This impressive Southlands estate didn’t last long on the market. Over 31,000 square feet in the middle of horse country. Teak hardwood floors span the huge open plan interior, and of course, the tennis court and indoor pool. Realtor Patrick Weeks sold it a couple of days after I sent him the photos. Coincidence?

The owners of this North Vancouver view property banished neutral colours from their home when they redesigned it a few years ago. Instead of blending into the background, the walls transform the house into a work of art, reflecting the tastes of the owners, and complements their interesting collections of figurines, sculptures, and motorcycles. From the street, the front of the house is very unassuming, but the back yard is where the real living takes place: a huge pool, decks, waterfall, and cabana make the most of the available space. I’m glad Clive and Steve chose to do a night shoot here, the colours stand out like neon against the dark blue evening sky.
We had a few sunny days recently and my client, Eric Christiansen, took advantage of the nice weather to book some twilight shoots with me. I got to this West Vancouver townhome a little before sunset and started shooting interiors until the sky offered up that nice cobalt blue tone that I always wait for. It’s only visible for about 15 minutes just after the sun goes down, so it’s important to scout out the locations for those special shots ahead of time. For this layout, we had two balconies and the main room to cover, so I just ran from one spot to the other, taking shots every minute or so. You can see all the images, plus the listing information here.
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.
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.

Here’s your chance to live right in the heart of Vancouver. It doesn’t get any more central than L’Hermitage at Robson and Richards, and this spotless one bedroom and den gives you a front row seat.

Talk to Mike Stewart to get the full story.
I shot this nice home in North Vancouver’s Edgemont neighbourhood for realtor Clive Benjafield the other day. After seeing the photos, he asked me to come back and do an evening shoot of the exterior. I think he made the right call. Even with an overcast, rainy sky, a twilight shoot can make a house look pretty spectacular. Here are the daytime and evening shots of the house. Check out Clive’s website for the rest of the photos.
Here’s your chance to grab one of the finest properties in Deep cove. 7000 square feet on over half an acre of waterfront. Panoramic views from the floor to ceiling windows, oasis pool, and private beach. Dan Jarvis can help you figure out how to pay for it.
If you have driven down Cornwall Avenue by Kits Beach anytime in the last few months you could not have missed the huge sign in front of this small apartment building. Five suites in total, each one with a water view. The building was last used as a private home, and the suites were not rented, just occupied infrequently by friends and family. So all were beautifully furnished in the same vintage 1970s period. I knew this one of a kind property wouldn’t last long on the market. For those of you who didn’t get a chance to see the inside of this unique property, here are a few of my photos.
You can tell that a house is well designed when it looks good even in the pouring rain. This beautiful timber frame home in the British Properties has a breathtaking living area, with huge windows framed by a soaring 20 foot ceiling and an open walkway on the second floor. I will be going back for view shots when (if?) the weather clears up, but in the meantime enjoy the indoor scenery of this impressive home. Contact Darlene Dunnett for more information.
