As a professional architecture photography, it is important to me to express the design language in my work, alongside an emphasis on the functionality and uniqueness of the space’s design, with proper use of it and its resulting contexts.
The Advantage of Architectural Photography for Architects when Dealing with Clients
Professional architectural photography will assist architects and interior designers to showcase their works in an impressive form, and to distribute and solidify their name in the industry among colleagues and clients, thereby facilitating transaction closing with additional clients.
A professional portfolio can impressively reflect the design style of the architect and/or interior designer and testifies to their creativity, and technical and conceptual skills.
Now more than ever, there is great importance in the marketing value of the photographed picture, which is directly impacted by the professional and technical capabilities of the architectural photographer.
The shooting angle, correct exposure, accurate combination of natural and artificial light, styling, composition, etc. – must all be of the highest, unwavering quality in the portfolio’s architectural photos.
The photos I will create will be clear, beautiful and impressive, and will serve you faithfully for any purpose.
The Importance of Image
Processing in Architectural Photos
Other than impressive shooting angles and proper use of the space’s light, image processing is where the personal style and creative talent of the architectural photographer come into play.
As an architectural photographer who has been working with leading architecture companies and designers, the processing process is a direct continuation of the work done on set and is done at the highest technical levels.
Such image processing work requires great skill and is meant to provide our clients with visually impressive, high-quality and professional marketing materials. You can use these architectural photos in any digital platform and in print. For instance, for publication in leading journals both locally and worldwide.
My job as an architectural photographer is to create an aesthetic photo of the space.
Even in cases where there are functional elements in the space of the room that are less pretty and might draw the viewer’s eyes (e.g., A/C unit, power sockets or connections), the image processing process cleans the walls and ceiling from any such functional element that might derogate from the aesthetics and design of the space and disrupt the image’s integrity.
Moreover, sunlight is much stronger than artificial lighting fixtures. Therefore, balance between proper and pretty brightness in the photographed space and an exterior impressive and visible space cannot be achieved with one exposure.
For this reason, during editing, I combine several photos with various exposures into one impressive architectural photo that has balance between the brightness and colorfulness of the interior and exterior.
Preparing for the Shooting Day
First and foremost, the property owner must know that architectural photography is a time-consuming process, which is why it is recommended to prepare for a long shoot that does not take a mere one to two hours, as most people tend to think.
It is very important to ensure that the house is clean and tidy, and properly furnished.
If the client (architect or designer) believes that accessories are missing at the house, I recommend preparing in advance and bring additional items to the shoot in order to enrich the space and emphasize the design work. In my experience as an architectural photographer, such additional items have done wonders and improved the architectural photos in the majority of projects.
