Australian Photography Magazine October 2015 Edition article about Architectural Photography

Australian Photography and Digital Magazine…

Earlier this year I was contacted by Australian Photography Magazine as they were planning on running an article on architectural photography, and were looking to interview me and feature my work alongside a couple of other photographers in this field. Naturally I was incredibly humbled and of course flattered to be asked to participate, especially considering the undeniable excellence of the other photographers who were to feature. Although I have been a photographer pretty much all my working life, I have never won any awards as such, for the very simple reason that I have never entered any competitions. Sometimes when comparing myself to other practitioners in my field, I feel somewhat as if I may be ‘found out’ for my lack of recognition, particularly as I am entirely self taught.

All the same, I am a photographer first and foremost because I love the entire creative process so passionately, and for me the reward is as much in the final image as in the new and returning clients! Still, it was indeed gratifying to be asked to put forward some images and ideas about my workflow for this publication. All the images below are heavily compressed from the original article, which I ‘screen snapped’ from a PDF.

This image is of AAMI stadium in Melbourne, which I captured approximately one year ago. Unfortunately the article went to publication before I was able to substitute this shot with the updated version that currently opens the Architecture gallery on my website.

My image is of the mobile kitchens on the bottom right – this was a linear panoramic stitch, whereby the camera position is moved for each exposure due to the subject matter and space limitations. Fun to do but it always results in a great deal more work in the computer…

My thanks go out to Australian Photography for the feature – much appreciated!
