Real estate and architecture photography is something i have been doing a fair bit of recently. However nothing comes has come close to wow'ing me like the house i shot in Mosman Park on Friday. Built over several years by one of Perth's leading builders Beaumonde Homes this fine home is testament quality workmanship and the vision of both the architect and owners.
The only problem i faced was shooting it in a limited timeframe available as the setting Perth sun started to plummet quickly. The italian influenced stonework steeply worked itself up the cliff as the 3 story home boldy hung to its foundations to offer breathtaking views of the swan river and the city skyline in the distance.
Each year the Master Builder Association awards is a celebration of Perth's wealth of top end builders and while i'm no expert, i'd imagine this Mosman Park home is a big chance take home a prize.

East Fremantle Sharks got their first points of the season on Saturday over the Perth Demons, at Brownes Stadium. The match was played at a frantic pace in stifling heat. With the game in the balance at 3/4 time the East Fremantle Sharks tore the game open in the final quarter slamming on 9 goals to 1.
Brad Dalziell were impressive and Fremantle Docker recruit Jonathon Griffin dominated in the ruck for the blue and white with 31 hit-outs. Perth were led well by ex-West Coast Eagle Andrew McDougall and Casey Sibosado in the back line.
The Perth Demons showed a lot of good signs with a young list and certainly look poised to make a march up the ladder in the wake of former coach Andrew Jarman leaving the post at the end of last season.
After two solid performances, East Fremantle may lose the services of Daniel Kerr due to injury problems with the West Coast Eagles midfield with Marc LeCras and fellow Shark Chris Masten both getting injured in the Eagles round 1 victory over the North Melbourne Kangaroos.
The East Fremantle Sharks are to play Subiaco at East Fremantle Oval on Saturday 2nd April at the earlier start time of 1.30pm to accomodate the 5.40 bouncedown of the AFL game between the Fremantle Dockers and Geelong Cats. Meanwhile the Perth Demons head to Fremantle Oval to take on the Bulldogs in what should be a tight game on Friday night.
I had a great morning today as part of a photography tour around the streets of Fremantle that's aimed at giving all participants the basic photography skills to take better photos whether around Perth or for future travel photography.
I will be taking running some of these courses in the coming weeks and months so it was great to pick up on the advice of other professional photographers in Perth as well as Sydney.
The aim of the course was to communicate in a 3 hour lesson some of the key principles and elements of photography such as line, texture, form, shape as well as tips on portrait photography in direct sunlight and shady conditions.
The tour took us on a leisurely stroll through the picturesque town of Fremantle, Western Australia starting at the Fremantle town hall and ending at my favorite destination...Little Creatures Brewery.
The photograph above was taken at the Moores gallery on Henry Street Fremantle. Aside from having without a doubt the best coffee in Fremantle (Moore & Moore Cafe) if not all of Perth, the Moores gallery hosts some amazing exhibitions. Currently there is a photographic exhibition on street art which features some fascinating photos of graffiti and derelict buildings including the famous South Fremantle Power Station. The top floor of the Moores gallery was in this case empty and i loved the light which was falling through the window on to the raw floorboards and rustic walls.
If you have any interest in participating in one of these photography courses please contact me and i will forward you all the details.
