Summary : I love just about every facet of photography. And, without a doubt, every area has its own unique specialty in terms of vision, technique and application.

I love just about every facet of photography. And, without a doubt, every area has its own unique specialty in terms of vision, technique and application. I've spent the majority of my life shooting people pictures. With nearly every cosmetic campaign, and beauty campaign I shot, however, I was called upon to shoot the product photograph that was inserted into the advertisement or catalog. So I had to learn product and still life photography as well.

I love architecture as well. In fact, I graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Architecture; and although, I shot architectural images primarily for myself, one day Paige Rense, the Publisher of Architectural Digest called me-and asked if I would photograph her in her own home for the cover of one of her books. It was basically a fashion shoot to me. Paige was the subject, and I just included her beautiful living room in the composition. At the end of the shoot, Paige asked if I would start to shoot for the magazine. I said "Yes Ma'am."

This month's column is about creating art from images of your home, and still life images within the home. There's a lot to be said about this subject (which I call the wonderful world of working with subjects that don't talk back)...

Here we go...architectural and still life photography for fun and profit...
Note-The architectural images were all made for Architectural Digest magazine and shot in celebrity homes. No-I will not mention which celebrities :. The still life images were all shot in my own home.
