Announcing our winners of the Fourwalls Photo of the Year Competition 2022

You may have read our blog last year  about the winners of our Fourwalls in-house photography competition for 2021. Every month, our photography team submits their favourite photographs to our discerning directors, who judge the best ones (first place and two runners up) based on composition, lighting, creativity and a whole host of other factors. At the end of the year, each photo from the eleven previous months is entered into a highly anticipated finale and the winner is crowned Photo of the Year in December.

For 2022, the competition was as tight as ever. Everyone from the company gets a chance to anonymously cast their vote and it’s often very difficult each month to choose the best – the standard is so high. We love seeing all the photos in post-production, but with so many to choose from many end up on the cutting room floor (so to speak) as there are only so many which can be used by agents in the marketing of each home.

This year, our creative team also took the time to make a digital book of all the photos of the month, compiling the very best shots into a stunning visual memento of 2022. You can have a flick through of the book below.

Without further ado, here are the top photos from the 2022 competition.

January

Chloe’s stunningly symmetrical wine display certainly made Dry January feel a little bit harder last year

February

Adam found a great play on light and shadow in this modern barn conversion

March

Spring had certainly sprung in time for Lizzie’s gorgeous blossom shot, our March winner

April

The theme of April was flowers, which was won by Chloe with this lovely muted still life

May

May’s competition was won by Sofia with this magnificent coastal shot on a fine weather day

June

Ben’s photo for June of this patio seating area made us impatient for long, hot summer days

July

What luxury! Pete swooped into first place with this impressive action shot in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire which was also crowned Photo of the Year

August

August’s theme was ‘reflections’, which was admirably won by Billy with this impressive staircase snap

September

Josh got everyone saying ‘ahhhh!’ with this cute pup, a worthy winner for September

October

Ben’s submission for October fulfilled the theme of ‘light’ perfectly

November

Tom’s perfectly framed classical country house swept the board in November

And the winner is...

Our 2023 competition is already underway and the company will soon be voting for the best photograph of January. We’ve made some changes to the rules this year so that everyone in the company can submit their own photos – perhaps we’ll see some budding Steve McCurrys or Anne Geddes in HR, finance or account management?

Each month has a theme, to help give some structure to the shots. Some of the themes for this year include minimalism, symmetry, pattern and texture, and shadows. We’re already looking forward to seeing the results!

Mental Health First Aid: Fourwalls Breaks Down the Stigma

The long-standing stigma around mental health means that many people have a limited understanding of what mental health is and how it can be affected. Mental health issues are not uncommon: in any one year approximately one in four people experience at least one diagnosable mental health issue, and it’s just as important to safeguard our mental wellbeing as it is to take care of our physical selves. While it is a legal requirement to have a physical first aider in every workplace, we are still a long way off seeing mental health treated in the same way.

A Day in the Life of a CGI Artist

At Floorplanz we use CGI artists to create architectural visuals in order to bring a property or new development to life. Marketing a home can be difficult, especially when there are so many options available; using innovative design gives a viable alternative to traditional photography, especially in the representation of new build homes. CGI artists can also produce a fly-round or walk-through of a property in order to increase its selling potential. We spent a day shadowing Sabrina Spellman, one of our in-house CGI artists, to get a feel for what really goes on in a typical day.

Why You Should Consider Dusk Photography

Though the nights are (finally) getting lighter, the early sunsets make the start of the year ideal for dusk photography. The low winter light creates a beautifully ethereal quality and the pre-5pm sunset means convenient shooting times for both clients and photographers.

With so many properties on the market and professional photography now commonplace, it’s a job to make listings stand out – this is the perfect example of when dusk and night photography can be beneficial.

We asked some of our photography experts in the office to answer some questions about this service: Tom Hancock, our Head of Creative, and John Williams, our Head of Photography.
