Architecture

Architectural photography communicates a building project. Good quality natural light, helps to distill architecture into a 2D composition. 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. I work with a range of clients (architects, housing associations, cultural organisations, developers, builders, council organisations, businesses, 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 Colin 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 background in architectural employment, and a firm interest in the shaping of places, and landscapes, I also enjoy combining written work, and illustration, with photography.

I use a range of wide angle, and tilt-shift lenses with the latest software for image editing where required. Following discussions with the client, an understanding of a building is gathered through initial site visits, and viewing drawings where possible; establishing 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.

Thanks for looking and please be in touch should you want any further info. I would be happy to discuss any requirements you may have.
