Trent Bell and Eugene Colberg Discuss the Relevance of Photography for Architects

How can you make a living by doing what you love – for us, that’s taking photos of buildings and interiors – while there are thousands of others doing the same?

For me, there is only one answer to that question: learn how to add value to the business of your client. There are many different ways to make an impactful difference that allows you to stand out from your competition.

Keith Isaacs Photographs A Contemporary Home on the Coast of North Carolina

While it’s not really beach time here on America’s East Coast, I’ve spent many autumn weeks on North Carolina’s beaches. It feels fitting to me, then, that this week’s featured project be of Mobius House by Kersting Architecture. Mobius House sits back in the dunes of Pine Knoll Shores, North Carolina and has been perfectly photographed by Raleigh, NC based architectural photographer Keith Isaacs.

It’s Black Friday Deal Time at B&H

As we all know, good photography equipment is expensive, but November is coming to an end and that means one thing – Black Friday is here, and it is time to get some shiny new equipment!

Even though specialised equipment for architectural photography is a bit niche and it is not easy to find it discounted, there are some nice discounts on more popular equipment like camera bodies, computers, and lighting options that will come in handy when you are taking some great shots of architecture.

Removing Objects From Complex Backgrounds

As architectural photographers, we regularly have to deal with removing unwanted objects from an image. Over the course of time, and after building your own experience, you probably have found a few favorite ways to do so. I personally am endlessly searching for ways to improve my post-production workflow, especially because Photoshop’s instruments are always improving.

How To Register Your Copyright in the United States

Coming off the heels of our recent article sharing Andrew Keithly’s excel macro to help speed up the process of filling out your copyright registration form, I thought it would be prudent to share another video with a more comprehensive breakdown detailing the process of copyright registration (in the US) – a start-to-finish explanation beginning with image prep all the way through the registration process. 

Hélène Binet Retrospective Opens at London’s Royal Academy

Tasked with photographing and documenting spaces and structures mostly for commercial purposes, a lot of what is produced in our genre of photography will be hard pushed to be considered a work of art, especially considering its technical and sometimes rigid nature.

Select individuals however seem to have something extra that allows them to push their work into something greater, something more than simple information about the subject at hand.

Building Australia’s Tallest Skyscraper – Melbourne’s Southbank by Beulah

Melbourne’s Southbank by Beulah Tower is poised to become the tallest building in the southern hemisphere once completed.  The two-tower megadevelopment will eventually rise to 366 meters (1,200 feet) and transform Australia’s ‘garden city.’ 

The project was born out of an international competition held back in 2018 which was eventually won by a co-authored design by UN Studio and Cox Architecture. 

Piet Niemann Photographs DMAA’s Offshore Borkum Project

There are a thousand ways to describe this Project of the Week, but simply sublime is all that really needs to be said.

Really, simply sublime was the goal mood for this project, which is meant to be a relaxing home-away-from-home. Delugan Meissl Associated Architects designed this superb residential housing for offshore workers who are building and servicing the major offshore wind turbine parks in the North Sea, between the UK, the Netherlands, and Germany.

3 Steps for Bright & Clean White Walls

Every now and then I receive a DM or YouTube comment asking about aspects of my personal editing process. The questions tend to be all over the place, but a common one I’ve received multiple times is “how do you get your white walls to look clean and bright?”.

There are multiple ways in Lightroom and Photoshop to achieve the same goal, but in this video, I give you my personal editing process to achieve that clean white wall look.

Today’s featured project was submitted by Ira Gosalia of Photographix India, and it takes us to the old town neighborhood of Ahmedabad, India. Today we’ll be checking out Ira’s photographs of Play House by UA Design.

‘The Sound of Ink’ – Creative Directors, Beauty and the Bit, Share Their Cinematic Approach to 3D Animation

Visualizers and renderers get such bad rap within our industry.  Whether that stems from a concern of photographers becoming obsolete or simply ignorance on how much talent and skill some of these creatives possess – I really don’t know.  For me personally, I continue to be inspired by how the best visualizers in the game keep pushing the envelope, exploring new ways to showcase their clients’ yet-to-be-built projects.
