Got to take a private, behind-the-scenes tour of the under-construction Sunset La Cienega residential & hotel project on Sunset Bl., in West Hollywood, with the Art & Sausage group, and led by Bradley Aaronson of CIM Group, the developer. We toured the James Hotel, got to go to the rooftop bar, and also toured the 8500 Sunset condo building, including one of the loft units.

Excited beyond belief that the amazing coffee table book, “Trousdale Estates – Mid-Century to Modern in Beverly Hills”, by my friend, author Steven Price , on the architecture of the Trousdale Estates neighborhood of Beverly Hills, has now been released!

Steven hired me to photograph several houses for the book, including a residence by famed architect A. Quincy Jones; this was the very first time the owners had ever let it be photographed, so that was a huge honor!

It was also exciting to get to photograph Beverly Hills real estate icon, Jeff Hyland’s house, with amazing views of the city to the ocean!

This was such an amazing project to be a part of! Thanks, Steven, for bringing me on board this book project, it was an honor!

 

The book is available on Amazon and bookstores everywhere, including Barnes & Noble.

Always love when Houzz writes another article featuring an image of mine, this time an article on interior design, and sensational storage ideas of shoes. They featured my image I photographed for my interior design client at a gorgeous Manhattan Beach residence they designed.

Excited to have just bought a Samsung Gear VR goggles for virtual reality, plus a Samsung S6 smartphone, which snaps onto the goggles; with these, plus the free Matterport VR app, you, dear Realtor, architect, interior designer, homebuilder, developer, apartment community leasing manager, etc. can show potential clients the interiors of the house, apartment, store, hotel, nightclub, etc., that you want to showcase! Any Matterport 3D tour I photograph of your building will automatically also be viewable in virtual reality (using VR goggles), in addition to the standard method of viewing them on a computer screen, tablet, or smartphone!

With these Samsung Gear VR goggles ($99), plus a Samsung phone…….

(see https://matterport.com/virtual-reality/order-matterport-vr/ for a list of compatible phones)

…….you will be able to view the Matterport 3D tour that I shot with my Matterport 3D camera……

screen-shot-2016-11-14-at-3-45-40-pm

…..in virtual reality

If you haven’t already experienced virtual reality goggles, they provide an amazing, immersive experience, where you feel like you’re actually in the room, and can walk around, turn around, and walk up or down stairs!

 

Read more on the many applications that are possible for me to shoot for you with my Matterport 3D camera:

https://matterport.com/virtual-reality/applications

…..including real estate, allowing you, Realtors, to be more efficient with your time by not having to drive your clients to every single listing, but rather have them tour a bunch of them with the VR goggles in your office, and then drive them only to the couple listings that they were able to narrow their search down to!

E! News featured my images on E! TV (and in their online version of the show) of this gorgeous architectural house, designed by architect Abramson Teiger, which “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke just purchased.
 
Not really happy, though, that they didn’t give me photo credit, but rather to Trulia, who doesn’t deserve credit. Come on, E! News, you know better.

On MAK Center’s architectural home tour, I volunteered as a docent at the Birtcher-Share House by Harwell H. Harris, in the Mount Washington area of LA.   Love how several rooms are cantilevered out over patios and gardens, and how there are so many unexpected, hidden outdoor spaces!
