Course Description

Architectural photography is becoming more and more important for the communication of buildings, interiors, public spaces and the built environment in general. Today, most of the time we know architecture and cities more through their photographs rather than the direct experience. For architects and designers, photography has become an extremely important medium to communicate their projects.

This course is a comprehensive introduction to architectural photography by the professional architectural photographer Francesco Russo. The objective is to provide you with the tools to create effective images of architectural subjects through discussion and practical exercises.

Throughout the course there will be practical assignments to carry out during the classes and at home. There will be one fully practical shooting session, which will be on a mutually agreed weekend day instead of Thursday.
