These days the fast majority of what we do is architectural and interior photography in Edinburgh, Stirling, Glasgow and rest of the central belt in Scotland. With architecture and interior photography the challenge is always to draw a fine line between photographing an interior or a building as experienced by the user's perspective of a space and the designer’s or architect’s perspective. Add to that the photographer's need to compose a graphically interesting and appealing 2 dimensional image and it becomes clear that interior and architectural photography is a very specialised niche, but certainly one that we enjoy!
“Architectural photography is the task is to capture the intention behind someone else's design — to distill the philosophy of a building into a single, digestible image that transcends explanation. It's not easy, but when it's done well it looks effortless. So much so that you're left admiring the building alone, and likely never think twice about the person who helped you see it. “ by CLAIRE O'NEILL , NPR in the article: The Photographer Who Made Architects Famous.
Interior Photography Glasgow Edinburgh
With interior photography we try to show the function, layout and design of a space from different angles and perspectives. This can be at eye height (with all its varieties) or way beyond that. Also very low camera standpoints are used when for instance attention needs to be drawn to the ceiling. In theory the same space can be photographed in different ways, if the client is the ceiling manufacturer, flooring or furniture manufacturer or the interior designer. In all situations we maintain vertical lines and try to maintain horizontals. These days we rarely add light to a space like we used to do when working on film, as the dynamic range of today's digital sensors is impressive and we blend multiple exposures in post processing.
We do interior Photography in Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as in The Netherlands for a variety of clients, but we mostly photograph commercial interiors.
