Patrick Bingham-Hall is an architectural photographer, available for commissions worldwide. He is also an architectural writer and the editor of Pesaro Publishing, which specialises in architecture and design monographs.
He switched to architectural photography in the early 1980s, and travelled the world to study architectural history and to photograph classic buildings. Many of these photographs were included in his first (self-published) book Monumental Irony. In the 1990s he took the photographs for many books on Australian architecture, and was selected as editor of the book that documented the architecture for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. He also wrote Austral Eden, an idiosyncratic history of Australian architecture, and contributed articles to magazines in Australia and England. In 1999, he formed his own publishing company, Pesaro Publishing, which was to publish many books on Australian architecture within a few years. Bingham-Hall was usually editor and photographer. Most of his early books for Pesaro were done in collaboration with Philip Goad, an architectural writer and academic from Melbourne. After publishing Architecture Bali in 2000, Bingham-Hall decided to expand his publishing into Asia, while continuing to produce books on Australian architecture. He also writes many of the books himself, particularly on tropical architecture in Asia. He is the author of monographs on WOHA Architects, Guz Architects, Peter Stutchbury, Colin K. Okashimo, K2LD Architects, Cicada Landscape Architects, LOOK Architects, and a book on houses in the Asia-Pacific region.
