Bio I received my degree in Architecture and practiced as a licensed architect in the Midwest for several years prior to settling in the San Francisco Bay area. Working here with large and small firms, I managed diverse residential, academic, healthcare, and commercial projects, including Levi's Plaza in San Francisco. With a passion for both photography and architecture, I launched Robert Canfield Architectural Photography. Since 1991, I have been providing effective images of the built environment for architects and their technical consultants, engineers, builders, and developers at locations across the country. Architecture and architectural photography are driven by very similar principles: both are shaped and informed by light, and both aspire to the highest level of art. Yet, both are collaborative forms of art, requiring great technical expertise to meet very specific and practical requirements for a client, within a budget. I know the language of architecture and the voice of light. I understand the many issues which my clients face, and am experienced with the flexible, often sensitive procedures required on the jobsite. It is my conviction that, as in all design, good communication is the heart of the interactive photography process. On every shoot we explore the building, review the program and goals, and together find creative ways to make compelling images for the intended purpose. I greatly enjoy this process, and value the strong relationships developed with my clients over the years. Technical Light, contrast, and the special challenges of photographing buildings have never changed. But as we all know, the tools for doing so have changed dramatically. Digital capture, using a range of precision camera formats, now allows us to produce more images per day, with little or no supplemental lighting, and with less intrusion on the building occupants. More importantly, we do so with far greater creative control, exploiting natural light opportunities which were impossible before. This efficient shift, however, demands superb post-production following the shoot. In the long professional collaboration with Eyeland Digital, we have developed an uncommon level of expertise in color control, compositing, and retouching, which provides custom image output to meet the unique needs of each client. Publications My work has appeared in the monograph publications of major architects, including Foster & Partners, Zimmer Gunsul Frasca, and Mario Botta. Other publications include Architectural Record, A+U, Domus, Interior Design, Dwell, ENR, Contract, R+D, Heathcare Design, and numerous trade and award magazines.
