The challenges of taking perfect bathroom photos are dealing with the mirrors, the reflective surfaces, the lighting of the room for photographing and avoiding distortions from a wide angle lens. Make the baths beautiful too.
As an architectural photographer shooting in Los Angeles and throughout California, I am often called to photograph the “impossible” by shooting in these cramped and reflective spaces. My trade secret here is experience and careful attention to the details.
I am hired to photograph bathrooms for manufacturers, tile and stone vendors and interior designers. The photos you see here were photographed by David Duncan Livingston. I styled and art directed these shots as well, and hold the copyright.
Inspiring bathroom design combines great style and functionality. Here I have selected a number of examples of recent bathrooms. A design color trend I am seeing for 2015 is the use of soft grays, creams and whites. The bath pattern designs I am seeing are Moroccan Arabesque, Celtic Herringbone and more traditional Italianate motifs.
Hundreds of my bath photos have been published nationally; and more recently for many client’s Houzz pages. Conveying the design showing the mix of materials and the space plan are key to a well photographed bathroom. Photo styling for bathrooms is very important too. Styling elements should be simple and not overwhelm the shot.
