Such a pleasure to shoot another project by the artist Richard Wilson, this time down in Bexhill with the structural engineer who made it all work. The reaction to the piece by young and old was wonderful. Everyone was so excited about it and seemed to want to engage and talk about it.
Sometimes it’s best to just dive into an edit and do your favourite shots first. More on this shoot soon hopefully.
Today I’m thrilled to announce that I am now part of VIEW pictures. One of the reasons this is so exciting is that the VIEW website formed a very important part of my research as to what constituted good Architectural Photography a few years back.
VIEW was established 14 years ago and now represents over 200 of the world’s most highly respected and talented photographers of architecture and interior design. Architects, engineers, designers and the international architectural press regularly commission our photographers. We have photographed the work of the world’s leading architects including Renzo Piano, Jean Nouvel, Frank Gehry, Herzog & de Meuron, Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster and Richard Rogers for example. Photographs of the most significant new buildings from all over the world are continually added to our collection. Classic modern buildings, historic structures all kinds of residential dwellings are also covered.
I’m very pleased to be able to show a few images from a recent shoot for Tigg Coll Architects in Kensington. A rather nice refurbishment with some excellent details in which we had quite a bit of fun capturing. Great to work with a new client on this project.
A few select images from the shoot below.
Very pleased to have been involved in a shoot a few weeks ago to record the new LED lighting for Tower Bridge with Reformer Films. GE, in partnership with EDF and City of London, have provided a new LED lighting system on Tower Bridge to cut the landmark’s energy consumption by 40%.
Shooting with three other photographers as well as a team of video operators we captured a series of lighting tests that were carried out in the early hours of the morning. A helicopter was also commissioned to fly over and record the process for an hour or so with stills and video. I was lucky enough to have a position on the 8th floor of an adjacent hotel where I was able to capture the following shot.
It’s seen publication in the Evening Standard last week and forms part of the overall press pack which has a series of stunning images from all involved.
Some of the aerial footage along with the rest of the video shot can be seen in the clip below.
A few recent images taken on a wonderful spring day recently for Moxon Architects. The project is an interesting new addition to an existing property in the De Beauvoir Conservation Area. The series of forms and spaces created through a relatively small area have worked really well and the ability to completely open up the kitchen on two sides is incredibly successful. Unfortunately no puppy to play with this time but a very interesting client to chat to instead whilst waiting for dusk.
Next up in the series is a friend and former colleague, Richard Keep, who has recently set up his own firm. Such a nice space to work in with plenty of natural light. Would be great work in somewhere with so much layout space.
Another recent series of images commissioned by Design ACB for some improvement works they recently carried out at a local Technology College in Basingstoke. The workshops were of special interest to me. Some great spaces in there.
A bit of a change from the norm this time – people not buildings. A few shots from a recent shoot for GX Gallery / La Scatola in Camberwell. Nice to be a bit closer to home and catch up with a few friends at the same time. Also great to be shooting without a tripod. Click, click, click.
Although I’ve somewhat neglected to update this blog recently, I’ve finally got a few moments to show one of the recent projects I shot, this time for Moxon Architects. A small but perfectly formed project altering the rear of an existing property in South West London. Fantastic to meet the very happy client and also spend a whole day playing with Bella the one year old puppy who seemed to enjoy just running around the tripod.
