Unique Architectural Buildings in Portland
Here are some of the most architecturally interesting buildings in Portland. Each project has its unique charm, character, and narrative.
The Wieden+Kennedy Building
This adaptive re-use project transformed an old cold storage warehouse into the global headquarters for the Wieden+Kennedy advertising agency. Its open, collaborative space design, topped off with an iconic “nest” is a testament to modern design’s creativity.
The Pittock Mansion
This early 20th-century mansion tells a story of Portland’s history. It beautifully blends Victorian and French Renaissance architectural styles, creating an enchanting environment filled with delicate details that never cease to inspire my work.
One Main Place
This 20-story skyscraper located in Downtown Portland is a shining example of mid-century International style. It represents a period of optimism and growth and serves as a stunning background for corporate and business photography.
The Yard Building
One of Portland’s newest and most distinctive high rises, this angular, glass-covered building is a testament to Portland’s growth and the contemporary movement in architecture.
The Central Library
A Renaissance-style architectural gem in the heart of Portland. It’s not just about books – the grand staircase, the extensive woodwork, and the period lighting fixtures all play a part in telling its story.

I specialize in a variety of architectural photography types including commercial, residential, historical buildings, restaurants, corporate spaces, and more. My services also extend to interior design photography, capturing the beauty and functionality of indoor spaces.
Do you only work in Portland, or do you travel for projects?
While I’m based in Seattle, I frequently work in Portland and am familiar with the distinctive architectural landscape here, I am certainly willing to travel for a project. The cost of travel can be discussed and included in our agreement.
How long does a typical photo shoot take?
The duration of a photo shoot largely depends on the size and complexity of the project. A small restaurant or individual room may take a few hours, while a large commercial building or extensive property could take a full day or more. I always aim to work efficiently while ensuring the highest quality of work.

Weather can be unpredictable, especially here in Portland. I’m adept at using different weather conditions to create compelling images. However, if the weather is particularly unsuitable for the planned shoot, we can reschedule for another date.
How do you deliver the final images, and how long does it take?
All images are professionally retouched and delivered digitally. The turnaround time typically ranges from 1-2 weeks, depending on the project’s size and scope. I understand the importance of deadlines and always strive to deliver the images in a timely manner.
Can you help with staging and preparing the spaces for photography?
While my primary role is as a photographer, I am more than willing to provide advice on staging and preparing the space to ensure the best possible images. If your project requires extensive staging or props, I can recommend professional stylists who specialize in this area.
