The world of architecture is one of the most interesting subjects for photography. With its complex forms, intricate designs, and sophisticated structures, only a trained pair of eyes and creative approaches can capture the true essence of a building. A photographer should not just be able to take a snapshot of its facade, but also the narrative of its history, culture, and purpose. It is their task to reveal the unique story of each building by capturing its soul and expressing it into a work of art.
Follow these Thai architectural photographers to indulge in their storytelling!

Having been interested in architecture since a very young age, Weerapon was drawn to photographing buildings. With extensive knowledge in both fields, this Thai photographer has a keen eye for capturing commercial and residential architecture from unique perspectives. He emphasises on the interplay of light, colours and space, which sets his work apart from others in this field.
To me, though, his passion, specifically for modernist architecture, sets HIM apart from any other architectural photographer. It led him to start a project called Foto_MoMo, a platform for architecture enthusiasts to explore and discover new inspiration. He aims to create a database of modern architecture photography by documenting the intricate details and unique features of modern structures in Thailand. What a dedication, right?

Unlike Weerapon who focuses solely on buildings, Kan is an urban photographer that centres his attention upon expressing the feelings surrounding it. The urban surroundings. A lot of his work features the rush and the buzz of the city, all including its architectures.
But not just that, this talented photographer also has a knack for photographing homes and interior designs. Although he is known for his dark yet vibrant images, his interpretation of these types of photos are nothing short of fresh and stunning.

Specialising in photographing architecture, interior and real estate, Soft is one of Thailand’s sought-after aspiring architectural photographers. With less than a thousand followers, his works are incredibly impressive and deserve wider recognition.
One of the notable aspects of his photos is his willingness to incorporate human subjects. It is captivating, considering most architectural photographers heavily emphasise on buildings and completely disregard the human elements that actually bring life to the spaces.
