Well, the year's turned and I'm mooching around in the office trying to reorganise/springclean and generally do nothing! It was a good year (2012) and you can read a review here... At the moment its snowing here in Bristol, so any excuse to discuss 'not snowing' weather would be gratefully received!

Great start to the year for interior photography with some lovely pieces being published… Homes and Gardens have just done two of my features, both houses shot in London towards the end of last year… The cover image is part of a feature we did about Lord David Herbert’s house… a lovely townhouse owned by the proprietor of David Seyfried Furniture, who make beautiful upholstered furniture and are based at Chelsea Design Centre…. and the bottom row of images are part of a second feature about a house in North London owned by Mette Hardie… lovely use of Crittall windows….
Both of the above houses were quite different from another recently published piece, all about the wonderful Silvana De Soisson’s house in Wiltshire, covered for Country Living magazine. We spent a great day there, while Silvana cooked lovely Pistachio biscuits and made us coffee… The house is cluttered and eccentric, and I’m sure you’ll agree, a picture-perfect home, cosy and inviting…. Silvana is the brains behind the ‘Foodie Bugle‘, an online food magazine thats fast becoming a ‘must read’ for those who know their pistachios….As you can see, all three houses involved different ways of working…. interior photography can involve lots of styling… taking ‘stuff’ out or adding carefully chosen bits to other shots. A good interior stylist is worth his (actually, more often than not ‘her’!) weight in gold…. In the case of both the Homes and Gardens shoots, Alice Ridley did the honours, whilst Country Living’s own Caroline Reeves styled Silvana’s house…
Last week I was priveledged to be asked to do some photography at a wedding for Country Living… I am in no way a wedding photographer, and never will be, its a skill that is as specialised and tricky as any other speciality… but in this case, the brief was to photograph the decoration, atmosphere and mood of the wedding, rather than the ‘nuts and bolts’ of the affair… The bride and groom had chosen the beautiful ‘Trevoole Farm‘ in Cornwall, and Beth, the owner, and all her helpers had turned the place into a fairytale venue.. lanterns, vintage candelabras, garlands and rose arbours, it really was the perfect country wedding. Two days after the wedding, the marquee was transformed in to a sale room and all the cutlery, vases, candelabras and chairs were sold on for charity… a lovely was to start married life! thanks for letting me come along and do the photography!
Being an interiors and gardens photographer based in Bristol, means that I am asked to go to Cornwall a lot. Because its very close. Nothing is close to Cornwall, its a long long way down there… doesn’t stop me going though, because its the most amazing county of all when it comes to countryside, eccentricity, seaside and just ‘photogenic-ness’ (there you go, I made up a word especially for it)… I love it there, and this months ‘Country Living’ and ‘Homes and Gardens’ magazines have nice big features that I shot down there… so, thank you Cornwall for your photogenic-ness… and thanks to Beth and Travis at Trevoole Farm, and to Caerhays Castle for those fab camellias…
