My photo history is I graduated from the Art Institute of Colorado in 2005 and then worked there managing the (photo/video/lighting) equipment library for 5 1/2 years. After that, I went freelance and I assisted Emily Minton-Redfield, David Lauer, and Kimberly Gavin, who are all well-established architectural photographers in Denver area.
When working on a project my purpose is to take a three-dimensional world and interpret it into a two-dimensional world so they make sense and tell a story. When beginning a new project I really like to scout a job when possible and of course, there is no charge for that.
A typical shoot day is a 9 am start with my assistant and I, and our photography and lighting equipment. While my assistant sets up gear I like to walk the project and make the shot list /order of the shots. I shoot to my computer so I can really work the details of an image on a larger screen. I do typically follow the light around the house depending on circumstances. I really try and focus on the storytelling aspect of a house and only shoot the best images. I'm not someone who documents the whole house like a real estate photographer.
A good majority of my clients are interior designers and because of that, there's a stylist who comes to the shoots. She/He is someone who brings extra books, flowers, throw blankets, pillows, art that might be missing and all the gorgeous bits and pieces of really great images. This isn't always someone that has been hired from the outside (you can do that too I have recommendations) but it can be someone from the office who has a knack for accessories and styling.
After the shoot you can expect a 2-3 week turn around for images. Click on my contact page and drop me a line to start collaborating!
