About

I am an Architectural, Commercial and Industrial Photographer based in Melbourne, Australia, although after perusing this blog you could perhaps be forgiven for thinking that I mainly work as a travel photographer. In fact while I do post some occasional commercial projects here,  I do have a professional portfolio website which can be found at www.michaelevansphotographer.com

This blog is a place for me to document not only a selection of my professional projects, but also my personal photography adventures. I have never been particularly good at keeping a diary, but really enjoy the whole process of updating this blog and the warmth and friendship I have experienced from other bloggers the world over…

My journey started during the design boom of the late 80’s and early 90’s, when I had the good fortune to be working for commercial & retail design giant Fitch and Company in Soho, London’s exciting west end. The diverse range of projects that the company was appointed to meant that in any one week I could be photographing the latest construction at Heathrow T4, a new office building, a shopping centre or single retail outlet, or even a new telephone prototype…

I fondly remember the purchase of my first 4×5 in view camera during this period, whereupon I set about discovering the intricacies of photographing architecture and interiors. In the mid 1990’s I photographed for several Time Life books on the Middle East, and then following a series of hotel shoots in Switzerland and France for the English ski company Powder Byrne, I found myself bound for a new life in Australia, which I have called home for the past 19 years.

 

Fully embracing a digital workflow, my adventure as a photographer continues…

  1. I was looking for a first impression on Normandy and found lovely pictures on your blog. Thanks! I really like your style 🙂

  2. I’m so glad I’ve found your blog and photography. You are new to blogging, I’m new to photography, and like to soak up other photographer’s blogs for learning.
    You have wonderful work here.

    1. Thanks Yael, I really appreciate your kind comments! I am now following your blog too as you have some great shots! My parents lived in Marina Del Rey about 15 years ago, so I know it a little, though I bet it has changed quite considerably… All the best, Michael

  3. Your eyes are wide, wide open to stunning moments of beauty, Michael! I can see that I’m going to enjoy following this blog.
