finishing touches

 
Interior photography of the Study room of  Jean Louis Deniot Parisian apartment
 

It’s one of the joys of being an interiors photographer that I get to spend my days in spaces which one otherwise wouldn’t normally get to experience, it’s just a perk of the job I guess, but don’t get me wrong I do truly feel privileged, especially when the interior is as extraordinary as this apartment of the Parisian designer Jean Louis Deniot . The apartment is actually relatively small, but that didn’t stop Jean Louis from full on the grandeur. The interior decorative finishes are truly jaw-dropping. There are so many hidden cupboard and stowaway places which you can’t at first see which means that there is no clutter around meaning that the spaces are easy on the eye as there are no distractions to halt the journey. The spaces were a pleasure to photograph, and it was mainly thanks to the attention to detail which had gone into the design of each room.

Above is a detail photo of the hidden doorway from the hallway into the kitchen, hidden doors are nothing new in French interior designed spaces I know but in this interior the effect is used to it’s maximum, it actually took us a while to find the kitchen even though we knew it was there prior to our visit as it was a must-have on our list of places we needed to photograph.

The way the paint effect has been continued on to the ceilings of the spaces means that the interiors visually seem to have no end, they just continue above you, again the lack of visual breaks made creating the images a joy and so easy to capture, I was a very happy interiors photographer that day for sure.

And so to the end of the small tour, the bedroom, totally love the sculpture on the wall, especially how it reflects the daylight, without which we interiors photographers would be lost, well me at least. Daylight is such an important part of any design and capturing it, the way it plays in the space is such a large part of what I am working hard to convey in the images I create for my clients, and that will be the subject of the next installment.

What’s it all about? Well, I’m not an Interior Designer, although over the last 27 years working in photography I have spent quite a lot of time working with interior designers, capturing their work in a 2d medium, not as easy as it sounds believe me. Because it’s not just an image of a room we are trying to reproduce it’s the feeling of being in the interior itself, the atmosphere the essence of the space and the way that space can influence your mood. Wow, it’s all getting very ethereal and deep but that’s what we, I am trying to do when I shoot interiors for clients. Be those the designers of the spaces or the makers of the items you find in the interior. So my plan with this blog from here on in is to explain what I think about the art, ( here I go again getting deep ), because I do believe it’s an art, of capturing the essence of the interiors I have photographed over the years, so stay tuned.

the white house

House report on the redesign of a Dalston House by http://macdonaldwright.com, Photography Graham Atkins-Hughes

No not that ‘White House’ this white house, or should I say the Wright House as this home was a redesign by James of Macdonald Wright Architects  for his family. Now as anyone who knows me would tell you that white interiors are not always my thing, you just have to look at our own home to see what I mean. But this home which was shot with Victoria Tunstall  has always been one of my fav shoots. Of course because of what’s been going on with the other ‘White House’ these images sprang to mind and instantly cheered me right up. Hope you like it too!

BeNow_001

The short film I co wrote and directed BE NOW is in competition this week in #LasVegasLiftOff online festival.

LiftOff says ‘So many times our film festival has tended to stay away from these types of poetically narrated memoir-esq music videos, but for all the right reasons we knew that BE NOW was special’

See if you agree vegas-online.lift-off-festivals.com and vote in the comments section if you do, it would mean the world to me and everyone who work with me..
