Nashville Architecture Photographer

Industrial Photographer

As an architectural photographer, I have the habit of only featuring the “pretty” stuff that I think should be in my portfolio of “best work”. Admittedly, by doing this, a lot of my work does not see the light of day. In fact, the SUBJECT of a lot of my work doesn’t see the light of day. These subjects are the places that make our society run. Sometimes they are the things that often go unnoticed. Occasionally, it is documenting the framing of a structure as it is being put together. I am talking about industrial photography – which, to me, is absolutely fascinating.

I often know nothing about the subject matter, but I am mesmerized when I stop and study it. The amount of thought that goes into the design and the years of planning that take place are humbling when you think of the minds that put them together… they will never get the praise from the public that a facade will.

The bridges we drive over, the awnings that we walk under, the hidden and often ignored things that bring order to society… these subjects may not be the “prettiest” structures in the world to the average person, but they are the most important. Here are a few of my favorites that I photographed over the years.
