David Cardelús

Architectural Photographer

Barcelona, Spain
An architectural photographer since 1991, my speciality is photographing contemporary architecture works to provide my clients with compelling unique images that are both original aesthetic objects and dedicated communication tools.

My photographs have been praised as having a distinctive graphical plasticity that successfully serves my primary goal of gaining attention and public exposure for my clients' architectural works on every possible digital and printed media.

A Fine Arts college background has developed in me a particular taste for light, form and color and a discerning eye for serene, minimalist compositions that I devote to get the best from the combined vision of both the architect and the photographer.

I do carefully plan, shot and process all my photographs myself by using state of the art digital technologies.

Based in Barcelona, I travel wherever my assignments require me to fly.
