Photographing for architects and builders is very enjoyable for me. In most cases, these jobs take a half day or a full day of photography. Unlike with real estate photography, this is a little slower and more thought out. The angles are always very important but the lighting set up is different. For real estate you have only an hour to shoot all rooms, but with architects, it might take an hour to do a single room. Why? It is because the lighting is now more unique lighting setups and in many cases… light painting.
In both cases I will try to do my best to get the “feel” for the environment by choosing light and angles that will make the space look flattering. Windows with a view, close ups of a wooden floor. These are special things to capture because someone ( the architect ) went through a lot of trouble to showcase a specific thought, or design.
I have been fortunate to work with many builders and architects and they all want to showcase their work. To do a right, you have to hire a photographer that will capture and show their visions. This is why I enjoy photographing for these professionals. I have photographed many properties for Michael Greenberg and it is total satisfaction to present photography that shows his vision.
