VisionEntriesArchitectural photography of retail spaces is more than creating images. This section is intended to showcase my procedures, thoughts as well as current and archived work. Please feel free to return again as this is frequently updated.

Iphone Art

These three images are examples of images that I recently had taken and worked on with my new Iphone 6.  There is something very soothing and satisfying in working images quickly, images become more spontaneous and free.  I worry less about each detail and focus more on each image as an overall piece of art.  Enjoy!

Cacique

I just finished processing the files for Lane Bryant's Cacique Lifestyle concept prototype.  This Jersey City NJ, site creates a fashion forward branding experience with both active wear as well as intimate apparel.  

design:retail features API's Walmart to Go

The July issue of design:retail magazine featured a cover story I photographed for API+.  The Walmart to Go concept combined the big box concept that Walmart is known for with a convience appeal.  The challenge to this photo shoot was obviously the exteriors, which needed to be done during the magic moment when sunset combines with darkness.  Since the site was open, I had to work around a very busy gas station.  Combining several images together allowed me work around the traffic/people issues.  I was able to get the exteriors I needed before total darkness fell.

Throwback Thursday-MMMMM

This throwback is M&M's World NYC designed by Chute Gerdeman.  This colorful and fun site had a busy time in the awards scene when it opened.  It won a record six awards, including the International Store of the Year Award at the ISP/VMSD International Store Design Awards!

The challenge with this site was timing!  A looming award deadline had the crew working 14 straight hours at a fast pace to get the images we needed.  I then had to send files straight from the site to the client in order for them to prepare the files for the deadline.  I remember using a local NY assistant for the shoot who left me with the comment "That has got to be the most efficient use of time I've ever seen!"  

Needless to say, it was well worth the effort!

Summer Vacation 2014

I recently spent a week in a house on beautiful Norris Lake TN. The house was remote, with no connection to the internet, a wonderful way to get away and spend time with family and friends. I had a great time hiking near the house where I stayed and as the river was low this year, I had the opportunity to see rockscapes I had missed in the past. The lake rock made for some intriging patterns as you can see from the samples.

I tend to gear more toward black and white imagery for my personal work. Textures seem more vivid and beautiful and the lack of color allows the viewer to isolate subjects. Enjoy!
