It's All New

It's All New

It’s been eighteen months since I resigned from the studio of Hedrich Blessing, where I spent the first 17 years of my career.  The last year and a half have been exciting, frightening and liberating all at once.  There’s a satisfaction that comes from being a one man show that I just can’t put into words.  Though my past provided me with a strong foundation in Architectural Photography, I see it more as a springboard for the places I want to go with my vision and am anxious to continue the evolution of the way I see things, from initial client dialogues to the lengthy post production that every image passes through.

As I’ve forged ahead,  I’ve still held great fondness for the images I’ve made in the past and have displayed them here along with the new work.  Recently, though, I received a note from my former employer asking me to remove those images from the site that they hold the copyright to.  Of course I respect their wishes and have spent this evening reworking the Architectural Portfolio.  It was actually kind of thrilling to revisit the work of the last several months and put together a portfolio that was wholly my own, sort of a celebration of the new beginning.  I realize that I’m very fortunate to have such talented clients who entrust me with work so strong that I can wipe the slate clean, start anew and still be very proud of the images presented.  It is a testament to the relationships I have built over the years and I am most appreciative.  So, to all my clients, Thank You!

    Your images are very disciplined and carefully crafted and if one studies each beyond the initial response, one sees delicate composition as well as playfulness. I have come to appreciate intelligent augmented lighting that is supportive, discrete and invisible such as yours.
    Nice to see this breadth of work in such a short time – a pleasure.

    Thank you, Ihor, for your kind words. We do strive to keep the lighting inconspicuous while enhancing the design. It’s an ever-evolving esthetic.
