Roof Terrace Photography

Similarly to designing roof terrace projects, the art of photographing the results can be somewhat tricky to master, with windy conditions, perpetual skyglow and complex perspectives forming prevailing urban factors. Recceing for a roof terrace photo shoot entails considerable preparation, since coordinating the necessary maintenance, optimising suitable decoration and planning for perfect weather beforehand can be elaborate tasks indeed. A roof terrace backdrop is a predominant factor too in rooftop project photography, and while London's skyline evolves at extraordinary pace, the roof terrace images we continually produce convey an ever-changing architectural fabric, emerging city landmarks and absorbingly metamorphic panoramas.

Skyline Imagery

When a brand-new file transfer of images arrives after a roof terrace photo shoot, accompanied by sheer anticipation and excitement, it forms a truly unmatched moment – second only to the unravelling of a new book with some of that session's images prominently featured. While London's aerial topography is in constant flux, the roof terrace images which depict this picturesque, eclectic skyline epitomise not only the mastery of their image makers and the skilfulness of their landscape and garden designers, but also the cultural dichotomies, architectonic shift and terrace transformations which define, steer and reshape London's rooftop gardens.
