Architectural Photographer Cambridge

Andrew Hatfield is an Architectural Photographer, MRICS Chartered Building Surveyor and Project Manager with a BA(Hons) in Photographic Practice. His interest in photography developed because the photographers he employed rarely managed to capture the essence of the buildings they were asked to photograph. He now believes that this deficiency stems from a lack of appreciation of design, the subject and the intended audience.

He embarked on a BA(Hons) in Photographic Practice to develop a greater understanding of narrative and contextualisation within the built environment. He graduated with 1st class honours, winning the Dave Keskeys Memorial Arts Award for best art student and a nomination for student of the year in the process. His fine art work is on going and continually influences his commercial practice, allowing him to produce work that is both involving and descriptive.

His practice generally utilises cutting edge digital equipment and techniques in order to ensure the most effective and commercially efficient coverage. Although he is also fully equipped to shoot large or medium format film if preferred.

He now works full time as a professional commercial photographer specialising in documentation of Architecture and building interiors. He operates throughout the UK and London. Contact Andrew for:

His work is typically inspired by photographers that are not generally known for their architectural work but for their ability to display a strong sense of narrative, such as Walker Evans, Duane Michals, Saul Leiter and Lee Friedlander. Further inspiration comes from the study of photographers that use Architecture as a means of commenting on society and humanity as opposed to the study of Architecture in its own right. These photographers have all emerged from the The Kunstakademie Düsseldorf after studying under Bernd and Hilla Becher. The work of this Düsseldorf school  is typified by the likes of Candida Höfer, Thomas Struth and Andreas Gursky.
