Shooting for Success: Taking Tesselle's Photography to the Next Level

Karin Jeske

A sunny day in Copenhagen, Denmark

One of the unexpected joys of managing Tesselle has been finding ways to incorporate my lifelong love for photography to help customers envision how our products will look in their spaces. In particular, I've thoroughly enjoyed meeting our customers and photographing their installations of our breeze blocks and cement tiles.

However, this endeavor presents its challenges. Sometimes it's the lighting, other times it's an inconveniently parked car, and sometimes the space doesn't allow me to capture the full image, even with my wide-angle lens. 

Beyond navigating the minor challenges of photography, I've grown to appreciate the invaluable perspective that professional photographers lend to our projects. While I enjoy capturing images myself, I've discovered that their expertise adds depth and richness to our visual narrative, highlighting the nuances of our products in diverse spaces. This realization underscores that there's always more to learn in the art of photography.

As a result, I've been on the lookout for an in-person photography class that concentrates on the built envrionment. Having attended a Santa Fe Workshops class over 20 years ago with Eddie Soloway that focused on landscape photography, I was excited to learn about an  Architectural Photography class taking place there this summer, led by Nick Merrick. The catch is that I have to submit a portfolio of 20 architectural images to be accepted.

After scrolling through endless photos taken over the years with my DSLR Canon and Nikon cameras plus a few that I really like from my iPhone, I've compiled the "best of" selection here. Wish me luck!
