You might know engineer-turned-architecture-photographer Ales Vyslouzil from our past interview with him here on APALMANAC. Or maybe – like me – you follow his work for its beautiful qualities and incredible examples of architecture. Today, Ales has been so kind as to share his photographs of the Mysk Moon Retreat with us, and tell a bit about his process of photographing the resort.
If you’re looking to be inspired by an example of corporate architecture that displays a perfect use of figures, wonderful light, and encapsulates the feeling of what it is like to be present in the office, look no further than today’s Project of the Week. Jordan Powers is an architectural photographer based out of Nashville, who was kind enough to share his photographs of the Alliance Bernstein headquarters, as well as heaps of insight into his process of photographing it.
The workshop is Wednesday, May 18, 2022 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. EST. Adam will walk you through a shoot from start to finish – including cold calling a client, and ending with the project getting featured on the cover of Hawaii Home & Remodeling magazine, all for $39.
Every now and again you come across a project that is truly mindblowing and special. Not just for the quality of the images, but the logistics, planning, and story behind them. Albrecht Voß‘ and his Modern Alpine Architecture series is that project for me. I’ve been following it for quite some time as he has faithfully added more and more pieces to the series.
Nick Merrick is one of the most revered names in architectural photography, and it is easy to see why. With a long a storied career at Hedrich Blessing and his own firm Hall+Merrick+McCaughery, you can find Nick’s photography “in the collections of the Library of Congress, the Chicago History Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the George Eastman House as well as published in prestigious design journals and firm monographs.”
This week, our featured project takes us to Maison Des Étudiants De l’ÉTS by MSDL Architects. We’ll be taking a look at the work of architectural photographer Stéphane Brügger, who is based out of Montreal, Canada.
What I really enjoy about Stéphane’s project is his well-timed use of lighting and his careful compositions that show the scale and playful, geometric design of MSDL’s ÉTS campus.
I love seeing the brilliant ideas photographers put into place on their websites, Instagrams, or mention in forums. I’ve noticed that the ones I’m particularly drawn to have less to do with how to make great photos, and more to do with how to run a great business. They typically deal with copyright, marketing, and setting client expectations.
I love everything about Marnie Hawson – her work, her goals, her inclusion of dogs in a shot whenever possible.
Marnie is just the coolest. She is a one-woman certified B Corp photographing exclusively sustainable architecture. For those of her who are familiar with her frequently published, outrageously beautiful work, you are no stranger to what you’ll see in this edition of Project of the Week.
Today I’d like you to meet architectural photography retoucher Dmitry Provalov. Dmitry is based in Ukraine, and despite being in the midst of a war that threatens his livelihood, his safety, and his way of life, Dmitry works on. Not only does he have a wife and a daughter to support, but Dmitry employs other retouchers from around Kiyv, spreading the income and workload around.
Meet Mujib Ojeifo, an architectural photographer based out of Lagos, Nigeria. Mujib has his bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a master’s in Facilities Management. He started his photography career in 2017 as a wedding photographer. A longtime admirer of buildings, Mujib took photos of architecture on his phone as a hobby.
The wait is over! It’s finally time to reveal the finalists for the 2021 Project of the Year award. There were so many phenomenal entries for this category – and if you remember the two-part Project of the Year Award longlist – you know that the judges really had their work cut out for them to narrow down their choices.
The 2021 Photo of the Year Award was our simplest, but most impactful, submission category. All we required was a singular captivating and memorable image of the built environment. Our judges were looking for photographs that masterfully relayed a sense of place, beauty, and design prowess found in the architectural world.
Of all of the categories for the 2021 Architectural Photography Awards, the Early Career and Emerging Talent award was hands down the most popular. Not only were we blown away by the sheer quantity of new architectural and interiors photographs on the scene, but also by the high quality of the submissions.
Today we’re checking out an absolutely beautiful project by the wonderful photographer, Tony Colangelo!
Tony was hired by his long-time client South Shore Cabinetry (SSC) to photograph a stunning cabinetry/millwork installation in their recent project. Tony knew that the images will eventually be submitted to a regional building awards program on Vancouver Island, so his primary goal was to focus on displaying the kitchen.
This week’s featured project takes us all the way to Shanghai with architectural photographer Rex Zou. I’ve been following Rex’s work for a while now, and love both his clean style, and his penchant for documenting massive buildings in bustling cityscapes.
Today’s very cool project is by Californian architectural photographer Josh Bustos. The architecture of Canyon Canopy House itself is classic Californian – full of clerestory windows, texture, vaulted ceilings, and yet a quiet simplicity. The house is a lovely backdrop for an incredible selection of art – including bits of the Berlin Wall!
Our friends at Mass Collective have put together a wonderful initiative called ‘A Print for Ukraine,’ specifically geared toward architectural photographers who are seeking ways to help support Ukrainian people affected by the ongoing Russian invasion:
Photographers documenting architecture and the built environment from around the world have joined forces to offer their work for sale in aid of those affected by the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, in an initiative organized by the London-based Mass Collective.
This week’s featured project is absolutely stunning.
This curious and charming piece of residential architecture has been masterfully photographed by Luis Abba, an architectural photographer working in Mendoza, Argentina. Luis has documented Alberto Tonconogy & Asociados‘ Casa de Piedra in a way that infuses the photographs with a sense of place and time.
