Architectural Photography

Adam Coupe has worked as an architectural photographer for over 10 years throughout the UK and Europe. What makes us different is our experience. We have a reputation for completing architectural photography shoots efficiently and with the minimum amount of disruption – and without the need for a survey visit prior to the shoot.

Before starting any architectural photography project we ensure we fully understand the key design elements of your scheme. We are comfortable adapting to your preferences, or if you prefer we can also be relied upon to interpret and capture your project with an independent and fresh eye.

We work both with clients who prefer on-shoot art direction, where results are seen ‘real time’ and optimised, and clients who prefer us to complete the photography independently. As experienced architectural photographers, we find both approaches work equally well.

It is important to us that we try to help you find examples of our work that are close to what you require. You may find our Interior, residential, commercial and installation photography portfolios interesting. A couple of our customers have been kind enough to provide testimonials. They describe how we obsess about creating images that work perfectly for their campaigns or projects. Our blog posts, that explain our commissions in greater detail may be of interest. We enthuse about the amazing structures, interiors and construction installations that we become involved in capturing.  High profile examples are the National Graphene Institute, Royal Ascot Racecourse, Nottingham Trent University Pavilion. Also the Sandwell College, West Bromwich, Putney High School Performing Arts Centre, MAKO Derivatives, Broadgate, London or the stunning Ben Pimlott Building, Goldsmiths College, London.
