The first picture in my series of architectural photography images is this picture of Dorchester Fire Station

Dorchester Fire Station

On my new architectural photographer page I write the following about this image.

“This is a picture of the Dorchester Fire Station and Dorset Fire and Rescue Service (since merged with Wiltshire to form Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue) HQ building at the point of completion of the works.

This site is in Poundbury on the outskirts of Dorchester, which is a unique development on land owned by the Duchy of Cornwall. And a fascinating place to take architectural photographs.

I was commissioned by the architect Calder Peel to photograph the completed buildings, constructed by Morgan Sindall.

One thing about this image. This is pretty much a straight, clean, technically correct architectural image.

Apart from the tarmac, which was scarred all over the place – which is why I darkened it to hide all that horribleness which also made the front façade stand out even more!”

Yes. Scarred old tarmac. This is often a problem. You get a shiny new development but the tarmac immediately surrrounding all that new loveliness is often a complete mess. I quite often have to do something creative in Photoshop to deal with this issue.
