During my recent interview with Jeffrey Totaro, he had mentioned that Capture One Pro is a huge part of his post-production workflow. He has partnered up with Digital Transitions to run a Capture One webinar on April 17th. More specifically looking at how Capture One Pro integrates into his workflow and giving an in-depth look at how he uses the application both in the field and back in the studio.
Most of us are loafing around on our phones more than ever due to COVID-19, myself included. I’ve always thought it would be fun to put together a list of the best architecture photography instagram accounts to follow, so today the inspiration struck and I’ve decided to put everything in one easy list for you to check out.
Recently, I discovered a short film called Private View: Santiago Calatrava by New York-based filmmaker Alexandra Liveris, which affords a rare glimpse into the mind behind some of the world’s most famous pieces of architecture.
Earlier this year when I had interviewed Art Sanchez, part of the conversation was focused around the second half of his business: videography.
Just in case you thought a $60,000, 150mp medium format camera was just not quite enough, Phase One Industrial just announced their latest monster system.
By combining two of their current 150mp sensors, Phase One Industrial has been able to produce what they call a “large format” aerial camera system.

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.
Beloved British Baking Show Contestant YouTuber Tom Scott is known for his short, humorous, informational videos covering everything from sending garlic bread into space to navigating the interior of the brain with neurosurgeons. In one of his most ambitious projects to date, Tom Scott tackles a topic that is close to the hearts of every artist: copyright.
There are two categories of photographers in the world—those whose work has been infringed, and those whose work will be infringed. Sooner or later, it’s almost certain that it will happen to you. You’ll be casually scrolling through your social media feeds, or maybe researching a potential client’s website, when suddenly, you pause in disbelief as the reality sets in: your work has been used without your prior knowledge or permission.
I photograph a lot of homes for a lot of different clients with a lot of different end uses for those photographs. While in a perfect world I’d get a photo credit every time my work was submitted, sometimes that doesn’t happen and it’s up to me to get it fixed. Whether or not you think photo credit is important (it is, don’t @ me), you should always have any errors or omissions in credit resolved as soon as you can.
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.
As you may know, I’m not shy about megapixels. For architectural photography, I prefer more resolution over less. There are several reasons for this and it’s mostly down to flexibility; with a higher resolution camera you have more flexibility when it comes to post production, printing, cropping, and scaling.
Le Corbusier is one of my favourite 20th century architects not only for his brutalist architecture and how he integrated surrealism into his work as well. Even to this day his work continues to be revered by many Le Corb fans the world over. One of his most ambitious yet important project was the Chandigarh Capitol Complex project which came to fruition at the request of then Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.
I think it’s safe to say that the current pandemic sucks for everyone involved. Short of toilet paper manufacturers, pretty much everyone on planet earth is dealing with ramifications and fallout of the ongoing…issue. A few days ago I asked a group of photographer colleagues how they were being impacted, and received a wide range of responses and opinions.
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.
As a professional airport architect, HOK‘s Peter Ruggiero designs airports for a living, and he has been hard at work for years to improve New York’s most notorious, and Joe Biden’s favorite airport, LaGuardia. So what actually goes into optimizing the design of an airport terminal? This incredible video walks us through the wildly complex process.
Years ago when I first started exploring architectural photography as a career option, I had come across the work of Jeffrey Totaro on Arch Daily and was immediately fascinated with his gorgeous compositions and technical expertise. Hailing from Pennsylvania, his name is synonymous with the American architecture scene; he’s been photographing iconic architecture longer than most of us have been able to discern light from dark.
San Francisco photographer Peter Lyons has been working all over the Bay Area for years now, and since the advent of cameras using built-in GPS, he’s geo-tagged nearly every photo he’s taken. Peter recently shared a screen shot of his work history and I was blown away.
As far as I’m concerned, Peter embodies the image of a classic working photographer.
Today, I jump into a large 3-part question that I have strong thoughts on.
