Chalk and cheese spring to mind, as interior photographers we face the unknown very day, I knock on a door and never know what I will fine, for me that’s one on the most existing parts of the job. When Merlin the great god of photography gave us Photoshop back 1988, he should have made very photographer to sign a contact that they would never tell clients how it was done because now they know, they walk around going make this blue, I will have some rare vases here and water flowing out on this wall…I know I exaggerate and I love all my clients..xx but look at below.
On the left the Chalk on the right the cheese.
Shot this last year, great job and team, I cant belive what these interior design teams get done in the final few days of a instulation, well done, i am sure it will be well featured around the world.
As the autumn nip arrives in the air and I start clear the garden ready for winter, it’s good to remember how wonderful the colour we had earlier in the year.
The last job I shot before Helen Green’s sad death, I will miss passion and giuldnace but look forward with working with the team she so carfuly picked.
Not much to say about this one, lovely garden, lovey chap and lovely cups of tea and all manner of little things to eat.
God these garden shoots, you forget them, they nearly always shot a year before so when they go to press the right flowers are out, this was a great morning getting there for 1st light, I knew I need a little help from the big soft box in the sky and I got what I wanted page 4 of the issuu article long grasses with sun raising, top shot in my book. Anyway hope you enjoy them here on in the magazine.
Trying to run a renovation project and get out to take pictures is proving quite difficult but so the blog is a good reason to make me do it.
I have loved returning back to garden photography this year, I used to shoot a lot for Garden Illustrated back in the 90-00s when Mrs John brown was there and the lovely team people, Rosie, Clare…etc. Well bit of a full circle really as my 1st garden shoot this year was a buy-in to GI and since then I have done a number of more for other mags. Snap of my latest..nothing like a bit of f1.2.
You can make a lot of your own luck in this business, I would like to think that you as a viewer would thing this is pretty good shot, well I did fine the composition but looking at weather, choosing the right day and being prepared to get up a bit early can all add to getting the right shot.
