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!

Well its 'here we go again' time!... off to Cornwall again shooting for 25BH magazine, then straight back and up the M4 to shoot for a day with Esti Barnes of 'Top Floor Rugs' in London on wednesday. Then another shoot for Route One in the next couple of weeks, and a final shoot for the wonderful National Trust at Powis Castle Gardens ... Blimey...

We had an interesting and frantic shoot at the Naval Club in Central London last week… a days shoot in which we needed to get food, staff, rooms and atmosphere in one of Londons most ‘elegant and comfortable’ town houses. The staff were a great help, the weather wasn’t (!) and I think we distilled the ‘feel’ of the place quite well. These images are of the dining room and the food… a grand but relaxing room in which the chef served excellent modern food. Food Photography in these circumstances can be a tricky affair… there usually isn’t much time, so we need to work quickly, but the staff were a great help, and the chef was brilliant…
I spent an enjoyable day photographing the beautiful rugs designed by top designer Esti Barnes recently. Her company, ‘Top Floor Rugs‘ has become a leading source for distinctive contemporary hand-made rugs and carpets, and recently won ‘Best of Year’ at Interior Design magazine’s annual awards. The company were also commended in the Elle Deco awards of 2012 for ‘best showroom’ (at Chelsea Harbour Design Centre). Gorgeous rugs that feel beautiful and look like works of art…
Good Interior Photography relies on a number of factors, one of which is the styling, and in this case, the excellent Claudia Bryant was indispensable, as was Jo Israelsohn of Top Floor’s PR company Portrait Communications….
having a morning-in editing the stock photography images… this lot to go to Getty and GapPhotos… Looking forward to spring already!
Wintery days can be difficult for a photographer… after days in the office, I’ll try and escape to the allotment, and its amazing what beauty you can find if you’re desperate!
Wintery branches make a great frame for this shot of the London Eye… my little G11 Canon is a constant companion… RAW images, zoom lens, solid construction… thats all you need for a snappy camera..
Which way??! I toned this images with a bit of blue…seems to suit the cold weather … ever seen the work of James Ravilious? fabulous photographer who spent a lifetime documenting the Devon communities who lived near him in North Devon… this shot reminds me of his wonderful landscapes..
wonderful Hampton Court… somehow a refreshing splash when compared to Chelsea?
Quick coffee before work, and look what I came across! Famous London venue in the sixties for rockers…
Been at Chelsea all day and have come back with another huge selection of images that need to be edited… gardens that cought my eye were The Daily Telegraphs by Cleve West (best in show?), Diarmuid Gavin’s, The RNIB garden, The RBC New Wild Garden and the B and Q garden. The question on everyone’s lips has been ‘but is it really gardening’?… personally, I love my allotment and getting my hands dirty… it would be a bit annoying if you left your wheelbarrow a hundred foot up in the air !
