Things You Should Consider When Hiring An Architectural Photographer

Roberta May

Working with an architectural photographer can be an excellent way to highlight properties and structures for a presentation, marketing campagins, or a social media promotion. The photographer will create images for you that show the building or structure accurately and look fantastic. Hiring the right photographer for your project is important, and there are some things you can do to determine who is right for you.

Experience In The Field

There are many different genres of photography and many types or styles of photographs within those genres. An architectural photographer specializes in creating images of buildings and structures that make them look great but are accurate so as not to mislead anyone looking at the photos. 

Shooting buildings in this way involves more than arriving at the location and snapping some photos. The time of day, the sun's position, reflections, shadows, and even people and traffic are all important, and the more experience the photographer has with these kinds of photoshoots, the better prepared they are to create images that you will be happy with. 

A photographer just getting started may be able to capture a good image, but if you want that over-the-top image that will really show off the structure, working with a photographer with a few years of experience under their belt is often the best choice. 

Check Their Portfolio

An architectural photographer should have a portfolio of images that are accessible for you to review. If they don't, they may not have a lot of experience, and it will be hard to determine the quality of the work. 

Look for a portfolio to have different styles of buildings and structures in it so you can see the style of building you have or something similar to it. You can also get an idea of the photographer's style by looking at the portfolio, especially if there are many different properties or structures that have similar lighting and angles used in the photograph. 

If you like a specific style and find a photographer that tends to shoot that way, they could be the right one to capture images of your project. Don't be afraid to point out the images you like because that can help the architectural photographer understand what you want your pictures to look like.

Photography Cost

It is important to consider the cost of the photography you need and set a budget that you can afford. An architectural photographer may charge for each image or by the job, so talk to them about how their price structure works. 

While the costs can vary from one photographer to another, it is pretty standard for photographers working in your area to charge similar rates for similar projects. If one is much lower than the others, they could be new and trying to get started. In contrast, if one photographer is exceptionally high priced, they might have years of experience in the industry, so looking for someone in the middle is often going to get you good work at a fair price.
