Studio Huger Vienna architecture photographers

Stephan Huger, born and living in Vienna, is an international multi award-winning photographer specialising in architectural and hotel photography.

He uses his vast experience of nearly 30 years behind the camera and applies his attention to detail at all stages of a project, from pre-planning to the shoot itself and meticulous post-production. Every resulting image is crisp, light and colour balanced, and naturalistic in style.

Stephan's architectural pictures reflect the ambitions and achievements of the architects, but in a way that viewers can also recognise the pronounced hand of a photo artist. Stephan believes that this is what makes 'the art' of architectural photography, that the authors of both the given subject and the way it has been represented are equally identifiable.
