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!

2fORM Architecture - Portraits

Local Architect Richard Shugar of 2fORM Architecture called on me to provide new "environmental" portraits for their marketing last week, and I was happy to help!  2fORM is conveniently located about 50 yards from the studio so it was an easy trip down Lawrence Street to accommodate.  Below are some of my favorite images from the shoot.  Enjoy!

If you need something similar for your own organization please don't hesitate to contact me at info@erikbishoff.com or 541-543-9322.  Cheers!

Gray Magazine - "Studio Visit" Tearsheets

GRAY Magazine is a newer design magazine for the Pacific Northwest based out of Seattle Washington.  I was contacted by GRAY to to capture images for their "studo visit" section in which they showcase the work of an architect, designer, or artist in every issue.  My images, below, appeared in #19 where I captured the work of a pair of University of Oregon interior design professors, Wonhee Jeong Arndt and John Arndt of Eugene, Oregon.  It was a real treat!

Grain Elevators – An Architecture of Primary Forms

Photo by Dennis Galloway

I love photo typologies.  I love architecture photo typologies.  I love industrial architecture photo typologies.  I love the work of Bernd and Hilla Becher.  (I wish I'd thought of this.)  Cant wait to see it!

Dennis Galloway will be displaying his work at The Octagon, AIA-SWO’s Center For Architecture, on January 27, 2015-February 27, 2015.

Grain Elevators – An Architecture of Primary Forms is a provocative look at the stark, logical, and elegant combination of simple shapes and forms that dot the agricultural centers of Oregon.

Please plan on stopping by our CFA Octagon on Tuesday, January 27 to see the complete collection.

Contact Annie Loe for any details regarding Gallery Hours for The Octagon.

Hospitality Photography - Inn At The 5th - Eugene, Oregon

DOUBLE-KING ROOM

A recent round of photos from The Inn At The 5th boutique hotel in downtown Eugene.  The Inn at the 5th has a variety of room and suite styles to choose from. Unlike many of its competitors most of the rooms are unique in furnishing, floorplan and design.  The double king is the closest to a "Traditional" hotel room that the Inn has to offer. 

 The challenge, as with many hotel rooms, is to show all of the amenities in just one or two images. The client was provided with several final photos... these two were my favorite of the bunch.

Thanks again to Richard Sugar and the good folks over at 2fORM Architecture!  Their recent submission to ArchitectreLover.com brought one of my favorite images of 2014 to the front page.

The question is, at what point does architecture’s potential to improve human life become lost because of its inability to connect with actual humans?

Inn at the 5th - Before & After

BEFORE

BEFORE

The original image, straight out of camera, was very washed due to the bright sunny weather.  The valet station was also lost in shadow.  While I can't control the weather, I can change its appearance in Photoshop. 

For the final image I did a good deal of color correction and brightened many of the dark areas.  I also straightened the tower, removed the distracting shadows in the foreground, and removed the parked car.  Success!
