Glenn D. Hettinger - Architect / Photographer / Author / Publisher
Glenn Hettinger, AIA, ICAA, has been designing, building and photographing homes for 40 years. He has a passion for residential photography and has taken thousands of photographs of homes across the country, many in his beloved home-town of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. As a practicing residential architect and residential photographer, Glenn recognizes the fine details that make a home distinctive (in a positive way) - and is wonderfully adept at capturing them with his lens.
Glenn is the creator of the 'Distinctive Homes of America®' book series and a principle at GDH Architects, P.A. He still resides in Ponte Vedra Beach, where he and his wife Jean raised their four sons. Glenn hopes that these pictures will be a blessing and an inspiration to readers - especially home owners, design professionals and craftsmen who design and build distinctive homes everywhere.
I decided to be a 'home architect' in eighth grade and attended Iowa State University (ISU). Soon after securing my architecture degree from ISU, I started my own design/ build home building company in Madison, WI. I have been working as a builder, architect or architectural photographer in residential architecture ever since.
Diane Zwack - Creative Designer/ Graphic Artist
As soon as Glenn discovered the graphic design talents and knowledge of publishing that his graphic artist Diane Zwack had she became indispensible to his book projects. She is the glue that holds it together and made it possible for us to cross the finish line... one book after another. Diane is located in Fort Myers, FL and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
