Jim Stephenson is a contemporary photographer concerned with the documentation of architecture, interiors and the built environment.
With a lifelong love of architecture, Jim trained as an architectural technologist and after graduation he worked in the industry for almost ten years, on both sides of the Atlantic. During this time he began to take photographs for architectural practices, eventually setting down his pen to photograph buildings full time.
His background allows him to converse meaningfully with his clients; he understands the architect’s intent and confidently conveys this in his photography. His personal passion for the industry is also evident in his work; he cares deeply about architecture and his own relationship with the built environment.
In the past few years, Jim has introduced a documentary-style approach to some areas of his work, studying and depicting how people interact with buildings and spaces. He has also started working with film makers to produce short films of architectural projects for clients.
