Photographing The Contemporary Interior of a Central London Residence With Panayis Chrysovergis

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.

Gear Overload: A Glimpse Inside Shanghai’s Legendary Photography Market

One of the many reasons I have enjoyed being an ex-pat in Asia is the abundance of markets you can find throughout the region.  Whether it’s the textile markets in India, or the fish markets of Japan, or the floating markets found in Southeast Asia, they make commerce fun, and visiting one is a great way to get a glimpse of the local culture, its people, and the items they cherish.

Simon Devitt Speaks the Secrets Behind Photographing HOME Magazine’s Home of the Year

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.

The Inextricable Bond Between the Olympics and its Architecture

It’s (finally) Olympics time again, and you know what that means – it’s time to talk Olympics venue architecture – a topic fraught with divergent opinions on whether or not it makes sense to hold the games (and thus house said games) in a different city every couple of years.  The economic and environmental impacts of the games aside, the Olympic Games have given rise to some of the most iconic architecture this planet has ever seen. 

The Penguin Parade: Three Cameras, Two Days, and One Gorgeous Project by Peter Marko

 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.

Can a Photographer’s Image be Re-Posted on Social Media?

One of the most common forms of Copyright Infringement we come across as photographers is our images being on certain social media accounts or pages without our permission. Oddly enough, when the issue is even politely brought to the attention of the infringing account, the photographer can sometimes receive indifferent or even rude pushback.

Photographing TarraWarra In Between National Shutdowns, Fergus Floyd Finishes His 2 Year Long Personal Project

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.

The Story of an Image – GMP’s Bund SOHO

This edition of Story of an Image is not necessarily a showcase of how you should go about creating a beautiful image, but rather an exercise in being resourceful if you ever find yourself unprepared and without the proper tools.  This is the story of a somewhat random outing in Shanghai which led to the creation of one of my favorite images I have ever taken. 

Lightforge Photography Documents the Recently Renovated Auckland War Memorial Museum’s South Atrium

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.

Rural Studio: Love Stories – A Documentary by Filmmaker Dave Anderson and Photographer Tim Hursley

With Independence Day in America having just passed, I was feeling nostalgic when considering what I wanted to share with our audience this month.  I decided to go back to my academic roots.  Being from the South, I recalled how nearby Auburn University’s Rural Studio, and in particular its visionary co-founder, Samuel ‘Sambo’ Mockbee, were so inspirational to me during my architecture studies way back when.

Mission Impossible: The Perils of Inaccurate GPS Data

Have you ever thought about the accuracy of GPS data? I actually didn’t, until I was commissioned to take a photo of a particular place before any work was done, and a photo from the same exact vantage point after the place has been renovated. Would that even be possible? I didn’t know, but I responded with my standard answer “Sure, no problem!”
