Artisan Landscaping | Architectural Photographer, Oregon

Wheww… it’s been a while since I’ve blogged. I’m sure everyone has their excuses, but mine is just out of sheer, head spinning, business. The saying “When it rains, it pours” could not explain my business more in this season. I’m not complaining, but instead, feel very blessed for my clients, new and old, who have put their trust in me for their photography needs.

A new client, Artisan: Outdoor Living & Landscape, hired me to photograph a home’s landscaping project in the Highlands. Before I met Kevin, owner of Artisan, at the home (residence to remain un-named), I had no idea what to expect – accept that I knew Artisan did beautiful work. I was blown away! Streams of water flowing around the home, rock formations (made by Artisan), waterfalls spilling into the pool, outdoor kitchen and bar, fire pits, an outdoor pizza oven, the WORKS! It was a photographer’s dream!

In order to accomplish the images seen below, the right time of day was crucial. In addition, highlighting certain key elements in the frame with the technical ability of proper lighting went hand in hand with what the sun was doing. Getting the right feel and mood to showcase this project was also a factor in deciding lighting placement and intensity. All in all, the client was thrilled, which means, I’m thrilled!

The recent issue of 1859 Magazine shows the final advertisement, designed beautifully by Dawn Boone Creative, here in Bend Oregon. Keep an eye out for more landscaping design by Artisan and images by yours truly.

900 Wall | Food Photographer Bend Oregon

I recently finished a photography project with restaurant and bar, 900 Wall in Bend, Oregon. Last year, 900 Wall replaced the infamous Merenda Restaurant and needed new imagery for advertising purposes. The wonderful ladies of The Marketing Department contacted me to discuss the restaurant’s needs, and right away, knew it would be a fun project. If you haven’t been to 900 Wall before, the staff and ambiance prides itself on an amazing bar, a comfortable and inviting atmosphere, and of course, their incredible always-evolving cuisine, using fresh, local produce.

The goals of their photography needs were to capture the atmosphere of the restaurant as well as showcasing some of their food and drinks. We wanted to maintain a feeling of warmth throughout all the imagery as well. Below are a few examples of the images we photographed for 900 Wall. I hope you enjoy!!
