I’ve recently been photographing the new £10 million extension to Prospects College in Basildon. The 3600 m2 project was designed and managed by Ayshford Sansome Architects and is part of a long running redevelopment of the Basildon site. It was nice to photograph a scheme that made so much use of natural daylight, which even extended into the corridors through the clever use of light wells. The use of the natural daylight, natural ventilation and the management of the buildings acoustics created a nice relaxed environment to work in. The shoot took the whole day and due to the poor overcast weather I chose to shoot the exterior of the building in the evening. Overall a very nice project to photograph although achieving a decent White Balance with the yellow and blue painted walls was a bit tricky at times.
