I thought this might be a good time to do a promo for an upcoming course at the SFU City Program:
 
How Photography Can Enhance the Professional Practice of Architecture, Urban Planning, and Design – March 22, 2013
$240 + HST = $268.80
SFU Vancouver
 
Photography can enhance proposals, provide more accurate site and context evaluation, clarify and improve all kinds of communications, reduce time and construction costs, record progress, assist post-occupancy surveys, and help win awards. This course provides a basic understanding of how people visually perceive the environment around them and illustrates how photography can improve your skills and final product.
 
 
Instructor: Richard Hulbert, award-winning and published architect, urban designer, and photographer. 
And to feature some of Rick’s pics from his site.  Today, City Form:
