Black and White
Starrett Artists was commissioned to produce a wide variety of black and white photography for HNTB’s proposal to Sound Transit. The scope of our work included portraits, editorial, and marquee images.
Using a consistent lighting theme we started with portrait work providing specific cropping and framing so that HNTB’s graphic team had the exact type of images they needed for laying out their extensive proposal.
Working closely with HNTB’s Lisa Harrison, was a fun and creative experience. Having some roots in the Seattle added to the excitement as we documented potential routes and stops for this massive extension to Seattle’s growing infrastructure.
The wild and challenging landscape of the area, the density of city, the waterways all make a project like this a multidimensional puzzle that requires immense planning and engineering expertise.

Sculpture in the Wild
lackfoot Pathways: Sculpture in the Wild International Sculpture Park celebrates the rich environmental, industrial and cultural heritage of the Blackfoot Valley. Sculptors have been invited to create significant site-specific works of art using the materials – natural and industrial – that are associated with the community’s economic and cultural traditions.
Since its creation we have continually documented and produced sign materials for Blackfoot Pathways: Sculpture in the Wild, in Lincoln Montana. It is a International Sculpture park with world renown artists and a educational art program for the greater community. We have created several commissioned film pieces, original photography, and graphic designed promotional signs for the park.
Photography & Graphic Design for Signage
