My work in Wallpaper


This image from the story in Wallpaper was the first shoot I did for Studiopuisto. It was meant to be just a site visit, but luckily I brought my camera along and they liked the images. Proof that shoots can take place in all kinds of weather as this was the greyest of days in the darkest half of the year.

Very excited about upcoming shoots for Studiopuisto. They have gone from strength to strength and have some incredible projects on the horizon, all to be photographed this year. Keep an eye out.

An amusing side note is the number of spin-off renders that the second shoot I did for them has produced. A school that specialises in visualisation has even featured it! Studiopuisto are considering putting together a page with all of the examples, and I think it is a great idea. Imitation is the highest form of flattery, for all of us!

For anyone interested in Architectural photography

This is a great link.

Can’t wait to add to the discussion. I’ve been invited to record a series of podcasts about architectural photography!

Look Inside a Selection of Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish Architecture Offices

I am very excited to share an article I have just published in Archdaily. Please click the link if you have ever been interested in seeing the inside of some of the world’s most celebrated architecture offices.

Shooting for Circo de la Luna in Southern Spain

If someone contacts you out of the blue and says I’d like to send you to shoot historic Mudejar architecture (which I love) in Andalucia (where I lived all too briefly) would you think it was too good to be true? I kind of did. But it wasn’t! I’ve just returned from there, had a great time and I think some rather good results!GranadaAlhambra Granada_MG_9285 Granada9166 Sevilla_MG_9966 Sevilla_MG_9748 Sevilla_MG_0224 (1) Sevilla_MG_0032 SevillaUntitled_Panorama4

28 offices in 28 days

I am writing from Oslo airport having completed the 3rd leg of this mission to shoot 28 offices in 28 days across 4 countries. So far I have shot Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen. And it has been an amazing experience.

My main takeaway is that architectural offices, in their many different manifestations, are great places to work. They are genuine creative hubs where teams of people young and old throw around ideas and apply their many skills to create projects that alter the built environment and as such impact the world we live in. Might sound utopic and naive, I guess. But I’ve just done a massive amount of participant observation and that is the only general conclusion I have reached.

Apart from that, cities in the Nordics are nice places to work. OK, nice is kind of a bad word. But the transparency / horizontal vs hierarchical thing seems to be real and not just lip service.

I can’t publish any photos yet because I need approval first from the architects themselves and then from the sites I will send images to. But be on the lookout in coming weeks here and on instagram.

Next stop: Helsinki. Where I shall finish the job. Still one or two openings if anyone knows a great architecture office there I’ve not heard of.

Capturing the Narrative of Two Realities 

Archmospheres_Marc Goodwin & Cecilia Galera


What dictates your choice of staging your portrayal of architecture and its elements? (in terms of angle,  inhabited or not, detail, light) 

To answer that question, I’d have to split myself in two, and then double one of those responses since the personal project I’ve sent you was done in collaboration with Cecilia Galera, a young photographic artist.

One answer would be that I seek to tell the story of a client’s building in the most favourable light, according to the demands of a brief and a few serendipitous moments that fall outside that brief but usually provide the best images. The role of a commercial photographer is largely to…

Event Space

The finish line is finally in site for the book about performance space design, which should be published by Routledge in 2016. Have a short list of images. Would love to know anyones favourites and overall impressions. These are just some of the general shots. None of the details have been chosen apart from a couple walls at the amazing Bouffes du Nord. In keeping with my obsession, they are ordered by colour.

International Acclaim

So pleased to see Finnish architecture is getting more attention in the press outside of Finland. Thrilled to be a small part of it with some of my photographs in each publication.

Atmographs are here!

After much hard work (especially on the part of the web designer) my new site is 90% complete.

I’d love it if you’d write with comments and, of course, to point out any glitches. It’s slow to load the first time due to the number of images. But after that should run smoothly.
