We’re long time specialists in both Whistler and Vancouver architectural photography.
A tenet of architectural photography is the use of controlled perspective, with an emphasis on vertical lines that are non-converging (parallel). This is achieved by positioning the focal plane of the camera at so that it is perpendicular to the ground, regardless of the elevation of the camera eye.
Exterior architectural photography usually takes advantage of available daylight, or if performed at night, uses ambient light from adjacent street lights, landscape lights, exterior building lights, moonlight and even twilight present in the sky in all but the darkest situations.
Interior architectural photography can also be performed with ambient light transmitted through windows and skylights, as well as interior lighting fixtures, although we often use supplemental strobe lighting to improve the illumination within a building.
