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.
What do you get when you mix the beautiful English countryside, the perfect spot to grow fruit trees and a man with passion? Timmy’s Damson Gin has a wonderful deep colour; this smooth and fruity gin is lovingly handmade and ripened by the British summer. The damsons are grown on the gentle slops then put into jars and seeped in London Gin and sugar and left to mature for at least eight months.
Boys playing at camps you can’t beat it, great few days away with Timmy living in the UK outback, driving tractors and taking a few pictures.
Showed you a image of Tiger a a few months ago, well he ended up here, please take a look.
We know our clays, and when we refer to clay, we mean the pure unfired version; with all its beneficial properties breathing away.
Clayworks has been building with clay since 2002. We’ve learned the ‘ins and outs’ of this most versatile of natural building materials as any true practitioner has to: from the ground up. In the rain as well as the shine; sourcing and utilising clay sub soils at our client site from under our feet. Turning ‘mud’ into beautiful, thick clay walls and internal clay plasters. If you know and visit Cornwall, SW England, then you may well have seen one of our cob restoration and new build houses.

Gods own theme park, well that’s the only way to describe Scotland in my view and the Island are like the VIP areas. Just back from 4 great days on Colonsay, I was there a year ago shooting for the marketing of the island, this year I was back just for the island. We stayed at Baleromindubh Cottage which has a panorama of Jura, Islay and Scarba out of all the window on one side of the cottage. Have you not been yet, where have you been all of this time…. take a look at their Colonsay Estate
This is the wide’s TV you will ever see and its free 24/7, the sun was going down at 10.30pm when we where there and with nothing in the way, you still see the sun right to the end, for me its just like being in India which does just the same into the sea, it warm your heart and makes all those work days worth it.
For more of what I have shot on Colonsay and a look at their fab hotel, take a look at the portfolio below.
On the back of their ongoing very successful pop up shop at Liberty’s RE have now just finished their Christmas/winter shoot for the autumn catalogue. Here’s a taster …..from the studio shoot, as normal they are always coming up with new and original ideas and products, please have a look at the site RE
I know, I know, people are getting tied of me batting on about how lovely the weather is and consequently how good the trees, plants and countryside looks. Chelsea flower show very soon, I hope very one has a great show. Here’s a little film we shot in my garden to get you in the mood.
The West being the wilds of Cornwall which is the south west tip of the uk, a beautiful place weather the sun or rain, I say if you are in Cornwall and it rains, then go to a place with water and then rain just makes the sense of being there even more real, as the sun does on a beach. Anyway on my travels I came across the little tiger, some lovely friends, some great food and a few shoots in the bag to.
