Architecture photography

Optimize project visibility. Showcase architecture with powerful visuals.

Besides capturing the building, architecture photography should enhance the client’s vision and intentions. Whether for breathtaking presentation, informative or compelling sales function, whether for an architectural studio, a contractor, a real estate fund, a high-end real estate, or perhaps a cultural institution. I strive for minimalism and contextual connections while focusing on extreme details and going beyond the documentary.

Brief for architecture photography

To provide you with the desired architectural photography, it’s essential to specify any particular needs and special requirements in a brief, not only about the building itself. Therefore, add an estimated amount of photographs, their intended usage, and the timeframe for the project completion, if any.

Building conditions, access, and restrictions

Although the building may appear in the best possible condition for photography, there are a few things to look out for to avoid visual distractions (Possible adjoining landscaping, installation of utilities, or ongoing construction of surrounding buildings). It is vital to notify the facility manager and security in advance and obtain entrance permission if necessary. In addition, some buildings are subject to a special regime of restrictions about which it is crucial to inform me beforehand (banks, military buildings, galleries, and similar).

Weather and lighting

Optimal weather and excellent lighting conditions are fundamental to the finest architectural photography. For instance, I return to the Buildings at different times and conditions of the day, according to the pre-calculated position of the sun. Shooting over several days is common, and a reserve is necessary in the event of bad weather.
