I have been doing architectural photography for many years. My first success was in 2010 when the New York State Museum picked my image of Owego along with 11 other images to advertise their Landscape Exhibit.

Of course there is an entire gallery above of Southern Tier Architectural Photography and more examples of architectural images in the gallery for National Awards. I do lots of architectural photography!

However, my professional work began with the purchase of my first ARCHITECTURAL LENS, the Canon Tilt-Shift 24mm.

Here are the two images of Manor House Inn that were the first I did with a tilt-shift lens. The Inn still uses them for marketing.

WIDE ANGLE LENSES. A 50mm lens takes into its view the same scope as we do with a glance of our eyes. So a 24mm lens takes in even more. I also own the 17mm lens, which captures even wider subjects. WIDE LENSES are what are best for architecture and real estate.


Of the wide lenses, the TILT-SHIFT LENS has a unique capability: We want the lines of our subject, such as a tall building, to be parallel to the edges of the image. — We do not want the building to be leaning backwards! — Now if the camera with the tilt-shift lens is level on the tripod and the camera is centered on the subject, then we will get those parallel lines. The tilt-shift lenses indeed SHIFT up and down. To capture a tall building, I just use a knob on the lens to shift it up to capture the top of the building. Please look at the example below of 139 Washington Street, a tall building on a narrow street, and you will see what a 17mm tilt-shift lens can accomplish.

I offer Southern Tier Commercial Photography for rentals and sales or just to have a record. All I can do to make the properties look really good I do.  The lines of the buildings are right.  The lighting makes the structure look as good as can be.  I use the architectural, tilt-shift lenses that capture tall as well as small structures.  My captures do not lean!  I often shoot at dawn for the good lighting and the absence of cars, spend lots of time, and use the best equipment to yield masterful results. My aim is to create affordable images of the quality that would suit the architectural magazines.  

Working for Paulus Development LLC which received a grant from the Community Preservation Corporation to create loft apartments and commercial space in the old Ansco-Camera factory on Emma St, Binghamton I was proud to do.

Beth David Synagogue, Riverside Drive, Binghamton NY

Beth David Synagogue was designed by Werner Seligman, with the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier.  The building won an architectural award for a building of a synagogue in 1963.  A metal print of the image, of 30″x10″, hangs in Beth David Synagogue.
