I am so thrilled to launch our first large event: Perspective, a festival focusing on architecture, design, photography, and videography. Held June 21-22, 2024, in the architecture mecca that is Columbus, Indiana, Perspective will bring together architects, artists, photographers, designers, videographers, and more to learn from each other and experience the incredible city of Columbus.
When an American photographer I had come to know purely through the ‘gram suggested we run a workshop on a remote island in the Finnish Archipelago, I was living in a very surreal time, the world was in the middle of a global pandemic, twerking was all over Tik Tok, oxygen tanks were being buried in backyards in India, and people were baking sourdough with reckless abandon.
If you’ve been in this photography game for any amount of time, you most likely have some clients that you love, and perhaps a few who you’d be happy to never meet again.
Having high-quality clients is the bedrock of a fruitful career. Without clients, photography is just your hobby.
Today we’re headed to El Llano, Mexico with amazing architectural photographer Paulina Ojeda. Paulina has kindly shared her photographs of Casa El Llano by Vincenzo Design Studio, which she made during Mexico’s rainy season. You’ll find this project is chock full of great light, great shapes, and great dogs!
Nikon has introduced a new mirrorless camera with a retro style. It’s a body that pays homage to the iconic analog FM2 model and bears a strong resemblance to the Z fc model introduced in 2021, featuring an APS-C sensor. Why might this model be of interest to architectural photographers?
Welcome to architect Bret de Their’s Radar Hill — a gorgeous home overlooking the Pacific, perched on New Zealand’s Northland’s East Coast. The maker of these spectacular photographs is none other than Auckland-based architectural photographer David Straight, who we are so excited to have back on APA for another Project of the Week!
You know we love talking about image licensing around here! Even more so, we love great licensing assets and educational resources.
We were recently put on to two powerful educational resources by amazing architectural photographer Melissa Kelsey and are grateful to her for sharing them with the community.
It’s easy to fall in love with Rafael Gamo‘s work. If you aren’t familiar with it already, I’d recommend checking out Rafael’s photographs of the San Nicholas Club House by SMA which won our 2021 Project of the Year Award, or the Project of the Week post of Tlalpuente house deep in the Mexican forest.
The Fujifilm GFX100s is a great camera for architectural photography. Many photographers use it in combination with shift lenses from other manufacturers. Thanks to adapters, we can use products from Canon, Nikon, or Laowa, for example. However, we have all been eagerly waiting for the long-promised native Fuji shift lenses.

If you haven’t taken the time to shoot a personal project yet this year, let this Project of the Week by Fergus Floyd be your reminder!
I had originally set out to have another one of Ferg’s projects featured here, but when he offered his new photographs of FJMT’s Bunjil Place instead, I couldn’t resist!
I remember the first time I used Adobe Lightroom. It had to be around the year 2008. It was a shock to me back then. I mainly had used Photoshop before, which is a powerful tool, but especially at that time, it wasn’t well-suited for quickly editing a large number of photos.
I love the way Jason O’Rear shoots infrastructure, civic structures, and skyscrapers. Abundant in context and shot from all the right perspectives, I find Jason’s work is just stellar. His photographs of Eagle + West are no exception. Each photo feels as big and meaningful as the structure it features, while he adds a bit of humanity and magic along the way.
We’re coming in hot with a quick PSA today about an Instagram account that you should be following as a professional photographer. Chock full of information, stats, and intel about the industry, Rob Haggart’s @aphotoeditor account is a fascinating litmus test regarding pricing, business trends, and best practices across various fields of photography — architecture and interiors included.
Edmund Sumner is an architectural photographer based in London who has been working in the field since 1998. A wealth of experience and talent, Edmund shoots worldwide, bringing his thoughtful compositions and recognizable style to all projects spanning from hospitality to cultural installations and everything in between.
Before I get into this, I need to put out a disclaimer – this article and video aren’t meant to throw shade at tilt-shift lenses. I love tilt-shift lenses. In fact, I own 3 of them. The whole idea for this topic came from seeing multiple condescending comments directed at newbie photographers, trying to make them feel inequitable because they didn’t use a TS lens!
Hold on to your hats for today’s Project of the Week folks! California-based architectural photographer Evan Ramzi has been shooting architecture for less than a year and making the most beautiful work! This particular project — Del Mar Terrace Residence by architect, builder, and interior Designer Shape Build Inc.
When I set out to pick a luminosity masking plugin for Photoshop a few years ago, I was pretty overwhelmed by the amount of options out there. It seemed like every photographer recommended a different plugin, and as someone with major analysis paralysis and decision fatigue, I finally decided just to pick one and get on with it.
