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!

Engineer Turned Photographer Ales Vyslouzil Gets A Foothold In The UAE Market

Ales Vyslouzil is an interesting man. He has moved back and forth between the Czech Republic and Dubai. Ales was once an engineer but decided he hated it and changed plans after a heart-to-heart chat with a friend. The trajectory of his career and his life is fascinating and empowering. Ales has been through it all — a big move, a career reset, family trouble — and through his great attitude, hard hustle, and willingness to take feedback, this fledgling photographer has really gotten a strong foothold as an architectural photographer in Dubai.

Making Time For A Personal Project, Radek Úlehla Travels From Prague to Lisbon to Photograph the Champalimaud Foundation

Meet my new friend Radek Úlehla, an architectural photographer from Prague. Radek instantly made me feel old, as he is just a spry 26, but then made it up to me by telling me how punk this shoot was — traveling far, fighting the weather, and inevitably getting kicked out by security. It’s a great story with great images, which I appreciate.

Can Exposure Pay The Bills? Mass Collective Talks Licensing and Pricing in ‘CREDIT FOR BREAKFAST’

It seems like more than ever, architectural photographers are battling copyright infringement, ignorance towards licensing, and confusion over usage rights — not to mention the dreaded “but this will be great exposure” remark.

On Wednesday, April 28th 2021 at 7:00 pm BST (2:00 pm EST) Mass Collective in collaboration with VIEW Pictures will be hosting an online talk discussing the importance of licensing and contracts in the photography business.

3D Print Lightforge’s Camranger2 Arca Plate Adapter

I love when I see Dennis Radermacher’s name in my inbox because it means he has conjured up another brilliant 3D printed solution to one of the many small frustrations we photographers run into.

For those of us who have made it part of our workflow, I think we can all agree that the Camranger platform is incredible and powerful, but leaves something to be desired when it comes to —well—where to put it.
