Architectural Photography- Modern Home in Denver

I had the extreme pleasure to photograph one of architect Steve Lubowicki’s modern homes here in Denver before the winter arrived. The home is magnificent, and I enjoyed watching it change as the sun moved around it. What I enjoyed most, however, was the time between sunset and sunrise – the home showed it’s form and inner warmth best during twilight.  These photographs are mostly from the ground, but I did utilize a drone to capture a few from above.

Portrait of an Author

Portraits of authors and artists are among my favorite to create. In these situations I often find myself asking and listening, thinking and adjusting my visual efforts to better capture the artist before me. Photographing Denver based author, Bart Schaneman, to coincide with the release of his short novel, The Silence is the Noise, was one of these wonderful collaborations. I had known and worked with Bart before, but not until our portrait session did we ever chat about art, inspiration or life on a farm. His book is wonderful, and here are a few portraits of the author from that evening.

New gallery of portraits on my website!

It’s been a long time since I did a major website overhaul.  Always overdue, actually because a good portfolio is a constantly morphing, changing entity.  However – I did recently add a new gallery of portraiture that I’m proud of.  Mostly recent work for magazine and commercial clients.  Take a look, let me know what you think!

Downtown Denver by Drone (@Dawn)

A gloomy overcast morning helped me create some magical aerial photographs of Downtown Denver. You can’t quite see the mountains (a little disorienting for anyone who has lived here for even a short time) and maybe that helps elevate the moody tone in these black and white cityscapes.

New Portraits of an Opera Singer

Congratulations to Bass baritone Andrew Hiers, recently awarded the annual Norblom Award by Opera Colorado. Because of his selection for the award we did a portrait session.  Andrew is a great human, and a pleasure to photograph. I hope you get the opportunity to hear him sing some day.

Magazine Cover from a Photography shoot in Denver

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Marijuana Business Magazine for their current cover. As a photographer living here in Denver, I always enjoy this type of on-location executive portrait commission. The light, weather and backdrop are always changing but the thing that remains a constant is my goal to create a photograph that my client, subject and myself are all happy with.

New Portraits from a ranch in Colorado

The magazine finally came out, the embargo passed, and I’m eager to share these portraits I shot in rural Colorado.  Glenda is a pleasure to spend time with, and I believe she raises some of the best cared-for cattle in the country.

Aerial Architectural Photography at Dusk

Here are 3 architectural photographs from a shoot last night of The new Goddard School here in the Highlands, Denver. I am continuously amazed by what is now possible when using a drone for aerial photography.

Architects, Developers, Builders; do you want your project captured in a photograph like this?   Give me a ring, we’ll make it happen!

Amazing Drone Photographs

I have been commissioned to fly a few drone sessions at large construction sites here in Colorado recently.  My client wanted mostly HD video, but also a few photographs, too.  Below are two of the photographs that jumped out at me – what an amazing perspective the drone can offer!
