Many expert architecture Photographers in Philadelphia, just like myself, have gained experience both in Philadelphia and in varying locations around the world. For my part, I have worked in many countries on 6 continents and spent quite a bit time in the regions of the Middle East, Africa and India. The above photo attests to that. It shows an impressively decorated wall in the luxurious Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara in the Empty Quarter (formally known as Rub’ al Khali) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The Empty Quarter is the world’s largest uninterrupted sand desert, a unique place in which to find a resort like Qasr Al Sarab. The resort features ultra-modern facilities in palatial-style villas. As the items selected for display on the wall show, the hotel also pays homage to the indigenous desert culture and traditions which have existed and evolved in the region for thousands of years. The opportunity to photograph in locations such as this and to interact with the populations that call these areas home, has truly influenced the work that I do as one of the professional architecture Photographers in Philadelphia. The city was founded in 1682 by English Quaker William Penn and has grown to become the largest city within the state of Pennsylvania.Architecture within the city ranges from beautifully preserved historic buildings to an increasing number of modern-styled skyscrapers. Many buildings in the city serve as protected landmarks with several of those being churches, such as the Gloria Dei (Old Swedes') Church built in 1700. There is also Library Hall, completed in 1790 but demolished in 1887 and later reconstructed (in 1959) by the American Philosophical Society. Skyscrapers started to dot the city’s skyline in the early 1900’s with large glass and granite skyscrapers coming along toward the end of the century.
