I was recently commissioned to photograph four St. Croix River Vally hospital locations for Health Partners in Minneapolis, MN. The location featured in this Photo of the Day (POTD) is of the newer addition to the Hudson Hospital which was designed by the fabulous architectural firm Perkins + Will.

At the end of January I had the honor of photographing once again for the good people over at the Milwaukee Art Museum. This time their need was to create a series of images that capture a one-of-a-kind installation called Inherent Innate Tension by conceptual artist, Lawrence Weiner.Read More

The goal of this project was to showcase the new store’s design, layout and exterior mall signage. And it was the exterior mall signage that was my favorite area to work with. There was such interesting weather that day which made for some amazing lighting and dramatic skies. My other favorites are of the storefront, the checkout space and the dressing room area.Read More
