Horizon Imaging

Architectural photographs and virtual tour of remodelled property in Haslemere, Surrey

Earlier this summer we were commissioned by a construction company to capture marketing imagery of one of their latest property remodelling / extension projects in Haslemere, Surrey. The extent of the work was far-ranging, from building a new swimming pool, adding a roof terrace, remodelling an existing basement, as well as adding a significant new three-storey extension to one end of the property. 
The first stage of the shoot was taking external photographs of the property, in a way that would do this incredible property justice — not an easy task given the property was three storeys high and was sat at the top of a very sloped garden! 
We took a range of photos, both from head-height, but also using our 9-metre telescopic pole. Using the live video-feed function to remotely view what the camera could ‘see’ via a smartphone app, we were able to stand at the bottom of the garden and yet position the camera level with the bottom of the property, meaning there were no ugly converging vertical lines in the photos (where the property appears to taper as you go up). 
This additional elevation beautifully shows off not only the property, but also the swimming pool, the surrounding landscaped garden as well as the amazing wall of trees which surround the plot on all sides. 
You can see some of the external photographs we took below:

With the external photographs in the bag (just as the sun went in for the rest of the day!) we turned our attention to the interior photographs. Many of the rooms had either been completely transformed, or didn’t even exist before, so we were asked to provide a comprehensive range of images of every room in the house. 
Over the years we have perfected our ‘exposure fusion’ method of interior architectural photography, whereby multiple exposures are combined into a single image in software to retain detail in both the highlight and shadow areas of the scenes we capture. Our approach uses no additional / external lights such as flashes, as unless set up very carefully, these can lead to unnatural looking images which get darker the further away you get from the camera. Another benefit of not using additional lighting is that our images tend to faithfully capture how the scenes look to the human eye, making the rooms feel warm and inviting.

Last but not least we then walked around the entire interior of the property with our Matterport 3D scanning camera, creating an interactive virtual tour of the entire property. To explore this beautiful property yourself, follow these simple instructions:
