Architecture

Architectural  photography aims to capture buildings in the  best  possible  light, communicating the sense  of  place  inherent to each project. With a degree and ten years practice in  architecture before becoming an architectural photographer, my eye is well trained to understand buildings and their relationship to landscape. In addition to producing images that promote new construction, my architectural photography  also focuses on  urban landscapes,  regeneration  / heritage & development and is suitable for architects, and property owners, and I work with a range of clients (housing associations, cultural organisations, developers, construction industry and council organisations, artists and publishers) who have an interest in the  built  environment. Back in 2008 I had success in a Glasgow Institute of Architects Photography competition judged by renowned photographer Coin Prior,  winning the Urban Landscape category. This encouraged me to set out on a journey of self employment from which I have not looked back. Working between Glasgow and Edinburgh, I am well positioned to reach most places in Scotland, and regularly travel further afield. Photography is at the centre of my practice, yet with my years of architectural employment and a firm interest in the shaping of places, and landscapes, I am committed to combining  experience in the built environment through written work, illustration, collaborations and consultancy.

I use a range of  wide  angle, and  tilt – shift lenses  with the latest software for  image processing and retouching where required. Often establishing  a brief through dialogue, images can be customised as required.  Following discussions with the client, an  understanding of a building is  gathered through initial site visits, and viewing drawings where possible, establishing  compositions, angles, and best times of day for shooting. Attention to detail is key. Images are supplied in a range of formats from web use to high quality prints.
