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!

Climbing Through Scree, Glaciers, and Mountain Passes, Albrecht Voß Photographs Stunning Examples of Modern Alpine Architecture

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.

Photographing the Maison Des Étudiants De l’ÉTS Campus With Stéphane Brügger

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.

Marnie Hawson on Photographing Sustainable Architecture at Brave New Eco’s Enduring House

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.

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.
