    Glen Graves
    Commercial Photographer

    Glen attended the Brooks Institute in the mid 1970s where he learned that technical excellence in the craft was the only acceptable standard; and with slow and expensive experience of working with 4×5 film it was also a necessity. During the 1980’s Glen successfully developed his career as a professional location photographer and has since worked on commercial projects with Ford Motors Co, General Motors, Chrysler, the Lear Corporation, the NY Port Authority and US Air. His has photographed projects for Architectural clients national wide and CM firms such as Tutor Perini, the LedCorp Group and Kiewit Corporation. Architectural / Commercial clients have included Formica, Delta Faucets, Walker Zanger Tile, Ann Sacks Tile, Kohler, Wolf, Anderson Windows, Pella Windows, Marvin Windows, Kohler, Sub Zero and every major kitchen cabinet company including SieMatic. He has been published internationally and in hundreds of brochures and U.S. publications such as the Wine Spectator, the NY Times, Architectural Digest and the Robb Report. Digital has reshaped this art form, he has found that with the new generation of digital cameras, applying the craft skills developed after three decades of working with film and endless hours working with Photoshop, it is possible to can create truly stunning images. In 2007 he created what has become PhotoArts California and now also teaches a wide range of private in person and live streaming Zoom video classes designed to meet the needs and goals of the aspiring photographer/artist student. As Itzhak Perlman said: “If you want to become great at something teach it.” That is absolutely true for the art of photography whether it is in the craft, the art/design or post production.
