Why shoot in the early evening? Because buildings tend to come alive when the interior light reaches a similar brightness to the exterior light. A fantastic look for marketing materials and portfolios.
I met Architect Jenna Fribley during my time as a grad student at the University of Oregon. Jenna was also attending. She's now an adjunct professor at the UO and co-founder of Campfire Collaborative in my home town of Springfield Oregon. Her work is impressive. This project, a kitchen remodel in Eugene Oregon, was one of the first projects I photographed for Jenna. (my photos are the "after" images)
As the smoke from wildfires increases, making exterior photography impossible, I've shifted my focus to a number of interior projects. One of my favorites this year was the Jones + Roth remodel by 2fORM Architecture.
Jones + Roth
"A brand new home for a local accounting firm with a welcoming reception area, dramatic lighting, and warm wood tones bringing a fresh feeling to this office space. Employees now can enjoy a more open office filled with daylight and the occasional pops of color."

It's been another VERY busy summer and the work keeps coming. I wanted to share a highly-anticipated project here in Eugene. Open for business tomorrow (Thursday August 17) just in time for the solar eclipse. The roof deck and bar (more images coming soon) are open to the public. It's a very cool space.
I've been photographing the Hyatt Place Eugene for a few days now. Literally dozens of images to edit.
Thanks to Chambers Construction and Studio C Architecture for the opportunity!
McKenzie River Modern
Six Degrees Construction
Another fun project by Six Degrees Construction. A modern home on the McKenzie river. Humble in size with beautiful interior details. It's going to look even better when the landscape matures. Looking forward to photographing the dusk exteriors later in the year. Thanks to Rick, Dave & Co. for the opportunity!
It's tough to shoot architecture exteriors during the winter months. That being said, sometimes the weather does cooperate. The added color from a winter sun, low in the sky, does wonders. If you don't mind naked trees and dampness it can be quite beautiful.

Another benefit of working out of Studio 385 is the flexibility of this amazing space we work in. I was able to take advantage of the full height of the studio for the good folks from Sushi Tower who were looking for a way to show their product in use in a new and creative way. Capturing the popularity of the snappy "top-down" videos by Tasty (featured on Buzzfeed) was a cinch in our double-height space.Read More
It's that time of year again. The local chapter of the American Institute of Architects will be displaying work from local Architects in the annual People's Choice Awards. The awards will be displayed at the City of Eugene's October Art Walk on October 7th at The Barn Light.
(more info below)
The gallery below contains display boards from recent award participants and award winners who used Erik Bishoff Photography for their project image-making. Please be sure to click through them all. There's some wonderful work going on in the Eugene/Springfield area. It was very much my pleasure to have had an opportunity to get these buildings in front of my lens. I'm looking forward to seeing more of my images on display this year!
