Clayton & Co (Interior Designers)

This photoshoot was not strictly Interior Designer Photography, it was more a photoshoot geared to creating real estate photography marketing collateral. However as the designers of these spaces, Clayton & Co deserve a special mention for making the show home photography a real treat to capture. Photographing for interior designers who know how to tie a room together in a simple and elegant way can really improve the perceived quality of the photographs.

London Interior Photographer

Photographing for contractors rather than owners can create a few handling issues. Timing wise it's important to photograph the building as close to completion as possible, but before contractors vacate the property. Often this creates a timing issue where snags are being worked on, stress levels are high as deadlines loom and having a photographer on site can be an unnecessary spanner in the works. Being a local London architectural photographer offers flexibility and means a second site visit is always an option if the building isn't ready to be photographed. For Furness House in Redhill, the show home apartments were available for photographing. The exteriors still had scaffolding works around the parameter, which lead to a second photography session on the South London conversion.

 The interior photographs of the London show home above were composed in a real estate-esk fashion. Use of wider angles help show off the layouts of rooms, and how the apartment functions as a whole. Traditionally not the prettiest or most creative way to capture a space, but perfect for the clients uses. And perfect for a compact space like a one bedroom apartment. That being said, photographing the interior designers work in a pleasing way still helps to sell the lifestyle a potential home owner could enjoy.

Why Photograph the Details?

Often an added bonus of photographing a well designed show room are the details and vintages that get created by the interior designers who styled the apartment. In this case, Clayton & Co did a fantastic job in the London show homes in Furness House. Styling photographs like these were not on the brief, but can add flavour and richness to social media posts or alongside copy on a website. I always try to deliver them, when time allows. They're also generic enough to be used on posts that aren't directly related to Furness House.

Show Home Photographer - Apartment Two

Being a London interior photographer often means multiple site visits in a single day. Capturing two apartments in the same building gives a real sense of the space the construction company and architects worked and designed around. Comparing apartments side by side, you can see the intent from the interior designers, creating spaces and themes within each area to help one space flow into the next.

London Drone Photography

Drone photography is an art and discipline I'm at the cusp of understanding. New vantages points, layers of composition and graphical elements all make for an exciting way to photograph a London construction project. Becoming a London drone operator will certainly be added to the services I can offer out to clients going forward
