GETTING YOU PUBLISHED 1-2-3
1_I PHOTOGRAPH your architecture.
Thanks to my love of Architecture, I have photographed and written articles about the built environment for more than 20 years. Starting out, I used a 4 x 5 medium-format sheet film camera that required discipline and attention to detail which have followed me into the digital realm. My photography has propelled the publication of umpteen projects that have garnered numerous regional and national awards. Overall, my work has been published over 200 times in more than 50 hard copy publications, including the New York Times, Architectural Record, and Abitare.
Let me get your work published as I did for Kohn Peterson Fox, Pei Cobb Freed, Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney, et al.
2_I PLACE your project in fine publications.
Because I regularly contribute to excellent publications around the world such as Abitare, I get to work closely with the editors and know their editorial calendars for the next 6 months to a year. Also, since 2010, I have served as the U.S.A. Architectural Editor of the internationally distributed Design Diffusion News (Milan) and OFARCH (Milan). Check out examples of my numerous published projects here.
3_I WRITE an article commissioned by the editors.
For more than 20 years, editors have asked me to write narratives that complement my photography. Editors say they appreciate that I have spent one or more days on-site, photographing and thoroughly getting to know a project, frequently alongside the architect.
My Architectural background, which includes my education (Master of Architecture from Syracuse University [Firenze]; Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Arizona) as well as my professional studio work experience (L.A., Italy and Architectural Marketing in NYC), combines a unique skill set enabling me to capture descriptive and powerful imagery of your project, worthy of regional, national and international publication.
Since I am an ex-New York City marketing and public relations person (Robert Gray Architects), I also work with your firm's communications leadership to craft an article that highlights essential design elements that need to be covered. Typically, I interlace the article with quotes based on my interview with the architect or architecture team. In addition, editors have asked me to write articles about projects that have already been photographed. They will contact me for my perspective about an important project that they have previously slated to be published.
