repetition of the lines, balance, and challenge of making the everyday interesting.

As for interiors lighting, both ambient and artificial play a large role in our experiences with interior spaces. When I shoot these spaces, I always take into consideration the window lights, allowing them to be the dominant or main light in the photograph. Other lights such as strobes are used to fill and balance out the rest of the scene. Often I turn on the room lights which are tungsten or light candles and with a time exposure add a warm glow of yellow to the room.

When shooting outside, the light changes from the top of the building to the ground. Picking the right time of day to shoot is critical. I particularly like to shoot at dusk with an azure blue sky and the building’s interior lights on.

I have had many challenges when taking architectural shots, such as mixed elevations, barrel-vaulted ceilings, varying light sources of different Kelvin temperatures, mirrors, and tight spaces, to name a few. I use a 4 x 5 camera with swings and tilts as well as a Hasselblad camera to record the images. I have worked for architects both interior and exterior, interior designers, and real estate agencies. My architectural work has been published regionally, nationally, and internationally.
