15 Reasons to Hire a Professional Architectural Photographer

15 Reasons to Hire a Professional Architectural Photographer

As a 20-year professional photographer of architecture and interiors, I’ve been asked many times and in many ways (some more subtle than others!), to justify my fees.  More broadly, potential clients often want to know why they should pay for professional architectural photography at all.  In an earlier blog post titled 12 Reason to Invest […]

New Logos for a New Decade

New Logos for a New Decade

I had my old logo designed by a firm in Washington, DC, way back in 1996.  I was newly married, my wife was in grad school, I’d just finished my photography program, and my career was just beginning.  I knew next to nothing about logos … or design … or marketing … or a whole […]

Celebrating 20 Years of Architectural, Interior, Aerial, and Land Design Photography

Celebrating 20 Years of Architectural, Interior, Aerial, and Land Design Photography

Thanks for helping me celebrate my 20th Business Anniversary, 1996-2016! Working for oneself in a creative field for so many years has surely had its pluses and its minuses.  It’s not been a straight path, by any means, but more of a meandering, stop-and-start, jump-this-pothole-and-avoid-that-ditch, sort of journey.  I expect it’s that way for most small […]

Aerial Photography – a Seattle Photographer’s Love Affair

Aerial Photography – a Seattle Photographer’s Love Affair

When I was about ten years old, I fell in love with small planes.  A friend of the family’s had her private pilot’s license and would occasionally take my dad, my brother, and me flying in a 4-seat Cessna 172.  Four seats meant my mom, who hated flying anyway, had to stay home on the […]

Art, Architecture, and the Photography of both

I recently had the very good experience of working with Seattle artist James Brems, who happens to also be a good friend. Our daughters go to school and played soccer together and we’ve gotten to know each other the past few years. James is a painter and sculptor who has shown in galleries around Seattle […]

Happy Holidays, 2014

Happy Holidays, 2014

When I was first starting in photography, I worked in black in white in a makeshift darkroom set up in one of the only two bathrooms in my parents’ house in California.  Even in photography school in the 1990’s, I spent endless hours in a wet darkroom working with both color and black & white […]

Wall Art for Client Interiors

Wall Art for Client Interiors

I had an amazing opportunity this past summer to photograph some great architecture — my field of expertise but also my field of interest! — for a client.  Nothing new there as I photograph architecture and buildings all the time.  However, this shoot came about in a really different way and for a different purpose […]

Powerful Personal Work

This powerful piece of video is the personal work of New England-based photographer Trent Bell,  I won’t say too much about because I don’t want to spoil the impact, but I urge you to spend the nine minutes it takes to watch.  This is what personal work as a photographer has the capability of doing.  […]
