Award-winning photographer, Bart Edson, photographs architecture, interiors, and luxury real estate for private and commercial clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
Bart grew up in Marin County, attending Terra Linda High School, then graduating from UC Davis, and has a deep connection to the San Francisco Bay Area and to Northern California. Today, he lives in the Sonoma wine country as does most of his extended family.
On every assignment, Bart arrives with a lifetime of photographic experience, having shot world-wide travel photography, wild American landscapes, and intimate portraiture for 25 years before starting his business specializing in architectural photography.
Bart’s talent for capturing light and ambiance to create epic imagery has been a defining passion for his adult life. This passion shines through in his architectural photography, and has attracted a wide audience throughout the industry.
With a strong sense of integrity and expertise, Bart views each project as a collaboration with his client. He carefully listens to his client's needs, and he shares his own expertise, with the end-goal of producing stunning imagery that will serve as powerful marketing tools for his client's business.
Bart approaches every job as an experienced creator of artistic and evocative images that do more than just convey information about a space—they evoke an emotional reaction and transmit a certain, nearly magical, sense of inspiration.
I love creating art. I've learned how to control my camera and lights to make images that please me and my clients . It is the tool and medium I create with.
I also love interacting with other people around a creative pursuit, such as making powerful, beautiful images.
I've been shooting architecture, interior design, and luxury real estate for 9 years. I'm personable and professional and I enjoy engaging with my clients. My clients aren't always exactly sure what they want, or how to get something they do want, and I like to be their consultant, taking their needs into account, and giving them my ideas based on my experience. I think my clients appreciate this and are happy to have an experienced collaborator to work with.
With my portrait and fashion shoots, I like to get my models to act out feelings, scenarios, words, etc. and to keep moving in some way to stay loose and spontaneous.
