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!

A Perfect Greek Hilltop Villa Photographed by Athens Based Ioanna Roufopoulou

Today we’re taking a little trip to where no Project of the Week has gone before — Greece! I’ve had my eye on the incredible work of Athens-based architectural photographer Ioanna Roufopoulou for quite some time now, and am excited to share this series with you.

Let’s jump in and check out Ioanna’s photographs of a gorgeous villa perched upon a hill in Syros, Greece for block722architects.

Dave Burk Masterfully Photographs the Ever-Changing Reflective Facade of SOM’s National Museum of the US Army

We’re excited to have our friend Dave Burk back on Project of the Week today, this time with another absolute gem crafted by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill! Feast your eyes on Dave’s photographs of the National Museum of the United States Army. With its ever-changing reflective stainless steel facade, Dave harnessed different lighting conditions and compositions that resulted in a powerful, unreplicable, and otherworldly looking series — one that we’ve all been swooning over here at the APA camp.

“The Value of Architectural Photography” With Rob Van Esch

Rob has written another thought-provoking book that we’re excited to share, “The Value of Architectural Photography, and How to Increase It.”

Join The Crew: APALMANAC is Hiring

Shew! Can you believe the second birthday of APALMANAC’s first published article is coming up? Call us nostalgic but we’ve been reflecting on our growth — not just as a website, but as a community. It seems as if the shroud surrounding the tiny niche of architectural and interiors photography has been drawn back, revealing an incredible network of people who are eager to share advice, workflows, pricing, and business strategy — and we are so proud to play a little part in helping expand that community.

Architectural Photography Studio Tarry & Perry are the First to Document the Completed ‘Concrete House’ as Featured on Grand Designs

Step inside this perfect concrete monolith with us today for Project of the Week before it is revisited on Grand Designs this February. If it feels familiar to you, you probably spotted the unfinished home on the show in 2018. This brute is back, finished up, and photographed for the first time since its completion by the incredible architectural photography studio Tarry and Perry.

Get A Grip With Dennis Radermacher’s 3D Printed Canon TS-E Knobby

3D Printing is a beautiful thing. It gives those with the tools and the patience the superpowers to engineer a custom solution to design problems. That’s the case of New Zealand based architectural photographer Dennis Radermacher of Lightforge Photography.

Frustrated by the small shift knobs on the Canon TS-E lenses — especially when working in the heat or cold — plus the fact that Dennis couples his lenses with the Rogeti TS-E frame (making the knob access even more cumbersome) Dennis taught himself how to 3D print an ergonomic knob extension that is beefier and more accessible than Canon’s.
