In Conversation with Architectural Photographer And Videographer Pete VonDeLinde

We're introducing a new content type to the blog and that is our conversation series where we sit down with storytellers in our industry to hear their own story. How they got started. How they honed their craft. What excites them and scares them about the industry. We hope you enjoy these glimpses into their careers and these personal conversations as much as we do!

Two League of Architectural Filmmakers and Storytellers' founding members, Pete VonDeLinde and Ian Harris sit down to discuss Pete's evolution from studying to become a pilot, to architecture student, to a professional photographer and videographer.
