Toronto Architecture Photographer

Toronto is a city known for its stunning architecture. From the iconic, 147-story CN Tower to the historic Old City Hall, with its Romanesque grandeur, there is no shortage of architectural beauty in this city. As a Toronto architecture photographer and resident, I am immersed in the city’s beauty on a daily basis, and have had the pleasure of photographing many of its unique, eye-catching buildings and structures.

Our images demonstrate an understanding of composition. We are skilled at using angles, lighting, and the natural environment to highlight the building’s best features. An artful composition will draw the eye in and allow viewers to see even the most common buildings in a new light.

Photographing Large Buildings

Large buildings have an imposing quality. They inspire awe in their onlookers. This is something we want to convey in the images we create. We have the skill and experience required to capture large structures in their entirety, and ensure that there is no distortion of architectural features or converging vertical lines.

Hotels and Hospitality

When photographing hotels, corporate event centres, and banquet halls, we go beyond the traditional vantage points, playing with angles, light, and composition to create enticing, visually appealing images. For example, in this photo of the Hilton Garden Centre, we used the surroundings and natural lighting to set the tone and add visual interest to the photo. The lights from the cars, conveying speed and movement, are contrasted with the building, set on a cotton candy sky backdrop, which presents the space as calm, warm and inviting.

Stand Alone Stores and Restaurants

When photographing a store or restaurant, it is important to study the structure, in order to create images that emphasize the building’s unique design characteristics. We put thought and care into the composition of our photographs. We know that with the right lighting and angles, your business will shine. For instance, McDonald’s, with its red exteriors and bright yellow arches, stands out against the dark sky in this photograph. From this angle, the building’s architectural features lead the eye in and create visual interest.

Industrial & Warehouse Photographs

Photographing industrial buildings, warehouses, and manufacturing facilities presents many unique challenges. These structures are often large and boxy, with many large windows.  We have the skills and experience to meet these challenges. We pride ourselves on creating aesthetically pleasing photographs that capture the imagination of the viewer and encourage them see beyond the bricks and mortar. This photograph of the Earth Fresh produce company’s facility demonstrates the use of leading lines, and the natural environment to add visual interest. The angle of the photograph helps to avoid flattening the building and bring out its texture. The natural beauty of the surroundings complements the architecture, with objects in the foreground, such as plants and trees, leading the eye in.

Retail Store Interiors

When we photograph retail interiors, attention to detail is paramount. There are many lighting considerations to be made when it comes to photographing store interiors. We will meet every challenge head-on and ensure that the space is properly lit to showcase your store and products.  

Applying an understanding of composition, we will create photographs that provide a glimpse inside the retail space without appearing too cluttered or busy. Photographs that make your clients want to visit instead of never visiting in the first place.

Hotel Interiors, Restaurant Interiors

When photographing hotel and restaurant interiors, we want to create images that enhance the visual interest of these spaces and highlight their unique architectural features. It is important to present hotel and restaurant interiors as warm and welcoming, and create a sense of comfort. We are knowledgeable and skilled in the use of lighting techniques to account for the presence of both natural and artificial lighting in one space. How do you want customers to see your hotel or restaurant? We will ensure that your vision is reflected in the photographs. In the example here, the approach to composition opens up the space and creates a sense of depth. Leading lines draw the eye in and upward, emphasizing the height of the ceiling, and creating a sense of splendor.

Retail Store Fronts

When it comes to photographing storefronts, we want to help you make a strong first impression by creating images that pique customers’ interest and inspire them to visit in person. It is about capturing the essence of your business. What makes your space unique? What do you want to showcase to customers? Allow us to use our skill, experience, and creative eye to produce unique, attractive images for your business.
