East Vancouver Renovation

February 24, 2013

This heritage house in East Vancouver was a particularly tricky shoot. Dark wood is one of the most difficult surfaces to capture. It is a light-sucking sponge, and what light doesn’t get absorbed by the wood is often bounced right back at the camera as glare. So when Dave at Barkovic Development Corp described this project to me over the phone, I made sure we booked an overcast day. At least I wouldn’t have to fight the sun, which would have made things even worse. Fortunately for me, Dave gave me complete license to shoot whatever I wanted, which in most cases was the incredible details that have been masterfully restored or replaced throughout the house, like the push button light switches.

Jeffs Residences

January 31, 2013

If you have dreamed of living in the heart of Vancouver’s Commercial Drive district, Jeffs Residences might be what you’re looking for. The development is a series of twenty townhomes designed with turn-of-the-century exteriors, and ultra modern interiors. Grand opening is February 9. Here is a sneak preview of some of the images I took for the developer:

Pleasant Walk

November 27, 2012

I just completed a photo shoot for a group of townhomes on a beautiful quiet street in Mount Pleasant. Pleasant Walk is brand new, and one of the suites has been artfully staged and open for inspection. Contact Patrick Weeks for more information.

Main Street townhouse

February 9, 2012

This beautiful townhouse would look right at home in Kits or Kerrisdale, even though it’s a block from the shops on Main Street. It features Brazilian cherrywood floors that have to be seen in person to be appreciated. 14 foot ceilings and windows on all sides give it lots of light and space. There’s an open house coming up — see Jacob Krause for details.

Change of Scenery

October 7, 2011

It’s not widely known, but many of the homes in Vancouver’s Hastings Sunrise neighbourhood have the most interesting views in the city. Take this loft in the Cannery Row building. It has a front row seat to our bustling container port operations, Burrard Inlet, and the North Shore mountains. You can enjoy the view out the 12 foot high windows from both floors of this large unit. A rooftop deck, polished concrete floor and muted earth tones on the walls add to the appeal of this unique home. See Craig Rushton for all the details.
