I recently photographed high end interior and exterior doors for Classic Wood Accents here in Bend, Oregon. They are a top manufacturer for doors, stair casing, molding and hardware for custom homes. Here are a couple examples of some of their recent fine craftsmanship.
I love shooting exteriors of homes! I don’t know what it is, maybe the time of day, maybe the boom lifting me 30ft in the air, or the warm glow coming from the inside of the house, but I just love to see a home’s exterior in all its glory! This house in particular, if you remember my last post, was a beautifully built, contemporary style home in the heart of Black Butte Ranch! Kirsti Wolfe and her team of experts hired me to photograph this home for their portfolios and marketing collateral. Here are the exteriors…
When Scott Gilbride from Scott Gilbride Architecture hired me to photograph this home in Bend, Oregon, I was very excited. Not only is Scott’s work impeccable, but I absolutely love shooting modern architecture. Tucked along the Deschutes River, this home showcases clean lines, beautiful textures, and a seemless connection between the outdoors and indoors.
After being gone for so long, coming home to Bend makes me really appreciate sights and places that before I took for granted… like the Tower Theater. So, last night, I decided to stop and take a closer look and even snap a few shots for the ole’ stock portfolio.
Here’s one I liked.
Photography work has been BUSY! I am very appreciative for all my wonderful clients, new and old who understand the importance of marketing in a downward economy. Thus, I am a bit behind posting my latest projects, I apologize. Here is the start of a round of new posts. Efusion Energy Club recently hired me to photograph their new product, the energy drink “EDGE”. I worked with the raw acai berry with the product as well as showing the high energy performance of the drink, showing the sweat beads on the can itself. I also worked with the original can “RAW” with the dunk tank effect. The image showing the can splashing in water is a high end technique with super fast strobe flashes of light to capture the splash with perfect focus.
An impending summertime means a busy architectural photography season, giving beautiful conditions for lush landscaping, mild exterior weather and gorgeous summer skies.
This beautiful recreational park building designed by the talented Nathan Good Architects was photographed last summer in The Dalles, Oregon. With a simple, yet elegant form, Nathan Good and his team created a structure that is modern, beautifully symmetrical and multi-functional.
As the photographer, it was necessary to show multiple angles and different lighting situations for the architect and his colleagues. Again, mixing and controlling the natural light and the artificial lighting elements is key when taking good exterior images. In addition, the photo shoot had multiple funding partners who all had specific needs for the final imagery. Combining the necessary elements of a good photograph with the requests and requirements for each client was crucial.
