My favorite house in 2019.
As West Palm Beach real estate photographer and videographer every day I see many different houses. And all my friends and realtors know how much I love old Florida charm. And this house was really a charmer. Updated but still kept its own character and style.
I Photographed this house for my long-time client realtor and was so pleased to see what her clients have done with the property during house improvement. Probably this is my “House of 2019” award winner. Can real estate photographers and videographers start that kind of tradition?
As a real estate photographer and videographer, I do see a lot of flips and flops when investors update old Florida houses. And sometimes it hurts when you see just “slap drywall and paint it gray” flip. Without considering history and story what house and area tell. It’s sad to see how Floridas architecture, what I loved so much slowly turns to cookie-cutter …in best case ala Magnolia Farms (HGTV) houses.
Do not get me wrong..nothing wrong with Magnolia farms esthetics, but people, stop copying. Remember times when all Florida homes were “toscanised”, meaning foux plaster and yellowish paints on walls, heavy furniture, fake flowers….all houses looked the same. Now its Joanna Gaines style.
What happened with Florida’s style?
Native, naturally, lived here. Somehow a little bohemian, almost easy island vacation life living? And its not only in real estate and house flipping. When I moved to Florida my favorite place to go for dinners or drinks was Delray beach…now it is all turned to corporate restaurant strip losing Florida charm again.
There are tiny pockets in Delray Beach that still are holding up…Brainy Breezes and Pineapple Grove arts district.
To be fair many of Palm beach island residents still keep their houses “old school” style. But it’s coming…I have seen completely redone house and I’m wondering I’m in Florida or NYC Manhattan. Therefore I was so happy to accept a photography project for one of the architects from New England. He redid his apartment and now wants to be published in Palm Beach magazine. Its redone in a modern style but still keeping in mind local style traditions. Of course, my excitement got even in higher lever when I discovered that all his couches are bought at my fav furniture store Roche Bobois Paris
I have a personal project in mind,
every time when in photograph houses I will film snippets of great design not copied from Johnses. And make my real estate video favorites of the year 2020. I think it will be a fun project. Let’s start year strong and creative!
This was a challenging real estate video job. As we know in Florida weather can change rapidly. While I was shooting inside of the house I noticed that clouds from the ocean are moving in with the speed of great comodo dragon.
But the property is located in a gorgeous location and could not miss outside videos. It had Intercoastal water access located in the heart of Manalapan Island right across from famous Vanderbilt house on Palm Beach island. Abit Vanderbilt house – You can take a look here.
I actually had that rare opportunity to see Vanderbilt house from inside after renovation. It is gorgeous. New Owners real did a great job.
Now back to the property on the other side of the waterway. I did grab my camera, sliders, and gimbal and rushed out to capture beautiful landscaping, pool, and views from the patio. Right after I landed my drone wind picked up and rain started… speaking of good timing. You can see the final result of my challenging day. If there would not be timing restrictions I would go back and capture on video more outside entertainment areas….but if life brings you rain….you do your best with what you have.

I have a blessing…. I did grow up with my Godfathers influence in my architectural taste. (he was architect) Many of my friends know about my obsession with architects. A specially with Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe ,Eero Saarinen and of course Frank Gehry.
I had that pleasure to see some of his works in person…meaning I lived in Chicago and now I visit Miami often and on one of my work related visits to LA I did find time to see his designed building – Walt Disney Concert Hall.
I found out he designed Facebooks Headquarters in Silicone Valley as well.
Why im not surprised?
Today I stumbled upon article from Architectural Digest about house he designed for his wife and him.
Many dreams starts with “when I will win the lottery” …and my dreams are …I will live either at Frank Gehrys designed house or Frank Lloyds house….my favorite Farnsworth house (designed by Mies van der Rohe) is turned to museum. No luck there 🙂
As a real estate photographer I would love one day to photograph any of his designed buildings…. with all the curves, ..to play with shapes and shadows.
