This is post 3 of a series of 10, in a series detailing important aspects to hiring an architectural photographer while avoiding the most common pitfalls.
UNDERSTAND AND FORMULATE YOUR NEEDS.
It is advisable to sit down and think about what your needs are prior to discussing them with a photographer, in order to make them clear to the professionals you will be hiring. Think about the aesthetic/mood you are trying to achieve, the number of images you need, the way you envision your project to be shot, your budget and any other specific requirements you may have. Photographers should be able to help you uncover these needs by asking a series of increasingly pointed questions and come up with a tailored estimate that will cover all those needs. Once that discovery process is complete, the photographer will know exactly what those needs are. Remember that “understandings prevent misunderstandings” and ask your photographer to clarify anything that is unclear. Do not let technical terms and jargon confuse you.
We had the pleasure to return to designholmen to complete our shoot.
In addition to the kitchen and dining room we shot the living room and the master bedroom. The understated elegance of the project, clearly influenced by designholmen's Swedish roots made the shoot a pleasure as there were many angles from which to capture the design, all of them looking really good.
We hope you enjoy these images as much as we enjoyed shooting the space.
We recently shot a small industrial building in Little Portugal. It used to be a small factory that was transformed into a live-work space by Downey Design's Kevin Downey.
The project is interesting in the way only the outer shell of the building was preserved in order to keep the original form, yet, allow for dramatic open spaces on the inside.
The building is home to Arts and Labour design studio. This live-work space is stunning through its simplicity and brightness, as there isn't a time of the days when the space is not filled with natural light.
Natural light is a key component of the design and every space ends up being very bright and pleasant to experience. Sometimes it is all that's needed to make an otherwise plain space exceptionally cheerful. Add to the mix an exceptional art and design furniture collection and you get a unique space reflecting the personality of its owner.
We would like to thank Arts and Labour for letting us shoot the space and publish it.
