Robert Rieger is a phenomenal editorial photographer specializing in architecture, interiors, and portraiture. He is based in Berlin, but works all over the world. Robert’s work is rich in contrast and dramatic light. It radiates a warm, sun-drenched, golden feeling. His photographs flow together to make one continuous story, with each individual composition acting as its own tiny tale.
With another APALMANAC Architecture Photography Awards season on the horizon, I’ve found myself going back and pouring over the longlisted entries from the 2021 awards. One project I was particularly stricken by was Miranda Kimberlin’s photographs of Taviawk by Imbue Design. For this week’s featured project, let’s dive in and get to know Miranda and her work a bit better!
Frequency separation is an outrageously powerful tool to have in your retouching skillset. Simply put, frequency separation (FS) is a technique used in Photoshop where you separate the colors and tones in an image from the texture and grain. Once separated, you are able to edit both “layers” independently from each other.
I love photographer Jonathan Leijonhufvud’s website biography, and think it paints the perfect picture of our Project of the Week photographer:
Jonathan Leijonhufvud photographs architecture, interiors and still life.
Born in Sweden, raised in China, Jonathan works internationally with offices in Beijing and Hong Kong.
Let’s talk about making money. The most common questions in the APALMANAC inbox are about pricing. Pricing architecture and interior photography can be nuanced and chock full of variables like usage, licensing, creative fees, post-production fees, assistant charges, and the like.

The three-building development at the base of the Coit Tower in Pioneer Park, San Francisco has a storied history of intense pushback and great controversy since the plans for its development started in 1997. In the mid 2010’s, the developer and Butler Arsmden Architecture were granted permission to begin development.

A few weeks ago, my colleague Kyrre Sundal wrote a post sharing his favorite architecture-based youtube channels. One of those channels was that of Stewart Hicks. I wanted to hone in on one of Stewart’s videos that I particularly like – as it applies directly to photography and is pretty thought-provoking.
Chicago’s husband and wife team Ryan and Sarah Miller of Miller + Miller Architectural Photography photograph infrastructure in such a compelling way that I could pour through it all day. In particular, Sarah and Ryan knock bridges out of the park.

Architectural photographer Matthew McNulty submitted in a series that is a bit different from what we usually see around here, making it a welcome Project of the Week candidate! Matthew photographed LaGuardia Airport’s Terminal C during construction and after completion, producing a couple of awesome diptychs in addition to an overall great set of photographs.
Yacht photography is one of those glittery niches relating to architecture and design photography that I often catch myself daydreaming about. I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay and spent almost every waking moment on the water, which is probably where my deep intrigue for this sort of project stems from.
George Kroustallis of Minorstep is an architectural and hotel photographer and filmmaker based in London. Today on Project of the Week, we are taking a dive into his lovely photos and video of Casa da Volta, a high-end villa resort at the heart of Comporta, Portugal.

Today, architectural photographer Adam Gibson is taking us to ‘The Point’ – a jaw-dropping home designed by Tanner Architects in Southern Tasmania. The Point rests on a rural hillside, looking out over the ocean. Adam has done a beautiful job placing this house in the context of its environment, showing off the materiality, infusing each scene with an otherworldly mood, and helping us understand the details that make The Point so special.
I was recently introduced to a very interesting and eerie photo book project that is a collaboration between architectural photographer Adam Reynolds and fine art photographer Jeanine Michna-Bales – aptly named COUNTDOWN.
Adam – who in addition to his client-commissioned architectural photography work – has photographed past projects like documenting Isreal’s bomb shelters.
On this episode of Project of the Week, UK-based Jim Stephenson tells a bit about blurring the line between film and photography, the importance of detail, and getting whisked away in a rowboat while photographing The Pottering Shed by Studio Mutt.
“This was the first project I was commissioned for this year, so it was early January on the English coast – bloody freezing!
