NASHVILLE INTERIORS AND ARCHITECTURE PHOTOGRAPHY BLOG
Last week, I featured some of the photos of the Northern Lakeside Home. From the photos, you probably have a pretty good idea as to what the space looks like. Maybe even how it might feel to be in the home? That is one of the main goals I have when it comes to interiors and architecture photography… to document the space in a way that makes the viewer want to step inside.
This past fall, I had the pleasure of working once again with Renae Keller on a modern home in Northern MN. We arrived 2 nights before the shoot as we had scheduled a scouting day the following morning. I prefer to do a scout on each shoot as it helps me to pre-visualize the shoot day and helps things run smoothly – allowing us to maximize the amount on time spent shooting.
Photography is often the last step of a long, often complicated – and expensive project. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears goes into the projects that my clients create. Photography is the evidence to the world that this project not only happened, but was well designed and thought out. As a professional photographer, it is not only my job to press the button on my big, fancy camera, it is my job to represent my clients in the best light possible with all of the tools that I have at my disposal… and the camera is just a small part of that toolkit.
The only word that comes to mind when I go back to the first couple weeks of things shutting down due to Covid is “bizarre”. Like many others, it had me strongly contemplating a career shift, but not in a completely different field.

I had been driving by this location regularly and I was never quite sure what was going up. Was it a new retail location?

I am a big believer in just putting things out there and seeing where they take you. When Covid hit and things started slowing down, I started a personal project photographing many of the commercial buildings in my city. One of those buildings was Pioneer Bank. I had been driving by this location every single day, and had watched this building go up since the beginning…
Walls of windows, airy, contemporary spaces and tasteful finishes welcome you into this 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home. The main living area’s open floor plan is ideal for entertaining, while a cozy family room and front office create the perfect quiet retreats. The master bedroom suite boasts his and her walk-in closets and a generous bath.
Big homes like this are a rarity in Southern Minnesota and this 14,000 sqft “castle” in southern Minnesota built to entertain. This was the first home I photographed for Deichman Construction, who was using these images to compile a regional magazine to promote their work. You can view the magazine below. Some of the details of this home include a two-story library inside of a stone turret with an iron spiral staircase connecting the two floors, tudor styled latticework windows, drive through porte-cochere, 18 seat dining room, and full indoor gym.
