Architectural Photography by Brad Anderson

Brad Anderson – Architectural Photographer Profile

Brad Anderson has been on the forefront of architectural photography for over two decades. Inspired by his love for the artistic expression of architecture at an early age, it continues to drive his passion today.

Brad became a serious amateur photographer in his third year of college in Omaha, NE. A few years after graduation, he began taking formal classes in photography and realized he had the skill and passion for a professional career. Following three years of postgraduate work in photography, Brad joined the US Navy as a Photographer’s Mate. It was shortly after his time with the Navy ended in 1997 that he founded Architectural Photography Inc.

The loyalty of Brad’s clientele reflects his approach to every photo shoot. “Collaboration is key. I strive to produce powerful images that position my client’s brand as a cut above the rest. I also believe that it is crucial for the architectural photographer to really understand the structure and story behind what the architect is striving to depict. That’s where the magic happens,” states Anderson.

Every architectural photographer has a unique style. Using one photographer for your projects can bring a consistent look and feel to your brand and your marketing. “My compositions aim to expose the designer’s intention,” says Anderson. “My goal is to interpret the architect’s vision in a two-dimensional image that communicates the feeling of being inside the space itself.”

Post-Photo Shoot Editing

Skilled, post-shoot editing can make great images extraordinary. Brad Anderson also offers professional digital enhancement and retouching of clients’ photographic images. With over two decades of Adobe Photoshop experience, anything is possible. From removing unwanted artifacts to enhancing and retouching the image, Anderson offers his clients some of the best post-production work in the industry.

“I believe everything has beauty. I have photographed everything from skyscrapers in Boston to tile installation in Salt Lake City and I look to create compelling images in everything in between. Everything has its own beauty. I have even made a common gas heater on a construction site look like a celestial black hole,” laughs Anderson.

Markets Served

Brad’s architectural photography projects have garnered him extensive experience in many business sectors including:

Over his 23 year career, Anderson has received local, regional and national recognition from AIA, ASLA and ASID. His work has appeared all over the world both in marketing and promotional pieces.
