How to Photograph Iconic Architecture With Paul Clemence

Oscar Niemeyer. Zaha Hadid. Le Corbusier. Louis Kahn. The works of these renowned architects are among the most photographed in the world, and it's no surprise given the striking forms and classic silhouettes of their buildings. That said, once a building has been captured in a million photographs, its image can start to feel repetitive. How can we reframe iconic architecture in new and unexpected ways? Which perspectives of these buildings have not yet been caught on camera? Is it possible to change perceptions of the world's most famous buildings by photographing them in unconventional angles and unusual light?

As the 3rd Annual One Photo Challenge approaches its exciting climax, we invite award-winning photographer and competition juror Paul Clemence to explore answers to some of these questions. We'll look back at some of the best images of iconic architecture from last season's competition, and explore the ways in which photographers can help us see these familiar structures in a new light.

By attending this talk, you'll learn:

  • How to look for new and interesting angles when photographing iconic architecture
  • How composition and lighting can completely change the way in which a famous building is viewed
  • How Paul capture the works of renowned architects around the world
