Rachel Brockey, Artist Statement
Upon completing studies at Brooks Institute of Photography in 1991, with focus in Architecture and Interior Design Photography, Rachel built a successful commercial photography business with offices on the east and west coasts. Rachel’s early work focused solely on building mixed media visual portfolios for Fortune 500 Companies, with a special emphasis in the hospitality and destination resort markets. Later in her career, she launched a second photography business focused on supporting risk management for large capital development through ground to air visual mapping services.
Today, Vantage Point Global's expertise in collecting spatially accurate digital, drone and aerial visual documentation has been credited for saving hundreds of millions of dollars, with support dedicated to construction liability management, QAQC oversight, and owner operations and management scopes. Her firm has proudly supported more than 33.5 million square feet of large capital development scope to date.
Rachel has worked on notable projects for National Geographic, the National Football League, the National Baseball League, the Los Angeles Dodgers, The Los Angeles Rams, The Los Angles Chargers, The Cosmopolitan Resort & Casino, MGM, City Center Las Vegas, Los Angeles World Airports, Sacramento International Airport, San Deigo International Airport, and Sky Harbor International Airport, Flemings Steakhouse, PF Changs, Mandarin Oriental Washington DC, Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, Omni Resorts, Starwood Resorts, and Hilton Hotels.
Aside from her work in architectural photography, Rachel’s personal passions are fueled by her love for geographic exploration and building recognition for photography as collectible fine art. Rachel has led 31 landscape photographic workshops with destinations in California, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona and Utah. In May of 2014 Rachel embarked on a solo photography expedition canvasing 13,000 miles across the Southwest and Northwest United States in a span of a year. During her journey, she visited numerous state and national parks while randomly turning down roads that called to her where she has said many of her greatest work was created. She often puts down her camera to take in the beauty and life-scapes she encounters making every effort not to take life for granted.
Rachel's work is enjoyed in both commercial and residential environments.
