Architectural Photography


Stewart Photographic has provided architectural photography services since 1991. Michael shoots a variety of subject matter, but don’t mistake that for a lack of skill in the specialty of architectural photography. He was trained by the best and has a love for architecture. Michael spent several years doing big building photography all over the world with famed architectural photographers from NYC’s Esto Agency. He assisted some of the best known photographers on major project that were published in numerous magazines, including Architectural Digest and Better Homes & Gardens. Michael understands the process architects use in competitions and their needs for architectural photography. Interior and exterior photography of buildings and structures requires technical skill and discipline. Photographers must track: weather, sun angles, angles of view, shadows lengths, use high resolution cameras, have sharp lenses and sharp minds. Michael feels that it’s important to understand the story behind the building in order to make representative photographs. Michael’s curiosity often leads him to research the buildings he photographs extensively, before his architectural photography begins.


Stewart Photographic covers Baltimore Maryland to Richmond Virginia industrial photography assignments as well as local business. We have also completed Architectural photography assignments in almost every State. Our equipment is packed to travel and we are experienced in getting it through the airport and to your location. “Have camera and lighting, will travel!”


Always an issue, and one that we monitor carefully using the best technology available. We always try to leave flexibility in our travel plans to accommodate weather delays. If your project requires outdoor photography, please hope for good weather but plan for bad. Our weather delay billing policies are very liberal, we need our expenses covered for extra travel days and flight changes, but we are in no way cashing in on misfortune due to bad weather.


Please contact us with as many details as possible about your assignment. We are very competitive with our pricing, and we do not want clients to feel that we are in any way arbitrarily making up prices. A “day rate” simply doesn’t mean anything because some photographs take multiple days to set up and others can be done with the click of the shutter. If you can tell us what product you would like to end up with, we can give you a quote and we will stick to the price unless you change the parameters of the assignment.


Model and Property releases are necessary in some situations where contracted workers are being used in photographs. We recommend having all visibly identifiable workers sign off before their images are used commercially.
