The creation of Architecture time-lapses (timelapses) combines two passions – architectural photography and video editing and production. An architectural photographers knowledge of light and composition can be combined with a video producers sense of rhythm and editing. Like most things video-related, time-lapses are enormously time-consuming to create. Like many things video-related, they are very satisfying to complete.

Architectural time-lapses are a superlative way to show the path of the sun across the facade of a building, the way a building changes in the light as it gets dark or as the sun comes up, and the way people use and interact with a building.

Here are a couple of architectural time-lapses I have made recently. The first is one commissioned by the BBC to celebrate the opening and inhabitation of its incredible new headquarters in Portland Place London:
