Mark Walsh is creative professional specialising in architectural photography and is based in Melbourne Australia.
I’ve been photographing building exteriors and interiors for years, both professionally and for personal pleasure. When I see or enter a building I’m immediately drawn to the play of light and the harmony of materials and geometry. But what most interests me is the overall ‘feeling’ that a building or internal space can evoke in the average visitor.
Architecture in general but interiors in particular have the ability to effect people subconsciously. A person’s response to walking into a space can be subtle and immediate. It’s an intimate but public reaction, a dialogue between two strangers. I think it’s the job of a well made photograph to be faithful to this interplay.
Where possible I always try to bring authenticity a photograph, avoiding the cold and clinical imagery so often seen. In order to preserve the feel of the scene I prefer to use natural light and capture in camera as much as I can. I also like to have people included in an image to give the space a true sense of a living/working environment.
In my commercial work my main aim is to render the Architects or Interior Designers ideas faithfully into a thin slice of time while preserving that spontaneous reaction in the viewer.
