About the Book
In this book you will find some of my favorite architectural photographs. These photos are not organized by project chronologically, but are intermingled from various photo assignments taken over the years and laid out according to the idea that architecture is the result of basic human desires to live, work, play, and stay.
I have always appreciated architecture. In fact, it is my third love following photography and graphic design. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to dabble a bit with architecture when designing and building both my studio and my home. Both were labors of love.
I have been taking architectural photographs since the beginning of my career. It is an integral part of my business allowing me to work with a diverse group of clients, including architects, interior designers, premier residential builders, major construction firms, developers, residential brokers, realty companies and real estate owners.
I have travelled extensively across the country to do architectural photography. It is always awe-inspiring to be in the right place at the right time, when the light is so beautiful and in perfect harmony by nature. The result is exquisite photos that never fail to please the client.
