Use the AIA & ASMP’s Guide to Commissioning Architectural Photography as a Powerful Client Resource

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.

-ASMP & AIA from their collaborative “Commissioning Architectural Photography” guide

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!

Kevin Brost Photographs an Underground Speakeasy in Phoenix

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.

Today we’re looking at an underground cocktail bar in Phoenix called 36 Below by House of Form.

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.

Making Emotive Images of a Canadian Lakefront Cottage With Lauren Miller

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.

How to Price Real Estate Photography

Ok, full disclosure…I got out of the real estate photography game a few years ago. But like myself, I would assume many architectural photographers used real estate as a launching pad for their professional careers. Via some other local photographers and “people watching” certain Facebook groups, I still keep my ear to the ground somewhat on this genre.

Transport Yourself to a Wharf in Maine With Architectural Photographer Trent Bell

Maybe you know Maine-based architectural photographer Trent Bell from his awesome AD&P Podcast, or his expansive client list, AIA awards, or his endless quiver of beautiful work. As I pour through his portfolio, each project is just off-the-rails gorgeous. It makes sense, as Trent is an architect turned photographer, so he brings a solid understanding of each piece of architecture that he is photographing.

DJI Mavic 3 – Are The Upgrades Worth The Hefty Price?

After a longer than expected wait, DJI has unveiled the newest iteration in its flagship drone series – the Mavic 3, a release that pushes their Mavic line into the professional realm.  I wasn’t able to get my hands on one before writing this article, but I will be renting one later this month and plan to report back with my own personal experience on how I think this drone stacks up to the Mavic 2 Pro and the Air 2s. 

Trent Bell and Eugene Colberg Discuss the Relevance of Photography for Architects

How can you make a living by doing what you love – for us, that’s taking photos of buildings and interiors – while there are thousands of others doing the same?

For me, there is only one answer to that question: learn how to add value to the business of your client. There are many different ways to make an impactful difference that allows you to stand out from your competition.

It’s Black Friday Deal Time at B&H

As we all know, good photography equipment is expensive, but November is coming to an end and that means one thing – Black Friday is here, and it is time to get some shiny new equipment!

Even though specialised equipment for architectural photography is a bit niche and it is not easy to find it discounted, there are some nice discounts on more popular equipment like camera bodies, computers, and lighting options that will come in handy when you are taking some great shots of architecture.

Removing Objects From Complex Backgrounds

As architectural photographers, we regularly have to deal with removing unwanted objects from an image. Over the course of time, and after building your own experience, you probably have found a few favorite ways to do so. I personally am endlessly searching for ways to improve my post-production workflow, especially because Photoshop’s instruments are always improving.

How To Register Your Copyright in the United States

Coming off the heels of our recent article sharing Andrew Keithly’s excel macro to help speed up the process of filling out your copyright registration form, I thought it would be prudent to share another video with a more comprehensive breakdown detailing the process of copyright registration (in the US) – a start-to-finish explanation beginning with image prep all the way through the registration process. 

Hélène Binet Retrospective Opens at London’s Royal Academy

Tasked with photographing and documenting spaces and structures mostly for commercial purposes, a lot of what is produced in our genre of photography will be hard pushed to be considered a work of art, especially considering its technical and sometimes rigid nature.

Select individuals however seem to have something extra that allows them to push their work into something greater, something more than simple information about the subject at hand.

Building Australia’s Tallest Skyscraper – Melbourne’s Southbank by Beulah

Melbourne’s Southbank by Beulah Tower is poised to become the tallest building in the southern hemisphere once completed.  The two-tower megadevelopment will eventually rise to 366 meters (1,200 feet) and transform Australia’s ‘garden city.’ 

The project was born out of an international competition held back in 2018 which was eventually won by a co-authored design by UN Studio and Cox Architecture.
