I cut my teeth in the Interior Architectural Photography business making interior architectural photography for architects while still in college. At that time I used the large format “view” cameras and learned all of their complicated adjustments to extend focus and control perspective.  In those days, with film, it was not possible to get professional interior photography results without a truck-load of theatrical hot lights, a crew of assistants, cords, control boxes, and a good amount of luck generated from years of experience.

It IS possible today, with modern digital equipment used properly, to make the necessary exposures along a range of exposure values and combine them in post production and make a photographic illustration superior to anything made in the film days.

That’s saying a lot considering the vast scientific and artistic knowledge required by interior photographers of yesterday. In the past excellent photographers were sought out to “bring out the original design intent” of the architect and interior designer and some came pretty close. Today the photographer, using all of his digital palettes, is able to capture the actual look of an interior without trampling the original design with the artificial light required back then to get a usable exposure on film.

With modern digital cameras, Tilt and Shift articulating lenses duplicate many of the adjustments photographers used with their adjustable view cameras.

I use the tremendous line of Tilt and Shift lenses from Hartblei/Zeiss optics in Germany and the fantastic TSE tilt/shift lenses from Canon.

I’m very proud to be a featured photographer on the Hartblei/Zeiss optics company website in Germany.

I’m the only American photographer with this endorsement.
