“Talking about love is like dancing about architecture” Joan (Angelina Jolie) in the movie “Playing By Heart” (1998). I am neither going to attempt to dance about architecture or talk about love, but sometimes I even find it hard to put into words my love for modern architecture.
Oregon Home Magazine hired me to photograph this home for their latest issue (in stores now), showcasing the connection between the outside and inside, large use of windows and the playfullness of its simplistic elements with the sophistication of the architecture. The home owner, Corey Martin, was the architect for his beautiful home with amazing use of space and light. Check out his brilliant work at www.architecturepath.com. I loved meeting his family and seeing how they moved around the home’s space, playing with their son Casey, working at their home office, and even baking a chocolate cake (one of my person favorites- thanks Michele). Here’s how the story turned out! Enjoy!
If you still haven’t been to Backporch Coffee Roasters‘ new location, I’m not sure where you’ve been… it’s beautiful. I’m calling it my second home these days, as I love to sip my latte’ while emailing, writing proposal or even blogging. I was hired to photograph images for their advertising collateral, showcasing their snazzy new spot and details such as Ruby, their new baby, the La Marzocco espresso machine. Yes, you heard me, La Marzocco to all you coffee “snobs”… oops…connoisseurs out there.
I wanted to compliment the modern interior of Backporch Coffee with a clean and simple approach to the imagery, which isn’t hard since, let’s face it, that’s pretty much what my photography leans toward anyway. I used mostly all natural lighting for their imagery and focused on clean lines and off-set composition. Here are a few of the images.

No matter what profession you are in, educating your clients in your field is so important. Not only will they understand where you are coming from in regards to expertise, costs associated, etc, but, they will be able to better realize why they even need your services in the first place. Same goes with photographers. I dare say, even more so with photographers, but then again, I am biased.
With the help of the AIA (American Institute of Architects) and the ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers), this article helps iron out key points to finding an architectural photographer that not only meets your needs, but with the proper quality and expertise.
