Typically, when I am finishing a piece, I reach out to my friend, photographer David Glasofer, and ask him when I can bring it to his studio for photographing. I learned a long time ago that my skills are not with a camera. I can take a quick snapshot but when I want an image to really show texture and depth, I need a professional. David has worked with me long enough that when I say something like, "the red looks weird," he knows what I mean and how to fix it. When I finished this window, I didn't ask if I could bring it to his studio because I wanted to capture the way the window looks in the setting so I asked him to come with me to the home in Farmingdale, NJ and photograph it on site. His image captures the oasis like setting of the deep, soaker tub, the mermaids all around, and the way the stained glass window completes the scene. Because many of my stained glass installations are in private homes, getting a professional photograph is so important so I can share the finished product with people who otherwise wouldn't see it. These days, everyone has a digital camera but when the image really matters, a professional photographer is essential.
