Commercial real estate photography is something I really enjoy doing. There is a professional standard expected, and when the results are delivered there is no better feeling of accomplishment. Immortalizing brick and steel in a memorable photograph isn't as easy as walking up and snapping a photo. Angle, light and composition are three key elements in making any good photo, but when it comes to large structures those three elements are even more vital.
Things I look for are direction of light, time of day (going for the softer light in the evening or morning, depending on the direction of the face of the building), and the angle that catches the most detail and design of the structure. Additional bonus elements include foliage, foreground structures, and water. With this photo of the Pikeville Medical Center in Pikeville, Kentucky, I was lucky enough to get some very nice golden hour evening light on the face of the building, along with the orange color of the leaves lining the Emergency Room Entrance.
This photo was taken on assignment while shooting in Eastern Kentucky for a regional bank and it's rural branches. If you are in need of commercial real estate photography, or perhaps images from an entire location, area, region, please contact me for a custom, affordable photography rate.
