Michael MurazOur guest for this week, Michael Muraz, is an award-winning commercial and fine art architecture photographer based in Toronto, Canada. Originally an engineer, Michael now works with clients like architects and interior designers, documenting buildings and spaces. When he’s not shooting for commercial clients, he’s traveling to photograph architecture and cityscapes around the world. Michael is always looking for the perfect shot, showcasing some of the most beautiful buildings and skylines in the world.

Michael was born in France, in the heart of old Europe, which has an immense heritage of ancient architecture, yet he has a passion for modern architecture and recently moved to Toronto. We were wondering whether he was terminally bored with medieval castles, so we had to ask him.

Our question lead to a conversation about architectural photography, leaving a full time job to pursue a career in commercial photography, his favorite cities to shoot in, how to handle issues of copyright when photographing famous buildings, and more.

Duration 41m 14s.
