Mark Walsh is creative professional specialising in architectural photography and is based in Melbourne Australia.
When I see or enter a building I’m immediately drawn to the play of light and the harmony of materials & geometry. But what most interests me is the overall ‘feeling’ that a building or internal space can evoke in a 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 immediate and subtle. 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 warmth & authenticity a photograph, avoiding the cold and clinical imagery so often seen in Architectural Photography. To preserve the feel of the scene I prefer to use natural light whenever possible 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 still preserving that spontaneous sense of wonder in the viewer.
