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.

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.

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.
