Architectural Photography Workshop

Join architecture photographers Mariella and Luis Ayala, AIA for this three-day workshop exploring the art and craft of capturing the built environment.  Mariella and Luis are sought out by architects across the state for their gift at showing a building in its best possible light. Their work is praised for bringing projects to life in a brilliant way, and for capturing the emotional qualities — the story, spirit, and soul — of the spaces they help to document. Their work has been published in numerous magazines and books and recently bestowed with the Texas Society of Architects Honors Award for photography. Visit their website at

They are offering a weekend photographic workshop starting Friday, August 2nd extending through Sunday, August 4th. The workshop will be a hands-on experience of photographing buildings and processing images digitally. This will be achieved with the use of "consumer" cameras and computers commonly owned by the non-professional photographer. A basic understanding of how to manually operate a camera is expected. Mariella and Luis will work one-on-one with participants photographing buildings and processing these images later.  Buildings to be announced at the workshop.

The registration is now open and will be limited to 14 participants. All the proceeds to benefit the AIA Houston ArCH rebuild campaign.

·         Friday, August 2nd: 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM (Gensler office, 711 Louisiana, suite 300)
·         Saturday, August 3rd: 1:00 PM – until dusk (Gensler office)
