Architectural photography project in Dubai, UAE. This recently finished private villa in Dubai features a stunning spiral staircase accented by a fully circular fixture. The interior stands in contrast to the bright, sleek exterior. Filled with dark marble walls, ample velvet seating, and curved lighting. The goal of the photography is to show how the lighting design plays a key role in the interior design. The exterior features a lap pool, as well as a variety of smart shade and airflow solutions that make the desert heat more tolerable.
Architectural photography background:
Architecture and good design has always been interesting to me. In fact, I considered pursuing a career in architecture and interior design. People often ask how this work fits in with the rest of my repertoire. The connection is in my love of light, texture and composition. Additionally, I’m drawn to the detail and technical aspects of architectural photography. My introduction to architectural photography was by my mother. She worked in marketing for architectural lighting. Often photographers didn’t understand the subtle details important to photographing architectural lighting. So, seeing a problem that I had a solution for I jumped in. Generally the architectural industry is mostly men. But this is changing over time. And I’m excited to be working during this time of evolution.
