Alexander Bogorodskiy

Born and raised in Russia, I am an architectural photographer based in the magnificent city of Porto, Portugal.

I have to say, the way I got to discovering my passion was everything but conventional. My first job in Portugal was in a boutique Real Estate agency in a very chic area of Algarve. When I started I had zero experience in selling properties, but I managed to bring value to the company with my knowledge in photography. It did not take too long for me to realize that I was getting more and more captivated by the process of shooting beautifully designed homes and shortly after I quit the company to pursue a career of a photographer.

In my work I put emphasis on creating highly accurate architectural images, without manipulating natural light or shadows, while also leaving myself a room for creativity. I believe that the purpose of this craft is not only to document the architect’s creation, but also to show the scale, the meaning and aesthetics of the project.

I also believe that good architecture must be shared. So in my practice I devote my time and resources to helping architects distribute their projects on specialized websites and print publications.

At the moment I find myself photographing extensively across Portugal, but also making myself available for assignments worldwide.
