Another house I shot while in Cape Town was this beach house in Bloubergstrand, on the northern part of Caps Bay. The house literally sits right on the beach and the design caters to this context. As the shot above shows the house opens up to a large wood deck. From here you have some sand dunes and then the beach and ocean. The beach here is very private.
Like the previous house I shot in Cape Town, the same day and a bit earlier, I had a short amount of time to get the shots Andrew wanted to get. So, like the previous house, I started shooting in the main space, the lounge, and worked my way out from there.
The time I shot this was about an two hours before sunset. The house’s view is towards the west so I was able to have some pretty dramatic light. I think the shots show this off… the ones looking out towards the water.
Technically my shooting was about the same as the previous house. I did find that I didn’t need to use my flash and so I didn’t break it out for any of these shots. Anyhow, like before, I’ll let the images speak for themselves…
