Steven Evans is a Toronto-based architectural photographer with 30 years of experience developing his craft. Both his fine art photography and his commercial work reveal a passion and deep understanding of the built world, capturing a sense of composition, an ability to capture the ephemeral qualities of light, and his attention to detail and craftsmanship in the technical production of each image are hallmarks of his work.
Evans’ freelance architectural photography is highly valued by architects, engineers, planners, designers, developers, and collectors. He has worked with many of Canada’s top firms and his images have been published in national and international magazines, and have been honoured with National Magazine Awards. His photography has been exhibited nationally and internationally and can be found in numerous public, private and corporate collections.
Commercial architectural photography involves a collaborative process through which the photographer’s skills and understanding mesh with each client’s unique needs, insights and knowledge of the subject. Applying his extensive experience and his intuitive understanding of what architects and designers do, Evans works closely with each client to translate into a two-dimensional representation the three-dimensional reality of architectural space and form. The result is photography that captures the spirit and the intentions behind the design. Each subject is approached with an eye to creating a well-considered photograph in itself, and to serve a wide range of purposes, including marketing, publications, websites, exhibitions, and books.
