Indoor Parking

June 19, 2013

You would never guess that this sleek, modern beauty is tucked away into a quiet corner of the British Properties. Designed by West Vancouver architect Trevor Euley, the open plan home is full of toys for boys: a swimming pool, putting green, mechanic’s garage, covered outdoor living area, and a motorcycle in the front entry. Elizabeth McQueen can give you a guided tour.

    This impressive Southlands estate didn’t last long on the market. Over 31,000 square feet in the middle of horse country. Teak hardwood floors span the huge open plan interior, and of course, the tennis court and indoor pool. Realtor Patrick Weeks sold it a couple of days after I sent him the photos. Coincidence?

    Border shooting

    February 28, 2013

    The good folks at Lighthouse Construction asked me to shoot this enormous Tsawwassen mansion the other day. I brought Leo from Lionlight Photography with me because we had a lot of ground to cover in one day. For once the weather cooperated, as the sun came out just enough for us to get some great outside shots, but not enough to cause us any problems inside. The hardest part about this assignment was deciding what to shoot and where to position the camera. We had so many great angles and lots of open space for our lights and gear, so no excuses this time. Once again the Lighthouse gang impressed us with the quality of their work. Here are a few of the images from that day. Lighthouse ConstructionLighthouse ConstructionJohn Bentley Photographer

    Caulfeild Custom Home

    January 18, 2013

    When you walk in the front door of this beautiful Caulfeild home, you can stand in the middle of the two-storey high foyer and see into every room on the main floor. The layout is completely open, yet every room feels private and comfortable. Master bedroom on the main floor makes sense. Great neighbourhood, and a view from the back yard. Interested? Talk to Eric Christiansen.

    University Class

    August 22, 2012

    This UBC area luxury home is without a doubt one of the finest homes I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. This Georgy Award winner was surprisingly easy to shoot. The white walls, high ceilings, and large windows allow daylight to pour into every corner of this 9900 square foot mansion, so I didn’t need a lot of extra lights. And the rooms were big enough that I could pick my angles with ease and not have to worry about backing all the way against a wall to make the rooms look big. Enjoy the photos. You can see the whole set here, as well as a video that we shot at the same time. Or contact Michael Lipnitsky for a showing.

    Back in February I spent a couple of days taking pictures of Shannon Station, a group of luxury condos in the heart of Kerrisdale. At the time there was still a lot of construction going on, and the suites were barely finished, let alone furnished. This week I was asked to go back and shoot a couple of units which have been staged in preparation for a big marketing push by Judith Matheson in September. Here’s a sneak peek:

    We put this shoot off for several days waiting for sunny weather, but the best we could do in the time frame we had was a day of no rain. So although the late afternoon sun wasn’t basking the city in a golden glow as I had hoped, we did manage to get some amazing images of this penthouse suite in Vancouver’s newest landmark, Jameson House. It is the first North American residential project designed by renowned architects Foster + Partners, and features stone floors, floor to ceiling windows, and Canada’s first automated parking garage. This top floor suite also boasts an enormous deck with unobstructed views of the city. Monique Badun can fill you in on the details.

    I’m on a boat

    March 25, 2012

    I don’t mind working on a sunny Saturday when there’s a boat ride involved. An Eagle Island resident gave me a lift so I could get a waters-eye view of this home for Jacquie Swaisland. Oh yeah, in case you were wondering, the house is going for $11 million.

    My ride. Everybody on the island has one of these.
