New Hometown Community Bank Building: Interiors and Exteriors (Peoria Architectural Photographer)

Last weekend, I was commissioned by architectural firm The Redmond Company to make interior and exterior images of the new Hometown Community Banks building in Peoria, IL. (I also shot for Redmond last fall,at the Land of Lincoln Credit Union in Decatur, IL). It’s always an honor when a client hires me more than once.

“Community banking” is becoming a recurring motif in my work! I also recently did portraits of a community bank board member at North Central Bank in Hennepin, IL.

I was on-location in Peoria for 12 hours to allow time for several interior spaces and several exterior compositions.

While we had to work around typical challenges such as Saturday lobby hours, color casts from carpet and paint, AV equipment issues, restricted access to interior lighting, distracting elements and dissolved furniture arrangements (both to be expected in an occupied work space), windy and overcast weather at dusk, lots of traffic and surrounding retail, I was pleased with the results.

The parking structure was a distinguishing feature of this project for Redmond.

Normally, full daylight shots aren’t the most desirable or requested in architecture. I wasn’t originally planning on submitting full daylight proofs to Redmond; but in this case, it seemed to work. They agreed; Redmond licensed both the full daylight and dusk versions shown below. I think the former will work particularly well in printed materials.
