Of all of the categories for the 2021 Architectural Photography Awards, the Early Career and Emerging Talent award was hands down the most popular. Not only were we blown away by the sheer quantity of new architectural and interiors photographs on the scene, but also by the high quality of the submissions.
Today we’re checking out an absolutely beautiful project by the wonderful photographer, Tony Colangelo!
Tony was hired by his long-time client South Shore Cabinetry (SSC) to photograph a stunning cabinetry/millwork installation in their recent project. 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.
This week’s featured project takes us all the way to Shanghai with architectural photographer Rex Zou. I’ve been following Rex’s work for a while now, and love both his clean style, and his penchant for documenting massive buildings in bustling cityscapes.
Today’s very cool project is by Californian architectural photographer Josh Bustos. The architecture of Canyon Canopy House itself is classic Californian – full of clerestory windows, texture, vaulted ceilings, and yet a quiet simplicity. The house is a lovely backdrop for an incredible selection of art – including bits of the Berlin Wall!
Our friends at Mass Collective have put together a wonderful initiative called ‘A Print for Ukraine,’ specifically geared toward architectural photographers who are seeking ways to help support Ukrainian people affected by the ongoing Russian invasion:
Photographers documenting architecture and the built environment from around the world have joined forces to offer their work for sale in aid of those affected by the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, in an initiative organized by the London-based Mass Collective.
This week’s featured project is absolutely stunning.
This curious and charming piece of residential architecture has been masterfully photographed by Luis Abba, an architectural photographer working in Mendoza, Argentina. Luis has documented Alberto Tonconogy & Asociados‘ Casa de Piedra in a way that infuses the photographs with a sense of place and time.
Meet my new friend, Louisville Kentucky based architectural photographer Justin L. Jordan! Justin’s lovely work sports a cleanness and crispness that I admire. While this project itself is different from the majority of his portfolio – which includes a healthy dosage of residential projects, interiors, and glossy renditions of corporate offices and buildings – Justin’s shoot for Louisville’s Waterfront Botanical Gardens fits perfectly in his body of work.
Welcome to Casa Silencio, a boutique hotel and Palenque mezcalero for El Silencio mezcal in Xaagá Mexico. This retreat honors the ancient art and ceremonial process of making mezcal. It lies about 50 minutes outside of Oaxaca, inhabiting a former mezcal production facility that has since been overhauled by Mexico-based architect Alejandro D´Acosta.
Today we are heading to a modern family home on Lake Brome by Atelier Pierre Thibault. Wonderful Project of the Week veteran Maxime Brouillet, whose beautiful style you may remember from his photographs of an angular cabin on the St. Laurence river, has masterfully documeneted this tranquil retreat.
This week’s featured project is a truly brilliant series by Parisian photographer Laurent Kronental. Laurent’s series Souvenir d’un Futur documents the lives of senior citizens who live in “Grands Ensembles” (large housing projects) around Paris.
Shot on 4×5 film, Laurent’s photographs are described as “tinted with melancholic, yet brave disenchantment.
In 2021, Architizer voted Ema Peter one of the top 5 architectural photography studios in the world. It is easy to see why. She makes stunning image after image and portrays projects in a way that shows the cleverness of the architecture, as well as its use and relation to humanity. One such project that I particularly love is BlackCliff house by Mcleod Bovell.
Today’s featured project takes us to Konin, Poland where we’ll be checking out a contemporary residence by STOPROCENT Architekci called “K House.”
K House was built over a long span of time. It was started in 2012, and after many unforeseen circumstances and changes, it was finally wrapped up in 2021!
You just wrapped up an amazing shoot and delivered the images to your client, who loves them as always. A week or two later, you’re contacted by a publication asking to use the images in a story they are running.
This is awesome! You’re over the moon and swelling with pride. But wait – what should you charge for publication usage of your photos?
We’re going back to Helsinki with past Project of the Week photographer Tuomas Uusheimo. Last time around, Tuomas showed us the Oodi Library, and today’s featured project shares a very similar shape and style. Like Oodi, the Terminal 2 building expansion of the Helsinki Airport is by ALA Architects.
“This project was all about the landscape and creating a retreat home for an Olympia, WA couple to get lost in the land with their dogs and with birding, which is one of their passions” recounts architectural photographer Lara Swimmer as she shares the story behind her time photographing High Prairie House by EB Architects.
Images play a major role in defining how we come to know architecture and interior
spaces. Because photography is pivotal in understanding the built environment, choosing a professional to photograph your project is a most important consideration.
If you’re an architectural photographer looking to have an excellent new year of jobs with good client experiences, communication, and expectations, we have an awesome tool for you!
For our final Project of the Week this year, we’re closing things out with a very cool set of images by Arizona-based architectural photographer Kevin Brost.
What I love about this series is how Kevin was able to make a beautiful, cohesive set of images with plenty of mood, all in an area void of natural light.

On today’s rendition of Project of the Week, we are taking a look at a gorgeous set of photographs by architectural and interiors photographer Lauren Miller. Lauren is based out of Toronto and her work has a quiet and textural quality about it that I just love.
The particular project we will be taking a look at today is Ashley Botten Design’s Lake Rosseau Cottage in Ontario.
