Domestic Architecture

Domestic Architecture

Here are a few photographs from 3 Matthew Montague projects.  All have been shortlisted for awards.   Domestic architectural design is often minimal in new builds, not the case here though.  The Mill complex had a lovely feel and atmosphere.  As I was taking the photographs a number of residence took interest in what I was… Continue Reading

Construction progress August 2018

It is fascinating to witness the construction of a project as complex as the Teesside biomass power plant.  It is the largest purpose built facility in Europe.   Good photography is about control of the medium.  The approach I took for this was to shoot clear accurate and detailed photographs.  I kept the composition as… Continue Reading

Spalding construction

A few shots of construction under way at APC’s Spalding site.   Ground works are near completion, the whole site was raise by several feet. The foundations for the turbine are immense and there is a huge amount of work underground.  Much like the Teessdie construction site the planning, organisation and scheduling is very precise and… Continue Reading

Construction Portraits

Portraits from Teesdock power plant construction.  It can seem chaotic with many activities taking place at once, however every piece of steel, every weld, every single activity is precisely planned.  Steel joists, pipes and boilers weighting many tens of tons in all sorts of configurations are lifted and welded into place with millimeter accuracy often… Continue Reading

Architectural Photography Derby

Architectural photography poses it’s own challenges.  The decisive moment is extended beyond a fraction of a second, but never the less the time and viewpoint are just as crucial. Generally light is more flattering during the hour after and before sunrise. In this case the student accommodation block is… Continue Reading

Agard Street Apartments

My brief was to shoot the apartments to look as attractive as possible and while maintaining a realistic appearance. Sometimes a simple approach works best.  Architecturally these apartments are not as spectacular as some of the other buildings I have photographed.  These were shot for a client who rents several apartments in the complex.   Continue Reading
