On Christmas Day in 2015, brushfires tore through the south coast of the Otway ranges on Victoria’s Great Ocean Road. With the entire forest gone, the landslides came, devastating what was left of the Wye River area. The landslides blocked the iconic Great Ocean Road, which is the only access to and from the region.
You might remember Alex Nye from his stellar commended entry in Architizer’s photo challenge, or the videos on Instagram of him climbing precarious objects to get incredible perspectives of what he is shooting.
Today Alex is back with another gem for the architectural photography community.
Way back at the beginning of APALMANAC’s conception, Brooke Holm was the very first interviewee on the site. It is easy to see why. Her photographs are delicate and beautiful, full of form and line and sweeping dreamy light. It’s a no-brainer that Brooke’s photos of Sean Connolly in the Dubai Opera should be on Project of the Week.
For this week’s featured project, we’re going to take a look at a big ‘ole classic American home in Pennsylvania, because it holds quite a colorful surprise! Architectural and interiors photographer Brian Wetzel has been kind enough to share heaps about this very cool project. I’m so excited to shake things up from the typical modern and contemporary shaped POTW buildings, and check out this stately home boasting craftsman details and a few fresh and funky design elements!
Alright everybody, we’re heading into the sale season time of year! This week at B&H, you can get your hands on some camera bodies and MacBooks for a great price.

Frank Gehry’s Luma Arles is a striking building. Situated in the heart of the Parc des Ateliers, the new 56 meter tall stainless steel clad tower emerging out of a glass drum is a nod to Van Gogh. The mixed use space holds everything from an exhibition hall to private offices, a library, and even an event venue.
Today’s featured project takes us to a lovely cellar door in Tasmania by Cumulus Studio. The amazing Anjie Blair was kind enough to share her photographs and a bit about her process on this shoot, so let’s jump right on in with her favorite shot of the day!”
“When I was setting up for a one-point perspective of the external entry view, the male model was driving up the drive and his little daughter came out to greet him,” Anjie explains.
This weeks featured project comes to us out of Central London. Panayis Chrysovergis photographed this unique private residence, and I’m excited to share all of its bold graphic qualities, leading lines, and interesting textures with you. Let’s jump in!
Right off the bat we see this home’s contemporary interior is steeped in rectilinear shapes and full of punchy black / white contrast.
Simon Devitt makes it hard not to be romantic about architecture…and art…and really, the world.
He speaks less like someone telling his process, and more like a man speaking poetry — divulging a riddle that is the secret to life itself.
In a way, it is.
There is no talk of camera kits or CaptureOne vs Lightroom or setting up compositions, but instead, how to be.
Peter Marko’s latest project is simply amazing. The shoot spanned two days on location but took months in the making because of permitting, weather, and of course, Covid related lockdowns. Armed with three cameras, a slider, a gimbal, a drone, zero assistants, and no brief from the client, Peter crafted this beautiful film of TERROIR’S Penguin Parade Visitor Center.
Outside of Melbourne in the Yarra Valley sits an extraordinary venue that does it all. The sprawling 400 hectares of TarraWarra consists of two entities, the TarraWarra Museum of Art, and the TarraWarra Estate — consisting of a winery, restaurant, and cellar door.
Melbourne-based architectural photographer Fergus Floyd set about photographing TarraWarra as a personal project in 2019.
Dennis Radermacher — our 3D printing hero, and Project of the Week star — has constructed a bit of a different gift to the architectural photographer community today. Weighing the pros cons of working with an assistant, Dennis delves into the nitty-gritty of shooting solo and why it works best for his architectural photography workflow.
Today’s featured project takes us to Moscow, Russia where we’ll be checking out VOX Architects‘ World Class Alekseevskaya. World Class has some…ahem…world class photographs by architectural photographer Sergey Ananiev.
Sergey’s images all sport an ultra-clean and tidy look while still maintaining a sense of realism as mood.
When I see Dennis Radermacher of Lightforge Photography‘s name pop up in my notifications, I know it’s going to be a great day. Dennis — an architectural photographer based in Christchurch, NZ — is usually sending the APA crew his latest and greatest 3D printed creations. This time around though, my inbox contained a newsletter from Dennis showing off his recent projects.
This week’s featured project is a real beauty by Seattle-based architectural photographer Rafael Soldi. We’ll be checking out his dreamy photographs of Beach Drive by Revolve Development. Rafael has been kind enough to share so much about his process and this lovely shoot, and I’m excited to share his intel and work with you all.
If you’re looking to add some odds and ends to your gear kit, now is the time!
B&H just announced a three day sale with huge price cuts on hundreds and hundreds of items. I popped over to their site to scope out the deals, and while there aren’t really any big-ticket items like camera bodies or Arca Swiss cubes (we can dream, right?),
In an unassuming late-modernist building in Saint John’s Wood near the legendary Abbey Road crossing, sits Maido Sushi. Once an old post office, this architectural gem was given quite the facelift by Child Studio. Careful to preserve the original modernist charm, but introduce “a subtle blend of European and Japanese design influences” to the interior, Child Studio crafted a perfectly balanced space.
Today’s top-notch POTW is a parking garage. Yep…a parking garage. This story is full of drama, with stray bullets delaying the shoot date and Garey and his assistant hauling gear all over the streets of Atlanta!
That’s right, today we are checking out the gorgeous work of Georiga-based architectural photographer Garey Gomez.
This week’s featured project takes us to a small German village with photographer Paulina Ojeda. Paulina’s work sports a very natural and unfussy style, giving off a solid sense of place that works perfectly for the greenhouse-inspired “Merz Haus,” by architect Otto Merz. Paulina has a lot of great intel for us about this shoot, so I’ll let her take it away!
