Architecture Photography

Constructing the most detailed imagery

Examined from someone who always aspired to be an architect, but is too much an artist and not enough of an engineer, Giles’ first photographic love is buildings, towns, and cities. From his current home in Georgia to locales all over the Eastern United States — and a few in England — he’s enjoyed few things more than exploring with camera in-hand, so all can share the passion.

Landscape Photography

Mountaintop to seaside

From the coasts of Maine to Florida to the peaks of the Blue Ridge, the Eastern United States has been a photographic playground for more than fifteen years. Whether the texture of tree bark, fields of flowers, mountain paths, or beach paradises, Giles has specialized in the details that make up the whole. Prints and a variety of merchandise are available for your enjoyment or gift-giving pleasure.

Custom Photography

Bespoke imagery for your project

Whether a specific location, object, or even personality, projects sometimes require individualized photography. Giles excels at joining custom imagery with book design, graphic design, or promotional materials. Take your project to the next level with customization.
