London Ontario Photographer
Hi there, my name is Scott and I am a professional architectural photographer for London and Southwestern Ontario.
I firmly believe that architectural photography chose me. It is the genre of photography that I continually gravitate towards and enjoy the most. I could try and work in another field, but architecture would pull me right back in some shape or form. See, I didn’t grow up with a camera in my hand or with the dream of being a photographer.
I’m told that I disclosed I wanted to be an architect.
If you use images to help sell or convey your architectural expertise, you need Scott Webb Photography, a local London Ontario architectural photographer, to help.
A Graduate of Architecture School at Ryerson University
Instead of being an architect, I use my architectural school background as a photographer for architects. I noticed that London Ontario architecture was getting a raw deal from existing photography that I could find (if I could even find any for some buildings). I didn’t understand this and I said enough. We need to show buildings and spaces in a way that attracts even more amazing people to London.
Trying to help move London forward, I help raise the bar of the photography of architecture and the city. I work with top architectural studios in London, but I also give away images of London for anyone to download and use for anything such as blogging, websites, social media, print. The quality of London imagery is definitely going up and the reach of these images is global as well.
London Ontario Photographers Everywhere
If you search for London Ontario Photographers, you get an almost endless result. It really is true, everyone is a photographer now. I’ve gotten lost trying to differentiate any of them from one and other when in need of one myself. Most photographers you run into are going to be generalists. This means they do all forms of photography. Which, isn’t necessarily a good thing to me.
I just couldn’t do that. I know I’m different. I hope you see that in the way I’ve created my website alone. As well, I’m a Ryerson Architecture School graduate and I know the architecture niche. It’s so natural and comes out in my photography.
With my drive to further distance myself from all the other London Ontario Photographers, I took to the chopping block.
To Dominate the Internet
Remember those London photos I give away? Well, I continue to contribute some photography explorations for everyone and anyone to download and use (find my Unsplash updates here).
I have created a special collection specifically for Free London Ontario Photos. I wish I could contribute more, but I’ve been so focused on client work. Hopefully a week off later in Spring will provide me with the time to capture imagery I can share freely.
My photos are everywhere, even the London ones. They have been used by Junos London, Facebook, Western University, and the list go on and on. It’s now near impossible to show all the locations my photos have been used now.
Or Dominate London?
I’m not out to dominate London as a photographer per-say. It’s really about Legacy. Not just legacy for me but for the excellence in creative work my clients do too. It’s when I see historic photos of London that I get the added motivation to have my photos be shown like this long after I’m gone. It’s also something on my mind at every job I do.
Get to Know Scott Even More
Let’s pull the curtain back a little more here. This is the ‘about page’ and you’re digging into it down here. I hope you’re still with me, because we may learn that we would be a great fit to work together. You never know.
Things I Dig
Supporting local and shopping local is important to me. I loved hitting up the Western Fair Market on a Saturday morning or grabbing new releases from Illbury + Goose. Their clothing has typically been my attire for photoshoots. I like to show my support.
As well, I love when local companies or bloggers are able to use some of my free London images to save some money and look good at the same time. I've seen many local websites benefit from images already.
