about the Photographer
A Cincinnati-based photography company of designed spaces, Vickie and Mark visit and photograph completed projects in airports, offices, construction sites, healthcare, all ages of educational establishments, colleges and professional sports facilities, located across the United States. They create photographs of these spaces to help architects and designers win architectural awards, document project completion and also generate marketing for builders, designers and engineers.
Mark has over 20 combined years of Architectural, Corporate and Visual Communication photography experience in both film and digital spaces. He stays aligned in the craft by keeping up on the trends of architectural photography, digital techniques and aerial drone. Paired with an appetite for new experiences and new personal projects, he's already on the next photographic adventure.
It's about meshing their style and technical capabilities with the intentions you built into your designed space.
WHEN I’M WORKING ON A PROBLEM, I NEVER THINK ABOUT BEAUTY. BUT WHEN I’VE FINISHED, IF THE SOLUTION IS NOT BEAUTIFUL I KNOW IT’S WRONG.
Kudos! Whats being said about us.
~ Phoebe | GM Solar Solutions: I love the pictures! Thank you Mark! You’re a magician.
~ Lisa | Flashes Of Hope: Hi Mark! Your photos are absolutely BEAUTIFUL, artistically, technically and emotionally! Thank you so much for continuing to volunteer and give these special families the gift of your time and talent as well as portraits that will be forever cherished.
~Athelia | Marketing: We're very pleased with how you've depicted our ceilings at this facility. We deeply appreciate how much effort you exerted to stage the furniture and eliminate price tags. The colors & lighting look great and you've really helped our products to shine! Thanks for all you do!
~Ally | Product Marketing: I also wanted to say EXCELLENT work with the custom color matching - they look virtually the same as our prototypes! I know this must’ve been a task because of the low lighting in the space. But you did a great job! Much appreciated!
construction of the photo, a short story of architectural photography
If it's not about the process then what do we have left?
As architects, designers, manufacturers, photographers, or other creators, we all have our preferred process of fashioning our product.
Here is a simplified 2 minute story of creating architectural photography of the brand new Clinical Health Sciences and Wellness facility at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. I used a stripped down version of my traditional equipment I usually have to take on location. When I'm on location, it's usually in a different city plus I may be using more than one camera at a time in addition to using my drone.
Gear used in this is a Sony A7RmIV camera, Canon 24mm Tilt-shift lens and a Sirui Carbon-fiber Tripod. The strobe is an Elinchrome ONE. For the video portion I filmed myself with a GoPro 7, and a Canon 5dmIV camera. Post-Production photo-finishing was done with Apple computer and software are Capture ONE, iMovie and Photoshop.
I love the process, this is not about the gear; www.studio66photography.com
