Autowest Infiniti

July 28, 2011

Here are a few daytime shots of the Autowest Infiniti dealership. Sure makes a difference when the weather cooperates!

The folks at Richmond’s Autowest Group wanted some new images of their BMW and Infiniti showrooms for their website. Hey, right up my alley. Had to make two trips, though. They wanted daytime and twilight shots, and both places faced east, so the sunny photos had to be done in the morning, the twilight shots at, well twilight. I got a chance to slip a couple of humans into a few of the shots, which I don’t always get to do. I’ll be back in a few days to shoot some video for them as well. Looking forward to that. In the meantime, here are a few of the finished images of the BMW facility.

Dyke Day

December 6, 2010

While shooting a new listing for Dolores Chiu the other day, I spent some time taking some scenic shots along one of Richmond’s dykes. It was an overcast day, but it kind of suited the muted tones of the marshes and stillness of the river. These images will come in handy whenever a new listing comes up in the same neighbourhood.

Strachan Point Waterfront

November 23, 2010

Strachan Point is a very secluded finger of land just north of Horseshoe Bay on the Sea to Sky Highway.  It’s so secluded that even my GPS had a hard time locating it. But it’s worth the trip, especially if you have a fondness for waterfront property. I can’t think of a better place to watch the sun set than this beautiful beachfront home. John Jennings has the details…

Timing is Everything

November 3, 2010

When you are shooting exteriors, you are always at the mercy of the weather and the position of the sun, (unless you’re Joe McNally). So when I was outside shooting the front of this house for John Jennings, and the mid-day sun started to peek through all the huge fir trees in the back, I could sense something magical was happening there. So I grabbed my gear, found a vantage point with Grouse Mountain nicely framing the house, and shot several bracketed photos. I could tell instantly that one of these shots was going to become my new all-time-favourite exterior image.
