Announcing the 2023 Architectural Photography Competition

We have learned so much over the last two years and are proud to launch what is surely our best competition yet. We remain committed to being the only photography competition solely by and for architectural photographers. Given the unique criteria by which professional architectural photography is commissioned and created, it must be judged with a critical eye, and as a result the majority of “architectural photography” contests have not done the best job of accurately judging architectural photography.

Where is the Architectural Photography Almanac Going?

You’ve probably noticed that things have been a little quiet around here recently. I definitely understand and feel it as well!

If you love deeply atmospheric and mood-filled imagery — and architectural photos that just feel special — look no further than these pictures of Flock Hill for Warren and Mahoney by Auckland-based photographer Sam Hartnett.

Reflections on the Devitt + Kelley Finland Workshop

When an American photographer I had come to know purely through the ‘gram suggested we run a workshop on a remote island in the Finnish Archipelago, I was living in a very surreal time, the world was in the middle of a global pandemic, twerking was all over Tik Tok, oxygen tanks were being buried in backyards in India, and people were baking sourdough with reckless abandon.

What Makes A Great Client?

If you’ve been in this photography game for any amount of time, you most likely have some clients that you love, and perhaps a few who you’d be happy to never meet again.  Having high-quality clients is the bedrock of a fruitful career. Without clients, photography is just your hobby.
