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.

The Sage

November 25, 2012

The lobbies of most residential buildings are forgettably drab — you walk through them on your way to the elevator and nothing registers. Not so with the entry to Kenstone’s Sage in the Wesbrook Place community of UBC. The lobby reflects the forest surrounding the building, with huge planks of rough cedar that look like they were painted on the walls with a palette knife. Designer Merike Lainevool of Kodu Design filled the main floor lounge with comfortable sofas and low-slung tables that invite you to sit down and enjoy the reflecting pools that grace the building’s front.

Odenza Homes photoshoot

November 17, 2012

When you are shooting for a busy, successful custom home builder like Odenza, you don’t have the luxury of waiting for the perfect time to get your shots. There’s usually only one day between the time the home is completed, and it is turned over to the owner, as was the case with this west side beauty. On this day, the afternoon sun was low in the sky and blazing in the windows, which had no shades or blinds, since the house was still undergoing a few last-minute touchups. The hardwood floors magnified the sunlight and sent it flying around the bare walls and ceilings. We had to shove construction materials out of sight, sweep the sawdust off the floors, and dodge the plumbers, electricians and house inspectors who were finishing up their work. We tried to keep out of everyone’s way as we worked our way through each room. At the end of the day we had 30 images of this beautiful house for Odenza to add to their portfolio.

New Designer Shoot

November 1, 2012

Here’s another beautiful makeover by talented designer Voula Goutsos of Olive Environments + Objects. The Prince George owners wanted a contemporary, downtown pad to spend some of their retirement years in, and Voula filled this Coal Harbour condo with bright, comfy furniture that complemented rather than overpowered the jaw-dropping view.
