A FARMER’S INGENUITY – AN ARCHITECT’S EYE
Raised on a farm in northeast South Dakota, a place named for every direction except the proverbial old west work ethic which defines it, principal photographer Brandon Stengel holds a Master’s Degree in Architecture from the University of Minnesota. His approach to photography is based not only on a farmer’s ingenuity, but also an advanced understanding of design, space, and the technical requirements of construction.
For nearly 10 years, Stengel served as project designer and marketing director for a Twin Cities architectural firm. In this role, he learned to recognize good design, what it takes to create it, and how it is best represented in marketing communications. While he always seeks to create beautiful and unique photographs, he is at the same time conscientious about the needs of the design, marketing, and production teams who will be using them.
