Personal Statement

Eric Oxendorf is a nationally-known architectural photographer. Over thirty years of experience provides clients with his knowledge of light and how to capture it on either film or digital formats. Former Kodak test photographer.

There are several reasons for his reputation for spectacular photographs. He is patient, waiting for the elements of light and nature to be in sync before taking the photograph. He is visionary, looking for the unique angles and characteristics of a building which will create a dramatic image.

He relies on and follows his instincts, and acts on his emotional and educated impulses. His self-motivation makes him very productive and insightful. The focus of his work is to make a poetic statement of the projects he is commissioned to photograph. 
Awards and Recognition
Recently published "The Milwaukee City Hall-An American Architectural Masterpiece of the German Renaissance Style".  Also published in "The Art of Seeing", "Domes of America", "Live/Work", "Mary Nohl-Inside and Out", and several children's books.  Contact the photographer.
