The beautiful gardens of the Doheny Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills are open to the public, and I’ve been there many times, but the interiors of the historic residence are open only seldomly, for private events, so it was a privilege to visit the interior today, for the book launch party for Steven Price’s architectural coffee table book, “Trousdale Estates – Midcentury to Modern in Beverly Hills”, that I photographed some of the houses for. It was exciting to see my images of the A. Quincy Jones house from the book blown up huge in the presentation. We we also got to eat lunch in the grand dining room, which was very special!

After the panel discussion on Modernism,  I attended author Steven Price’s VIP book signing party during Modernism Week, a at the Palm Springs Architecture & Design Center. Very exciting to help him celebrate his huge coffee table book, “Trousdale Estates – Midcentury to Modern in Beverly Hills” being released, and having him sign my copy.

It was such an honor to be a part of the project, and get to photograph a couple of the houses in the book, including the one showing here.

I attended Modernism Week’s Elle Decor panel discussion on Modernism architecture, at the Palm Springs Art Museum, with Steven Price, author of the coffee table book on the architecture of Trousdale Estates, “Midcentury to Modern in Beverly Hills”, which I had the honor of photographing several of the residences for, including the images here, of an A. Quincy Jones house. The Elle Decor editor-in-chief, Michael Boodro, and architect, Leo Marmol, of Marmol Radziner, were also on the panel.   It was exciting to see some of my images from the book blown up huge on the presentation screen!

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.

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)

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!
