Pete Sieger studied architecture in the late 1960’s, and received his Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Minnesota in 1973. He has worked as a practicing architect for over thirty years. Pete’s interest in architectural photography dates to 1972 when he acquired his first large format camera, a 4”x5” Kodak Masterview with a 90mm Schneider Angulon lens. As an in-house photographer, Pete documented over fifty completed projects for Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle, Ltd. (MS&R). He is now providing architectural photography services for a growing list of clients in Minnesota and beyond.
His work has been published in a variety of books and periodicals and has been included in exhibits sponsored by the University of Minnesota, College of Design. He works utilizing both the 4”x5” format (film) and direct digital capture with perspective correction lenses. In 2010 Pete co-founded IDE[A] – Imaging the Designed Environment [Architecture] – a Minneapolis based architectural photography collaborative consisting of seven Minneapolis photographers and film-makers.
