Before and After Architectural Photography

We often look at amazing architectural photos in publications, magazines, and billboards and take them for granted, we want to take you the behind-the-scenes of allure agency high-end architectural photographers' work and show you the before and after and how the magic really happens.

The Secrets Behind Architectural Photographer Photos

Before we jump behind the scenes it’s important to understand the before and after.

You often look at high-end hotels, retail stores, and luxury homes and say, well it looks like 20,000,000, I didn’t expect anything else, but the fact is, our cameras don’t care if it’s 100k or 100mil space.

There are so many elements in a space that require attention to detail, like light, exterior, interior, different finishes, colors, symmetry, light colors, shiny martial, glass windows, and many more.

While we say one picture is worth 1,000 words, it’s not the case in commercial photography and the expectations of a photography agency when producing advertising material.


Single Photo Vs Commercial Photo

Ok, so enough talk let’s see some pictures, but one second before you jump into it, it is crucial to understand what the before and after includes.

Before Picture

Professional single-exposure photo with the same professional gear as our commercial images., Expanding the limits of a single image with post-production to get the most of the in and out colors and light capabilities.

By itself, it looks great, and straight and it’s used as our base visual for the elevated work.

After Picture

As before, we create dozens of single-exposure pictures but this time we capture different elements (colors, light, exposures) to enhance the overall visual.

Our goal is to reflect the real color, mood, and feel by combining dozens of images into a single final polished and retouched stunning picture.



This commercial architecture image was captured for an ultra-luxury inspiration home collaboration with Range Rover.

Our goal was to show the overall lifestyle, which includes modern architecture, and the views from the community, and to connect the Range Rover to the experience.
