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...

Just back from the autumnal delights of the Bordeaux region where every other house is a château and even the most minute pocket of land is given over to the vine. We were staying at the wonderful Château Rigaud, owned and run by dream team Anna and Aib and where you feel as though you’re a guest at an intimate house party rather than an impersonal hotel; there are no numbers on doors or reception staff – you just help yourself to drinks at the bar, stroll about checking out what the brilliant chef Steve is planning for dinner, eat way too much and generally have a fabulous time.
There was a purpose though you understand – it’s not all play – we were the first guests to try out their Bread and Wine Weekend. We learnt to make fougasse, sour dough and pizza which we cooked in the wood-fired oven in the vegetable garden surrounded by just-turning vines and ate with new best mates – our fellow guests. The ‘slap and tickle’ is a method for kneading the dough by the way, taught to us by Steve and fellow chef, Peter – highly recommended as a form of strenuous exercise or a way of getting rid of pent-up aggression! Afternoons were spent visiting St Emilion or Sauternes (apparently they’re quite famous for wine…) before we came back for truly memorable feasts which were matched with wines from Bordeaux. Back to earth with a bump last night though when we came home to a bare fridge and ended up eating fish fingers and peas…
Have just begun work on shooting lovely Chateau Rigaud near St Emilion, France… great atmosphere, great hosts, great countryside… here are some quick samples.
