Photography Services

Photography for your business needs – the built environment

A wide range of external and internal architectural photography services in the UK.

Use our high resolution images to promote your practice, support the planning process and document all stages of your project – from site investigation, visual impact assessment and through the entire construction process to the form and function of the finished building (including the building in use, lighting surveys and installations).

Our aim is to provide you with photographs you can use to promote your services.

Images can be supplied in a variety of geometric projections and if necessary we can help with image correction and processing advice.

Heritage Architecture

heritage locations and survey photographySpecialist heritage and conservation photography for architects, reconstruction and renovation companies and organisations that captures images for conservation and restoration projects where precise details require a permanent record.

We combine technical image capture with creative expertise to produce photographs that can be used in technical and funding reports, as reference images for plans and drawings or reproduced for your portfolio, as promotional material or decorative fine art prints.

By using advanced technologies, specialist lenses, camera equipment and software we’re able to offer a wider range of imaging options than traditional techniques and our combination of creative photography and highly specialised technical skills enable us to produce images that leave even other photographers wondering just how we do it.

Post production work – to improve usability and add visual impact – is available on all our images. Rectified, high resolution files can be produced for import into CAD packages for stone identification. Specialist Photoshop image processing, such as localised contrast enhancement can be used to, for example, highlight cracks in stonework or show up defects in buildings.

There are some examples of rectified images in our blog, along with some aspects worth considering when planning for such work. We can elevate any of our equipment to ~8 metres if required for a view.

High resolution photography

High resolution, gigapixel, panoramic and spherical photography using digital image capture techniques that far exceed the capabilities of traditional film based large format photography.

Our extremely detailed, high resolution images can be used for web and print media (including billboards and building wraps) and are perfect for panoramic and computer simulation backgrounds, visual impact assessment (VIA) and very large fine art prints. Our

largest print to date is 14 metres long and some of our high resolution panoramic Gigapixel (Gigapan) images have exceeded twenty gigabytes per file.

Our principal photographer Keith Cooper is a widely acknowledged expert in the camera technologies and specialised software needed to create such high resolution images and is always happy to offer help with colour management, image correction and printing of his photographs.

There are some examples that you can pan and zoom on the High resolution photography page.
