About Adam Butler

I have been an architecture and interiors photographer for over 25 years, photographing beautiful homes and buildings all over the world, and my images have been extensively published in books and in interiors magazines worldwide.

See my latest publication in AD Italia magazine – April 2023. See the magazine covers with my images.

I am based in London with my family, and am of Scottish/Italian descent. Whenever possible, I try to escape to a family home we have in the Aeolian island of Panarea.

I studied at the Courtauld Institute of Art, where I gained a degree in art history.

Visit the print shop on my other website adambutler.com. I also shoot panoramic cityscapes, as well as Mediterranean views and landscapes, and my images are in numerous private, corporate and local government collections worldwide. 

My use of natural lighting (with only occasional accenting with artificial lights) imparts a subtle luminosity and clarity to my images which has always been very well received.

I have worked with global companies, architects, interior designers, developers, building companies, specialist craftsmen, trade suppliers, restaurants, private members clubs as well as private people to document and record their houses or building projects.

My interiors and architectural photography has been featured in many books and many of the leading interiors magazines all over the world, as well as appearing on dozens of their covers. The include AD Italia, Elle Decoration, Homes and Gardens, Casa Vogue, Spazio Casa, Diseño Interior, La Mia Casa, Ville e Casali, and dozens more.

I am available for commissions in the UK, Italy and Europe.

More information on commissioning me to photograph your project.

I have an extensive database of photographs, including London cityscapes, views of Panarea and the Aeolian Islands, various landscapes and other images, and these are all available to be licensed for any sort of commercial, editorial, or advertising use. They are not licensed anywhere else.

For over 10 years I have also been running  interiors and architectural photography courses. These have proven to be very popular, and I have taught hundreds of students. This course is open to anyone of any level* and is essential to improve technical and artistic photography skills, which will help you ultimately to make magnificent images, which after all is what interiors and architectural photography is all about.
*a basic knowledge of photography skills and digital editing is important however

Panarea book

A book of my photographs of Panarea was published in 1998 by Iditella Press, and some copies are still available. A new book of that most beautiful of islands is currently in (long-term) planning….

The Art Book, Phaidon Press, 1994
I wrote most of the text for this book.
