Artist George Dombeck Feature

This month’s issue of Western Art & Architecture Magazine featured a spread on local Artist George Dombeck. Though you may not recognize the name, his photorealistic paintings of barns & other outdoor themes are featured in many area restaurants & public spaces. I had a great time photographing Mr. Dombeck & his surroundings. Though the feature was called “In The Studio”, I couldn’t limit the shoot to just one space, as George also created all the architecture in his little piece of paradise north of Goeshen, AR.

Architectural and Commercial Photographer updating for SEO

I’m told that no one reads blog posts anymore, but I should go ahead & post to help me SEO. Use lots of therms like Commercial Photographer, Architectural Photography, lifestyle imaging, and plain old “Photographer”. OK

So if you read this, please send me a note or an email. I think the spam filter will allow real people like yourself to get through.

If some actually lets me know they read this, I’ll be prompted to update some recent photography projects, shooting for interior designers, construction companies, ad agencies, architects, and commercial real estate firms.

My Newest Gadget

Well, It’s not really a gadget, since it’s a 24 foot tall tripod. Yes, that little bitty thing up there is a not so itty bitty camera. I’m still working out the bumps, but it’s a great way to get a high vantage point without a bucket lift. Controlled by a wireless intervalometer.

It’s That Time of Year..

…for architectural photographers. Construction projects are getting their final touches, and the leaves are still green and just beginning to turn. We’ve just passed the point of the year when direct sunlight reaches north-facing facades early & late.
This has been a great year for photography, (surprisingly, given the extremes).
I currently have several architectural shoots pending completion for photography. It’s important to be flexible in my scheduling to accomodate the myriad of factors which effect the completion date for any given project.
Fortunately, in today’s economy, society has found ways to improve our schools, and I’ve been fascinated to see all the cool stuff now standard & expected in today’s schools.
Here’s a shot from Holmes Park Elementary in Sapaulpa, OK.
Not like it was when I was a third grader…
