6320RichardBradley-1

I was recently commissioned by Hardee, Hunt and Williams to photograph an incredible estate home at 6226 Richard Bradley Dr., which is being marketed by their company. This craftsman style home is situated in its own fenced, park like setting and is close to Wrightsville Beach. It has remarkable wood work throughout and will be a coveted property for that discerning buyer. It was the second time I got to work with Barb Wall who is a talented designer and stager. Barb is owner of  J-O-A-T and has a great eye for color and detail. She staged this home and as always, was a pleasure to work along side and to have her input. This beautiful home is representative of the quality of homes that are marketed by Hardee, Hunt and Williams.

Below are a few of the photos from the days shoot:

I spend a great deal of time photographing some very beautiful homes. Each one has its own character and the designs in this area are usually traditional in nature, so I am very rarely overwhelmed by a particular homes design. Until recently. This shoot was for the September issue of Salt Magazine. When Senior Editor, Ashley Wahl, told me about the home I was really anxious to do this job. The home is one of three Certified Passive homes in North Carolina and the first Certified Passive home in Wilmington. So yeah, I was excited.

The 5500 sf home sits at the top of a beautiful site overlooking Hewletts Creek and is enveloped by these incredible, old, live oaks.  Lucien Ellison, his wife Jane, and their three boys are the occupants. Lucien is also the builder of the home and it was constructed by his company, Ellison Building Company. He hopes to bring many more passive homes to this area.The home was designed by local architect, Kevin Pfirman. This is the second Kevin Pfirman designed home that I have photographed and I have to say, I like his clean designs. If you haven’t picked up a September copy of Salt Magazine, do so. Ashley’s story of this home describes the many details behind its creation. It really is special.

I recently had the pleasure of photographing the before and after photos for the  Arts Council of Wilmington 2014 Designer Showcase home. The home was open from May 2-18 and was a grand Georgian, located at 1909 Gillette Drive in Forest Hills on the Cape Fear Country Club. The designers did a magnificent job and  I wanted to feature some of the before and after photos of a few of the many rooms that were decorated by this talented group. Its not the whole home, but it will give you an idea of the work that went into pulling such an event together.

I’m fortunate in my work as a NC Interiors, Real Estate and Architectural photographer, to spend time in some really cool homes. They come in all shapes and styles, mostly traditional, some contemporary, but occasionally I get to see something really different and unique. Such was the case when I photographed this home for the March issue of Salt Magazine. The home is in Carolina Beach and is owned by Todd and Tina Piper. Todd is the owner of Tidal Wave Construction, an avid surfer and the builder of the home. The Pipers share the home with their two boys, Noah and Fisher.The home was designed by architect Kevin Pfirman and is built with steel-reinforced concrete and mainly recycled material. It is a veritable fortress on the beach and highly efficient.

I could go on and on about the home, but there is a much better, detailed story offered by talented writer, Anne Barnhill in this months issue of Salt Magazine. Its on the racks now and if you haven’t already picked up your copy, you should. It offers the best insight into the real Wilmington and everything the area offers. Meanwhile, enjoy a brief tour of some of the highlights of the Piper home.

I recently did some work for talented interior designer, Leslie Stachowicz, ASID,LEED AP.  She  helped the homeowners with their home in Kure Beach and her ideas and attention to even the smallest details is evident.  Leslie has been formerly associated with Big Sky Design, where she was Vice President and Interior Designer. She has since opened her own company, Peridot interiors LLC, and continues on with projects in the Wilmington, NC area and throughout the State. If you have a design project in mind, you may reach Leslie by email at leslie@peridotinteriors.com. Below are a few photos from the days shoot.
