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. Like everyone else when I 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 visitor.
Architecture in general but interiors in particular have the ability to effect people psychologically. A person’s response to walking into a space can be immediate and profound. 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.
Although I am a accomplished post production technician I always try to bring authenticity a photograph, avoiding the cold and clinical imagery from CAD so often seen. I prefer to use natural light and capture in camera as much as I can and where possible i prefer to have people included in an image to give the scene a true sense of a living/working environment. My main aim is to render the Architects or interior designers ideas faithfully into a slice of time while evoking a spontaneous positive response in the viewer.
