As an architect, landscape architect, or interior designer, you have carefully crafted your designs to meet your clients’ needs and desires while engineering solutions that can stand the test of time. If you are interested in not just documenting, but highlighting the best features of your work, you owe it to yourself to make sure the images in your portfolio are as timeless as the creations you have crafted.
That’s where Eric Norton Photography comes in—I provide architects, landscape architects, and interior designers with the images they need to build marketing materials and solid portfolios that showcase not only the functional aspects of their work, but the beauty of the forms, textures, mood, and materials incorporated into the design they have dedicated themselves to perfecting.
TIMELESS & BEAUTIFUL IMAGES
When you are searching for the right photographer to showcase your designs, what exactly are you looking for? Do you want someone who will document the building with a few quick snapshots or an artist who will make the most of light and composition? Are you searching for a budget photographer or a professional who can craft images you can use for years?
If you are interested in hiring a photographer who will snap a few quick shots and go home, I am not the photographer for you. Rather, I am a meticulous photographer who will slowly work my way through a scene to capture the mood of the space in a timeless style that you can use to showcase your work for years to come—sometimes beyond the life of the design itself. These are images perfected for marketing your business, entering your work into competitions and publications, and impressing new clients with your stunning portfolio.
I employ a variety of techniques in my architectural & interior design photography to produce images of a variety of styles tailored specifically for the needs of my clients. All you have to do is ask. From natural looking shots that rely on the use of ambient light and a few carefully placed strobes that make a space look casually elegant to images that are highly post-processed to give the space a Las Vegas flashiness, and everything in between, I work with you to develop a look that fits with your brand and highlights the best features of your design.
Prior to the photography session (either on the day of or the day before), I like to conduct a walkthrough of the space discussing the features that are the most important for you to show off. If we’re looking at a smaller space or just a few interior or exterior images, we can forego the walkthrough and jump straight into to the photographing. From there, it’s time to photograph. I generally shoot tethered to a computer or an iPad so you can see the images in real time and we can make any critical changes on site during the photography session.
After the photography session, all of my images are given a thorough post-production editing to remove any imperfections and erase those pesky additions to your design that are required by law (but not necessarily dictated by good design sensibilities). Once the photos are edited, I will present them to you via an online gallery and make any final edits and adjustments to finish off the set. If you would like to see some examples of my post-production editing, please visit my Before & After page to see the dramatic difference between some images straight out of the camera and images after they have been retouched.
Each photography project is a completely unique endeavor and no two jobs are the same. As a result, each quote is customized to your needs to fit within your specific time constraints and budget. No matter how small the job is, though, I pride myself on delivering images of the highest quality. Regardless of whether you just need a few images shot over a half of a day or a few dozen shot over the course of a week, please do not hesitate to reach out to me for a quote.
