Architectural Photographer, Chicago, IL

I have worked with architects, historians, and structural engineers for more than 25 years providing photographic documentation of projects of all sizes.

In addition to photographing new and restored buildings, I specialize in HABS/HAER/HALS photography that is archived at the Library of Congress. The Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) was established in 1934 by the National Park Service to create a public archive focusing on endangered structures such as industrial complexes, historic homes and neighborhoods, and civic buildings. The Historic American Engineering Survey (HAER) highlights bridges and linear resources. The requirements for this type photography include working with a large-format view camera and providing archivally processed black and white negatives and prints.
