Easily our largest project to date, regardless of what kind of photography it involves, was the documenting and photographing of the Cornerstone Centre at St Johns Church in Edinburgh.
A few years ago St Johns secured several million pounds in funding with the plan to refurbish their dated and quite frankly ugly old hall. The refurbishment would involve demolishing the old hall and ripping out the shops and cafes that were in the basement, rebuilding the foundations and then building new hall spaces, new shops, a new cafe and office spaces within the old space.
And what an enormous great-looking change. This was a really amazing project as every couple weeks over the space of a couple years we would go in with a camera, setup in roughly 10 of the same spots, take the same photograph and and in the end we produced a timelapse.
The build was absolutely fascinating and it was mega interesting seeing things they found in the basement including old coffins, pipes that weren’t in the plans and various other things.
As well as the photos above, which are of the final build, we also built them a website which can be viewed here: Cornerstone Centre
The website shows the various stages of development and what it can offer. Easily the most fun project we’ve done to date and we would love to do more projects like this.
