The blog of Simon Kennedy, Architectural Photographer based in London.

London architectural photography by Simon Kennedy of Tower Bridge House by Rogers Stirk Harbour Architects, an energy-efficient speculative office building. The design of the building is intended to provide a visual link between the historic Docklands and the City of London, and the modern glass facade resonates proportionally with the traditional warehouse buildings adjacent to it.

These photographs were made using a Canon Eos 5d mark ii, Canon EF 17mm f4 TS-E, Canon EF 24mm f3.5 TS-E, Canon EF 45mm f2.8 TS-E, Canon EF 70-200mm f4 L.

The blog of Simon Kennedy, Architectural Photographer based in London.

The creation of Architecture time-lapses (timelapses) combines two passions – architectural photography and video editing and production. An architectural photographers knowledge of light and composition can be combined with a video producers sense of rhythm and editing. Like most things video-related, time-lapses are enormously time-consuming to create. Like many things video-related, they are very satisfying to complete.

Architectural time-lapses are a superlative way to show the path of the sun across the facade of a building, the way a building changes in the light as it gets dark or as the sun comes up, and the way people use and interact with a building.

Here are a couple of architectural time-lapses I have made recently. The first is one commissioned by the BBC to celebrate the opening and inhabitation of its incredible new headquarters in Portland Place London:
