by Christian Scully
We were thrilled to learn that Visnick & Caulfield Associates, along with Corderman & Company, Peabody Office, Union Office, Wright Architectural Millwork, Bernhardt Design and RDK Engineers, were awarded the 2016 IIDA New England Design Award for Best Office Design for 10,000 SF and Under Category. This was a very exciting project to photograph and it is always wonderful to be a part of a winning awards submission! Congratulations to all of our talented clients involved in this project and here's to the next award!
Dear Friends, Clients and Supporters,
With 2015 behind us, and already knee-deep in 2016, I wanted to take a moment to look back at the whirlwind that was last year. It began in January with moving the business to Providence, RI, where we are now proudly incorporated. The next twelve months were filled with travel, smiling clients old and new, photo shoots from the ground and the air, awards, publications, exciting prospects, and last but certainly not least: hard work and dedicated service. We strive to provide the best imagery and the best service, and that means being more than a photography provider. It means assisting with the backend work, helping marketing departments make magic happen with tireless coordination and communication, supporting web and graphic design on the behalf of our clients, actively seeking publication and awards opportunities to gain our clients exposure. It's no surprise to me that these efforts are working for both our clients and the Design Imaging Studios brand. I am immensely excited to keep the ball rolling in 2016 and help businesses in the A/E/C industry highlight their best work, showcase their brand and continue to grow.
Cheers to a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Shooting this contemporary home by William Masiello was an absolute joy.

How to Market Building Materials: Hiring a Professional Photographer to Display Products and Their Effects
by Christian Scully
When many people think about architecture, or buildings in general, they consider the finished product, the structure as a whole. To make that design work, however, and operate most efficiently and effectively, building materials are sourced from manufacturers around the world. Precisely designed metals, high efficiency glass, strong plastics, specially treated woods, brick and concrete, all come in endless forms of railings, sidings, windows, skylights, roofing materials, floors, doors, ducts and dimmers.
Though these products may not be the focus of attention to passers-by, or even seen for that matter, they require just as much, if not more marketing and advertising by the manufacturers. They are not always the sexiest of products, but regardless of material, form and function, need to grab the attention of architects, designers, builders and contractors. Online, in sourcebooks, regional and national building publications, trade shows and direct mail, manufacturers spend countless hours and resources marketing their building materials.
"Building Materials Need Love Too"
With all of their efforts, imagery is always at the core of marketing. A badly lit, low quality, poorly exposed and quickly snapped photograph, taken on-site with an iPhone by the Project Manager is not going to do the materials justice. Without professional photography, manufacturers are relying upon material specifications alone to sway potential customers. That may be all they need... but there are thousands of material products available in the marketplace. Building materials need love too: they need professional photography.
Recently, Duro-Last Roofing, based in Michigan hired Design Imaging Studios to photograph their new line of skylights and roofing materials, which were used on an office building in Andover, MA. The task was to capture the skylights and products used on top of the roof, and then capture their effects on the building's interior. The result is a dynamic series of photographs displaying the quality and beautiful lighting effects possible with the Duro-Last Roofing skylights.

With this beautiful Spring weather [finally] arriving and bringing those bright sunshiny days, I would be lying if I said I didn't want to be outside. I love interior photography, but Father Winter surely overstayed his welcome and hung around for nearly half a year!!
So if photography keeps me indoors these days, it might as well be for a great reason. Doug Masters, of Masters Touch Design Build, provided such a reason.
Nestled in shade of forest in Norfolk, MA, this lovely space really caught my eye and held my attention. Sturdy wooden beams, a warm wooden living room, bright pops of color in the sitting room, wonderfully simple cabinetry and ample counter space in the kitchen and then a naturally lit spa room with a built in jacuzzi on the back of the house? There are so many different aspects to the design I don't know how they all work together, but when homeowners have such a fun vision and Masters Touch has 18 years of experience and the people to make it happen, the result is certainly photo worthy.
I sat down to chat with Doug after the shoot to learn more about his company. Check out this short video and view some of our favorite still images below. Then go outside and enjoy the weather!! But come back soon :)
