Mike Butler – Architectural Photographer



You’ll see plenty of photos of this iconic stone house, which gained fame from the Civil War Battles of Manassas / Bull Run, but none with this level of production.

Having grown up for many years nearby in Manassas Va, the Stone House was something I saw often.  So it was a real pleasure to have the opportunity while on commercial assignment nearby to photograph this very historical home from the Civil War, which also a part of my childhood.  With only one morning to shoot, I arose around 3 am to head out and tackle the lighting this shoot.  I brought with me my trusty DPS and a 1000 watt Honda generator.  The home is pretty compact so I made easy lighting work of it, it was the composition that was the more challenging aspect of the shot.
