Eric Oxendorf is a nationally-known architectural photographer. Over thirty years of experience provides clients with his knowledge of light and how to capture it on either film or digital formats. Although well versed in digital manipulation, extreme digital work is out of the aethestic realm of his desired end-effect. Reality, and the subjects relation to nature and the environment, are just one of his artistic goals. Eric has a degree and training in art, not architecture. There are several reasons for his reputation for spectacular photographs. He is patient, waiting for the elements of light and nature to be in sync before taking the photograph. He is visionary, looking for the unique angles and characteristics which will create a dramatic image. He relies on and follows his instincts, acts on his emotional and educated impulses but with his knowledge of planetary changes and weather, provides images the are USEFUL to the client-not just artwork. His self-motivation makes him very productive and insightful. The focus of his work is to make a poetic statement of the subject he wished to photograph.
