One beautiful thing I have always loved about architectural and interiors photography is the wide scope of clients and projects that fall under its umbrella. Last week on POTW, we looked at a project made for a one-of-a-kind rug shop. This week, we’ll look at a project made for a lighting design manufacturer.

Architectural Photography Almanac has partnered with Leslie Burns, an intellectual property attorney based California to answer reader questions about intellectual property and the law. By far the most common reader questions have to do with licensing, fair use, and intellectual property infringement and enforcement, so we thought it was the right time to make a commitment getting a professional involved to help architectural photographers around the world better understand copyright law and avoid the headaches and chicanery that go along with navigating the world of image use and rights.
Today, Project of the Week leads to us to a lovely series by one of my very favorite photographers, Ishita Sitwala. Ishita creates one mindblowing set of images after another, but this particular project of the Jaipur Rugs storefront is a unique and complex collection.

This week’s featured project takes us to the docks of Dublin where photographer Jamie Hackett is masterfully showing off The EXO building by Shay Cleary Architects.

Robert Rieger is a phenomenal editorial photographer specializing in architecture, interiors, and portraiture. He is based in Berlin, but works all over the world. Robert’s work is rich in contrast and dramatic light. It radiates a warm, sun-drenched, golden feeling.
Camera Cages are just for videographers, right? In this review I am going to show you why I love a cage for my hybrid work between architectural photography and videography. From day one I put my Canon R5 into a camera cage and only let it out of there for trips with the family, where I want to carry minimal equipment.
With another APALMANAC Architecture Photography Awards season on the horizon, I’ve found myself going back and pouring over the longlisted entries from the 2021 awards. One project I was particularly stricken by was Miranda Kimberlin’s photographs of Taviawk by Imbue Design.
There have long been rumors that Fujifilm would launch tilt shift lenses, and now they have finally shown off what they have been working on. Screen capture from X summit 2022 For a long time, GFX photographers have used Canon’s TSE lenses.

For the past few years I’ve been focusing my energy on establishing myself as an interior design and architecture photographer and with that came a lot of very expensive purchases.

Connor Daly is a photographer based in London who has a myriad of fine art projects in his quiver. Despite its seemingly minimal qualities, Connor’s work is dripping with color, mood, and light.
