Shortlist revealed – The Photographer – Residential

  •   29 June 2023

As designers and architects conceive wonderful residences for their clients, we seldom have the opportunity to personally visit such houses. In this category, the residential photographer is key to bringing the vision of a home alive and can take us all on a journey of discovery.

At this year’s INDE.Awards, a new category, The Photographer – Residential, pays tribute to those whose primary focus is the realm of residential photography. Criteria for entry was to portray all aspects of a home and tell the story of its architecture and design through a series of images. This is storytelling at its best, where the photographer interprets the architect or designer’s intention but also reflects their own creativity, through the lens.

Partner of The Photographer – Residential is Image Makers Association Australia, an organisation that represents and supports professional and emerging photographers through education and industry connection. Recently formed, Image Makers Association Australia has grown exponentially and provides advice and mentorships as well as a strong voice for its members.
