INFO

I'm a London based architectural photographer.

 

My interest in photography began while living at the foothills of the majestic Karakoram mountain range in Pakistan during childhood. I was particularly drawn to the geometric patterns at local mosques and the intricate details of traditional timberwork. Later in life I visited the Alhambra in Granada and Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. Henceforth, I began documenting the built environment.

It is through this memory that I create images of urban landscapes, including often overlooked design details I encounter along the way. Sourcing inspiration from the delicate motifs, calligraphy and geometry in Islamic architectural styles, to the clean designs and leading lines of contemporary architecture. I aim is to bring attention to unseen perspectives, using natural elements to accentuate detail or evoke a mood, telling a visual story as a collaborative journey between client, photographer and audience.   

 

Whether photographing an interior or exterior, I work to emphasize each project’s distinct characteristics - how the structure catches light and the way it relates to its surrounding environment and community. 

Just as refined skills and exceptional attention to detail are required for a great piece of architecture, it is important to capture the essence of an architectural subject or space through photography using the same finesse.

Examples of my work include documenting renovations, hotel interiors, office spaces and locations for property developers. I always aim to work closely with clients, ensuring their requirements are met, through to the delivery of high-resolution post produced images.
