About Architectural Photography Almanac

“Architects live and die by the images that are taken of their work, as these images alone are what most people see. For every person who visits a private house, there are maybe 10,000 who only view it as a photo.”

Julius Shulman

Architectural Photography Almanac (APA) was created as a hub for architectural photographers. We regularly feature members of the architectural photography community and their outstanding work in articles and interviews, discuss business strategies, share technique and equipment knowledge, and take a critical look at the craft of architectural photography.

Founded in 2018, the goal of APA is to serve as a resource for inspiration and empowerment of freelance architectural photographers all across the globe.

I'm a photographer based in Los Angeles, California who specializes in photographing architecture; I also have a mild airplane obsession.

Lexi Taciak

STAFF WRITER

Howdy! I'm Lexi, a photographer, graphic designer, and writer. After my husband and I restored our 1919 home in Baltimore, I developed a love of all things architectural.

As a huge nerd for post-processing and elaborate detail work, I've found great joy in the labors of love that photographing architecture demands. In my former travels around the globe as an ad agency photographer, I've fallen even further in love with the various structures and niches that AP has to offer!

Veeral Patel

STAFF WRITER

I'm a Kiwi photographer living in Melbourne, Australia, photographing Interiors and Architecture. Obsessed with Petersen bricks as well as furniture pieces designed by Patrica Urquiola.

Aside from photographing architecture, I am a tragic MAMIL and a Campagnolo fanatic.

György Palkó

STAFF WRITER

Based in Ajak, Hungary, I am a father, husband, and architectural photographer - these three "roles" fills my entire life. When I'm not with my family, you can find me photographing architecture, cheering for AC Milan (have been a fan since birth!) or out for a run.

Brandon Vogts

Staff Writer

Born and raised in suburban Kansas, I moved to Los Angeles in 2013, where I found my niche in architectural photography. Since then, I’ve specialized in photographing interiors and architecture.

Other passions include music, technology, and art. Sometimes I say hurtful things during Mario Kart, and I refuse to acknowledge messages written in Comic Sans.

Dane Alonso

I lead a double life as an architect and architectural photographer based in Mexico City, a metropolis full of contrast. I periodically travel back to the tranquility of the Alps where I finished my architecture studies and met my life partner.

I'm interested in proportion systems, asymmetry and maps.

I'm not really a morning person but, sometimes I am forced to get up at ungodly hours to photograph stuff. I dig music, movies, tech, psychology, and long walks on the beach at sunset. In my local business community, I am known as "The guy with the neck tattoo."

Leslie Burns

Copyright Lawyer

After seeing how creatives got screwed so often in business, I decided I’d love to go to law school to protect them better. It took a while before I could make that happen, financially, but in 2008 I got offered a full scholarship and leapt at the chance. I loved law school. I passed the California bar on the first try and have been licensed and practicing in California since 2011.

I call myself a “bad buddhist” and you’ll see references to that in my work and writings here. Basically, it means I try to use respect, compassion, and a desire to resolve problems amicably whenever possible. However, when needed, I’m as tenacious as a badger. Think Carol Kane in Scrooged–sweet, but more than capable of going all lawyer-ninja on opponents.

A Midwesterner until my 30s, I now live in San Diego with my boyfriend (Tony), cat (Ruth Bader Catzburg), and Blue Heeler (Mongo Santamaria).
