Architectural Photography: Interiors

Architectural photography, whether interior or exterior, relies heavily on
a photographer’s technical abilities — but it doesn’t stop there! An
artful eye helps create the best composition and capture the moment and
emotion of a space.

The challenge of bringing all these elements together is what makes this
kind of photography so rewarding.

Understanding how these images will be used is of the utmost importance.
From the high-resolution of a magazine cover to the squareness of
Instagram, the final product will play a part in decisions around
composition and design.

My personal preference when shooting interiors is starting with natural
light, although the “right light” is often achieved by adding light to a
room. Controlling the light can also help improve the mood, feel, and
contrast of an image, and even bring out colour and detail to select areas.

Moncton’s Natural Playground – A one day community build

Volunteers from Tangerine, Bienenstock, YMCA and the City of Moncton gather at Centennial Park to build a natural playground, the first of its kind for Moncton. This will be a great place for kids to play especially with a 22 foot long teeter totter (Wobbly Log) made out of huge tree trunks!  It’s always  heartwarming to document such great community events.

Yvon Lapierre Dieppe

Portrait of a Mayor

This recent photo series of Mayor Yvon Lapierre of the City of Dieppe was originally for use in a thank you ad campaign. Atlantic Cancer Research Institute is selecting from these images.

On arrival at the Mayor’s office, I was quickly reminded of the great light and architectural features of it’s modern Dieppe city hall. The lobby area is such a great people gathering space, great for events and mingling. His own office photos went very well so time was on my side to capture a few images using the remarkable main lobby area.

Moncton 125

Moncton Celebrates its 125th Birthday!

There was lots to photograph for the City of Moncton in the past few days as it kicked off its 125th Birthday celebrations throughout the city. The lack of a downtown centre did not seem to be an issue the past few days as proud Monctonians, and new to Moncton residents embraced every event. Simple Plan played to a big crowd down on the waterfront then got to see the first fireworks of the year. The long tough winter we are leaving behind may have played a part, but either way, people seemed happy and energized.

Resurgo place was hopping, where many took advantage of seeing its impressive showcase of history and interactive modules where power and transportation energized young and old. Lucky for me, Resurgo Place is across the street from my studio. Other event locations included the Capitol Theatre, Moncton Market, Frye Festival/ Blue Cross Centre and the Magnetic Hill Zoo.

I will let the photos speak for themselves. Happy Birthday Moncton!
