By profession I am an architect. By inclination I am a photographer. Please enjoy my abstract architectural images and landscapes.

Hi and thanks for visiting my RedBubble page.
Please look around. I hope you enjoy what you see.

I used to think that landscape was my thing but it’s now clear from the sheer number of images on my hard drives that it’s actually architectural photography. So that’s mostly what you will see here.

I always enjoy creating ‘portraits’ of notable buildings showing them to best advantage. The process is similar to portrait photography in which you want to show the subject from the best possible angle, in the most favourable light and without distractions. I also like using contemporary architecture as a source of details for abstract architectural art. But taking the photograph is just the start. Post processing has limitless possibilities enabling a personal interpretation and style of image creation.

I think the abstract photos make the best wall art and Redbubble provides many options for printing and framing.
