Curtis Finger started working with photography at the early age of 8. When he was in grade school he used the darkroom as a way to dodge the subzero temperatures of the Wisconsin winters. By the time high school came around, he was printing nonstop in the darkroom and experimenting with a new photographic tool, Photoshop 3. Shortly after started a job in a photography lab where he witnessed the change from film to digital. At the time when the labs were closing he was opening doors that got him in assisting on many high-end projects. He’s assisted on assignments that ranged from lighting skyscrapers, to Ferrari’s and corporate portraits. In 2008 he started his transition from assisting to becoming an architectural photographer. Keeping traditional lighting techniques alive he blends skills from the film world to the ever-changing digital platform.

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
