Only a few people actually know that I wanted to be an architect when I was younger. At the end of high school, I got an internship in an architect’s office. As a youngster, I couldn’t wait to start to learn how to design, draw, and create amazing architectural pieces!
Of course, I got so disappointed when I realised the designing aspect is only a tiny part of being an architect. Much like taking photographs is only a very small part of being a photographer. After that, I changed my mind and decided I wouldn’t want to work as an architect anymore.
Today, I am a photographer and videographer who shoots architecture, interior design, and real estate. In a way, I suppose I got the best of both worlds!
As you will see here as well as on Instagram or Facebook, I absolutely love long exposure photography. Especially when it comes to photographing architecture. I just think it is the perfect match! To me, the soft streaks of clouds help enhance the hard lines of the buildings I am shooting. This creates a contrast and mood that I am really fond of.
For most of my architectural work, I use a unique technique called time blending. It consists in setting up the camera on a tripod and not touching it for a couple of hours, while shooting the same scene in different light conditions. This enables me to capture each and every part of the scene in the best light possible. I then blend them together in Photoshop to get one perfectly exposed photograph.
