CLIENT: Greg Hnedak
PROJECT: Mountain Retreat
This project was produced in collaboration with the designer-owner, a long-time client. Photographing his mountain retreat in Mountain Home, Arkansas topped off a thirty-year working relationship. Having the opportunity to coordinate the scenes based on the optimum sunlight was a rare and pleasurable experience. Making four separate trips over the course of a year allowed us to capture ideal moments for both the interior and exterior environments.
Regardless of how far or fast imaging technology advances to improve quality, there will always be two basic ingredients necessary to achieve substance in any image; composition and light. Once a composition is established, the essence of the entire experience hinges on the light. The ability to see, create and control light, consistently carving three-dimensional experiences from a two dimensional medium, remains the true measure of any photographer.
