My DIY vs. PRO gallery is a series of architectural photography examples demonstrating the value of professional architectural photography versus the do-it-yourself (DIY) approach. Photographs, as we all know, are worth a 1,000 words, and these images speak for themselves, with each image side-by-side revealing a different example of DIY vs. PRO.
Each example highlights a distinctive element or combination of elements, such as the importance of composition, perspective control, point of view, or lighting — whether it’s time of day, orientation, or time of year. Strong images use them collectively to visually communicate a successful project across print and digital media.
In this series you will immediately see the finer visual points and powerful results of working with an architectural photographer. Through my growing gallery of comparison photos, I emphasize distinctive differences of DIY vs. PRO when a do-it-yourself is placed directly next to a professional image.
