Borough Architects and Inti Construction shortlisted for RIBA East Award 2024 https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2024/2/borough-architects-and-inti-construction-win-2023-award HUGE CONGRATULATIONS again to Ze'ev, Julian and their teams at Borough Architects and Inti Construction for being shortlisted in the 2024 RIBA East Awards!!!

I was thrilled when Ze'ev asked me to photograph this project. After seeing the care and dedication that went into its construction, I was eager to help showcase the skills and craftsmanship involved through careful and patient photography. The images would ultimately be used to help with archives, bids for future work and submissions for awards. It was an honour to play my part in helping turn the judges eyes and attention to the project, and I'm thrilled with the deserved success they have achieved so far - already picking up a CFCI award in 2023. I hope this project leads to many more opportunities to work together, creating positive outcomes in the future. Well done to all those involved in the build.

Some thoughts on Industry Awards and Photography

There is no doubt that winning industry awards is a significant milestone for architects and design firms. They not only validate hard work but bring with them numerous benefits, such as increased credibility, exposure, a competitive edge, and even improved employee morale and retention.

As part of winning these awards, the presentation of the project submission is also essential, and high-quality photography plays a critical role in achieving recognition for excellence in the field.

First and foremost, high-quality photography shows the design and aesthetics of the project, highlighting creativity and attention to detail. Judges and clients are drawn to projects that are visually appealing, and through experience in being part of submissions which subsequently won RIBA National Awards and RIBA House of the Year titles, I've seen first-hand that photographs can make all the difference.

If you know me or have worked with me before, you'll probably have heard me banging on about the importance of putting the same energy and commitment to image making during the work-in-progress stage. This isn't just because I'd like to generate a larger invoice, it's that high-quality photography tells the story of the project, showcasing the design process, problems overcome, inspiration, and impact. Judges and clients are also interested in the backstory of the project, where it's come from, why it's changing and photographs do help convey the project's narrative, vision and delivery.

Judges and clients want to see the project close up, highlighting the firm's attention to detail and commitment to excellence and consistency. They often look for projects that demonstrate a high level of craft; quality photography, well planned and thought through, showcase this.

One of the challenges that architects and design firms face is how to present their projects in the best possible light. It can be time-consuming and stressful to try and capture the perfect photograph or set that demonstrates the true design, creativity, and impact of the project. This is where a professional architectural photographer like me can be an important asset.

By working with together, architects and design firms can have the worry of how their projects should be presented from a visual point of view removed.

Moreover, working with Richard Fraser Photography means that architects and design firms can save time and resources. My approach means that I can work carefully and with skill and experience across a range of uses and designs, always delivering high-quality photographs that meet your requirements.

Richard Fraser Photography is an excellent choice for architects and design firms who want to present their projects in the best possible light. By working with a professional architectural photographer, firms can ensure that their projects are captured in a way that showcases their work in its best light. Whilst there are greater roles at play with architecture and design; namely the appreciation of space, how we use it and how we feel within our designed environments, gaining industry awards, increased exposure, and a competitive edge in the market are always useful tools in creating and maintaining a successful practice.

Emily and Rowan Haysom present at CAR https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2023/12/emily-and-rowan-haysom-present-at-car We were treated to a thought provoking presentation by Emily and Rowan Haysom a few weeks ago, hosted by Cambridge Architectural Research. Thank you! I'm still thinking about it now...


Architecture is obviously about designing buildings, but also about shaping the environment and the society we live in. It influences our mood, behavior, and well-being. The quality of the spaces we inhabit can have a positive or negative impact on our mental and physical health, our productivity and creativity, our social interactions and relationships, and our sense of identity and belonging.


Rowan and Emily discussed how they sought to develop relationship-based planning, study inherent patterns for growth and open systems to allow for more informed spaces in which we live whilst helping us to remain grounded in nature.


I have been lucky enough to photograph many of their projects and these were used throughout the presentation to help explain ideas, concepts and creations effectively. Find out more about them and what they do:

RIBA retrospectively look at Lochside House https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2023/11/riba-retrospectively-look-at-lochside-house It's been lovely seeing RIBA retrospectively looking at the previous winners of House of the Year and leading with this photograph I took of Lochside House for Haysom Ward Miller.

Find out more below and see more photographs from the project on this link:
https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/p615310389

More about Lochside:

RIBA National Award winner and House of the Year award. Lochside House looks as though it's grown out of the ground. It's a small-scale, sustainable home made from local materials, which sits on the edge of a loch in the West Highlands.

“This building has been tailored to its site. It’s been stitched and woven… seamed in to the tapestry of this place, and it is so much the better for it," said Kevin McCloud.

The house is formed of three finely-crafted buildings, huddled together, and a separate studio for the owner who is a ceramic artist.The buildings are tucked into a natural fold in the landscape, clad in burnt Scottish larch and protected by a traditional drystone wall. They appear almost camouflaged. Each has been carefully designed around established trees with roofs that echo the mountains in the distance.

Lochside House is perfectly integrated into this wild, rugged, rocky and windswept landscape. Due to its remote location, the house is completely off-grid: all energy comes from the sun and water is pulled up from a borehole. It leaves the surrounding environment as undisturbed as possible. "It wasn't straightforward," said Tom Miller, the architect of Lochside House. "It was only possible because we had a client with the uncompromising determination and vision to keep pushing us to achieve our best, and a contractor’s team for whom we have enormous respect - they seemed to thrive on the unique challenges posed by building on such an exposed and inaccessible site."

Inside, the rooms are comfortably sized with a pared-back aesthetic.
Walls are lined in white oiled timber, surfaces are skimmed with a rough textured plaster and large windows at varying heights capture the stunning views.

This Lochside home was designed by Haysom Ward Miller and built by Spey, who were already known as winners of the master builders prize for Scotland.

The beautiful house is now a winner of a RIBA National Award, House of the Year Award and RIAS Award in 2018 for its sheer excellence in detail, material use and situation.

Congratulations to everyone involved.

One Park Drive, London https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2023/4/one-park-drive-london This month took me to One Park Drive, a 58-storey residential tower located in Canary Wharf, London. The tower is designed by Herzog & de Meuron, a world-renowned architecture firm known for their innovative and striking designs.

One of the most notable features of the building is its cylindrical shape, which provides residents with uninterrupted views of the city. The exterior of the building is clad in a pattern of angled glass panels that create a unique texture and reflect the changing colors of the sky throughout the day.

The tower's structural system is composed of a reinforced concrete core and steel frame, which provides stability and allows for the building's slender form. The building's height is achieved through a series of setbacks that create terraces and outdoor spaces for residents to enjoy.

Inside, the tower features spacious apartments with floor-to-ceiling windows that provide ample natural light and stunning views of the city. The interiors are finished with high-quality materials and modern fixtures, creating a luxurious living experience for residents.

Whether apartment living is your thing or not, this tower stretches the possibilities of modern architectural design and is a masterpiece of engineering.

 

Architect: Herzog & de Meuron

Main Contractor: Canary Wharf Group

Frame Contractor: Expanded

Structural Engineer: AKT II

Where the snowdrops grow: Fordham Abbey https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2023/2/where-the-snowdrops-grow-fordham-abbey I've been asked to photograph something a little different to usual...

Look closely and you'll see that even the tiniest details in nature are interconnected. Take the humble snowdrop; a vital source of nourishment at this time of year for the bees before the pollen and nectar of the Spring flowers hit full bloom. As an architectural photographer, I've come to appreciate the importance of taking on diverse opportunities to sharpen my skills.

But I've also realised that the wider environment plays a crucial role in shaping the buildings we create. It's all connected, and by taking some time to stay back and look at the bigger picture, staying attuned to the world around us, we can become better architects and photographers alike.

Haysom Ward Miller's Suffolk House on Grand Designs tonight for House of the Year 2022 https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2022/11/haysom-ward-millers-suffolk-house-on-grand-designs-tonight-for-house-of-the-year-2022 !!!NEWSFLASH!!!

 

I'm absolutely delighted that as part of the submission for the 2022 RIBA awards, Suffolk House, by Haysom Ward Miller have gone and made it to the RIBA House of the Year long list This is the third time in four years. Quite something!

It has been picked up by Channel 4's Grand Designs TV and will feature on tonight's episode headed by the great Kevin MacLeod. It's always such a buzz to be involved in helping architectural practices gain the recognition they deserve through these awards - be it long list, short list or overall winner (and I've been lucky enough to be involved in the photography side of all three outcomes). In this case, RFP completed the photography for archive and submission to the awards, which was subsequently deemed worthy of a visit from RIBA jurors. 

It has already picked up a RIBA National Award and Regional Award and should be proud of that alone.

Well done to all of the team at the wonderful Haysom Ward Miller and good luck tonight, alongside the other deserving buildings.

UK LPOTY - RUNNER UP - URBAN LIFE https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2022/10/uk-lpoty---runner-up---urban-life I'm thrilled to make this year's Landscape Photography of the Year book and touring exhibition, starting in Paddington Station for all to see later this month!


It's an incredible effort from everyone to even enter @uklpoty and it's always special subsequently being chosen to be part of the book somehow.

Here's my image, which came in as the runner up in the Urban Life category this year. I've been bursting to tell you all about this but wasn't allowed until today πŸ€«πŸ˜‚.

As many of you will know, I take great care photographing the built environment for my wonderful clients and through my personal projects, one of which has continued with interest over on @fraserproject. If you like this one, then you'll enjoy what's on offer over there too so go check it out and follow for future updates.

Finally, @charlie_waite must have a mention here too - he has for a long, long time inspired and informed my practice. Studying his image making and the great care and precision which goes into the process struck a chord with me years ago which still chimes today. His meticulous approach and heartfelt passion for what he does informs me each and every time I approach the environment I'm presented with; albeit so often different from the scenes Charlie might choose!

Well done again to all involved this year. I tried to tag the winners in here but could only find some of you!

David Morley Architects reach British Construction Industry Awards finals! https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2022/7/david-morley-architects-reach-british-construction-industry-awards-finals Photos taken earlier in the year for David Morley Architects LLP at a newly built Church and Community Hub close to London.

 

Some careful planning for spring sunshine and a few very early starts paid off with this now becoming a 2022 British Construction Industry Awards finalist! This space is inspiring through the mixed uses available & its cross-generational, social, medical, cultural and religious offerings. The drive and passion of everyone involved in helping this building play a truly beneficial role in the local community uplifts it beyond the (gorgeous) bricks and mortar to something really special.

Haysom Ward Miller win 2022 RIBA National Award! https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2022/6/haysom-ward-miller-win-2022-riba-national-award Absolutely delighted for them doesn't even sum it up!!!

Architects' Haysom Ward Miller have won a 2022 RIBA National Award with their Stone Cottage in Suffolk. This is HUGE news because out of the thousands of buildings constructed each year, only 29 have won the award this year; even fewer of them residential buildings, so this is really special.

RIBA announced the regional awards a few months back, of which Stone Cottage was a part of the RIBA East announcement. To go on from there and win a RIBA national award amongst all of the other incredible entries up and down the UK is a feat achieved by a deserving practice led by Rowan, Patrick, Liz and Tom. A group who have honed their skills in creating buildings of integrity, honesty, beauty and a knack for enabling them to provide exactly what a space should create: effortless living in an uplifting environment. By effortless I mean that feeling which is achieved when a space feels like it's working with you, not against you. It pushes you on, not pulls back. Their designs are not flashy, not based solely on trends, but in the thought given to how space works, how it has differing parts to play amongst its users in this orchestra of life, how the materials we're surrounded by affect our daily patterns of movement as well as emotion. Haysom Ward Miller get it right, from what I've seen over the years working with them, time and again.

The link to the RIBA National Award for Stone Cottage is here: Stone Cottage, Suffolk.

You can see some more images on my website: Stone Cottage on richardfraserphotography.co.uk

 

But why am I so delighted?

 

Well, when I was starting out as a professional photographer back in 2013, Patrick Ward agreed to let me loose on a project he had created in a converted barn in East Anglia. It was from that moment that I felt something ignite between the absolute passion for what I do combined with somebody else putting trust in my work, commitment and passion to demonstrate their project in it's best light whilst staying truthful to what's really there (not all photographers do that last bit!). I plan meticulously for weather, season, time of day and sun path, occasionally to the frustration/bemusement of those who are responsible for granting access to the spaces I photograph!

Over the years we have got to know each other better and I like to think what I photograph for them has improved as a result of extensive dialogue between us all. To this end, Haysom Ward Miller have in the past 4 years now won 3 (THREE!) RIBA National and regional awards, 1 RIAS award and a House of the Year award (RIBA, Grand Designs amongst others). The only year they didn't win one of these awards was because they didn't submit anything that time around. I am lucky enough to be chosen to photograph all of them for their archive, marketing and subsequent award submission purposes.

No, it's not all due to the photography (although I'd like to say it is!), but it does play its part in conveying the story of buildings to judges of all types of awards or those tendering for competition. To that end what I do IS very important in this process and I am just so glad I can be part of this success for such wonderful people. Long may it continue!

Some planning for another exciting photoshoot - Borough Architects and Inti Construction https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2022/5/yesterdays-planning-for-another-exciting-photoshoot A hugely enjoyable visit yesterday with @boroarc and @inti_construction to see their new space in the heart of Cambridge, replacing a former industrial garage site.

Being born and growing up just around the corner from here, it's fabulous to see the care and attention this terraced house in a conservation area has been given from the design concept through to the build materials and quality of finish achieved. There has clearly been a lot of love and skill involved.

It's always helpful to meet people who played a part in the creation of the spaces before it's photographed. It helps to understand the story behind how it became a physical, tangible space. Ze'ev and Julian were able to do this perfectly, which I'll share alongside the final images when they're ready.

These photos are from a visit before the actual photoshoot with the Google Pixel 6 Pro, so I can't wait to be let loose over the next few weeks with the @fujifilmuk GFX.

 

Contact me for photo enquiries or to chat through a project idea.

Architects Haysom Ward Miller pick up RIBA Award for Stone Cottage https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2022/5/architects-haysom-ward-miller-pick-up-riba-award-for-stone-cottage This week I was delighted for Haysom Ward Miller Architects with the latest award in their list, this time from RIBA in the form of a RIBA East award for 2022!!!

It's been a fascinating journey and a total joy photographing for this lovely lot over the years and I truly value the trust they place in me to photograph their finished buildings & spaces with all the planning, thinking and last minute weather cancellations that comes with it. πŸ˜„β˜€β›ˆ Waiting is always worth it!

It goes to show how working together over a series of projects (years and years!) strengthens ties and ultimately results. Already looking forward to the next one! πŸ“·

Canal Reach, London https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2022/1/canal-reach-london We kicked off the year yesterday with a (birthday weekend) walk through the streets of London.

Off the train at King's Cross and straight round the back via the Guardian offices to see a sculpture exhibition there I'd wanted to visit. Unfortunately it was closed. That doesn't matter on a day where you have loose plans, as everything becomes exciting and feels much more alive. There's something in spontaneity that wakes me up. Onwards to Redemption coffee in the pretty glorious Coal Drops Yard - almond croissant and a milky latte for me on this sun-filled London morning thanks! How this space has changed from its original use. My mind can't help hearing echoes of history that seem to make noise from every direction. We've walked this place so many times to photograph it since the earliest days of its development and the change has been staggering. These photos were taken along Canal Reach, walking north east. Construction continues at pace - in this case, even on a Sunday. Deadlines 'n' all that.

A walk along the canal via Angel and a pub or two resulted in the day finishing at another favourite spot of ours - The Barbican. It IS my taste but it's not everybody's. However you see it, it cannot be denied that this 1960s estate was a forward thinking, expressive feat of architectural design alongside ambitious town planning. I feel so much comfort here - so many happy memories in and around it - almost like listening to an old song.

So the busperson's holiday drew to a close and homeward bound to Cambridge we travelled. Eyes turn to 2022 and the creations I'm lucky enough to be asked to photograph. I must say I'm extremely excited and am already charging the batteries for my first shoot this week.

May I take this opportunity to wish you, your businesses and whatever designs you might be involved in well. Good luck, and I hope to see my friends - new and old, at some point through the year...

Rich.

RH Partnership, James Stirling and the Seeley Library https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/11/rh-partnership-james-stirling-and-the-seeley-library From the 1960s to the 2020s. OK This one felt pretty special. A full circle moment. This is the grade II listed Seeley Library by James Stirling and has been in the hands of RH Partnership for a phased refurbishment with preservation very much in mind. I was born in Cambridge and apart from heading off to university and a little time in London, I have lived here all my life. I have been to this West Road site since I was a little boy – trying to keep up with my dad as he walked through, visiting on school trips, I even laboured on a nearby building with windows that framed the library perfectly in 2003 to help me pay for university. I used to test my new cameras here WAY before I lost my mind and became an architectural photographer!

I guess I think about it more than most because of my profession, but buildings and their idiosyncrasies, for me at least, play a part in creating a sense of home. This one is a major part of my ‘home’. Over the years, they kind of become friends. Still standing throughout the phases of life. Steady. The way light is absorbed and reflected, the shapes and silhouettes they create through day into night, the atmosphere they emit, the smells even. And these change through the seasons as the sun path moves and the temperatures do their cyclical thing. You begin to recognise those patterns, whether it’s conscious or subconscious and with that familiarity comes comfort. Do you know buildings which evoke these feelings? Just me?! Some of you might have noticed two other examples with similar features in Leicester and Oxford which still stand today. Seeley Library's siblings – and this is the middle child.

So by full circle I mean that I can remember standing in this place dreaming of how brilliant it would be if someone actually asked me to photograph a building for them one day. And many years later here I am having photographed it. The very building which inspired my daydreams. It’s an honour to document a building with so much personal and historic importance. Thanks to the staff on site for being so accommodating and of course RH Partnership for asking (they had no idea of how special this place is to me!)

Simple Home, Cambridge by Haysom Ward Miller Architects wins RIBA East Award https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/8/simple-home-cambridge-by-haysom-ward-miller-architects-wins-riba-east-award Simple House, Cambridge.

Photography really does help architects convey their message!

Really delighted to work with Haysom Ward Miller and the owners of Simple House, Cambridge for the photography which helped them gain a RIBA award, announced today, in the RIBA East's 2021 Award Winners. This house has already won a design & construction award in Cambridge and now has a new accolade to add to the list!

This wonderful project is backing up the National Award they won alongside the the RIBA House of the Year back in 2018. Continued excellence, recognised by RIBA judges. Well done to everyone involved. It's a delightful space and inspirational story for all people looking to build their own space.

I was very kindly given the keys after requesting that I photograph the building at different times of day across a period which is only defined by great light! I waited and waited for the right lighting conditions from dawn to dusk and the final set of photos obviously helped convey what a beautiful building it is to be in/around as well as its interesting story - the plot had originally been destined for a very standard 2 up/2 down design before the change of concept was introduced to planners by the people who bought it.

Office photography - refurbishment work in progress https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/10/office-photography---refurbishment-work-in-progress Mantle Business Centres asked for some work-in-progress images of a new office property they have taken on at 9 Hills Road, Cambridge. ⁠
⁠
These images are really helpful in conveying just how much work goes on behind the scenes to refurbish offices to modern standards. ⁠They also wanted a clean looking image for this office exterior - which isn't easy given the fact it's been in situ for decades and is in the middle of being completely gutted. We planned for some direct light to fall on this elevation and luckily the clouds moved into a pleasing position for us. ⁠Including the bike shed in the foreground helps give the message that cycling to work is an option (a great option in my opinion 🚲), but it also disguised the office next door which isn't part of the project. ⁠
⁠
Inside, we wanted to demonstrate what work was going on, preferably with the scale and movement of people there working on it. The result is a series of photos which demonstrate the complexity of an office fit out as well as the skills Mantle poss
ess to help bring such projects to completion.

Architectural Photography - Japanese Inspiration - RIBA East Shortlist 2020 https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/architectural-photography-Japanese-inspiration-RIBA-East-Shortlist-2020 I had the pleasure of photographing this Japanese inspired house for Haysom Ward Miller. The story behind it is a fascinating one, one which challenges our tendency to accept design. Instead of overseeing a proposed structure (the plot they bought came with planning permission), the owners here used their cultural influences and design ideas to set about making this home beautiful through its subtlety, which worked hard to suit their modern needs as well as bringing something unique to the area which isn't overstated in size, shape or form.

The result is a series of clean, light spaces which seem to flow into one another. The materials - clean, natural and neural - are consistent throughout the home, from the wooden beamed, high ceiling height to the custom made ply fronts between the kitchen and bedroom. This palette helps nature set the scene, painting vibrant colours throughout with the indoor plants in full bloom. It's a breathtakingly tranquil place to spend time and I'm sure has become a wonderful home.

Now RIBA East shortlisted.

Kilkenny Avenue, Ely https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/kilkenny-avenue-ely  

Video completed for Palace Green Homes at a former MoD site in Ely.

 

‘The homes at this development are particularly light and airy inside, with good size rooms and generous storage space, so we felt that it was really important not to clutter them but at the same time, we wanted to show how different types of households could live really comfortably in them.

We selected a mix of contemporary and mid-century styles of the furnishings for the show home to give a slightly younger, urban vibe which worked well with the modern neutral palette of paints, carpets, kitchen and bathroom fittings that have been used to refurbish the homes.

We were also mindful that not everyone moving into the development would have, or would want to spend, a large budget on furnishings so we tried to be creative by mixing price friendly, high street furnishings with second hand and antique pieces and bold artwork and accessories to show how you can create a stylish, liveable interior without breaking the bank.’

Trail Running in the Lake District https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/7/trail-running-in-the-lake-district inov8, trail running, running, keep fit, fitness, lake district, UK, outdoor livingTrail Running photography in the Lake District above Derwentwater, Cumbria, UK. A, early, sunny morning in the summer. This UK landscape is perfect for trail running.

⛰️ Slightly off the architectural photography path this time but what a path it is! ⁠
⁠
Up at 5am, on the trail by 5:45, Natalie and I ran an 18k route up Cat Bells, across Maiden Moor and over High Spy before descending through an abandoned slate quarry toward Derwentwater and returning to the trail head along a delightful path beside the water's edge. ⁠
⁠
I've had family up here since I was born and regular visits are essential parts of my annual soul nourishment. As always, THANK YOU beautiful Eden Valley and the Lake District. Now, back to the architectural photography... ⁠
⁠
Hats off to @jamilcoury for inspiring us to get our trail shoes on πŸ‘Ÿ and WOW @inov_8 - these new Roclites are something else! 🌟⁠

AJ Feature https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/2/aj-feature Delighted to be featured by Architects' Journal this week. Hats off to Haysom Ward Miller for another wonderful project.

A gorgeous outcome, providing a home full of light and natural materials. I spent days here watching the sun roll its rays through the room and highlight its different shapes and elevations. Combine this sun with the roof lights and windows on all sides and you end up with a fabulous place to spend time and, in my case, photograph. It never fails to amaze me at how the built environment impacts mood and feeling. The sense of peace you feel from this space is quite incredible. β˜€ 🌿

New Barnet Leisure Centre https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/12/new-barnet-leisure-centre Here is Saunders Boston Architects development of the New Barnet Leisure Centre.

They have created a fantastic pool and leisure complex for the community and there was definitely a buzz about it when I spoke to the visitors, including dog walkers who enjoy walking in the park next to it early in the morning. The light from inside helps them to see!


I wanted to capture it at the start of a new day - the inspired time to kick on and get things going. It always amazes me how on top of things you feel when you've got a job done early in the morning... It's my absolute favourite time - swimming or the gym included. The result was a set of photos with a gym and pool complex which looked ready for the customers. The balance of internal lights glowing against the cool outdoor colours at this time of year helped to portray that sense of warmth and welcome which I was intending to achieve. Also, with photography, the stronger the daylight gets, the more difficult it is to see inside so this time of day was ideal for my aims this time round.

The early morning also helped to negate the need for model releases - the centre is already open to the public and although people in the shots would help with the sense of scale and use, it sometimes complicates the image and takes away from the offering of a brand new space ready for the community, especially if it became very busy. Thanks to all the staff for being so welcoming at such an uncompromising hour!

The Leys Great Hall by Bland Brown and Cole Architects and Charcoalblue https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/the-leys-great-hall-by-bland-brown-and-cole-architects-and-charcoalblue It's amazing how some buildings find a way to hold their own in terms of time and design. This is certainly one of them. A stunning building, which includes this theatre space. I photographed this for my clients back in November 2013 and it still looks as fantastic today.

360 Degree Virtual Tours https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/360-degree-virtual-tours It's been an exciting few months since the last entry on this news page. Instead of not having much to say, it's been quite the opposite - I've been working on some really interesting and varied projects with clients. One of them has brought about the introduction of virtual tours. This is a new offering I will be making available to clients from now on.

A virtual tour enables a 'walkaround' of a space for clients or design teams as their project develops or completes. The advantage of this sort of tour is that you don't have to visit the site to get a superb feel for how it looks. This can help teams to work together more collaboratively and pinpoint how to complete subsequent stages of a build with more cohesion. Additionally, keeping a virtual tour when a building or project is finished can drastically improve your offering through marketing - communicating your work in a new, accurate and exciting way. It enables potential future clients to walk through your projects to get an honest, 360 degree feel of a space.

Have a think about how a virtual tour might help you or your business and get in touch if you want to discuss the process further.

  • Completed builds do display on your website or show to potential clients
  • Work in progress to use in meetings / to update teams or clients
  • Before and after comparisons

Have a look for yourself. This one has been made for King’s Row, Ely by Palace Green Homes.

Photographs of the Award Winning Cambridge 'Eco' Mosque https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/award-winning-cambridge-mosque Recently I had the pleasure of photographing the new Cambridge Eco Mosque for the Cambridge Association of Architecture. We looked ahead at the forecast and dressed with loose clothing as it was what turned out to be the hottest day in UK recorded history up the road in the Cambridge Botanical Gardens at 38.7 degrees. Fortunately the Mosque provided us with some very welcome sunshine. It was a joy to photograph and I could've stayed there all day and night photographing until all my batteries were flat or memory cards filled up. Being still or walking slowly amongst the fanned wooden arches gives you a of peace and space for reflection - a natural material which has been given the thought, time, skill and craftsmanship it deserves.

 

Marks Barfield Architects and the whole construction and design team involved have done a sensational job at delivering a building which is not only fit for purpose but has improved the local area at the same time. Not something which can be said of all new builds in Cambridge.

 

You will see a photo from my shoot on the front cover of the latest copy of Cambridge Architecture. Many thanks to Abayed for being so welcoming and accommodating.

Richard Fraser Photography - Slideshows https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/10/videos Sometimes clients ask me to make a short slideshow sequence to showcase their designs or projects. This I can do...

Here is a recent example for a client who had completed a refurbishment of a historic building in to 17 separate bedrooms for short stay language students. Their aim was simple: make the accommodation look new, clean and inviting enough to stay and study at.

Tip toeing around the trades as they finish snagging isn't uncommon and that was the case at this location... No evidence of them here though thanks to a well planned shoot and great communication with the client regarding the order in which the shots were going to be taken. I knew this by mapping the sun path at this time of year, talking through the needs of the client and going for a walk around before the day of the shoot to avoid any obvious issues lying in wait... they do get you if you don't out-think them!

Feedback from the client was fantastic:

"I AM IN AWE.

These are utterly beautiful.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with you ... We would definitely like to keep connected with your services moving forward."

RIBA House of the Year 2018 https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/12/riba-house-of-the-year-2018 And it won!

I cannot tell you how pleased I have been this past week - we found out that all of the effort photographing Lochside House in the freezing cold Scottish winter has helped its cause. This house has not only won a RIAS and RIBA National Award, but now has been crowned as House of the Year 2018 by the fabulous Kevin McCloud on Channel 4's Grand Designs. 

Hats off to architects Haysom Ward Miller, Spey Build, the vision of Michele the owner and all involved. The write ups and TV show say it all but I cannot quite explain the sense of magic this place holds. I've always adored the quality of light in the winter months and this is proof that photography in the colder seasons has its merits, it just neeeds careful planning.

If you have a project you would like photographed, please get in touch.

Wishing them all the best of luck with their feature on Kevin McCloud's Grand Designs: House of the Year 2018 program on Channel 4 which is tomorrow (Wednesday 28th November).

Richard Fraser at the Cambridge Festival of Ideas 2018 https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/9/richard-fraser-at-the-cambridge-festival-of-ideas-2018 Come and see me speak at the Cambridge Festival of Ideas this year!

15th October. 1800 - 1930.

I've been working hard on a photography project over the past year and a half at Addenbrooke's Hospital. With thousands of images taken, I've managed to select a set I'm really proud of. They seek to document the hidden spaces and their stories within a working hospital to mark the 70th anniversary of the NHS. The evening will start with me talking about the project, followed by a walk to the gallery space and then back to the boardroom for a Q+A with nibbles and drinks.

If you've been following my photography or are interested in these hidden stories, then do try to book yourself in and come along. I'll look forward to seeing you. A limited number of prints will be available for purchase. 

There are a limited number of spaces for this event so early booking is advisable. To book yourself on, click on the link below:

I just love the colour palette this brickwork set with the sky and boards, so set up my tripod and began to take a few shots. As this lady walked by, her gaze up at the new building gave off the sense of awe I had whilst putting a sense of scale to the scene at the same time. Developer: Laragh Homes. Project: Novum.

It was completed in 1967 and is made of white Portland Stone. Just sensational. I was there to scope out another building which I've been asked to photograph. Watch this space!

I really should get some wellies. After wading in, in the knowledge that my feet and trousers would get soaked, I stood there waiting for the camera to do its thing. For some reason a 2am start and soaking clothes just seems worth it. There was a real lack of colour in the sky this morning, so I quickly began to think about making some mono images like this and some neutral images for my upcoming exhibition in July.

Cavaleri Partnership | St John's College School https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/4/cavaleri-partnership-st-johns-college-school Really excited to be asked to make some images of St John's College School for Cavaleri Partnership. This school has a rich history attached to it - the famous choir who walk across to the college board here during term time.

Here's a taster of the results...

production | commissioned project https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2013/12/production-commissioned-project I'm very exctied to show this wip project for a client who has commissioned from me, a series of 10-15 large prints to hang.

The brief is to follow an industrial theme. I have focussed on the units, buildings and locations involved in production of goods.

 

 

The UK is the sixth largest economy in the world measured in terms of GDP and 8th largest measured by purchasing power. Around 24% of the working population are employed as a direct result of manufacture.

barbican https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2013/12/barbican Recent set of images made at The Barbican.

 

 

A work in progress series that aims to feed into an exhibition with artist Steve Smith scheduled for summer 2014.

This is an exploration of urban spaces that are not always looked upon as photogenic but actually, when you stop and look, there is often an aesthetic arrangement of elements to be made.

Enjoy. Ask. Think. 

 

http://www.richardfraserphotography.co.uk/barbican

 

The Barbican Complex in London is an example of brutalist architecture made predominantly from concrete. It comprises of three tall residential towers and a central block which contains flats and other spaces of various purposes. The complex here is now grade II listed as a site of architectural interest. There certainly isn't the feel you would expect from such a cold looking building.

It was created after severe bombing during the second world war and was built between 1965 and 1976 by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon architects.

Amateur Photographer Magazine https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2013/10/amateur-photographer-magazine Publication -

I was so pleased yesterday to find out I've had some of my images published, this time in Amateur Photographer magazine! There are loads and loads of exciting things happening at the moment, especially with my architectural work... Keep an eye out for galleries emerging soon based on this area of my photography. 

I've also been asked to hold a joint exhibition in the summer 2014 with another artist from London, so watch this space for date and location nearer the time.

Ickleford Dawn https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2013/7/ickleford-dawn Had a lovely shoot at Hitchin Lavender, Cadwell Farm, Ickleford this morning. Thanks to the guys there for letting me have access (and at such short notice!). It's certainly an interesting place... somewhere to return to for sure. I'm looking forward to returning when the shop is actually open so that I can buy some of their produce... the smell of the fields do the selling.

Just received some lovely feedback from a charity I was very glad to help out, the RSABI, after they requested to use an image of the summer countryside. It will be used on their website and possibly other publications. Very exciting stuff.

"The RSABI is always keen to use eye-catching photographs that represent the work that we do helping people who have depended on the land. We love this beautiful, crisp image which we believe captures the care and stewardship of those who manage the land and produce the food we all eat."

Tessa Rouse, RSABI.

LPOTY 2012 https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2012/10/lpoty-2012 I have the pleasure of announcing that I have had a photo commended and selected for inclusion in the 'Landscape Photographer of the Year 2012' competition. It is in the book, and will also be printed as part of the exhibition on the South Bank, London in the National Theatre. Mine is on the right, of Ferrybridge Power Station. It is next to another favourite photographer of mine, Ian Bramham.

Having visited last year, it certainly was a place for inspiration. I can't wait to see it up alongside the other entries from this year; I am chuffed.

Dorset Coastal Visit https://richardfraserphotography.co.uk/blog/2012/2/dorset-coastal-visit A recent photo taken at Durdle Door. The colour of the sea was incredible, and the long exposure has helped to accentuate this colour. It also brings with it a sense of serenity. As I sat on the top of the cliff, the winds blew past; blurring the grasses in the foreground.

This place is full of awe and wonder- you just have to find a spot, sit back and soak it up. This was my first visit and I'll be returning...
