révélateur is proud to announce its first magazine cover! Our shoot of the Yorkville residence by Audax Architecture was featured in the the Spring 2015 issue of Designlines magazine.

Spring 2015 cover

Interestingly, this is our first ever commissioned project and turned out to be a client favourite from day one. This reno of a 70's modern house turned a very dated dwelling into a sleek, contemporary, state of the art dwelling that reflects the personality of its owner, a 30-something successful entrepreneur from Toronto.

Tips for hiring an architectural photographer #4

This is post 4 of a series of 10, in a series detailing important aspects to hiring an architectural photographer while avoiding the most common pitfalls.

COLLABORATE

Photographing buildings and interiors is not an exact science and it requires collaboration between the photographer and client, in order to achieve the client’s vision. Photographers have a particular way to look at spaces, usually different from the clients'. It is a good idea to use this difference in viewpoints as a sounding board for coming up with ideas that neither you, the client, nor the photographer might have thought of on their own. The pre-production meeting and the scouting shoot are great places to brainstorm and kick-start this process. If you are going to be present on the day of the shoot, use this to you advantage by discussing each view with your photographer and formulating your specific needs in the clearest way possible. Your photographer should be able to show you each shot prior to capturing the image to serve as the basis for discussion.

Yorkville residential project (upcoming shoot)

We are happy to announce that we have picked up a few clients since our launch back in February, our first contract being the photography of a high-end private residence in Yorkville, commissioned by Audax Architecture. The following images are from the scouting shoot. Stay tuned for the final images to come in the next couple of months.

Kitchen / Dining area

This residence is a renovation of a 70's era detached house. Audax redesigned all the interiors as well as renovated the exterior. The result is a house that feels decidedly contemporary and one would be hard-pressed to find evidence of the 70's original design left to see.

We are extremely excited to shoot this project and cannot wait to share the finished photography with you.
