No location shoot in Birmingham would be complete without a visit to the iconic Selfridges store. Completed in 2003 it was designed by Future Systems Architects and is covered in 15,000 spun aluminium discs on a background of Yves Klein Blue. An architectural landmark and mecca for photographers it now forms the background to my updated webstite.
London based Colin Streater specializes in adding life and atmosphere to his imagery of large architectural venues, corporate interiors and the urban landscape by adding a human element, making the places he photographs look more aspirational and desirable than standard architectural photography.
Shooting with the latest digital technology, he provides a full professional service at all stages of the project, including the ability to do extensive post-production work.
Clients enjoy the relaxed ambience of his shoots and describe his work as clean, airy and friendly. This is partly a result of his distinctive approach to the spaces he photographs but also his attention to detail and the human context he adds.
For his personal work Colin takes a step away from the human perspective and studies the way humans interact with, adapt to and mould themselves onto the planet. Large scale panoramas taken from unusual perspectives show this relationship and how despite humanity's best efforts it is still totally controlled by the planet's characteristics.
