CBI recently completed this interior redesign for Perkopolis. They called on our company to make the place really shine through photography.

Often interior design firms commission photographs of complete spaces to show to potential clients. This is an essential step in winning new contract and bids. Below is a small sample of the images produced.

The Perkopolis Office Space

Above is a recent architectural shoot in Toronto. It was a cool new space and it was a lot of fun to carry out the shoot.

Chameleon Business Interiors is a global interior design firm founded in the United Kingdom. They focus on creating well designed, and stimulating workplaces contributing to the well being of staff and employees.

We had the pleasure of dealing with both their UK and Toronto offices for coordination of this architectural photo shoot.

Notes About Interior Photography of Office Buildings

Photography of office interiors can be a difficult proposition. Generally there are really bright windows and a dark interior. It can be challenging to match lighting conditions and create a natural look that is both honest to the architectural interiors and welcoming to the viewer.

I’ll use a little magic to make the space really pop with lighting and post processing, but you shouldn’t be able to tell either. Meaning, the architectural photography images should look natural. The camera does not always see as well as our eyes do. This is especially true inside.

As architectural photographers, we also have to worry about color casts from different color sources. Often out brains, don’t call attention to these color shifts, but in photographs they are very apparent.

For example, fluorescent lights will often give a green color cast. Incandescent will provide a warm color cast. Our strobe light will be daylight balanced – neutral. So we have to work to balance all of these different colors to give an accurate rendition of the office space.

More importantly, the architectural interiors need to pleasing to the eye and represent the interior designers vision for the space.
