Gabe Border in Boise Idaho is just the ultimate coolest because, not only is he an incredible architectural photographer, but he is also a falconer which is the most badass thing ever. Gabe also fly fishes, and rolls up his sleeves to do his own home renovation projects. We’ll have to get him back for an interview, eh?
My newest architectural photography crush is on the lovely Tess Kelly. Tess photographs architecture, interiors, and still life all across the globe, but calls Melbourne home. Her work has a gorgeous style that is dripping with great coloration, contrast, and light.
This particular project of Clifton Hill residence built by Blueprint Construction Company for DX Architects, and styled by Larritt-Evans, is ultra interesting because it is a heritage architecture project.
Bouncing between Paris, Milan, and Copenhagen, globally revered photographer Simone Bossi shoots film as an exercise in slowing things down.
As photographers in a digital era, it is easy to overcomplicate things, firing off a myriad of brackets, adding lights, putting up nets and screwing on filters, luminosity masking with plug ins, and on and on.
Aussie photographer Mike Baker is known for his incredibly bold and lively product, advertising, and corporate photo work. He brings a dash of this punch and cleanliness to his architectural work, but does it in a more subdued way. His images of Courtyard House for Life Spaces group is a great example of his approach to architecture and interiors, so let’s check it out!
This Project of the Week brings something a bit different to the table, so put your learning caps on and get ready for a wealth of knowledge! This week, the lovely Kendall McCaugherty from Hall+Merrick Photographers spoke with me in-depth on how she photographed the Chicago Euromonitor Office by Eastlake Studio.
Welcome aboard this week’s featured project with photographer Peter Clarke and the incredible home, Casa X by Branch Studio. Peter and Casa X both reside in Australia, the land of great architecture, so you’re in for a treat! What is most noteworthy about this project though, is how Peter documented the space with such drama and mood while still observing the unspoken “rules” of architectural photography.
I’ve often heard that if you want to be good at something, you need to niche down and become a specialist. While this often rings true for most aspects of work and —well—photography, Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and the crew at Norm Architects make me think otherwise. Norm, based in Denmark, is primarily an architectural firm, yet it spreads its reach into art direction, product design, furniture creation, and photography.
Buckle up because photographer Rafael Gamo is taking us to Mexico for this week’s featured project. Situated smack dab in the middle of the Tlalpuente Forest of southern Mexico City, we’ll find the Tlalpuente house by PPAA Architects. According to PPAA, the house has no neighbors and was built to capitalize on the 360-degree view of the trees and landscape encircling it.
Now that this Project of the Week has made its debut with Dwell, we can introduce this gem to you! Behold, The Netsch Residence, built in 1974 by renowned architect Walter Netsch, and freshly remodeled by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. This spirited and complex space was photographed by the wonderful architectural photographer, Dave Burk, our featured photographer this week.
This is probably the hippest thing I’ll ever say in my life, but if you’re into the San Diego brunch scene AND an architectural photographer, this Project of the Week by Zack Benson is your Holy Grail.
I came across Marcus Stork on Instagram and was immediately drawn in by the quality of light and depth of his compositions. Marcus’ photographs have a delicate and quiet air about them and include that effortless Scandinavian styling that is just so beautiful to look at. One particular series that I love is this week’s featured project designed by Stylingbolaget.
On this fine episode of Project of the Week, we’re headed to St. Louis with the lovely architectural photographer Megan Lorenz. Megan’s entire body of work has a clean yet tactile feeling about it, and every image is sublimely lit. This particular project — Park East for interior designer Jacob Laws — is no exception!
This week’s featured project takes us to the shores of Lac St-François in Adstock, Canada, where we’ll find L’Accostée House by Bourgeois / Lechasseur Architects. L’Accostée House is a large, beautiful home with strong contemporary shapes that are softened by warm and organic wooden building materials.
Steeped in golden paint and graphic textures, behold, one of my favorite architectural projects ever!
MVRDV’s The Imprint is a pair of buildings in the Paradise City entertainment complex of Incheon, South Korea. Crafted with the purpose of art-entertainment in mind, MVRDV was able to incorporate fresh and eccentric features in this project, deeming The Imprint a work of art itself.
This week’s featured project takes us all the way to Imingfjell Norway, where we’ll be drooling over Arkitektværelset’s Hooded Cabin as photographed by Marte Garmann. Marte is based in Oslo, and photographs all of her projects — whether architecture, food, or lifestyle images — with the same drama, darkness, and gorgeous pockets of light that you’ll find here at The Hooded Cabin.
Human Interaction and bold color is the name of the game in this Project of the Week!
Eugeni Pons, an architectural photographer from Spain, who I admire greatly for his rich use of lighting and beautiful incorporation of color, does another thing masterfully — gives life to his photographs by way of including people in the scenes.
