Narrative photography is a process starting before the shooting day and continuing all the way through to the delivery of the final images. I'll either request a walk through with the client or ask them to submit pre-shots to help me get an idea of the space and learn about the design features the architect or designer found to be the most inspiring.
The pre-shots also reveal the angles the architect find to be the most interesting. Architects pre-visualize the aesthetic characteristics of a project during its conception right through to the drawings stage. During and after construction, they frequently check their favorite views confirm their original vision. I don't just copy the pre-shots the architects provides, I interpret them with the goal of creating an outside the box final image.
A drawing marked up with the client's preferred views also is helpful. From the client's drawing I can create a shot plan based on multiple factors including staging, time of day, and angle of the sun.
