Jason Mann Photography

Architectural Photography Specialist


As an architectural photographer it is important that I portray the client’s vision as they are entrusting their concepts and design to me. I always encourage an initial consultation with my client to discuss the inspiration and ideas behind the design as well as photographic styles to ensure that this vision is delivered.

When photographing a site I endeavour to capture both the holistic and the intricate details of the build. I love challenging myself and the status quo by looking for opportunities to portray the project in a unique and compelling way. The time of day, weather, colour, detail, form, function, and the surrounding environment are all carefully considered to best compliment the project and enhance the imagery.

I established Jason Mann Photography in 2010 while I was undertaking my Photographic Design degree at Massey University. I graduated Massey University with First Class Honours and as a Massey Scholar. I knew from the start that architecture photography was my passion and I worked from the outset to master the specialised techniques and processes required.

Initially I worked alongside a few key Wellington businesses, finding out what was important to them and developing methods to realise this in my work. This has led to me working with some of the most prominent architects in New Zealand, including shoots in preparation for the NZIA Awards, ADNZ AwardsResene Colour Awards & Best Awards. I regularly have work featured in architectural publications such as Architecture New ZealandInteriors Magazine  and Landscape Architecture NZ
