WIRED OPEN LABS 2018: Photography - Architecture & Buildings

  • In the workshop you will learn ways to express the built environment, focusing on techniques particular to architectural photography and how to use the equipment you already own to capture the Aussie style from corrugated iron to rendered Besser Blocks, in your own unique way.

  • Australia has a fit for purpose vernacular architecture. From the rustic Snowy Mountains log shack to the suburban McMansion, each building speaks of the time they were erected and the sensibilities each owner puts upon their function and form. Photographing Australian architecture within the landscape often highlights the dry and flat place we call home, and it takes a compassionate eye to find the beauty in fibro shacks. Monumental architecture is less relevant in Australia, there's a more hand crafted ‘slow’ way of looking at buildings here.

  • We will examine the best way to tell the story of the Australian vernacular architecture in this workshop.

  • this 3.5 hour workshop INCLUDES:

    •  An introduction on photographic techniques, cameras, and lenses, in relation to architecture;
    •  Traditional through to modern ways of processing photos;
    •  An introduction to the theory behind architectural photography, including a focus on light, detail and empathic responses to architecture;
    •  How to tell the story of the building;
    •  Participants will put together a number of photo essays of different buildings at Kimo Estate.

Patrick Ronald (born 1980) is a Australian artist whose work investigates the subtle splendor in the everyday world, creating exhibitions that blend sculpture and photography to create immersive installations that transcend a singular image and instead aim to recreate a sense of space and evoke memories of the viewers past.

Utilising the nature of photography to create illusion his work ranges from larger scale hypereal photographs to site specific installations that need to be investigated with a magnifying glass. In all his exhibitions he is asking the viewer to look at the work and the world slowly and investigate the little things to find small treasures and unexpected beauty.


This project is assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.


The Wired Lab is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
