On Assignment: Toronto Commercial Interiors Photography – Oakville Sales Centre for TACT Architecture & Design

One of the most stressful/challenging element as an architectural photographer is getting the “right” weather, especially when shooting exteriors. Things get even more complicated when planned shoot takes place in winter and weather becomes a little unpredictable, especially in Canada.

Having been commissioned by  TACT Design & Architecture to photograph the Trafalgar Landing – Great Gulf Sales Centre in Oakville, I really wanted to make sure I got as many opportunities as possible to get the best light. For that reason, I drove up to the shooting location half an hour before sunrise in order to be able to start shooting the exteriors at dawn and sunrise.

As you can see below, the result was pretty interesting, especially with the golden highlights of the rising sun on the reflective part of the building.

With the exteriors now handled (until sunset/dusk), I started working on the interiors of the sales centre, mixing detail shots with a 50mm lens and more general shots with my 24mm Tilt Shift lens.

Although the weather became cloudy late afternoon, I decided to hang tight and wait for sunset and dusk. I was really rewarded for staying as the sales centre Building really shines at the blue hour. I really love the balance between the grey, blue and orange tones.
