I have an iPad app that tells me where the sun and moon are at in given location and day. Using this app - and a reliable weather forecast - I was able to determine the optimal time of day for the photos. The daylight photos were taken around 7 pm and it took me about an hour. Then hung around for the sun to set and the lights to come on for the evening photos. Then I saddled up and hit the road for home. A late night, but such is the life of an architectural photographer.

And then there are other times; when someone who's along to facilitate the shoot suggests that a photo might be in order. This photo comes from such a request.
I was on assignment at the Edmonton Federal Building when Rennie - that's him on the right - suggested that a quick shot of him and his mates would be a good idea. I almost always have my 24-70 f/2.8 lens with me so I grabbed it and set the lads up against this Tyndall stone wall. I told them I wanted serious expressions with loads of attitude. They came through in spades.
I don't know the fellow in the centre at all, but Rennie and Dave (on the left) and I have known one another for a while. If you want to know what top class professional builders look like, here's your chance for a good look.
