£2.4 Million Property For Sale in Weymouth

Doing the photography and video for this property was a challenge, but a lot of fun!

Large Property for Sale in Weymouth, Dorset

I was asked to photograph and create a video for this stunning, 10,000 sq. ft property in Buxton Road, Weymouth. After weeks of waiting for the weather to improve, it finally got done but only after multiple visits. This house is so big with so many rooms and so many different nooks, crannies and features, I just had to keep going back. 

We desperately needed some good weather and light for the externals so until that happened, I concentrated on the interior. 

I was told that the previous photographer had used powerful lights which killed the ambience from the beautiful lighting in many of the rooms. Therefore, I used mostly natural light where I could in order to capture that ambience. I must admit, this was a challenge for photography but the video was a little easier.

Weather Watching

Large Property for Sale in Weymouth, Dorset

Luckily I live very close and whilst waiting for the weather, I noticed one day there was a very small window of clear skies. I got my drone and camera gear ready and headed up there.

I jumped out of the car before even greeting the owners, threw the drone up, got a ton of photos and some video clips plus some ground shots and within minutes of landing, the clouds reappeared!

Challenging Property Photography

Most of the rooms in this house are huge. With the ambient lighting, some are also quite dark so getting the exposure right was challenging but in the end, the owners was super happy, which meant I was too. 


My favourite part of the house was the principal bedroom, living/dressing area and bathroom of the amazing loft conversion at the top of the plans below. Wow!

Just by looking at the plans above, you can see how vast this property is. It was a pleasure to shoot but also very tiring lugging my gear from room to room and floor to floor. At one point, the owners' beautiful but LARGE and very heavy pet rottweiler got a bit too friendly and nearly knocked me and my camera into the pool!
