I specialise in architectural photography with twelve years experience practicing architecture and eight years practicing architectural and fine art photography. I work on commissioned assignments from architecture firms and related industry clients nationally and internationally. With a deep respect and love for the scientific, artistic and craftsmanship aspects of architecture, I approach every project with passion and vigor. I also collaborate with architectural institutions and media outlets for the editorial promotion and dissemination of architecture to the general public.
In collaboration with professor of architecture Mark DeKay, we have developed ‘Integral Lens’, a multi-perspectival approach to architectural photography and we conduct academic courses and workshops to students from related departments.

Aligned with the educational potential and historical importance of architectural photography, the photographed projects are presented in full creating an open and accessible online archive. With over 240 projects, this section of the website consists of 8.000+ images regularly updated.
Website navigation note: Each 'country page' has a thumbnail gallery ("front page") visually cataloguing all the projects, which works as a summary of the photographed buildings. By clicking on each building thumbnail, the main page of the project opens to display the full set of images. Project pages have more than one groups of images ("project galleries") within them: exterior day, exterior sunset / dusk / night / dawn / sunrise, interior, closeups & details, different sections / functions of buildings, aerial / drone, etc. which works as another curation filter to help with the viewing process of numerous images. You can either navigate back to the country page by clicking on the 'back' button at the end of each page or by using the main drop-down menu to visit other sections. The menu bar is also placed at the bottom of the website for convenience when pages get long.
