Architectural Photography Series #6 – Jim Stephenson
Similar to last weeks Photographer, this week we are delighted to present the work of someone who has worked within the field of architecture from in front of the camera, prior to becoming a full time architectural Photographer.
Brighton and London based architecture and interiors photographer Jim Stephenson trained as an architectural technologist before making the step over to architectural photographer a few years ago after fulfilling the role of staff photographer at the practices he had worked for, both in the UK and US. He believes this experience, working within in the industry, gives him an understanding of buildings, the architect’s intent and how to best purvey this in a photograph. Jim works largely in the UK, but has also completed commissions in Europe and the US. His work has been published in the Times, Guardian, Observer and Independent as well as a number of trade magazines such as the AJ, BD, Sleeper Magazine, House Magazine and Building Magazine.
“I have a particular interest in 60′s and 70′s housing in the UK, and am currently completing a private project, in collaboration with Conran & Partners, photographing a Span Developments project in Hove, East Sussex. I’ll also be photographing some of Tayler & Green’s influential housing work of the 1960′s in Norfolk over the summer as part of the Festival of Architecture for Norwich and Norfolk. I work a great deal with Conran, and my other clients include LCE, Park Grove Design, RIBA, Meloy Architects, Deveraux, Reardon Smith Architects, Morgan Carn Partnership, Household Design, and many more”.
Special thanks to Jim for sharing his work with us. As with all out featured photographers, we hope you learn something valuable from his work about composition of work. The photographer has a wonderful view of the built environment: through a lens, and we think this is a great way to experience architecture!
