JC Buck is an American architectural photographer currently living in Denver, Colorado. His photography has helped his clients present their portfolios, acquire new projects and win design awards.
JC is driven by his curiosity of architecture, his interest in photography and communications. He is constantly working on improving his craft, acquiring a better understanding of his subjects and sharing the stories of his photographs to his growing social media following.
JC is fascinated with documenting architecture. As he travels throughout the United States and abroad, JC photographs and studys all kinds of architecture, from world class cultural and civic buildings to physics defying commercial and residential skyscrapers, built by the world's most renowned architects, engineers, and developers. He says, "we are living in exceptional times when it comes to the built environment," and that he is visually and intellectually drawn by the buildings being designed and erected around the globe.
This interest in architecture, JC recalls, began as a young child riding in his Dad's car passing through the old cities of Europe, while living in Brussels, Belgium to the first time he experienced the striking skyscrapers of American cities where he has lived in Minnesota, Massachusetts, Florida and Colorado.
JC's images have been published in Arch Daly, Architectural Record, Contemporist, Architecture MN Magazine, Modern In Denver, Colorado Homes & Lifestyle, LUXE Magazine, Interior Design Magazine, Swiss Pearl Architecture, The Denver Post, Denver Business Journal, Maxim Magazine, Wall Street Journal, Curbed and Atomic Ranch magazine.
Available for commissions worldwide, JC works relatively light and efficient, obeying the sun, soaking in as much available light as possible, working tethered for critical review with interior designer clients, while working more freely on larger architectural projects. His style combines the traditional, meticulous work flow of the working architectural photographers he has learned from, establishing each primary shot with intention on a tripod, supplemented by loosening up, ditching the tripod, shouldering two cameras and "free-styling" as he puts it. This dual approach to documentation opens up his creativity and eyes enabling JC to create truly unique and compelling photographs.
