Originally from Honolulu, Hawaii.  After receiving my BFA, lived in Europe, doing photo journalism in Rome, and apprenticing in a Zurich studio.  There was my first exposure to architecture - old world monuments and contemporary Scandinavian. Settled in Bend, Oregon, with two studios for product, copy, and portraiture, and in-house lab service. Now with digital capture, it is location and post-production on Macs. A varied photo background:  documentary, fine art capture, medical photography, portraiture, television still-camera work. Presently - architecture and interiors, and video shorts. Location shoots in California, Washington, Hawaii, Montana, Wyoming, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, and recently, Missouri.  

Personal interests include studying Vedic Astrology and organic gardening.

Indivar Sivanathan has done spectacular photography of our finished projects for several years.  She always submits several proofs from which to select shots for our portfolio.  I have always been very pleased with her work.

Working with Indivar has been very enjoyable.  Her photography has helped to promote my business in so many great ways.  I am a kitchen and bath designer and she has produced beautiful photos of my work for my portfolio.  I have had her go out to several of my jobs to take photos over the last few years.  I continually use her on an on-going basis as I produce more jobs.  She is personable, friendly and easy to work with!  I would highly recommend using her for your next project.

Indivar provided post construction photographs for an Orinda, CA project we worked on.  We felt that her photographs were breathtaking and successfully captured the essence of the place. We are grateful to have associated with her on this, and very much look forward to future opportunities.

Indivar just completed photography for a project of mine and she was great to work with.  She has a really keen eye and knows how to capture the best aspects of a space.  Besides delivering high quality images that won't break the bank, she responds to calls and emails with lightning speed.  Highly recommend.
