Last year I was commissioned by the BBC to create an Architectural photography time-lapse of the new Broadcasting House building at Portland Place, W1A. I am delighted that the BBC have used a lot of this footage in their excellent new comedy series, W1A. The next episode is tonight, I look forward to seeing what other clips they will use! You can see the full sequence here.

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:
