Architectural Photography

Riley Snelling, Riley Snelling Photography

Presented on March 24, 2021 via Zoom 

Architectural photographers have an important and lasting impact on the representation of architecture. In contemporary culture, the value of images is simultaneously amplified and diluted by the platforms we use on a daily basis. Understanding how to use images to communicate with potential clients can make all the difference. In this talk, we will show how images are crafted with intent, provide guidance on how to work with a photographer and discuss how to reach a larger audience with the images you have.

Riley Snelling is an Ontario based freelance photographer that specializes in documenting the world as we built it. From small basement renos to large institutional projects, his passion is helping architects and designers tell a story through images. After graduating from Ryerson University with a BFA in Photography Riley worked alongside some of Toronto’s top architectural photographers before starting his own business. Since 2017 Riley has been commissioned by some of Canada's most prestigious and emerging design firms. His work has been featured in Dwell, Azure, Canadian Interiors, Designlines, The Globe & Mail and several more.
