Architectural Photography Leeds – 1 Canal Place, Leeds city centre

Architectural Photography Leeds – interiors photographer Leedsphotographers Yorkshire

1 Canal Place has benefitted from extensive repair and refurbishment to create a modern office building from an 18th century warehouse. It’s located on the Leeds Liverpool Canal in central Leeds.  The conversion was designed by Nick Brown Architects of Leeds.

The building was challenging to photograph from the front due to it’s proximity to the main A58 road. Inside, it was much lighter than I expected.  There’s a balcony off the top floor giving views across the city.

If you need to commission architectural photography in Yorkshire please get in touch. I’m a full time photographer covering the UK.

1 Canal Place is on the A58, almost directly opposite the well known landmark, Leeds Commercial Van Hire near Armley Gyratory.

Thanks to the Facebook group, Secret Leeds 2, I’ve been able to discover more information about this building.  It appears on the 1901 Leeds Insurance map as 14 Armley Road “Fodder Mill & Stores.”  At that time Canal Place was the next small street which has now disappeared.

In 1980 it was Smith and Nelson Ltd., billiard table manufacturers. It appears on a photo on the Leodis website here.

In the 1990’s it was a software company office. You can view a 1999 shot of the same building here on Leodis.

Ollievision is recommended wedding photographer at The Britannia Hotel Leeds Bradford in Bramhope, Yorkshire.  This post is to enable couples to see the venue and how it can be laid out for weddings.  The hotel function suites have been refurbished recently so I took these photos to show what it looks like now.

If you’re considering the Britannia as your wedding venue please also read the other blog post about Bramhope Puritan Chapel, which is included in their packages if desired.

The main function suite has a large oblong room that can be divided in half to suit the size of the event.

Architectural Photographers Wakefield – Unity Works & Unity Hall Wakefield

Architectural Photographers Wakefield – Yorkshire photographersinteriors photography

Unity Works began life as Unity House and is Grade 2 Listed, built in sections between 1867 and 1908.  It was originally shops, offices and a meeting hall for Wakefield Industrial Co-operative Society.  Today it has a new lease of life as offices and meeting rooms with the grand hall being used as a live entertainment venue.

Award winning architects, Nick Brown Architects of Leeds, were commissioned to transform the very run down property into a viable venue.  As much as possible of the interior decor has been retained.  The tiled lower walls are complemented by pure white walls with the large mosaic floors taking pride of place in the design.

When I arrived at Unity Works I discovered that it’s an extremely difficult building to photograph! It’s on a main junction in Wakefield city centre with traffic light & lamp post columns appearing from every angle.

If you are searching for an architectural or interiors photographer please get in touch.  I photograph buildings all over Yorkshire. You can email me via the contact page or call me on 0787 292 4103.

Architectural Photographers Yorkshire – Wood Hall, Harewood for Nick Brown Architects

Architectural Photographers Yorkshire – property photography Yorkshire – Leeds architectural photographers

My work as a Yorkshire architectural photographer takes me to some beautiful buildings. Wood Hall on the Harewood estate is a Grade 2 listed stone built property.  It was fully renovated and refurbished in 2014 after standing empty for many years.  Award winning Yorkshire practice, Nick Brown Architects, were commissioned to bring the building back into use and convert it into a dental surgery.

Wood Hall is now occupied by Dental Excellence, a private dental practice.  Wood Hall was originally built as the vicarage for All Saints Church in the 18th Century.  It was designed by leading architect John Carr who also designed Harewood House and Wood Hall at Wetherby.

If you are looking for an experienced architectural and interiors photographer to produce images for marketing and display please get in touch with me via the contact page. Professional photography can help you show your work and your business off to potential clients.

Photographer Selby Abbey – photographs of the beautiful Abbey at Selby, Yorkshire

Photographer Selby Abbey – wedding photographers Selby – wedding photography Yorkshire

Photographer Selby Abbey, wedding photographer Selby, selby abbey photosI visited Selby in Yorkshire to photograph The Wedding Shop which is just next to the Abbey.  After Ollie (aged 12) had eaten most of the sweets off their candy cart display I dragged him over the road to see the fabulous Selby Abbey.  Despite spending my whole life in Leeds, Selby Abbey is somewhere that I don’t remember visiting before.

Selby Abbey was founded in 1069 by Benedictine monks.  It has suffered several devastating fires and collapses over the centuries but is in excellent condition today, thanks to major refurbishments during the years from 1907-1914.  The Abbey survives today as a functioning church – it is not a ruin like many other abbeys of its era.

If you’re looking for a photographer for your wedding at Selby Abbey please get in touch to discuss the options available.  I’m a full time professional photographer based in Yorkshire and work all over the UK.
