52 galleriesI have been photographing architecture professionally in the Roaring Fork Valley since 2008. My way of working is to use available light, being at the right place at the right time. Architects and lighting designers spend a great deal of time lighting the space. My technique is built around honoring those efforts. The way I approach a building photographically is shaped by the needs of the client, and my 35 years working in architecture.

5 galleriesOur family moved to Telluride in 1990. After a year working for an architect, I started WATTS Design Telluride. It was always a challenge designing in a town that is a National Historic Landmark. Very strict guidelines were enacted to preserve the historic character of the town. My clients appreciated my desire to not emulate Victorian forms and detailing, but to create more contemporary designs, while respecting Telluride's historic forms.
7 galleriesI started WATTS Design in 1985, in Cardiff by the Sea, Ca. Cardiff was a sleepy little surf town. Most of the 50'X100' lot's were on fairly steep terrain, with a street above and alley below. Spanish Colonial was the rage then, something I was not going to do. So I chose as my inspiration the work of architect Irving Gill, who practiced in San Diego in the early 1900's. Most of his projects were simple, unadorned structures. They were modern yet felt uniquely Californian. I ended up designing 11 projects here from 1985 -1990, and one last home in 2006 after our family had moved to Carbondale, Co.
