Architectural photography - a balance between the aesthetic and the illustrative.
Good architectural imagery is seductive, it is about electing a response about the the space not the photography.Matthew Jones
Photographs of architecture and spaces are elevated by capturing form and space, through the consideration of composition and light. It is about encapsulating the vision of the architect.
This doesn't need to be complex, often the skill is often being in the right place and time, with the right equipment and knowing how to use it of course. Architectural photography will give a viewer an appreciation and understanding of the use materials and the play of line and shape with light.
The point being, it is about the space not the photograph.
The find out about our fees and see more examples head over to our Architectural Photography page. We also shoot stunning aerial footage.
We work for for many clients from Architects to construction companies and hotel chains. We often combine drone and sill photography in one shoot. The advantage of this is that that you get visual imagery that works across different platforms.
Buildings and structures often look their best aesthetically at dawn or dusk and the features are often best illustrated in the daylight. Daylight shots are best at the beginning or end of the day, a blue sky and a bit of sun really helps. Given that a professional photographer gets all the technical bits right, lighting is still paramount.
We avoid HDR photography if possible however if I do use this technique I do it with subtlety, the sense of reality and believability has value.
Interiors are slightly different, good natural light and daylight bulbs are ideal but indoors there are techniques and lighting that can be used when conditions aren’t perfect.
