Erik Bishoff Photography in Fine Homebuilding Magazine

Late last year Fine Homebuilding came to me seeking images of a recently completed home that I photographed earlier that year.  The home is a wholly unique one here in Eugene-Springfield as the first and only LEED Platinum/Net-Zero/Passive Houses in valley.  (Perhaps in the state?)  The building is the home of University of Oregon Landscape Architecture Professor Mark Gillem and is a sort of "testing ground" for sustainable technologies.

Being a small part of this project in providing services to Professor Gillem, Fine Homebuilding Magazine, & Six Degrees Construction has been an absolute privilege.  If all goes well I may be returning to the site to capture some images for the window manufacturer later this year.  I would look forward to applying some of the new technologies and techniques I've acquired over the last 12 months if-and-when I get to revisit this project. More to come!

Product Photography - Clothing Accessories

I received a call from a client just two nights ago in a rush to have some of their work photographed for a craft show.  The images had to be ready in just two days.  We scheduled a quick meeting and discussed the handmade "product" and contest requirements the following afternoon.  Several hours later the images were ready to go.  

The contest requirements were for an "overall shot" and a "detail shot" of each product.  The slider above is of four separate images laid side-by-side for illustration.  It turned out to be a fun tetraptych.

If they win any awards, I'll be sure to let you know!

Real Estate Photography - Eugene's South Hills

The interiors aren't ready to be photographed but the exterior was clean and ready to go yesterday so I snapped a couple images for my client to use in the upcoming issue of Eugene Magazine.  Photos taken for David Holland of Barnhart Associates. (more to come!)

The house as very attractive curb-appeal with some nice landscaping and a very appealing scale for a 4,500 sq/ft house on a hill.  I wanted to make the fireplace a feature so I put it front-and-center.

I wanted to give David and the designers at Barnhart Associates Real Estate an alternative view so I pulled back and moved around the side of the house a bit.  This revealed a bit more of the homes actual size while better illustrating the distance between this house and its neighbors.  This also provides a glimpse of the view to the west.

Furniture Photography & Product Photography

Local hobbyist James Tandrow (who seems more-than-a-little-bit-humble to call himself just a hobbyist) created this shaker-style blanket chest as a wedding gift and needed a photographer to capture it visually for his records and for submission into Woodworker Magazine.  I was thrilled to have had the opportunity to direct my studio lights at this gorgeous piece of custom furniture.  The camera, as you can see, really ate up the details. Wow!
