ARCHITECTURAL AND INTERIOR PHOTOGRAPHY

My long history in Interior Design underpins my ability to photograph the built environment. Every building has a story to tell and with a sensitive approach, it's individual story can be revealed. Lighting is the key; the art of crafting the light to reveal the beauty within.  

Tips n' Tricks

  • Make sure the location is ready for photographing, ie: cleaned, furnished and dressed apropiately for your vision
  • Hire a stylist to dress and/or furnish the premises
  • Be prepared to have the furniture moved around to suit the camera angle
  • Ensure all lights are the same, if at all possible. Try to avoid mixing tungsten and LEDs for example, as they have differing colour temperatures which become very obvious when photographed and will have to be adjusted in post
  • Be there - it will help immensely letting me know if you're going to be on site during the shoot or not. As a professional photographer, there is nothing more frustrating than being left high and dry after arriving at the shoot to find no one present and people not answering their phones.
  • By being at the shoot, you can offer input and discuss the images as they are being made, making sure that your creative vision is being met. It also gives us the chance to bounce off each other and create photos that make us both go "wow" or find angles you hadn't previously considered.
  • If you absolutely can't be at the shoot, make sure you've over communicated all of the logistics, art direction and any other crucial instructions and information to me.
  • Ensure there is a safe place for the photography gear. Somewhere to set up from and preferably away from any foot traffic and other obstructions.
  • Ensure there is accessible power outlets for lights and other camera gear. If no power available please ensure I know about it as I will have to supply portable power.
  • Take a break!! Depending on the length of your shoot, we might be done in a couple of hours or it may take much longer for larger projects. If that's the case, it's always a good idea to take a break, grab a coffee and a bite to eat. Photography can be mentally exhausting for both you and me, so it's helpful to step away for an hour or so so you can refuel and refresh the creative juices. That way we'll both be ready for the second half of the shoot.
