Fun with Architects?

October 11, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

This isn't intended to be a slam against architects, but if you know any at all, the word "fun" typically isn't the first word you would use to describe them. These are complex individuals. They are super creative but forced to work within a strict set of factors and principles as they do their jobs. Gravity, load-bearing, esthetics, physics, and budgets all have to work together when they take to their CAD programs.

When I got a call from Whitney about working with them, my initial thoughts were not that this would be a fun session. In fact, I knew I should dress up a bit and not show up in jeans or shorts. Was I wrong! Everyone was totally into what we were going to create and we enjoyed the time we were working together. (OK, it was a little warm in the building with no air conditioning but other than that it was great!)

We did a few variations of a group photo. We also did one for fun to remember 2020 with masks on for safety. :)

I intentionally processed this with a "dark" feel

On a serious note, it always pays to be prepared. The fact that all my Profoto B10 lights are battery or AC saved my bacon. This was a borrowed location that had zero electricity available. If I were dependent on power, I would have been scrambling to pull this off. Since I wasn't, I never missed a beat and the session went as planned.

Individual portraits should be fun. You never know what reaction you will get from people.

I think it's fun to share recent work. In today's uncertain time that we live in, I never really know where I'll be shooting. Tomorrow morning I'm working out of our home, the next day I am photographing on location at a bank. I enjoy the new unpredictability of what I'm doing from week to week. This stage of my career is really enjoyable and I am blessed to have enough work to sustain us.
