about: Carel van der Walt

Carel heads the Monolith Media team. The 3D design experience of this creative photographer, lends very special qualities to the architectural photography produced by ourselves. He has a fine appreciation for architectural detail, symmetry and how light affects various aspects of the design elements, which gives that edge in aspects of making and composing technical photographs.

The acute awareness and detailed observations of living detail in the most austere concrete projections have elevated him as one of the upcoming architectural photographers in Europe.

Monolith specialise and accept commissions in creating ultra high definition panoramic and 360 degree photographs like the panoramic view of No 1 Leicester Sq. This 3.2 gig image is 48800 x 7200 pixels in size, non-interpolated at 300dpi photo quality.   view more panorama's
