We caught one of the few nice evenings when we shot this beautiful penthouse for Jacky Levi and Jacob Krause. It was a little overcast but clear, so we were able to showcase the panoramic view. The interior was pretty nice too. Have a look here to see the writeup. And the price tag.

I have shot many homes in The Mark over the past couple of years, but none like this one. In fact, I have never seen a downtown location with its own private roof deck, complete with pool, hot tub and outdoor kitchen. There’s a 3100 square foot, three bedroom Robert Ledingham – designed home directly underneath as well. Ask Whitney Lewis if it’s still available, because you won’t see another one like in in quite a while.
This is for all those realtors who think they have to turn on every light in the house for a photoshoot. Sometimes things look better with the lights off. This luxury condo had no power when we shot it, so all the light was from the windows and my little tiny Canon flashes. We had a lot going for us, however: a cloudy day, a huge wall with north-facing windows that ran the length of the living space, mostly white walls, and some expert staging. The view over False Creek would make a great twilight shoot, but for that you do need lights. Morgan Duvernet can show you around this beautiful home.
This is a really nice two-level, two bedroom home overlooking the False Creek seawall. Completely renovated and packed with high end amenities. Sample photos below, and you can see our video here. Kelsie Struch can get you the details.
This townhouse in Fairview slopes is more vertical than horizontal, but the bold wall colours make it feel friendly and spacious. It doesn’t hurt that the owner has great taste in decor, too. There’s just enough furniture to be functional, leaving lots of space to move around in. Jacky Levi and Jacob Krause have this listing.
It would be hard to get any work done at this desk. You could spend all day watching the world go by. Find out more about this Yaletown condo by visiting Robert Crowe’s website.
If you are a regular visitor to Granville Island you will recognize this award-winning Arthur Erickson building. It’s hard to miss. The other day Grady Harris asked me to shoot the penthouse suite here. Not surprisingly, I agreed. Light was pouring in through floor to ceiling windows onto the dark wood paneling and polished concrete ceiling, making my job a lot more challenging. But with a little extra work I ended up with some memorable pictures. It’s places like this that remind me what a spectacular city Vancouver is.
I just shot this beautiful Yaletown condo for Sheri Stenson the other day. The private rooftop deck offers a view of the neighbourhood and False Creek. Inside you’ll find a gourmet kitchen, huge open plan living area, great views and tons of storage. contact Sheri for more information.
When you’re shooting a home with a 270 degree south facing view on a bright sunny day, it’s usually best to wait until dusk to break out your camera gear. I didn’t have that luxury the other day, so all I could do was fire up all of my flashes on full power and cross my fingers. The human eye can compensate for the difference in brightness between inside and outside, but cameras are not that sophisticated. At least, not yet. So I have to rely on either a lot of interior lighting, or Photoshop, or both. The extra effort pays off though, since the final result looks a lot it would look in real life.
