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.
Ahead of warping up shop for the end of year break, I have been going through the archive to pull together some of my favourite Christmas images, just to get even more in the mood for some festive fun, I hope you and yours have a great holiday period, and like me you’re looking forward to an exciting 2017.
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!
Well on a cold and frosty morning such as we had this morning, you’d be forgiven for considering if today was a duvet day, but sadly not for most of us. So to warm up your eyes I have collected together some cozy images from the archive, hope you like them and they give you that warm feeling you’re in need of.
Here’s a splash of colour for you and your interiors on the dreary and rainy day in London, interiors shot for our wonderful client Dulux, see more inspiration here @LCM and you could also check out the site of Lucy Gough who along with her very happy team worked her styling magic. Hope you like them.
Come in, the pallet is super cool, here are a few images I shoot recently for our great client Minale and Mann an award winning end to end architectural design agency based in Battersea London, check out their work, it’s very stylish in it’s simplicity, as we all know less is always more, but difficult to pull off, form what I’ve seen of their output they are very consistent. These and other images from the work we have done together will be getting added to my Luxe Interiors folio, very soon.
Hi there we have just been adding some new images to the location78.com web site, showing new views of the rooms with some of the new accessories which the wonderful Jo has been adding over the last few months. swing by and check it out
No I’m not talking about the British pop trio from the 80’s, although there is a tenuous link, as those boys originally formed their band ‘Living in a Box’ in the home of British steel, Sheffield and this box, created by the team at Minale + Mann is to enclose a single cast steel staircase. Bit of a challenge to photograph a glass box, but anyone that’s ever been on a shoot with me will testify that I do love a bit of a photographic conundrum, hope you like the results, and if you’re looking for a stunning staircase get yourself in touch with the MM team.
