    I had an outstanding experience with Brad & Kaitlin at Architectural Photography. I selected Brad to photograph a completed construction project. The photography date changed several times because of our client's shifting needs. Brad and his assistant Kaitlin were extremely patient and accommodating. Brad even went back and shot the second half of the project at night, after hours! Kaitlin was persistent and committed to getting the shoot completed and followed up diligently, which was much appreciated, as I had a lot on my plate. The pics came out great. Brad managed to make an industrial project look exciting. I highly recommend their services!

About this pro

With more than 20 years of experience in architectural photography and lighting design, I provide top-tier architectural photography for the hospitality, commercial and residential building industries servicing architects, builders, designers and developers and the supporting industries. I immerse myself into every project to find and then tell its stories through composition and light manipulation. Recent clients and projects have included: LEO A DALY Architects, LinkedIn Headquarters Omaha, Custom Building Products, Waterfront Park San Diego, The Tokyo Hilton, The Cromwell Las Vegas and more. I am classically trained in all types of photography from my days as a Photographer's Mate in the US Navy. I am also hired to consult on lighting design for projects that I photograph and can thoroughly transform a scene with my lighting. My lighting adds drama and clarity while creating a vibrancy that only this type of approach can bring. I also provide 25+ years of Photoshop experience. Anything can be done from color correction to removing distracting elements within a scene. If you can imagine it, it can be done. As an architectural photographer, there is a great balance between artistry and gadgetry, deadlines and flexibility of schedule. I love the creativity of setting up a shot, but also get a thrill from understanding the technical side of the equipment. I have a passion for lighting and enjoy exploiting natural light and shadows or creating additional lighting design. I’ve been able to travel around the world shooting unique and interesting buildings, hotels, construction material details, and other unique sites. A photographer can be a very independent job, but I also work with great clients from a range of different industries. Photography truly satisfies a range of interests and allows me a lot of control in my work environment.
