Photography with an Architectural Attitude

Richard Hulbert, Architect AIBC, RAIC, FRAIC, RCA, AIA

“Photography is a constant struggle between the search for an honest and true documentation of reality and the inevitable interpretation, distortion, and hoped for enhancement of reality. The search is noble, but the inevitability is likely certain . . . and either goal will, thankfully, remain elusive.”Richard Hulbert, 2010

Most photographs contain a “subject” within a “setting” or background. The reality is that Architecture is both a “subject” and a “setting.” Think about all the images you have taken or will take in the future that contain building exteriors or interiors as the featured subject or as backgrounds to a myriad of other photo subjects.

While we photographers like to quote the now famous marketing phrase,  “a picture is worth a thousand words,” it is through the sharing of our thoughts, words, and images, regardless of genre, that will inspire each of us to take our own photography to the next level.

Richard Hulbert is an International award winning and published Architect, Urban Designer and Photographer.

As an Academician in the Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts, Richard was one of the youngest members ever to be elected to that body.

He has been a frequent Lecturer, Teacher and Seminar Panel Participant on four continents.  Richard has been named a Fellow in the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada which is among the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a member.

Currently, Richard is also a Teacher of Photography at the Vancouver Photo Workshops Studio and is a faculty member of the Nikonians Academy, a photography training institute in North America and Europe. Richard has also been accepted to teach photography courses and workshops at UBC and Simon Fraser University.

    Fantastic! Especially the advice to make the photo personal. Shoot what pleases you and that's likely what will end up pleasing others (toss the rules if that's what it takes). 6 out of 5 stars.
