100 rooms in 100 days

February 25, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Throughout my career, I have had the privilege to travel throughout the world to photograph amazing architecture and interior design for my clients.  I have captured properties in 45 states and 10 different countries, in some of the most breathtaking destinations throughout the world.  The breadth of my work covers a myriad of architectural and interior design styles.  Each room I capture presents its own challenges and opportunities, requiring a fresh approach.

 

No matter the setting or situation, however, one thing remains consistent in my approach.  In every room I approach, two overarching imperatives guide my work: context, and connection.

 

Great architecture and interior design mirrors the surroundings in which it is created.  It is a part of the environment, not separate from it.  So a room’s context is important to the story.  As such, I work hard in the decisions I make about lighting and composition, to capture a room’s context wherever possible.

 

Context in an image, while necessary, is often not sufficient for an image to move the viewer.  The audience must also feel a connection to the image.  A great contextual image of a room can also be quite sterile.  When I capture a room, I work to place the camera and the elements in the room in such a way as to invite the viewer in, place them in the room, change their role from observer to participant in the image.

 

Over the next 100 days, I will be sharing images of some of the great interior design and architecture I have captured throughout my career through my twitter account.  My twitter handle is @esjphoto.  You can follow me there or check out my galleries here on this site.  Questions or comments are welcome below, or you can reach me at scott@esjphoto.com.    A book to accompany this campaign will be available soon at blurb.com.
