Personal work by Jonathan Walland

Light & Form

Like most photographers, I don't exclusively photograph commercial style architecture and people's interiors. I too, have other interests within photography, including fine art architecture, and just general pictorial shots while I am out. I recently shot a series of photographs that I titled, 'Light & Form' which you can see on my website at the moment. The idea was to demonstrate how by restricting light in an image, you can divert the attention of the viewer away from distractions and towards the form found within architecture. My intention with these images was to minimise distractions by burning them away, in order to push attention towards the areas I wished to highlight. All of the buildings photographed were located within London.

LRPS

I am also working towards gaining an LRPS from the Royal Photographic Society, which you will probably be hearing more of as my panel develops. An LRPS (Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society) is the first of three distinctions (LRPS ARPS & FRPS) that are awarded to photographers who can submit 10 prints to be reviewed by judges. Both the subject matter of each photograph and the layout of the prints is important. I will also be becoming a member very soon.

General photography

Here is a selection of some other photographic work I have taken for my own personal use. As you can see, I am quite fond of black and white.

What To Expect When Having an Interior Project Photographed by Jonathan Walland

This is a schedule of work that I am often asked for, which outlines what a typical day involves when you hire me to photograph an interior project. I trust you find this useful, and can contact me to further discuss your requirements.

Schedule of work for interior photography

I will begin by observing the room, looking for the best angles and perspectives from which I will later use to provide the most impactful shots. Depending on the scale of the room, I tend to find two or three views of the room for which I will use my wide-angle lens to capture. You will be able to see the fundamental structure of the space with these photographs. 

Converging verticals, distortion, and any imperfections like plug sockets will be removed or corrected. The white balance will be adjusted to provide the atmosphere with a clean and pure aesthetic. The use of lighting will be avoided if possible, but in cases where light is of rarity, a single off camera flash will be used to compensate for the lack of light. Natural light is always preferable. 

Macro

I will then change over to an alternate lens with a higher focal length to capture the more subtle details. These photographs will usually be shot with a shallow depth of field, isolating the subject entirely. Again, any imperfections will be corrected.

You will receive a series of professional, high quality images that not only showcase the intricacy of the design, and the skill of the designer, but also tell a story. The process can take up to three hours depending on the scale of the task. The images will be edited the following day, and sent via Google Drive in the highest quality resolution, and in the format you require. You will have a licence to the selected photographs for two years, or longer if necessary.
