Photography

Have camera. Will travel.

The best photography requires effort.

For years, Giles has packed up a camera and headed off for a photostroll — by car, on foot, even in a canoe. (And that’s a real camera, too, not a cell phone.) He’s traveled up and down the US East Coast, to the UK, and as far west as Texas, all in search of architecture and landscapes that would look great hanging on a wall . . . or used on a book cover.

Architecture Photography

Constructing the most detailed imagery
Morgan County Courthouse #6, 2022

Examined from someone who always aspired to be an architect — but who is too much an artist and not enough of an engineer — Giles’ first photographic love is architecture, architectural details, and detailed shots of buildings in meadows, forests, towns, and cities.

Landscape Photography

Mountaintop to seaside
Tennessee Mountains from Newfound Gap, 2018

From the coasts of Maine and 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 a beach paradise, Giles has specialized in the details that make up the whole.

For both architectural and landscape photographs, museum-quality prints are available for your enjoyment or gift-giving pleasure.

Custom Photography

Bespoke imagery for your project

Whether a specific location, object, or even — as in the image shown here — 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.
