studio millspace
Sara & Lucas work together as a team on architectural photography projects, from client meetings, site visits, test-shoots, discussion of shots to photo selection, adjustment and editorials. 

It is very important to us to get to know the building in its particular location / context - to observe the effect of natural light throughout the day, to understand the design intents of the architect and to consider the spatial / programmatic relationship to its users.
Studio Millspace was founded by Lucas K. Doolan and Chia-Lin Sara Lee specialising in the field of architectural photography.  The studio was first established in Auckland, New Zealand in 2012, and is currently based in Taiwan.   

Architectural photography work by Studio Millspace looks to discover captivating perceptions in each project, seeking to translate unique qualities between spaces, project relationships to site, people and the surrounding context into intriguing photographs that embody the architectural experience.

Studio Millspace intends to represent architecture projects in its most natural conditions - creating timeless and considered architectural imagery that enrich over time.
