I’ve photographed a lot of great homes and last weekend I had the pleasure of shooting a beautiful house for Karen & Kate of Deasy Penner. Maybe it’s because I’ve seen so many great homes or because I’ve lived in LA for too long but I was surprised when they told me the house was listed for $3.4 mil. Only in LA would that seem like a great deal.
3320 Sumac Ridge Rd in beautiful Malibu California has five bedrooms, five baths a great floor plan and kitchen for entertaining, a pool and oh did I mention the hilltop ocean views? (click on the link for more photos and MLS listing)
Over the past couple weeks I have been digging through the archives to pull images for this year’s slide show. The slideshow represents all the assignments I shot in 2009 as well as follows the growth of our 20 month old daughter Grace.
It’s great to reflect on what worked and what didn’t and it has planted a few seeds for new business plans for 2010. The slide show is laid out chronologically so if the newborn shot next to the architecture shot next to the model seems out of place, now you know why.
Enjoy the show. Hopefully you will see some new images as well as think back to our photo shoot together. Maybe you’ll even see some images that will inspire another shoot for 2010. Thanks for your support and referrals, they keep my business alive.
If you missed last years check out the following from 2008:
It’s been a busy week. In addition to taking a trip down to Temecula with Robin I shot two new properties for Deasy Penner.
The first house is located at 2345 Beach Ave in Venice. Sometimes modern architecture can come across as cold; this house is warm, open and inviting.
This is the second time I have been brought in to re-shoot a house that had already been photographed by a previous “photographer”.
When looking to invest almost two million dollars in a home would you be drawn to visit the leaning tower of Venice (as seen here in the image shot by the previous photographer)?
Or would the following images lead you to believe that this home is not only stylish and beautiful but it has great character and craftsmanship and therefore worth taking the time to see for yourself?
You never know who’s going to see your work or how it’s going to lead to something else.
I got a call from a friend whose real estate agent saw a photo I had shot of their home and wanted to it use in the marketing of their home. In 2006 the Knight’s commissioned me to shoot several of the most important places in their life. I shot their first home, their current home, the hospital where their boys were born, the location of their first date, and a couple other locations around LA that are dear to their hearts. If I remember correctly this was the location of their first date.
Since then I have shot numerous projects for their landscape and lighting design business. The following image was of a home in Venice. John designed the fire and water features in addition to the landscaping.
Now that they are in the process of selling their home I contacted their listing agent to discuss the details of using the image from 2006. I showed her recent examples of my architectural photography and a few hours later I was shooting the entire house.
