1. Aerial Photos

Use aerial photography for architectural projects that need to be seen from directly overhead.  Try using an airplane or helicopter if you need images from above 500 feet.

2. Drone Photos

Drones are great tools to use when photographing an architectural project. Drones (or UAVs as they are also referred to) can photograph and video structures that are impossible to reach by any other means.  Since these devices can fly just above ground level, they are perfect for use in a courtyard, near an entryway, and just above the roof of a building.  Moreover, since drones are a fairly new technology, many firms (your competitors) are not using them and thus you can make your portfolio of work stand out from that of other architects.

3. Exterior Architectural Photos

Photographing exteriors and interiors require two entirely different skills.  Exterior lighting relies heavily on natural light since there are two times of day to photograph the exterior architecture of a house – mornings and evenings.  There are three reasons for photographing during these times.  1. The sun is lower on the horizon and it provides surfaces with a pleasing warm amber or reddish glow.  2. Shadows are longer and their transition is less abrupt than at midday.  3.  It seems like there will be fewer interruptions from people and cars during these times.

4. Interior Architectural Photos

Interior architectural photography can be quite challenging to shoot.  The architectural photographer needs a thorough understanding of lighting (quality of light, light modifiers, color temperatures, gels, etc), composition and staging.  Moreover, they need to be able to articulate the architect’s vision and tell a complete story in just a few images.  The devil is in properly staging the various rooms and thus the image can speak volumes once the photographer determines the best way to stage the room and light it.
