So it’s 2008 now and we are working with David Archer Architects on various projects, but the real triumph was Chiltern Street Hotel. This was a collaboration with David’s preferred photographer Keith Collie who shot all the backplates as well as decent HDR images for image based lighting for each shot.
A whole series of I think eight images went into this successful planning application to turn an old fire station near to Baker Street into a hotel. David Archer always strives for the best results possible and he really pushed on this one! I am glad he did, the result was images I am still proud of today.
Take this one for example….here is a before and after.
The backplate was stitched from nine different images by Keith Collie and getting CG cameras to match this was a nightmare. With close involvement from David Archer we were able to get to it right to produce exactly what he wanted.
Here is the whole set of images.
