Commission Colin Winterbottom

Colin Winterbottom primarily creates his work independently, but accepts commissions to create original works for client when interests align. He is especially interested in projects involving historic architecture and urban landscape. Original photographs can be created in black and white or color as suits the client's needs.

Winterbottom has created original fine art work for Ford's Theatre and the international Spy Museum. More recently Wiss, Janey, Elstner Associates, Inc. commissioned Winterbottom to document their Difficult Access Team as they inspected for earthquake-related damage at the Washington Monument and Washington National Cathedral. Photographs from this series have been published internationally and one was selected by United Press International as a news photo of the year, 2011. A commission from the Trust for the National Mall followed, underwhich Colin continued to follow earthquake repairs at the Washington Monument. He also continues making photographs at Washington National Cathedral as Artist in Residence. The project is set to produce the most extensive study of a single site Winterbottom has undertaken; exhibitions from the series have been mounted at Longview Gallery, the Cathedral's Pilgrims Observation Gallery, and the National Building Museum; and are featured in a forthcoming artist's book "Gothic Resilience."

Winterbottom is especially interest in photographing at historic preservation sires. Please visit the Historic Preservation gallery to see examples of Colin's work in this area. He has photographed restoration and refurbishment projects at many of Washington's Historic icons, and has documented restoration scaffolding at Virginia's Chapman Mill and repairs to storm-damaged statuary at Miami's Vizcaya Plantation.
