Approach

Architecture is essentially problem solving. Each design outcome - whether interior, landscape or architectural is the response to a specific set of problems. Very rarely are different designs resolved with the same solution. The photography of your architecture should be as unique to your specific project as your design solution was to your brief – it should neither be a carbon copy of your competitors’ images, nor just a perfectly staged social media hit (although the latter has it’s place) - rather it should respond to your work, to the scale of your practice, the market you operate in and your stylistic bias. It should illustrate your design intelligence and give you the collateral to get you more work.
