Have just returned from a lovely shoot at Copped Hall in Essex where I was shooting for Burgon and Ball, a famous old name in garden products. They make shears (in the olden days they started off as a sheep shearing tool maker!), watering cans, planters, trugs, labels etc etc. We spent the day with James Crebbin-Bailey of ‘Topiary Arts’, a Chelsea Gold medal winner, photographing the making, trimming and sculpting of topiary for the garden. Copped Hall is a fascinating old walled garden and house to the North of London where James keeps his young plants and the garden made a picturesque backdrop for a garden product shoot. I’m hoping to get my hands on some of Burgon and Ball’s product range next year to do some stock photography…. if you haven’t already spotted it in your garden centre, it’s well worth a look!…..
