A Brief Bio
Jeff’s formal training in commercial photography and photo illustration provides a distinct advantage in his approach and implementation of all creative projects. Jeff expanded into graphic design and art direction shortly after graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography in the mid-80s. Since that time, he has worked both independently and in-house as art and creative director for companies such as Ameristar, Harrah’s and Bally Technologies. Jeff has received numerous awards, most recently for his special niche in exterior photography — which he calls “WOWexteriors™.” Jeff even dabbled in small-town politics for several years with a stint on the city council and then as Mayor of Colfax, California. Now based in Portland, Oregon, Jeff travels and works with clients throughout the U.S. and Canada.

I don't blog! But I do occasionally post images and blurbs from interesting projects and travels:
You need more than a standard architectural shot of your property or company headquarters to create a lasting impression. A WOWexterior is the signature image essential to help successfully market the character of your organization. Your building's exterior facade, like your logo and branding, is your face to the world.
Jeff has developed this specialty over 25 years photographing casino-resort properties of all types. His process brings together the art of capture and control of light, with a proprietary post production process that results in a distinctive final image with extraordinary impact. Jeff's technique can be even more beneficial to properties challenged by obstructed views or less-than-ideal layouts.
A WOWexterior will provide your property with the memorability it deserves. We can provide a complete estimate based on your specific needs.
Sample Galleries (more than an online portfolio)
Portfolios are often like resumes; overly embellished and not based in reality. The purpose of this collection is to show not only award winning picks but also to share ideas and real work examples that have produced tangible results for clients. A mixture of original images and finished layouts are included.
