Architecture Photography is a very demanding job. In order to capture a building or structure in a way that is both aesthetically pleasing and accurate to the intentions of the original architect, you have to be incredibly patient and very skilled with the equipment I'm using. Most of us will only ever see landmark buildings through the lens of an architectural photographer, so capturing the building at its finest is of huge importance to the architect as well as to me.
With perhaps a less commercial emphasis, architectural photography is increasingly finding ways of capturing elements of the built environment in intriguing ways; finding beauty in benign structures, the strange effect of shadows at a certain time of day, highlighting the relationship between people, nature and the built environment, and drawing this out with the camera is what i love to do. Some of the finest art work of recent times has come from architectural photography.
“There is so much that goes into one of my photographs – from composing, to staging, to lighting, to retouching and processing – it really is a very long and exciting process in which I can spend in some cases over 12 hours just crafting one image. Every part of the image must be carefully considered, i peer into the detail of the structure or interior of the building and try to bring our the character of the building, itself. It's a facinating process to go through, most people don't look at the detail, but through the lens its all you see. I really enjoy this type of photography and would love to help you show of your building or interior design, be it a restaurant a house for sale or an office building or landmark.
