Frank L. Blum Construction hired The House of NyghtFalcon to photograph the completed Wake Forest University Reynolds Gymnasium Addition and Transformation Project. That included:
♦ The basketball courts on the second floor.
♦ The sitting area in the entrance.
♦ The climbing wall.
♦ The conditioning areas.
♦ The exterior.
NyghtFalcon met with marketing people from Frank L. Blum, the general contractor, in order to determine how the project would be implemented. Once a plan was in place:
♦ On two different days, we returned to the site to photograph different parts of the project as they were being completed.
♦ Working around groups touring the new facility, so we had to coordinate with them and work to optimize their time and ours.
♦ There were other issues we had to manage as well – for example, most power outlets were not working, there was construction continuing outside the players lounge.
♦ We also had to time where we worked to the position of the sun in relationship to some of the glass walls in order to ensure that the emotional experience of the space could be “captured.”
♦ We used strobes to ensure that the color, detail, and contrast of the space was conveyed in the images we created.
The images we created convey the beauty of the space as we experienced it.
