As a designer, Rian Neil draws on not only his study of visual communication and interactive media design, but also on the philosophy of a mentor he has never met: Frank Lloyd Wright. Neil strives to follow the philosophy behind Wright’s Fallingwater home, which fused aesthetics with a respect for the existing landscape. With this in mind, Neil tailors each of his projects to his client’s unique situation or “landscape,” whether he is crafting a website, branding a product, or shooting a family portrait. Neil’s photography endeavors extend beyond family portraiture; however, he can also snap shots of newborns, capture newlyweds’ bonds, and ply photos with special effects to create antique-style Fauxlaroids, rather than the original antique-style photo: a good cave painting.
