In Pictures: York Holiday Cottage Photography

Back at the beginning of the year we had the pleasure of photographing this lovely holiday cottage, right in the city centre of York. It had been beautifully restored and updated (I’d actually photographed it when it was for sale in its dilapidated state) and transformed into a great holiday let in the perfect location for exploring York. Honestly, it is the kind of space that would make someone want their own holiday home, be it one of the houghton lake mi homes for sale or in the York area.

Styled in a laid back country style, yet impeccably

Why Use a Professional Interiors Photographer?

Why use a professional interiors photographer? It’s a good question. Why pay for a specialist professional interiors and architectural photographer when you can take pretty good images yourself or get your wedding photographer pal to take them, because they’ve got all the kit anyway. Right?

Well, I’ve pulled together a few examples from the last few weeks to show you what you’re getting from an experienced professional dedicated to their field.

I’ve tried to demonstrate just a few ways the results can differ. Some of these are taken with lesser quality kit than we use on a day to day basis and other are taken with the same kit from the same place.

This lovely kitchen makes a good demonstration of how lighting and exposure blending can help transform the space from somewhere dark and somewhat oppressive to a much brighter, more airy space. It’s much easier to imagine baking some hot-cross-buns in the after image than in the before.

What to buy an architectural photographer for Christmas

 

Right. It’s December. So Christmas is now a word that is acceptable to use. That being so, I’m getting my Christmas list written up and sent over to Father Christmas ASAP.

I am quite lucky as I have already done most of my Christmas shopping this year. I try to spread my Christmas shopping throughout the last months of the year as I find that this helps me to save money.

Plus, it also gives me plenty of time to collect coupons and promo codes. Honestly, there is no better feeling than securing yourself a discount.

Moreover, I even managed to purchase myself some new camera equipment at a bargain price thanks to a coupon code for Target that I found on the Raise website. Needless to say, if you are looking to land a bargain this year, I would strongly recommend looking around for any discount codes!

So, what do you get an architectural photographer for Christmas?
