My Art Hangs in Some of the Finest Homes in Town

Prior to being a full-time architectural photographer, I spent some time learning landscape photography.  I was blessed enough to learn from one of the best – Jon Cornforth.  I went to some amazing places and shot some gorgeous images.  I even did art shows at the Mill City gallery and at Dunn Bros. Roseville.  Though […]

The Heart of the Home

The Kitchen is the Heart of the Home. This old adage is true in many ways.. besides being one of the primary work spaces, it ends up being one of the primary gathering spaces in a home.  I can’t count the number of times that I’ve seen everyone at a party packed tightly into the […]

Tuscany in Kenwood

Kenwood is one of the super-premium neighborhoods in Minneapolis.  Kenwood is a gingerbread dollhouse-encrusted hill perched just southeast of downtown Minneapolis.  Back in 1995, I looked at a carriage house apartment behind a 5000 square-foot mansion that would have been the nicest place I had ever lived – and it was above a garage.  Given […]

A Room with a View

I love when a house has a unique surprise – something that makes me drop what I’m doing because I’m dying to see what it has to offer.  This house in Lake St. Croix, MN has that wonderful screen porch on the garage reachable by a skyway from the main house.  Why?  So you can […]

Prior Lake Remix

I love to revisit old work even though I rarely do anything with it.  I was recently looking at this set of photos from a beautiful million-dollar home that I shot for the builder in Prior Lake, MN when I realized: I can do even better. I’m hardly the first artist to have that feeling.. […]
