Nothing is easy

The greatest challenges I find myself facing as an architectural photographer are not elaborate projects, or stunning architectural design. No, the greatest challenges are the apparently simple projects, like this empty warehouse. Image

It’s not easy to make 27,000 square feet of empty space look interesting and sexy, but it’s all in a days work for me. Challenges such as this are where my creative vision, talent and command of composition are put to the test. My use of line, form and flow make the difference between an interesting image that describes the space and it’s purpose in a meaningful manner and a waste of electrons.

It’s my job to make even an empty warehouse look spectacular, to create a visually captivating image that communicates the design concept and makes a connection with the viewer so it will be remembered. I'm proud of this shot and want to share it with the world.
