After practicing architecture for 36 years and taking photographs of finished projects, I decided 10 years ago to focus on the architectural photography side of the profession. My early work included clients in Madison, WI, before moving to the Sacramento area in 2017. Great architecture, weather, and family nearby made this a good place to continue building my photography business.
I enjoy interviewing the project's designer to get an understanding of the concepts that shaped the design solution. Selecting the viewpoints for the assignment is an interactive process and is critical for defining a three dimensional environment through a two dimensional image. My architectural experience makes this process easier in working to develop the best images for the client's needs. Besides, it's more fun to come in at the end of the project after all the hard work is done and photograph the results.
Another subject I like to photograph is criterium cycle racing. Being a former racer helps me show what the rider sees and feels during a race while capturing the sport's intense physical demands.
