Koru Architects is an award-winning, design-led practice specialising in eco-design, that has earned a reputation for thoughtful, environmentally-friendly design and a 'client-centred' approach to projects. Their mission is to create spaces that are delightful, comfortable and sustainable. They work throughout Sussex and the South-East on residential and commercial projects, both new-build and extensions/alterations.
The architect, Mark Pellant, asked me to capture images for his rebranded website. After a reece at the main location to understand when to work with the natural light. I photographed a Passivhaus for his 'Legacy Home', the living room for his 'Family Home', a kitchen for the 'Home Extension', his office for a client meeting and his headshot.
The lighting for each was set-up prior to the models arriving and then tweaked, with Mark looking at a monitor giving me notes. A minimum of 2x flash heads were used per set up, with high-speed sync as I was working with the sun.
In the edit, the living room was a composite to include multiple exposures for the natural light hitting an overexposed highly reflective floor. In the office I completed the computer screen as his screen was not bright to light his website site page. Working in Sussex shooting and lighting architecture photography was a technical and creative dream.
