          I am pretty excited to have been nominated for the International Black and White Spider Awards for my image of the Johnson Cobbe image captured at the SAIT Campus, in Calgary AB in 2012.  When I was apporached to capture this project, the Johnson Cobee building intrigued me, and I created a vision I wanted the end result to be. With the help of the project management team, I was able to create this vision.   This image also hangs 8ft wide in the architectural firm and also a 4 ft wide in the construction management company. It has been published various times and now gaining the nominination for archtecture in the spider awards.    


Can I say..Love my job!!

It was with great pleasure that I received the phone call from the PPA – Professional Photographers of America’s office informing me that I had done especially well on my international entry.

 Apparently I did not only win a loan collection but also was internationally nominated for Commercial Photographer in Architecture.

The image entered was of Chinook Center Mall (located in Calgary AB) which was just newly renovated.

My assignment was to capture the South Center Renovation for the Construction Management Company - PCL Construction Management. The architects on this renovation were Gibbs Gage Architects.

Capturing this project took me a total of 5 nights and early mornings to complete and collect a set of images that would speak of the detail and craftsmanship of both the architects and construction company.

When I was done capturing South Center, I wanted to also capture an artistic piece that would be different yet still speak of what I saw in the building. This is the piece that made the loan collection and awarded me the nomination for International Commercial Photographer in Architecture.

I have also included more of my favorites of South Center Mall.

When I first entered Centennial Place to view what I was hired to capture - I was at awe at the craftsmanship of this project.

There was so much granite, limestone and curtain wall that stretched for hundreds of feet and between the three they were placed with such care and attention to detail. The lighting is motion censored and this building has high efficiency heating and cooling. It also contains a green roof with about 25-30% of its surface planted

Apparently the owners named this project in honor of Alberta's Centennial year.
