My Approach and Core Values

For all commissioned architectural photography I:

  • Produce a shoot list, of the required images, this may be a rigidly defined set of images or guide for my artistic interpretation when on site. This can be done with your graphic or web designers if required. I’m also happy to provide you simple template if you wish to compile the list yourselves. This list is used on site to ensure all the required images are captured.
  • Use solar path analyses to predict the best time of year and day to photograph any architecture and therefore create the strongest possible images.
  • Time constraints often exclude the opportunity of photographing at the best time of year. When this occurs, I determine how best to undertake the photography within the available timescale.
  • Study the weather forecast and sunrise/sunset times to put myself in a position to produce the best imagery possible within your project constraints.
  • Consider how you wish to use your images so you get what you want and need.
  • Have contingency plans in case unexpected inclement weather prevents a piece of architecture from being shown in it’s best light on a given day.
  • Advise the best way to execute your project, whether a single piece of architecture or an entire portfolio. Single visit or multiple visits to capture your architecture throughout the seasons.
  • Provide a usage licence for the images that fulfils your needs.
  • Operate in professional and safe manner, provide safety risk assessments and adequate public liability insurance.

If the project is a new building, I may request a site plan with a north arrow showing the main architectural features as this information may not be available on maps or satellite images.

Construction Photography

I have a white (academically qualified persons) CSCS card. This is a health, safety and environmental qualification for professionals operating on construction sites.

 Products and Licensing

I take a no-nonsense approach to licensing, I listen to your requirements and provide the licence that fulfils them. I’ve seen competitors offer a variety of licences and complicated pricing based use of the images not the effort creating them. I quote a fixed price for doing the job that doesn’t change unless you request additional work.

There may be multiple parties needing similar images of a project, in these cases I can offer multiple image usage licences if all parties agree to non-exclusive use of the images. This has the benefit of making my photography more affordable for all parties that need it.

In addition to licences permitting use of my images on your websites and other materials you chose to have printed, I offer a selection of products including:

  • Framed prints and canvas wall art.
  • Electronic brochures where you can provide the text, these can also be in printable quality.
  • Albums and coffee table books which are a great marketing tool to have in your lobby.
  • My suppliers are continually adding products to their ranges such as smart phone and tablet skins. Feel free to enquire if there’s anything you’d specifically like that’s not in this list.

You may require a very specific format for your images. Web designers often have specific requirements on aspect ratio and pixel size. Images can also look very different printed large or postage stamp size. Because of this I will ask how you wish to present your images. Architectural awards all have their own submission requirements, when I know the submission, I’ll check the requirements and ensure compliance.
