As a photographer I wear many different hats: wedding photographer, portrait photographer, family photographer and corporate photographer. Corporate photography (in particular property photographer) is probably the least hectic. I have to be very precise and pay attention to the finest detail when taking photographs for corporate clients. I need to complete the brief on time and budget.
I frequently work for the interior designers Space Work Place in London. They plan and build high-end offices for national and international organisations. Most of these offices are in the centre of London.
I always use special lenses for these jobs. Extreme wide-angle lenses allow me to capture the whole size of each room wall-to-wall. In order to eliminate any digital noise I use extreme low ISO settings in my camera. I always photograph using a tripod.
Wedding or family photography is all about the moment and the emotion. As a corporate property photographer I have to create impact. During each corporate job my goal is to create crystal clear high-end photos. I want to create photos that leave a lasting impression at my clients and my clients’ clients.
In portrait photography I always try to create a blurry soft background so my object stands out. In product and design photography I try to have everything in the picture as sharp as possible.
Typical commercial photography and family photography jobs take about the same amount of time. A portrait photography session typically takes about 1-2h, which is about the same time I need to photograph a medium size office.
The photos on the right were taken during my last commercial propert photography job at the head quarter of an international investment bank in central London. It’s an impressive office floated with light. Space Work Place did an amazing job transforming the office space from its previous state to a top of the range work place in the heart of London.
As a property photographer I was particularly proud when my photos were chosen for the latest edition of Mix Interior Magazine.
