I was recently commissioned to photograph & film a set of videos for Dalseth Dental in Apple Valley, MN as they update their website and marketing needs. My assistant and I spent many hours on-site studying this beautiful prairie style building designed by ALTUS while capturing architectural stills & video for my client.

Photo of the Day 8/24/2018

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.

While my primary focus is (and always will be) on architectural photography,

Minneapolis with the Fujifilm X100s

Like most of us here in Minnesota, I was experiencing a bit of cabin fever a few weeks ago.  We spend so much time indoors that any day that is sunny and (relatively warm) makes us all want to put aside our daily duties and head outdoors.  The fact that we had a record breaking warm streak in February made focusing all the more difficult.
