What We Do

Plan Your Space

If your walls could talk, what would they say? To your patients? To your staff? Your walls are an extension of your care team and a big part of the healing process. Let us help you choose the RIGHT nature images — supported by research — so you can get the best outcomes in your healthcare facility. We promise you won't regret it.

Custom Photography

Our library is nearly endless. That’s good news for you. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Email us for a custom portfolio. Or let us photograph something (local or new) just for you. Using local imagery has been shown to improve patient outcomes in healthcare environments. The research is clear: Nature heals.

Installation

Got nature? Nature art is one of the easiest, most cost-effective ways to bring nature indoors. From the earliest development stages with architects, designers, and end-users, to art selection and placement, to the very finishing touches of installing the artwork, we enjoy every second.

“I’ve been all over this hospital and other medical offices, and there are some dark, drab spaces out there that make you want to curl into a ball in the corner. So I really love when a healing space has bright light and great art and thoughtful design. I think it reminds us patients of all the beauty in the world we want to stick around for.”

“Kurt and Carolyn Johnson are a unique and dynamic team! They were able to provide original high-quality beautiful biophilic imagery that embraced the design vision and made it come to life.”

“Kurt and Carolyn were wonderful to work with. They asked lots of questions about how areas were being used so they could recommend the right artwork and were very mindful about incorporating some local landmarks into the building. We have enjoyed working with Kurt Johnson Photography and look forward to working with them on future projects.”

“We loved working with Kurt Johnson Photography and their team. The nature of the material Kurt photographs and his eye for composition really lends itself to taking these images and just exploding them. It’s kind of interesting to see details blown up and magnified that you would not see in normal life...it can instantly transform a space.”

“Not only are their images and photo manipulation skills on point, but the professionalism they display to keep the relationships with the designers and clients is also exceptional, to say the least. I have enjoyed every opportunity I have had to work with this team and look forward to many more amazing projects together!”
