Heritage Architecture

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

We combine technical image capture with creative expertise. 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. 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. Our cutting edge digital image capture techniques far exceed the capabilities of traditional film based large format photography.

If you still feel the need for large format film – give us a call and see why we think otherwise. Why not let us show you?

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. 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.

Use an expert photographer

When you want a professional photographer for new homes, buildings, architectural or interior photography, give us a call…

As specialist commercial photographers, we work closely with architects, project managers, contractors and agencies to ensure our images are always supplied to meet your needs, whether for web or print use.

Technical choices set the mood for the entire image – remember that your photos have a job to do, and emotional impact can be an important part of that.

“Not all your photos need to be a precise record of a built structure
– your practice sells far more than that”

Technical expertise does make a difference

The latest technology – specialist lenses, camera equipment and software allow us to produce a much larger variety of creative options and views.

Our combination of creative photographic ability and technical skills produce images that leave other general purpose photographers wondering just how we made them.

Our principal photographer, Keith Cooper, regularly tests new professional photographic and print equipment from major manufacturers before it is available to purchase. He’s written many detailed articles and reviews related to photography.

Commissioning architectural photography

The conditions at the site and the sorts of photography you need can make a big difference to the kinds of photos we can create.

To help us give the best service, we’ve put together a short guide covering information that we need to know and some tips addressing some of the issues you might want to consider: Advice for commissioning architectural photography

Good photos work for your business

“Remember, poor images harm first impressions and turn potential clients away…
… this will cost you real money”

Great photos make a difference

“Good relevant photos can help move the would-be client into thinking about
-how- they will work with you, not -if- they could work with you”
