I had a great time working with the awesome staff at Retina Specialists of Michigan photographing their feature story in the latest issue of Ophthalmic Professional Magazine!

This past spring, I had three photo sessions at Craft-Revival Jewelers that conveniently encapsulated the three genres of photography that I do—architecture, product, and people! Here are a few of those shots featured in the latest issue of Great Lakes By Design Magazine for their “Design Spotlight”!

I photographed the inside of the newly built Ransom District Library this past March with TowerPinkster Architects and, after patiently waiting for the landscaping to fill in, returned in the summer to photograph the building’s impressive exterior architecture!

Some spectacular granite work by Minnesota-based quarrier, Coldspring, that I photographed at the new expansion of Frederik Meijer Gardens. They were behind all the interior and exterior stone wall cladding throughout the new facility. Coldspring has been around since 1898 and has contributed to a handful of notable Washington, D.C. memorials, such as the FDR, MLK, and Korean War Memorials!

Egypt Valley Country Club had me come out to photograph their newly updated clubhouse! This shoot was meant to happen over a year ago, but COVID-19 put a screeching halt to that. It’s hard to believe that the last time I did photography here was over 5 years ago. It was fun to see that many things had stayed the same—such as the same friendly and helpful staff—while other things received a fresh upgrade!

So excited to have photographed two consecutive covers for American Farmhouse Style magazine! Just by the time I settled down from the excitement of getting the April/May cover, the June/July issue showed up in my mailbox and—what do you know—it’s yet another one of my shots on the cover! This one was from my shoot last summer with Sarah of @graceinmyspace who was so much fun to work with!

Pittsburgh-based design/build firm, PWCampbell, sent me over to First State Bank in Saint Clair Shores to capture the branch’s night-and-day transformation! Here are a few favorites from the shoot, along with a couple pre-renovation photos to show the vast improvement.

This twilight shot of CityFlatsHotel in Holland is my favorite shot so far of 2021! The hotel arranged to leave all the front-facing hotel rooms unbooked so that we could make sure each room was lit up for the photo. I got up around 5:15am on a Friday morning, drove down I-196 to Holland, scurried up a ladder onto a neighboring building, and got all set up just in time to capture the lit-up building 20-30 minutes or so before the official sunrise time when the sky has that rich blue hue to it. I also got the glowing yellow-blue sunrise sky and clouds reflecting in the windows, not to mention the perfect timing with the springtime tree blossoms!
