This beautiful Osler Street residence is one of the largest homes I have ever shot. Over 8200 square feet of living space on four levels, surrounded by almost a third of an acre of impeccably manicured gardens. Fortunately, the recent renovations included some pretty decent lighting throughout the house, so this twilight shoot went pretty smoothly. For more information, ask Vivian Li and Peter Saito.

I’ve been waiting months for this property to come onto the market. I first shot it last fall, and have taken two subsequent trips to photograph it in different lights. I won’t go into great detail about the home, since it has been well documented on this website. But I will say that this is one of the nicest homes I have ever shot, partly due to the owner insisting that we shoot it on an overcast day instead of a sunny one. The cloud-diffused sunlight drifted through the skylights and large windows beautifully, making my job much easier.

The twilight photo shoot was helped substantially with recessed lighting throughout the home, including some floor-mounted spotlights which pointed straight up to illuminate the ceiling. I also managed to direct the outdoor floodlights so that they lit up the pond and rock walls the way I wanted.

Point Grey Masterpiece

September 18, 2014

Hidden behind some strategically placed trees is this beautiful West Side home, on one of the best view streets in the city. Its floor to ceiling windows give you an unobstructed panorama of the North Shore mountains, downtown Vancouver, and Jericho Beach just down the hill. Sue and Sarah can fill you in with the details of this unique property.

Summer in Southlands

August 11, 2014

I have shot several properties in horse country over the years, and each one is a class by itself. Southlands is where you can build the home of your dreams, and not be confined by neighbours squeezing you from all sides. Throw in some waterfront, and the fact that you can be downtown or at the airport within 15 minutes, and you can understand the appeal.

This particular property includes a large carriage house, stable, swimming pool and an unobstructed view of the busy Fraser River. And an eight-figure price tag. Ask Judith Matheson for a tour of this unique property.

On a photo shoot the other day in Kerrisdale, I noticed two familiar-looking houses perched on blocks across the street. I remember shooting one of them a couple of years ago when it was in its original location. They were hard to forget, as they were mirror-image houses built beside each other, sharing one driveway.

Two Dorothies

The two homes in their new location on West 41st.

They had recently been purchased by a developer, who was going to tear them down, until a number of heritage-minded residents managed to save them. There’s an interesting story behind them which you can read here. They were definitely worth saving as you can see from the images below, taken in their original setting.

  • Kitsilano Penthouse

    October 13, 2013

    This beautiful condo at 6th and Burrard is about as photogenic as you can get. Soaring ceilings, huge windows and a cloudy sky rendered my small flashes useless, and almost unnecessary. I’m glad it wasn’t a bright sunny day. This shoot would have taken much longer and would not have turned out as well as it did. Sue and Sarah can fill you in on the details of this listing.
