Great Green Spaces, Frick Environmental Center & Award Opportunities


If you are receiving this email,  I want to welcome you to my newsletter. After a busy twenty-nine years in the field, I’ve decided to exhibit my extensive portfolio, open up fresh conversations around architectural photography, and seek new collaborations. Additionally, many of the architects, designers, developers, and companies I work with are making waves in their fields, and I want to celebrate that.

This new visually focused newsletter invites you to take a pause and experience beautiful architecture and design. I will also include important upcoming award opportunities that architects and designers might be interested in applying for. For the June issue, with summer upon us, the focus is on “Great Green Spaces” that capture the life and energy of outdoor environments.

I am passionate about my work and experience in the field and I look forward to hearing from you with questions, comments, and especially possible collaborations.


June Theme: Great Green Spaces

The projects highlighted above come to life during the summer. Each offers room for lounging, socializing, exploring, and playing. Through a thoughtful onsite photoshoot and a dedicated post-processing routine, I capture outdoor architecture in its best light.

Featured Project: Frick Environmental Center

The Frick Environmental Center in Pittsburgh was recently selected as a finalist for the Urban Land Institute Global Awards for Excellence. The LEED-Platinum center, designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson (BCJ) is an outstanding example of sustainable architecture and vibrant public space. I worked with BCJ and the Environmental Center to highlight both the important sustainable architectural features and the center’s mission to provide diverse programming for Pittsburgh youth.

Architect: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson
