About / Clients

Architectural and commercial photographer Dave Clough is fascinated with images that tell a story. Whatever his subject, he seeks to capture a visual narrative, focusing not only on exteriors, interiors and other elements of the built environment – but also on each structure’s unique character, life, and energy. He constantly chases light and shadows to ensure that his camera is in hand at decisive moments.

Born and raised in Maine, Dave studied architectural photography with Brian Vanden Brink at Maine Media Workshops. Dave’s experience in building and carpentry gives him a craftsman’s insights into the elements and details that make a house a home. His work is also informed by the 10 years he lived in Japan, where he grew to understand the subtle and sublime intricacies of architecture.

From his studio in Rockland, Dave works with architects, builders, designers, restaurants, real estate agencies, and other clients throughout New England. He gained international exposure through his exhibit at the University of Venice in September 2016. His presentation and accompanying international symposium dealt with photographing historic Japanese architecture. 

Dave Clough is committed to the craft and art of conveying a building’s beauty through the camera’s lens.
