About Bob Fortner Photography

Bob Fortner Photography is owned by Bob Fortner who specializes in architectural, interiors and luxury real estate photography.  The studio is based in the Raleigh, NC area and Bob creates photographs of residential homes and commercial buildings, as well as area amenities that showcase the lifestyle of communities and the facilities that businesses provide for their employees and clients.

Bob is known for his creative compositions and ability to carefully balance a delicate combination of mostly natural light and just enough flash photography to produce realistic images that reveal the style, texture and character that the interior designer, architect, or builder created.  His compositions focus on using the architectural lines and geometry of the space to reveal a true sense of volume and flow to the viewer.  Using and shaping available light, each photograph is carefully crafted to reveal in very realistic and authentic terms what it is like to be IN the space.  Bob's images tell the story of the spaces he photographs.  The viewer of each photograph gains a tremendously accurate understanding of what it is like to enjoy the design and functionality of the room.

When he’s not busy at on-site photoshoots or in the studio editing photographs, Bob enjoys spending time with his family, cooking and traveling.
