Placing people within the occupied spaces is an important need for our architectural clients. Layering people in selected areas helps demonstrate how the spaces will be used. Architects are able to balance the use with design and function. When we work with your design team to
fully understand the plans, lighting, and specific use intent so that we harness the complete architectural master plan vision.

For our interior design firms clients will want to showcase the furniture and details within the scenes. Importance is placed in layering the furniture pieces so that each item is clearly visible, unobstructed yet artful within the composition. We make certain that the colors, fabrics and textures used within the commercial or residential spaces are accurate. We will review the space with you so that we learn about the specific areas of focus within the spaces.

It is part of our job to make sure we take the time to learn how you were involved in your project.

Choosing the most appropriate angle helps to simplify and reduces the composition to reveal what is most essential. We will put your best image forward no matter how large or small the job!

Our professional architectural approach allows us to light spaces and make the images look natural and dynamic. It is a delicate balance using the natural light falling into the scene and knowing when and how to add small amounts of supplied light when necessary. It is a processes of fine tuning the strobe with precise feathering so that the image appears just as your eye would interpret. I personally work on each and every image. Nothing is sourced out to others. My goal is to make sure that each space appears as if you were sitting in the space yourself.

Becoming a lighting master is a passion! How does light interact with a space as fun the sunlight moves along the structure. It is fun to watch this process play out in both interior and exteriors spaces. My goal to maintain the integrity of the colors on the walls and fabrics yet make them standout. We want to work with your marketing team so that we can provide the vision that will maximize your brand. Of course, if we see compositions that are artful and not planned then we always recommend letting our trained eye take advantage of those moments in time. Two variables, direction and time of year, will both help to decide when and where to photography powerful and dynamic architectural exterior images. The angle of the sun at various times of the year will help accentuate the site lines as the light falls upon the structure. It is magical when we provide your firm with a group of portfolio caliber images to showcase your latest design projects. Our images will draw people to your business year after year and provide value as you attract new clients!
