BakerHicks design, engineering and project delivery required a diverse portfolio of images and video footage to fully explain their involvement at Whitechapel Station. An extremely complex project that was constructed whilst the station remained active. Costing a total of £831 Million it has been a significant part of Crossrail, Europe’s largest infrastructure project.
The architects managed to create access to the new station through the sensitively restored original entrance on Whitechapel High Street, opened in 1876. It feels a bit like a time warp as you progress from the 1800’s through to a cathedral like ticketing hall, then down into the clean white, minimal space of the new Queen Elizabeth Line.
The sun gently descended transforming the streamlined aluminium colonnade fins into delicate shades of dusty pink, gently fading into a smokey blue. With one camera time-lapsing this transformation of the building, another on our drone capturing those previously impossible angles and the last moving on ground level documenting the monumental volumes, we certainly had our hands full at Cambridge Science Park.
The expectations of the architectural photographer have shifted dramatically in recent years and the Covid lockdowns have provided us with some time to reflect on our practice and further refine the motion side of our offerings.
Still images certainly fill a requirement in any architectural practices marketing, however as internet speeds rise the appetite for motion content increases. Moving in, around and through an architectural space really takes the audience on an intimate journey. We are really excited to hear what you think about the short video above.
The architects Scott Brownrigg worked tirelessly to produce possibly the cleanest most refined structure we have photographed. Every detail is a masterclass in minimal design aided by Ramboll UK’s engineering skills.
New life springs up next to the River Avon. Scott Brownrigg commissioned us to photograph this exciting new development in the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath. 2200 new homes are being created in this highly sensitive historic location. We had a great day covering the site from all angles until the sun went down, then we found a nice quiet spot on the river to get some tranquil dusk images.
We recently photographed the stunning newly renovated office space at 111 Park Street, Mayfair. A controlled palette of warm grey tones and white materials has been used to create a serene atmosphere across the six floors of premium rental space by HOK.
It appears that all was tranquil, however this was the day before the grand opening, which means builders, painters and caterers were running all over the place! In between the chaos we managed to capture these pictures of the space. We’ve been photographing refined office spaces for over 15 years now from BP’s corporate Head Quarter to intimate luxurious spaces like this one.

During our photographic commission to document the 15th Architecture Biennale, we produced a short film. It consists of dramatic drone footage over Venice to set the scene and some exciting time lapse moments in the Biennale. All of the content has been generated by us and then edited in house.
Our clients are always looking for new methods of communicating their design ideas, this is our latest response. Utilising DSLR filming techniques and the latest portable drone equipment we are capable of producing refined cinematic films at a fraction of the cost charged by traditional production companies. We hope you enjoy the results.
