This is part of a fine art series that I have been working on titled ‘Modern Day Mountains and Latter Day Icebergs’. Through it I have been exploring the notion of how modern Architecture could be interpreted from a post-apocalyptic side of things. I came across some shapes and forms within a few designs that I though quite resembled man made mountains and icebergs, and framed my compositions to reveal these hidden ‘scapes.
I am going to be making some large scale metallic fine art prints of these, and they will be available for purchase
Here are a few shots from a recent aerial shoot I did for a shipping company out of Singapore. Shooting out of helicopters is always fun, and this day was no exception. It was windy and wet flying with the door off, but right as we met with the ship at sea, the sky cleared!
Interview with yours truly up on Photography and Architecture
I had the awesome pleasure of being interviewed by the amazing Julie Grahame of PhotographyAndArchitecture.com for this article on Architecture Photography Pricing.
Check out the article, as well as the rest of the blog. It’s full of great information and imagery, and is one of my favourite daily reads!
Hey friends! Christmas time is upon us, and I woke up in Vancouver to a dump of snow…..poetic. Although, driving around in snow here is far from it…we’ll be driving the 4x4 for the next few days
I am excited to be featured as Clickbooq’s featured site, so welcome to everyone who came across my work on their site!
Also, the post on Marie’s flat is going viral (well…the closest thing to viral I’ve experienced),and I am seeing it pop up all over the place! Thanks to all the people who enjoyed it enough to share it….1100 likes and reposts in the last 3 weeks! I’m really glad there are so many appreciators of architecture photography out there!
I’ll be taking some time off until the New Year, but have some exciting things coming as we move into 2014! It’s already shaping up to be a great year, with some exciting things on the horizon. My work is being featured on the cover of an upcoming Architecture book in Europe (I’ll share some pictures once it’s printed), and another great magazine will be featuring some of my work early into the year.
This unique seven story tall, round building is called the Tietgen Students Residence. It was designed by the Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects, who are famous for their sustainable architecture. This unique building won the 2006 RIBA European Award for its design, which is based off of traditional Chinese Hakka Architecture.
The inner courtyard provides an exclusive and quite park area for the buildings residence to interact, and the various gym’s and study areas on the ground floor provide a nearly self sustaining living environment for those students lucky enough to call this amazing building home.
Christmas is coming VERY soon, so enjoy the holidays with you family, and stay tuned for more work in the New Year!
Here are some more shots of the 8 house in Orestad, Denmark. This amazing building is constructed in the shape of a figure eight. One unique feature that I especially love, is that every unit is accessible by bike from the sloped pathway that loops around the figure eight. This unique design also allows everyone a view, and the center courtyards are popular hangout spots for the buildings residents.
This building was design by none other than Bjarke Ingels, and is another fine example of his ‘Architectural Alchemy’ mode of design. This unusual mix of retail, townhouses, and apartments, in addition to the community-building/social-engineering properties of the building make it a true standout design. It’s no wonder it won the 2011 World Architecture Awards.
A few months ago I blogged a post from an interior shoot I did in this building, so if you haven’t checked that out, you can view it here.
I’m really excited for some of the forth-coming work BIG is doing on this side of the world, including THIS amazing design right here in Vancouver, and I look forward to photographing more of their fine work in the future!
Here is another great Danish penthouse conversions. The former attic was removed, the beams exposed, and skylights added. I love the clean white look, contrasted with the fantastic wood block counter tops, and solid wood flooring. The ladder provides access to a partially exposed bedroom hidden in the far gable end of the vaulted ceiling.
I love it.
A great post on how Architects can have their work featured in magazines, online, etc. Professional photography is of course of detriment, and then from there, this post will help determine the next steps.
