Up in the hills above Verbier, I thought it was quite cool that peoples address around here was the altitude there house was at, this one was something like 1850, maybe they are all like that in the hills, anyway the nice people at FT decided to put my shot over 2 pages, now that’s what you call a spread, do miss the old days when supps did features on say architecture and they were A3 in size rather than the pocket job but in saying that I think there maybe a trend in going big, well lets hope so.
I normally post a selection of images from my new work but with all the trips to the hospital lately I have not been posting but I am happy to say that my wife’s treatment is going along very positivity and I can now get back to posting more often.
The most lovely of editors Clare Foster at H&G, sends me on some stunning garden shoots a couple of times a year and this was one of them, I have shot the hotel before, many years ago for a Sunday supp I think, I remember thinking what lovely gardens and lake were so strangely I am back to shoot them now. A good forecast for the morning so I got there just before 5am, dawn breaking and just a hint of mist forming over the lower meadow and lake. They have done a great job at keeping it just tame in the meadow and wet lands around the lake and I would describe the rest of the garden as formal cottage, full of colour. A great vision of the owners and lots of hard work by the gardeners. Gravetye Manor is well worth a look.
Twizzle the super yacht I shot over a number of visits to her last year is now making her away around the world, I have been quite surprise just how many articles have been publish about her, but who couldn’t resist those fetching lines and location. All the best to her and her owners that worked so very hard to make her into the work of art that she is.
A Times job yet to be publish in Oxford shire very nice couple with a colourful house. love the bold prints and the Biba bedroom.
