It’s Marchitecture Month. (See what I did there…)

I can still remember many years ago looking at House and Leisure magazine and later Visi Magazine and drooling over the architecture and interior photography and thinking how amazing it must be to do that for a living...

This was of course long before I took up photography and started creating images for a living. One day you are in the Karoo photographing an eco-lodge retreat and the next you are in Sabi Sands photographing their latest creation and then you are in the heart of Sandton photographing a glass and steel behemoth.

My architecture and interiors photography career has not been that fantastic (yet…), but have photographed quite a varied set of architecture and interiors, and I am always excited when a quote is accepted for a really beautiful property.

So this month we will be talking about architecture photography to some great photographers who will be showing us their work and providing some insight into what it takes to be an architecture photographer.

I am also going to challenge myself and go out and shoot at least one building in my area that I have seen and thought I’d love to shoot one day.
Well, one day is this month.

First off today at 6:30 pm CAT, we have Tristan McClaren | Stranger Things: Johannesburg Architectural Photography.

Creative showcase Tristan McLaren


I am still confirming the other Livestream topics and photographers so keep checking the events page on the Hunters of Light website.


Monthly competition

This month we are looking for your best architectural images to win an amazing Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens!
A versatile standard zoom lens that’s an ideal route into full-frame photography. Great for portraits, landscapes and when you only want to take a single lens out with you. Smooth near-silent focusing when shooting movies gives footage a professional look and feel.

Enter your images here.

Thank you to Canon South Africa for sponsoring this amazing prize.
