It’s hard to imagine that drones have really only been a photography tool over the last decade or so and, in my opinion, they really didn’t produce the quality of images needed for architectural photography until the last few years.

Today I wanted to show off the top 10 kitchens (and kitchenette) photographs that I have had the opportunity to photograph for my clients over the years. Maybe it’s because I love to eat.

The Top 3 Things I Consider When Editing an Architectural Photo

Last week I shared the images of the rustic cabin in Grand Rapids, MN. I thought that it would be interesting to share what the editing process looks like for just one of the images. Believe it or not, this was actually a relatively simple edit.

Interiors Photography – Rustic Lake Cabin With Modern Fireplace

Last week, I talked about storytelling with photos. This shoot was a perfect example how why storytelling is important. So what does storytelling have to do with photos of a fireplace? Well, how many times have you looked at a photo of a fireplace and had an emotional reaction to it like you get with a book or a movie? My guess would be never. Ok, maybe once – but probably not.
