Architecture Portfolio Tip: Get Online

We’re moving away from handing out physical portfolio books and moving towards online portfolios because they’re quick to share and update and offer many more opportunities for marketing. Every creative career requires a portfolio regardless of whether you work freelance or joining an architecture firm. Your portfolio showcases your best projects, inspiration, and processes to give your clients an idea of what it would be like to work with you.

Luckily, it’s easy to get started with an online portfolio. Platforms like Format take a lot of the leg work out of setting up a website so that you can focus on the design and content. Want more tips on how to get started? Please read our guide to architecture portfolio tips.

About Sebastian van damme

Sebastian is inspired from within the architecture world. Through his understanding of process, architecture and urbanism he excels in envisioning the beauty of the built/unbuilt environment. "As we relocate ourselves from one place to another, architecture and its spatial inversion can be seen as the preconditions of our daily life. Sometimes this is highlighted by remarkable designs and sometimes the non-descript environment has it's own sudden beauty. Together they are my inspiration."

Architectural Photography Tip: Use The Right Equipment

As a visual industry, you’re going to need high-quality photos to showcase your best projects. You can hire a professional to shoot your design work, but if you plan on doing this all yourself, you need a little more than your phone camera to get the best shots. Use a camera that can shoot in RAW to have more control of editing the image. You don’t need to buy the most expensive camera out there, but you need to know how to capture high-quality images for your portfolio.

About Shyue Woon

Shyue Woon (b.1975), trained as an Architect, uses photography as a tool to explore subtext in the built environment. In his daily practice as an architect, he turns aspirations and dreams into constructible reality. At night, he reverses the process – deconstructing reality and spaces into fiction and figments of imagination. Shyue Woon’s debut photobook “Dark Cities” won the inaugural First Draft Award. Woon was also selected as an artist in Mt Rokko International Photography Festival.

Architecture Photography Tip: Look For Unique Angles

You can convey a completely different mood and story of a building just by changing the angle of how you soot. Do your research on the building or space you are photographing—and don’t forget to consider its environment—to find small details that may be otherwise unnoticed. Unique angles can help you capture interesting photographs of buildings and interiors.
