Most people first encounter architecture through photographs. The creation of those photos carries with it certain responsibilities, such as serving as the link between society and the architectural profession and capturing architectural moments in a historical context. As such, the relationship between the architect and photographer is critical in identifying the best photographic style to capture your project as it sets the tone for how you and your work are remembered. While slick magazine photos may look great to other architects, they may not be what your next client is looking for.

Learn how lighting, lens selection, time of day, and time of year have dramatic effects on the end results, as well as how to plan for your photographs during the design phase. Hardware, software and other tools common to the modern digital darkroom will be discussed including exposure blending, image stacking and High Dynamic Range (HDR). We will dig a little deeper into the fine print of photography contracts to learn about Copyrights and Usage Rights and other terms you may find in a photographer's contract.
