With the number of prolific clients he serves, he is always on the move. “We were one of the first to shoot architectural work digitally, custom building some of our original equip-ment,” Maguire says. His first digital assignment was the expansion to Penn State’s stadium, and thanks to his digital capabilities, Maguire Photo was able to create game day photos of the stadium both with and without people at the same time. “Our entire business now is built around thinking digitally to get those shots that are impossible with conventional means.” Todd Kaminski, who has been with Maguire Photo for 12 years, started doing multi-image compositing way back before HDR became a common practice. Condensing a potential million-to-one contrast ratio into an image that was reproducible in print was something no one else was doing at the time. “This, along with superlative retouching, gave us an unbelievable advantage when showing our work to architects,” Maguire says. “We can also make sure we color match exactly to designers’ color boards, which is critically important to the interior designer and architect,” adds Kaminski. Maguire first achieved notable success with sports stadium work. He has pho-tographed Cleveland Browns Stadium, the Great American Ball Park – home of the Cincinnati Reds, Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Sun Life Stadium for the Miami Dolphins, and many more NFL and MLB stadiums. Another of his specialties is automo-tive and automotive-related photography. With several super-sized, custom-built, floating lightboxes in his studio, Maguire is equipped to shoot almost anything on four wheels. Having done countless autos for Summit Racing, he enjoys creating art with expertly placed highlights on the 3URSHUWLHV | December 2012
