This week’s featured project takes us on a very cool adventure with Marco Petrini of Petrini Studio. Marco is a New York City-based architect and architectural photographer. During a recent trip to Crete, Greece, for a photography assignment and vacation, Marco came across the abandoned Dionysos village, which he decided to photograph.
We have learned so much over the last two years and are proud to launch what is surely our best competition yet. We remain committed to being the only photography competition solely by and for architectural photographers.
Given the unique criteria by which professional architectural photography is commissioned and created, it must be judged with a critical eye, and as a result the majority of “architectural photography” contests have not done the best job of accurately judging architectural photography.
You’ve probably noticed that things have been a little quiet around here recently. I definitely understand and feel it as well! With that in mind thought I’d share a few major updates about the current and future of Architecture Photography Almanac as we wrap on our …wait for it… fifth year in operation.
I am always stricken by Luis Gallardo of LGM Studio’s work! Today, our featured project takes us to a house in the forest, where Luis immerses us deep in a world of reflections, context, light, and mood.
Throughout this project, it often feels like Luis’s photographs are a magic trick, and the house is appearing and disappearing before our eyes.
Nakul Jain of Team NJDC is a Chandigarh-based architectural photographer who is taking us on an adventure today to the Pranveer Singh Institute of Technology located in Kanpur, India. PSIT is designed by Locus Associates with Mukul Gupta as the principal architect and Sapna Khattar as the interior architect.
We’re back on Project of the Week Melbourne-based architectural and interior photographer Jack Lovel! Today we’ll be taking a look at Jack’s stunning photographs of Shadow House by Grotto Studio.
Throughout this gorgeous project, you can expect to see Jack’s thoughtful compositions, mood-filled imagery, and perfectly rich yet unfussy photo treatments.
Kris Provoost is an architectural and interiors photographer based in Hong Kong. With a wide range of clients, awards, and and published photographs, looking at Kris’s work, it’s easy to see why. From infrastructure projects to residences, and shiny complete structures, his work is infused with a sense of place and life.
Rumor has it that there is one man holding a Master’s degree in Photography way out in Fargo, North Dakota, and that man is Dan Francis. Dan was a photography instructor for 8 years, and works as an architectural and fine art photographer these days.
Ever since I saw Jacob McNeil and Jaimie Walker’s submission in our 2021 Architectural Photography Awards, I’ve deeply enjoyed seeing their work. When Jacob wrote in with their photographs of White Rock in Victoria, BC, I was so excited to hear a bit about the shoot and see the images they made — and boy, they covered the whole gamut, with each photograph just as lovely as the last.
We’re back with Project of the Week veteran Dave Burk whose work you’ll remember seeing here on APA — like the stunning reflective facade of SOM’s National Museum of the US Army and his compelling photographs of the Netsch Residence, built in 1974 by renowned architect Walter Netsch and remodeled by SOM.
In the first part of this series, where I discussed my subjective reflections related to photo post-processing in Lightroom and Capture One, I covered topics such as types of licenses, program interfaces, tethering, and the difference between a catalog and a session.
If you love deeply atmospheric and mood-filled imagery — and architectural photos that just feel special — look no further than these pictures of Flock Hill for Warren and Mahoney by Auckland-based photographer Sam Hartnett.
Sam’s thoughtful, compellingly lit compositions help us place ourselves at Flock Hill and understand the story behind the architecture and design.
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!
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.
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.
