What is architectural photography?

There are a variety of reasons to photograph man-made spaces, whether interior or exterior. Each reason has similarities in how we shoot, based on the ultimate goal of the photograph.

For craftspeople, whether they be architects, builders, or designers, photographs are how you share your work, and how you'll be judged by potential new clients. If those photos aren't as good as they can be, and accurately reflect the vision you had for the space, not to mention the showcase of your skill, you may lose business.

Your web site is where potential visitors/clients look to check you out, so show them your best side. It could be the pool you designed, the master suite you built, the company conference room, or the main bar. The more you show, the more comfortable and invited your visitors will feel. But only if you show off your best with the best photo. The right light, the right angle, the right view, otherwise you send them away!

For businesses, it may be the interior of your building, the exterior, or the back entrance, but the goal is to invite potential visitors to experience your business before they arrive. Liking the look of your space, or just knowing what to expect can have a big influence on whether they come for a visit.

We can shoot multiple angles or even 360 degree panoramas.

How It Works

Contact us as early as possible when considering having your project photographed. We will need to chat about the specifics of the project to plan the logistics and give you a quote. If at all possible, we will do a walk through prior to shoot day. We work as your partner to determine what shots need to be made to communicate your vision. Once a shot list is generated, we schedule shooting times for best possible light, gather necessary equipment, and work logistics for an efficient process.

Cost Sharing For Architectural Photography 

Cost sharing is a common practice for architectural photography, since the images can be of value to many parties. Architects, builders, interior designers, materials and furniture vendors are just some of the potential interested parties. For each additional party added to the project prior to the shoot, we add 30% to the total cost. Each party then splits the total evenly. If, for example, a session totals $2500 for a single party, and an additional party is added, the total cost rises 30% to $3250, and each party pays $1625, for a savings of $875!
