This is a shootout to the Nice Art Prints Youtube channel by Mitch Boyer. Unfortunately, I just discovered that the channel has not been updated since July 2020 due to business closure. However, it stands as one of the best resources out there for people interested in knowing more about printing.
Early last year, I had interviewed Pennsylvania based photographer, Jeffrey Totatro. Since 2008, Jeffrey has been hosting an architectural photography workshop in collaboration with the Palm Beach Photographic Centre.The four day workshop will consist of two 2-hour long sessions each day and include time for questions
Due to the current COVID pandemic, his 2021 workshop will be hosted virtually over Zoom.
We could all use a little trip these days, so this week, Cologne-based architectural photographer Annika Feuss is taking us on a visual vacation to Villa Extramuros. Extramuros is a Villa-Hotel in Arraiolos, Portugal, and Annika shows off its gorgeous graphic shape, tranquil interior, fruit trees, and relaxing air, just perfectly!
Dennis’s bumper shields the ultra shatter-able square corners of the filter, giving protection while in use and while changing out the filter.
A year after transitioning from architecture to architectural photography full-time, I wanted to share some initial thoughts comparing and contrasting the two professions. Hopefully, this will resonate with others who have, or are considering, making a similar sort of career transition.
Let’s face it, 2020 was rough. And while the new year will by no means see a complete return to anything resembling normal – there are certainly reasons to be hopeful. Vaccines are already beginning to be distributed in many countries and, more specific to our line of work, the construction industry seems to be picking back up.
3D Printing is a beautiful thing. It gives those with the tools and the patience the superpowers to engineer a custom solution to design problems. That’s the case of New Zealand based architectural photographer Dennis Radermacher of Lightforge Photography.
Frustrated by the small shift knobs on the Canon TS-E lenses — especially when working in the heat or cold — plus the fact that Dennis couples his lenses with the Rogeti TS-E frame (making the knob access even more cumbersome) Dennis taught himself how to 3D print an ergonomic knob extension that is beefier and more accessible than Canon’s.
I can’t think of a better way to kick off a new year of Project of the Weeks than with our friend, the great Andy Macpherson. Today, we’re traveling to sunny Brisbane, Australia to check out Andy’s photographs of Prospect Terrace. Prospect Terrace is a gorgeous project worked on by architect The Artificial, developer Zephyr Industries, and landscape architect LARC Collective.
Tom Harris is an incredibly talented and charmingly down-to-earth friend of mine who has worked for some of the most esteemed architectural firms in the United States documenting architecture across the country. He was kind enough to sit down with me for an hour and chat about his background and his process.
Tom Kundig is one of the founders of Seattle-based architectural firm Olson Kungdig. This podcast by Time Sensitive explores one of Tom’s greatest passions, mountain climbing, and how pursuit of the sport helped him become an internationally successful architect. Often when I look at architects who are as accomplished as Tom, I wonder what makes them tick in order to create such stunning architecture (for example, his Hale Lana House in Hawai with the striking cantilevered roof which got a lot of coverage in press this year).
With the blanket of snow, color palette, and the soft warm glow emanating out of Architectural Resources’s House In The Woods, I had originally thought that my new friend Kim Smith’s photographs would make a particularly cozy and holiday-ish Project of the Week. But actually, as she told me about this shoot and sent the entirety of the project over, it became so much more than that.
A few months ago I had interviewed Taran Wilkhu, an architectural photographer from London. In late November, he was part of a discussion with Nick Compton, the Senior Editor at Wallpaper* Magazine. The talk was hosted by Design District London.
Whether you are a photographer, architect, or interior designer, we all have this innate desire to see our works in print.
Finally! A review of the latest Arca Swiss geared head — the Core 75 — a.k.a the mini-cube, or the cylinder. The Core 75 is a strong contender to join the ranks of the ultimate geared head among the D4 and the C1 Cube.
Even with the amount of marketing around the Core 75, it is still difficult to find accurate information or a review delving into its features and functionality.
This week’s featured project comes to us from Sweden and showcases a lovely piece of civic architecture designed by the architects at Tengbom. This small scale project in Helsingborg — the Southern Entrance of the Helsingborg Central rail station (Knutpunkten) — is a prime example of how aesthetic minimalism can still pack big functionality in architecture.
When it comes to RAW photo editing software there are two major players: Lightroom and Capture One. I am always open to learning new software and I have tried to transport my whole editing process from Lr to C1 a couple of times before. C1s latest upgrade had a lot of marketing around it, so I decided to check the new features.
What do you get when you bring together a hotel brand known for producing design excellence to traditionally less-traveled locales, a gorgeous, geographically-unique location, and an architecture firm known for designing some of the most extraordinary cultural buildings in the world’s most populous country?
From my time spent pouring over various architecture and architecture photography throughout the world (wide web), I’ve noticed that Ukraine has some of the most interesting, rich with mood, and just downright cool projects, especially in the restaurant sector.
One of my new personal favorite Ukraninan photographers is Andriy Bezuglov, who has shared this beautiful project with us.
As I continue to mature as a photographer, I am finding that I learn most from fellow peers who share a more in-depth analysis about a single image – taking us through their thought process in how they constructed the image and why they chose a certain composition or a particular way to light the scene.
Today’s featured project takes us to Quezon City, Philippines where we’ll be checking out a home named Viewpoint House, designed by Jim Caumeron Design. This contemporary beauty was documented by Manila, Philippines based architectural photographer Bien Alvarez. I think you’ll agree that Bien’s photographs highlight the shapely design of this home while showing off the intricacies found within this space.
