Lexi Taciak

OPERATIONS DIRECTOR

Howdy! I'm a Maryland-based photographer, retoucher, and writer. Here at APALMANAC, I curate Project of the Week and make sure things run smoothly behind the scenes.

When I'm not at my desk, you can usually catch me fishing or drinking a margarita.

Perfect Compositions and Clean Edits and With Lisa Petrole

Working a desk job doesn’t sound so bad if it’s at the Campari Group’s Canadian office. With Emil Teleki’s minimal fresh designs, this ain’t your daddy’s office. Photographed by the one and only Lisa Petrole, you’re in for clean colors, perfect compositions, and beautiful light.

Felix Mooneeram Documents the Effortlessly Cool ‘Ghost House’

BPN Architects’ Ghost House has been causing a ruckus across the architecture industry, winning awards and being picked up by publications; and rightfully so because it’s so stinkin’ cool! As-Cast concrete, huge windows, modern lighting, and bold symmetry make this house worthy of Project of the Week.

Finally, the Perfect Podcast for Architectural Photographers

On edit days when I’m glued to my desk, unable to sit in silence, I cruise through entire discographies of music by the bushel. In an attempt to harness the time I’m sitting still, and actually learn something, I’ve turned to podcasts. It seems though, that there’s an endless amount of things to do at my desk and a finite amount of genuinely good content to consume.

Bernat Tubau Photographs a New Take on a Bygone Nordic Church

In 2009, Våler Kirke (Vaaler Church for us English speaking folk) was lost to a fire. Mourned by the Norwegian town, a global competition was opened up for the church’s reconstruction. Architect Espen Surnevik was the victor and created the new design for the church which honors its heritage while putting a modern spin on the “rebirth” of the original structure from 1805.

Creating Deliciously Moody Vignettes With Haris Kenjar

It’s finally feeling like autumn on America’s East Coast, which means an ushering in of all things dark, autumnal colors palates, and a craving for cozy. The embodiment of all those feelings is this series of interior design photographs by Haris Kenjar.

Inside An Iconic Malibu Architectural Masterpiece with Roger Davies

Chase Daniel Takes Us Inside a Perfect Palm Springs Residence

It’s official. I want to be Chase Daniel when I grow up. I could go on and on about his work forever, but it’s probably just easier to show you how beautiful, clean, and well thought out each of his compositions are. I drooled over Chase’s website for an absurd amount of time — scrolling through Japanese/Texas fusion restaurants, smokey bars, cowboy boot peddlers, cabins, and ranches.

Here on Architectural Photography Almanac, we tend to focus on — well — architecture. Not to be overlooked though, is photography with an emphasis on the design of a space. This Project of the Week by Melbourne based Jack Lovel is great study on clean edits, simplicity, and the “less is more” aspect that shines when working with interior designers.

Aaron Leitz Photographs A Reformed New Zealand Cattle Farm

Ahh New Zealand; the magical land where perfect scenery and perfect architecture collide. This week’s shining example is a residential home by Cheshire Architects, with interior design by Terry Hunziker, photographed by Seattle based Aaron Leitz.

Joe Fletcher photographs an ‘Act of Congress’ build at Grand Staircase-Escalante

When you’re hired to photograph a resort, your end goal is to sell the experience. If there’s one guy who can pull this off, it’s architectural photographer Joe Fletcher. Three photographs into his collection on Amangiri Resort, and I was trying to justify spending my F-You Fund on a vacation.
