This program presentation on architectural photography addresses composition, site/architectural relationships, elements/details, and themes as they relate to concepts and strategies. Playful juxtapositions are explored revealing the potential for creative images. In turn, the essentials of camera equipment, settings, and techniques are discussed. This program is for anyone interested in photographing the rich diversity that is inherent within architectural themes. As both an architect and a photographer, George Fellner provides his unique perspective on architectural photography and shares his strategies, case studies, and personal experiences.
Fine art photographer and architect, George Fellner, is committed to a dual life-path involving visual discovery and design, relating to both the natural and built environments. Inspired by his travels as well as his in-depth involvement with photo essays, George’s photographic subjects include landscape, architecture, travel, portrait, and objects of nature. The focus of George’s present work, Imaginary Realms, reveals an endless search for the abstractions of reality, involving the macro photography of stones and crystals. Influenced by the 19th and 20th century art movements of Impressionism, Abstract Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism, he is engaged in an ongoing exploration of the imagination.
Regarding publications, George’s photographs have been presented in journals, magazines, books, and travel guides. Nature Genetics, an international science journal, has featured three of his photographs for their front covers. INK Publications magazine featured the article Photographer George Fellner: Architect for Body and Spirit with an in-depth description of his art and methodology for Imaginary Realms. In addition, George’s photographs of some of his architectural designs have been published in a series of three books on architecture by E. Ashley Rooney. Furthermore, her book: Artist’ Homes and Studios features George’s studio space design and photographs from his Imaginary Realms series. He recently published his first book Imaginary Realms: The Visual Language of Stones and Crystals.

He has also exhibited in solo shows at EO Art Lab Gallery and Mercy Center’s Mary C. Daly Art Gallery.
