I came to photography through my passion for modern architecture.
I’m probably just a frustrated architect, really, but that’s all about choices and the road not taken – a story for another day. The point is that I love to be around modern architecture. To me, it’s the most interesting medium for artistic expression in that it must nearly always serve a function, solve a specific problem, and speak to the context of its environment. The source of my inspiration is in finding new and creative ways to capture the architect’s vision through imagery, and to cause others to see and understand what’s special and unique about each building.
I originally started to photograph architecture as a hobby, as a way of documenting the work that I most admired during my travels and around town. My work has now appeared in large-format art books, academic and professional architecture journals, and lifestyle magazines around the world. I also regularly accept commissions from architects, builders, and developers for new projects.
I have won numerous awards, including the 2013 Paris Prix de la Photographie photography competition for the Advertising / Architecture category, and my work was selected to be shown at the 2013 AIA convention in Denver.
