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!

Documenting The Crossroad of Old and New Architecture with Tess Kelly

My newest architectural photography crush is on the lovely Tess Kelly. Tess photographs architecture, interiors, and still life all across the globe, but calls Melbourne home. Her work has a gorgeous style that is dripping with great coloration, contrast, and light.

Peter Clarke Gets Dark and Moody in the Land Down Under

Welcome aboard this week’s featured project with photographer Peter Clarke and the incredible home, Casa X by Branch Studio.

What is most noteworthy about this project though, is how Peter documented the space with such drama and mood while still observing the unspoken “rules” of architectural photography.

A Man of Many Talents, Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen Designs and Documents a Traditional Danish Country Home

I’ve often heard that if you want to be good at something, you need to niche down and become a specialist. While this often rings true for most aspects of work and —well—photography, Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and the crew at Norm Architects make me think otherwise. Norm, based in Denmark, is primarily an architectural firm, yet it spreads its reach into art direction, product design, furniture creation, and photography.
