Hourly Photography

Some projects require a deeply collaborative approach. For these, you and I will work closely to utilize our combined talents, discuss our ideas, and build upon each other's creative vision.

The resulting photographs are always breathtaking, and as the designer, you may be surprised by how perfectly they communicate your vision.

From day one, we'll work hand-in-hand, beginning with the pre-production tour, continuing throughout the photo shoot, and culminating in the final post-production phase.

Every detail, from the fold of the towels to the arrangement of the flowers, is carefully considered, discussed, and optimized to ensure it enhances the composition perfectly and fulfills your true intent.

My approach to photographing interiors has changed very little since I was taught using the 4x5 camera back in the 1980s:

  • Pre-visualize the final images.
  • Make carefully calculated decisions about every aspect of the composition, styling, and lighting of each image individually and the composition of the presentation of the project as a whole.
  • Spare no expense.
  • No effort is too great.
