My dad is an architect. It was always so cool when I was a kid and my friends would come over and tell me how awesome our house was, to tell them that my dad designed it. And I loved driving around our town seeing the buildings he created. However, I had no idea the extent of it. This summer I was able to work with my dad on a few photography projects. I photographed two of his buildings and I also went through a bunch of his old slides and photos picking out the best photography for marketing use. As I looked through the slides, I saw so many buildings in my home town and Southern Idaho area that I had no idea were his. I was so impressed and proud! How cool is it to drive past your life’s work everyday?! Its so fun to get to know your parents as an adult. To see them not just as your parent, but a person.
This is a building he designed in Driggs, Idaho. Its the Teton Justice Center. I drove into town knowing it was on Main Street, but I hadn’t ever seen it so I wasn’t sure what I was looking for. But the second I saw it, I knew it was his building. He has such a unique and distinct esthetic. I’m a rookie at architecture photography and still have a lot to learn. I’ve done one other project, and I really enjoyed it. Its something I would love to learn more about and could really get into.
