After I pulled into the driveway of this gorgeous home on Rosehill Dr. in Kamloops to photograph it for a builder, the first thing I did was head to the back to check out what the view was like. I knew it wouldn’t disappoint simply because of the elevation gained from the valley of Kamloops. To put it mildly it was fantastic but I didn’t really appreciate the magnitude of it until dusk. When the sun went down and the lights of the valley started to flicker on, I was blown away at the beauty from this perch in the mountains.
Photographing it took some patience for the light to balance a bit from ambient (outside) to inside, and then getting that perfect balance of fill, or artificial light to bring out the highlights of the architecture. I love shooting homes of this caliber as I love the challenges that it brings.
Every room in this house had character, even the library, which is not shown. The wide open layout gave a feeling of freedom and spaciousness, especially with those large and plentiful windows. Dusk shooting doesn’t always bring out the best in a home or commercial building, but in the is case it magnified the positives and created an emotional reaction that the client was looking for.
