Airport Engineering

Been out shooting for one of my engineering clients this spring at a couple small regional west coast airports. The first project was an expansion of the terminal in Redding, CA, with changes to the plan and design of the original structure as well. The second was the construction of an air traffic control tower at the Aurora State airport, near Wilsonville, OR. Had some beautiful light for both assignments. Almost too serene for the control tower – maybe we needed a stormy sky and some overcaffienated, stressed-out FAA air traffic control staff in there to make it more like what I envision for the setting. There are a few select images from each project, mostly chasing light around sunrise & sunset for the exterior shots, with some interior photography as well. Many thanks to all the people who helped in arranging production and access for these.

Website Redesign, Still Portfolio Refresh, New Video Reel!

We’re happy to announce the redesign of mgvphoto.com with the first, and long overdue refresh in four years.  The entire site was remade to better illustrate the broad range of the commercial  photography and video production services we provide.  Lots of new work to share, including serval images from engineering and construction assignments and a new gallery dedicated to aerial work.  The lifestyle / portrait and the architecturally focused built environment galleries also have lots of new images.  There’s a preview of an upcoming mixed media collaboration in the personal work gallery.  On the video side, there’s a new demo reel, and featured projects from Vimeo ported over for faster viewing. More to come soon, we’re working on getting some recent infrared work, and a gallery of Portland’s new Tilikum Bridge online.
