Architectural Photography 

Architectural Photography 

Architectural Photography (aka. the photography of buildings), is a deceptively simple branch of commercial photography, and hence it's an area where companies often try to cut corners by doing it themselves. Engaging composition, complementary lighting and careful post-processing are all essential components of high-impact Architectural Photography — remove any one of them and the resulting images will be dull and uninteresting. 
 
With over a decade of experience in photographing a wide range of architecture from listed 300 year old cottages to striking modern flats, schools to commercial office buildings, industrial units to warehouses, we have the knowledge and expertise to make your property look its absolute best.

Is your marketing literature in need of a face-lift? Do you want your marketing literature to stand out over that of your competition? 
Perhaps you usually photograph your projects yourself, but you're not a photographer and the results aren't transmitting the right message to your clients? 
Maybe you are trying to advertise your properties or projects in a crowded market place and you simply need your images to shine? 
Or you are just too busy to think about photography and just want to leave it in the hands of an expert? 
It is often thought that if you spend enough on a camera you will be able to take amazing photographs. However, this is never the case. Photography is not just about the technology, it is how it is used. A really expensive camera will produce dull and uninteresting photos just as well as a cheap smartphone! 
 
Similarly, many businesses seem to think that hastily taken smartphone photographs will do when representing projects they've completed on their website. But do these poor results (a sign of cut corners and a lack of appreciation for fine details) really transmit the right message to their prospective clients? 
 
Take a look at some of our sample Architectural Photography imagery below to get a feel of the variety of projects we get asked to photograph, and the quality of the work we produce.

Choosing the right time of day, balancing natural and artificial light, using interesting and intriguing compositions to draw the viewer's eye to the main subject of the photographs, ensuring distracting elements are removed from the scene before (and even after) the photographs are taken are just some of the benefits Horizon Imaging will bring to your architectural photographs. 
 
And here are some other benefits! 
Using natural light for the majority of our shoots, your photographs will have a natural and bright feel to them – no horrible shadows from camera flashes or rooms that get darker the further you get from the camera. 
High Dynamic Range image processing software combines multiple exposures to ensure the photographs retain detail in the very bright and very dark areas, replicating the way our eyes would perceive the scene. 
High-resolution Digital SLR cameras ensure your photographs have exceptional clarity and sharpness and are suitable for any application – be it a website or large advertising billboards. 
All Horizon Imaging's operations (both ground-based and aerial) are fully covered by £5M of Public Liability Insurance.

"Working with David was a pleasure at each and every stage. He took and understood the brief, prepared a clear quotation describing exactly his service. He liaised with our client to arrange the photo shoot. His demeanour and professionalism portrayed the same values and attention to detail that echoed our own. The images were turned around efficiently and conveyed through an excellent web based selection tool. Once reviewed the preferred images were professionally modified to produce the most refined product. These were then made available via the web portal for high resolution download. An excellent, swift easy to use service from start to finish. We will definitely be using Horizon Imaging again."

"We have used Horizon Imaging several times this year to photograph a number of our latest new-build developments. David’s ability to photograph in confined spaces and at elevated levels has produced some truly fantastic shots. We can highly recommend Horizon Imaging and look forward to working with them again in the future."

"After over a year of working with David, we and our clients continue to be blown away by his aerial and architectural photographs – they really help our property adverts stand out on our website and in our brochures." 
"We asked David to take some photos of a South Downs Estate that we manage - a vast area of almost 3000 acres. We had to hand over artistic direction entirely to David to capture the best aspects as we didn't know how it would all look from a birds eye view. He spent the day there and the resulting shots are brilliant and a very unique viewpoint on the land we know so well. David also carried out internal shots of the Farmhouse for re-letting and these are equally good. We have all been seriously impressed by his skill and attention to detail, with very little help from us non artistic types! Would certainly recommend."

Whilst a seemingly simple style of photography, architectural photography requires a great deal of patience from the photographer and a critical eye for detail. Subtle changes in lighting and the position of furniture help to optimise the scene and ensure aesthetically pleasing results – unfortunately there are no shortcuts!
