Architecture photography Essex
Photographic architecture is an interesting sphere of my work. I usually spend a lot time of planning, lighting preparation, and the focus on the goal o
f not just having beautiful photographs but showcasing the concepts behind each project. Architecture photography projects are some of the ones that I am most excited and anxious about.
The weather conditions for exterior property shoots can sometimes be unpredictable, so packing different equipment for all kinds of scenarios is necessary. Doing research on the background of the building is also a must. In some ways it’s similar to shooting portraits. To get a good portrait it’s important to get an idea of what the person is like. Especially when it comes to shooting in Essex. There are 14,000 listed buildings and the oldest building dates to 7th century. It’s an Anglican Church of St. Peter-on-the-Wall. Gothic architecture certainly has is dominant presence in Essex and a very special history behind it. Many Gothic buildings were built without proper plans and by inexperienced people. A lot of people died during building these gorgeous decorations of Essex.
There are also modern architecture buildings that UK prides itself on. One of those modern buildings is a Royal Corinthian Yacht Club which United Kingdom entered in the “International Exhibition of Modern Architecture” at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in 1932.
I recently did architecture photography in a local Southend on sea civic centre council building for a lighting designer company called Chantelle Lighting. You can see the photos here: www.scottmillerphotography.co.uk/civiccentresouthendonsea. Very cool project to work on.
I find every building has its story, just like every person. Addition to the building such as lighting or any kind of reconstruction or renovation is almost like an important event in person’s life. Having aproperty photographer who can properly capture those events is also very significant.
