MEET THE TEAM
Cheryl McIntosh comes from a branding and marketing background where she specialized in helping architects and builders differentiate their firms through pen and lens. As a freelancer, Cheryl began shooting for her architectural and building clients in 2009. She later took a break from her own business to open a satellite office for Lenity Architecture, and it was here where she honed her technical skills and began to focus more deliberately on communicating the design intent and project story beyond creating beautiful aesthetics.
At Quanta Collectiv, Cheryl focuses on traditional still architectural photography. She enjoys working with a diverse range of models to reveal how people interact organically in their environment. The inclusionary energy Cheryl brings to the shoot sparks candid enthusiasm from even the most stoic of models. Cheryl is your primary point person for proposals, scheduling, project management
Casey Braunger brings over 15 years experience as the in-house architectural photographer/ videographer for one of the top architecture and interior design firms on the West Coast. As an accomplished photographer first, Casey's portfolio reflects a deep understanding of composition, light, and architectural design principals. His grasp of architectural photography extends to the highly specialized drone and video product that sets Quanta Collectiv apart as being deeply immersed in the field. Whether shooting drone, video or stills, Casey's approach is equally deliberate, with careful attention to architectural composition throughout the entire production.
Casey's in-house experience working with several multi-disciplined design teams equips him to tell an insightful project story that captures the essence of multiple interests. Navigating the collective needs of a large team and individual designers speaks to Casey's approachable demeanor and well-honed communication skills. He has been published in Architectural Digest, Seattle Magazine, Willamette Weekly, and multiple industry publications.
About Quanta Collectiv
Quanta Collectiv offers clients in the design and build industries a cohesive, central source for high-end architectural photography, drone and video productions. We’re two partners with branding and marketing backgrounds who share similar values and vision for the work. Both professional architectural photographers got their start in the branding and advertising world before landing in marketing for large architectural firms. Their shared technique, style and flexible approach brought Cheryl & Casey together to deliver a rich client experience that reflects deep understanding and appreciation for the craft.
Casey and Cheryl worked side by side as client and vendor before launching Quanta Collectiv. Their collaborative team dynamic invites perspective and a deeper, more complex telling of the project story. When viewed side by side, their work reflects a familial cohesiveness across mediums with the collective creativity of two.
Projects are bid based on a number of variables including the number of images and project scope. Please inquire for an estimate based on your specific project needs. A shot list is helpful in preparing an accurate bid.
There are a number of different ways we can work together. In addition to flat rate or per image budgets, we also offer package and hourly rates. These flexible arrangements are helpful for catching up on portfolio work and documenting projects under construction. Image usage rights are flexible and do not expire.
The Quanta Collectiv Name and Branding
At Quanta Collectiv, we use technology, light and our imaginations to bring beauty to even the most clinical of projects. Quantum (plural=Quanta) are the most basic building blocks of energy on the electromagnetic spectrum, including but not limited to light. The logo icon represents the inner workings of a tilt-shift lens which is considered the lens of choice by architectural photographers. With a tilt-shift, the optics can be tilted and/or shifted in relation to the image sensor enabling the ability to capture the most photons (light energy quanta) coming into to the camera sensor–allowing for the most complete recreation of a scene.
