heriot watt

brief

I was commissioned by ADP Architects to photograph the refurbished James Watt Centre on the main Heriot Watt University campus in Riccarton, Edinburgh. The brief was to illustrate the new internal reconfiguration of existing spaces with the use of a new design including partitions, ceilings, floor finishes & fixed bespoke furniture.

execution

I used long shutter speeds to depict movement and show the flow of students and staff through the various spaces. I captured images that looked unposed and natural that also reflected the designers use of natural materials and a subtle colour palette. I aimed to get the timings just right to show the spaces in use but not overcrowded.

The use of panoramic images showcases the size and scale of the centre that includes 2 lecture theatres and 175 study spaces.

outcome

I supplied images for ADP architects to use for social media, in publications and on their website.
