Architectural photography is a challenging discipline that involved photographing of interior or exterior views of buildings and similar structures that are both visually appealing and form an accurate record of their subjects. The best architectural photographers are adept in the use of advanced photographic techniques and specialised equipment.
When carrying out exterior architectural shots, the photographer usually takes best advantage of available daylight, or while taking shots at night, uses the ambient light from street lights, landscaping lights, the moonlight and so on. The landscaping surrounding the building can be very important to the overall composition of an architectural photograph, and might even be an essential component with which to communicate aesthetic harmony of the building with its wider setting.
When working to capture interior architectural shots, these can also be captured by taking advantage the ambient light coming through windows, roof lights and other points of artificial interior lighting. Depending on light levels, however, Architectural Photography professionals frequently make use of carefully balanced supplemental with which to improve the quality of lighting within a building.
Architectural photographers have a highly challenging role in capturing a building or structure in a fashion that is both pleasing to the eye and represents clearly the proportions of a building intended by the architect, with incredibly patience as well as exceptional skill with their equipment being paramount.
Some of us will only get to see certain landmark buildings through the interpretation of an architectural photographer, so the ability to capture the essence of a building at its finest is of great importance to both architect and photographer. This is one area where 360 Photo Survey stands out far above the rest as our director, Chris Billington has had the invaluable experience of running his his own multi-disciplinary architectural practice. Because of this experience he is able to capture images with not only the eye of a trained commercial photographer, but with the eye of an architectural designer.
