Architectural photography has kept me busy lately. I particularly enjoy working with a mixture of artificial and natural light to emphasize structure and form. There are many similarities with landscape photography with regards to planning and timing. To help produce the best work it pays to be flexible with regards to when the shots are taken.

Here is a virtual tour of the Christchurch Airport airbridge murals I have photographed over the last few years. This version has a full screen option, whereas the one on the Christchurch Airport site doesn’t.

I enlisted the help of Fraser Gunn, a…Read More

Putting them together was the most challenging airbridge to date. Each row had to be photographed separately by moving the camera along one row at a time. In addition, each row required six exposures to provide…Read More
