    Norman McGrath's "Photographing Buildings Inside and Out" is the classic text on film-based architectural photography. The 2nd edition shows the dawning of the digital age.... that part is now long obsolete. I don't know of anything published on digital architecture shooting- I learned that by doing it and assisting- but I don't imagine that you're interested in that, if you're asking on this forum.

    Hi Mark,

    I'm interested in both shooting with film & digital.
    I started shooting architecture with my view camera & am now interested in doing more & getting better & more informed.
    I guess a workshop would be a good option to get a more up to date perspective.

    Thanks,

    Serge

    "Julius Shulman Los Angeles" and "Modern Architecture Photography by Ezra Stoller" are in my collection. Also "Architect of Photography by Balthazar Korab" and any of the books by Timothy Hursley. These are not "how to" books but photography of architecture.

    +1 The only book you'll need. This is a how to book, some of the others listed are not.

    Took Norman's workshop some 30 years ago, it was great. Did architectural photography for a while, then I got tired of being a finance company for architects.

    Issues of Architectural Digest magazine. Used images from this magazine when I was teaching View Camera Photography.
