    Reviewing the overall scope of the project comes first. The client provides the areas of focus that need the greatest attention. A site plan can be helpful to make sure that each area of importance is made clear. Specific angles can be chosen but we can also provide additional angles that will provide maximum impact once on the job site. The orientation of the facility and sun angles all come into play and help guide the journey toward completion.


    Production / Image Capture

    The photography goal is to provide an amazing visual portfolio representation of the project for any and all promotional marketing needs. We accomplish this by using the light falling into the space, choosing the best angle of representation, enhancing the light in segmented areas, and recombining various images into one natural exposure that most accurately represents how your eye would translate the scene.



    After completing the project we use our years of digital image technical skills to layer the images together to reveal the natural architectural scene. We make sure that the image colors are a true tone, dynamic, and tell the story of the project. We adjust images to our clients needs and desires afterwards. We review the contact sheet of images with our clients and enhance or remove anything that is unwanted. The attention to detail on each and every image is part of our service and is what separates us from our competition.
