Architectural Photography in Lewes, East Sussex
One of my commercial photography repeat clients are structural and civil engineers HaworthMcCall. I’ve done many interesting shoots for them in the last few years in Brighton and further afield in East Sussex. I say ‘interesting’ because anything that takes me to a place I haven’t seen or experienced before is thrilling to me. Also, I embrace the challenge to take the best possible photos of every new thing that I am hired to photograph.
This latest was a project was a building for new classrooms for Lewes Old Grammar School. I was to take photos of the buildings, even thought it was still very much a construction site. And so I was handed a high viz jacket and a hardhat. :-)
This building has some wonderful features, both inside and out. Unusual angles…
A round skylight.
A living roof!
The lovely wood cladding reminded me of buildings in the Nordic countries.
I asked the foreman what he thinks is especially special about this building and he said the stone wall, so I made sure I took some more photos highlighting it. I think it’s a locally sourced Sussex flint wall.
And I’m guessing it is to keep this new building in the style of the historic site.
A few more interesting angles and anything that caught my eye, and I was done. Really enjoyed this shoot, as I do most of my work!
Man at work…
And so it was time to hand in my high-viz jacket and hard hat, and return to Brighton – one new experience richer!
