Decades of experience can lead to certain perks in the world of photography (oh, tremendous talent doesn’t hurt, either).  Just ask architectural photographer Tim Street-Porter. He has secured something many photographers dream of: creative control.

While working on his upcoming book, “Rooms to Inspire in the City: Stylish Interiors for Urban Living” (Rizzoli 2010), with his wife, writer Annie Kelly, Street-Porter had complete editorial freedom. “We had only two meetings during the entire project, one with our editor, and the other with the freelance designer. We chose all the locations, and gave all the images that we liked to the designer.”
