Description Colorized Infrared Photograph of a mangrove tree in the water near Key Largo Florida. This image was captured with medium format camera and black and white Infrared Film. The image was then selectively colorized. Please note: Infrared photos have a glowing affect and grainy texture thus rendering a surreal appearance.

”Our mutual love of photography and complementary skills led us to pursue our dream of working together. Our work is show in public and private locations throughout the San Francisco bay area and around the world.
Our images have been captured with Medium and Large format film cameras using Infrared and traditional films. We also shoot with a high resolution digital SLR that has been modified for Infrared-Only capture.
Our Color and Black & White photography started with traditional methods and dark room techniques and evolved with the quickly changing world of digital photography. We feel that we now have the best tools available to create the art we envision.
To achieve our unique Colorized images, we use a variety of traditional panchromatic films, infrared films and digital capture, then apply our imaging techniques to selectively color all or part of the composition. The amount of color applied ranges from very subtle up to the more saturated appearance of a traditional hand painted photograph. The end result is a surreal representation of a real location.
Our background in Commercial/Architectural photography led to our love of historic architecture and the mixture of botanical elements with manmade structures. We find these photogenic scenes in our favorite locations such as, Paris, the South of France, the US, and especially California. Also appreciating the untouched landscapes of the Southwest, we regularly visit Arizona, Utah and New Mexico to explore the bounty of colors and textures in the desert.
More recently, we have been residing on the East Coast and are working on several new images from Charleston and the Low Country of South Carolina.
