John has been shooting the majority of Australia’s significant buildings since starting his career in the 1960’s, and it’s a great privilege to have John on the podcast to share his unique perspective on the history of architectural photography, and where the profession finds itself today.
In this episode, John and I spoke about:
- How architectural photography has changed over the span of John’s career, in terms of how it’s commissioned, produced and distributed.
- How John uses the lessons of his early work in advertising photography to sell buildings in a way that architects can’t.
- John’s critique of the current trends in architectural photography, and concerns about the popular obsession with pretty pictures that don’t fully describe the building and the architect’s ideas.
- John’s predictions for the future of the architectural media.
- Why architects should remember to take a longer term or historical view of their architectural photography, and approach it in a way that will stand the test of time.
