Lecturing to Architectural Technology and Interior Design students

March 05, 2014

I’ve recently undertaken some part time lecturing at the University of Northampton. The University approached me and asked me if I could put together some lectures on Architectural and Interior photography for 1st year BSC(Hons) Architectural Technology and Interior Design Students. I was pleased to be invited to do this as I think photography is a particularly useful skill within the design and construction industry. Even a basic knowledge can allow the effective capture and documentation of your own work while improving your ability to convey ideas and narrative to others.

Over the past few weeks we have covered narrative, composition, verticality depth of field and started to look at the tricky subject of lighting models all through a series of lectures and practical sessions. It’s interesting to see how quickly people can start to develop a set of skills when subject to concentrated learning.
