I make Art out of Your Art.

We live in a visual age. Attention is caught by the image and contained by the content. Everyone can take a photo, not everyone can create an image that sells an idea. Your building, space or thing needs specialized photography.

You've come to the right place.

My name is Brad Hill. I specialize in Architectural and Commercial Photography. I am a Fully Accredited member of the 'Professional Photographers of Canada' and a Member of the 'Greater Vancouver Home Builders Association'.

Let me make 2D Art out of your 3D Art!

Specialist Interior, Exterior and Product Photography for Architects, Interior Designers, Builders, Landscape Architects, Restaurants, Bars, Wineries, Conference Centers, Annual Reports and much more.

A Thirst for Photos. 

 

Prior to becoming a photographer I was a Bar and Restaurant manager. I worked at the famous 'The Ivy' in London, England, managed 1 English Pub/B&B and 1 massive English Sport Pub, worked at the Banff Springs Hotel, managed the Apre Ski Bar at Lake Louise and managed Bars in Melbourne, Australia.

Also, as the sole photographer, I have had two coffee table books published show-casing Melbourne's Bar and Restaurant scene.

I know the industry, I know how service periods works, I know how to stay out of the way of chefs, I know how to sell a bar and restaurant, I know how to make them look good.

Food Photography

 

As I mentioned in the Restaurant section above, I have been lucky enough to work in some pretty nice restaurants and I have met and worked with my share of chefs. I would be a chef in a minute if I didn't have to go through the very real pain of becoming one. 

I'm not going to get all 'Kitchen Confidential' here but I'm some how drawn to the genuine precision, finesse, discipline and multifaceted creativity that emerges from a good kitchens' rolling boil of anarchy, chaos and at times depravity.

My time in the trenches literally working under the armpits of greatness informs and inspires my photography of food.

Vintage Photography

 

I'll take photos of wineries year round... who wouldn't... the photos pretty much take themselves. That said vintage is the best time of year. Pickers in the vines, some leaves starting to turn, winery in overdrive crushing, macerating, punching-down, barreling... so many opportunities for action.

As the lead photographer for the annual 'Wineries of Victoria' magazine (Australia) for 5 years I have seen many types of winery operations from massive factories where volume is key to family hobby farms that produce really personal and unique wines in barrels you can count on one hand and everything in-between.

I like to shoot wineries in a documentary style, I think it lends well to a feeling that the wine is coming from a genuine, real place. That said I can shoot in a more polished commercial style too especially if you have that style of cellar-door and hospitality operation.

A Consistent, Quality Folio 

 

A significant percentage of my work comes from clients who have a magazine or marketing deadline... yesterday. I'm pretty good at quick turn-arounds but doing it this way is kind of like approaching a builder in October and wanting a finished house by Christmas! Not the best way of doing things and certainly not the cheapest.

Why not have a well rounded folio of images on file and ready to go? Build the shoot fees into the job and get every job shot, book the photography the day the job is finished. My best rates are for repeat work... if you commit to a certain number of shoots per year the pricing becomes a no brainer.

The below photos of the main living areas of 4 homes were taken for the same builder (David Norton Builders) over the period of a bit over a year. The shooting style, lighting and angle of each image is consistent so when they are used together online or in print they feel balanced.

Tailored Industry Award Photography

 

First question... Yes, the photos shot for Industry Awards come with the copyright to use in other marketing too... 2 birds 1 stone.

It is a big job to enter most industry awards... lots of forms to fill out and descriptions of project features to be written and decisions to be made. Let me take care of the photography part. 

You name the Industry Award and I'll take care of the photography requirements... you don't need to worry about formats, file sizes, file naming... I'll even upload them to the competition if I can. I'll shoot specifically with the Award category(ies) in mind so the photos match your descriptions perfectly.

The below photos were part of a package that won Orana Kitchens several national awards in the CMA Awards.
