my name is blake, and i like to make pretty pictures.
15 years ago I fell in love with shooting fine art landscapes of the American West, but after a sunny Southern California afternoon at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles I was hooked on shooting buildings and I haven’t stopped. My passion for modern design, stunning locations, and collaborating with amazing designers has taken me all over the world. For the past 6 years I have been working with the amazing people of HKS Architects shooting hundreds of their projects around the globe to create compelling images to help tell the stories of their designs. In doing so it has yielded over 50 covers of the world’s leading architectural publications, hundreds of articles, dozens of design awards, and several coffee table books. My travels have also led me to shoot some of the world’s top architectural projects. This blog is a journal of my stories and images from the road as well as the inspiration I find along the way.
