i’m so excited to be going to the wondrous “Giffords Circus” at Stadhampton green tomorrow with the boys, we went last year, i was doing some shooting with Abigail Ahern, as she had made over Nell’s then new caravan in the Ahern stylie as i am sure your all familiar with by now but if your in doubt click here to see her blog and there are shots we took of the caravan interior below. last year the Gifford’s Circus Troop did a version of War & Peace, a bit heavy for light entertainment you might think, but when you include the elements of circus craft from around the world, juggling, fire eating, trapeze, acrobatics and horseman ship, not to forget the clown MC with his pants on fire, you can get a flavour of what I am talking about, it is truly magical and our boys Digby 6 & Kit 4 definitely agree, I can’t wait …………..
It’s been two weeks since my last blog, that sounds like something I said in a confessional when I was 10 years old, hope I don’t get given penance, because I haven’t be slacking I’ve been very busy shooting lots of fab,(if I might say), interior photography projects. These images above and below will soon be added to my project “Transitional Spaces” which I started last year when I was shooting in Berlin last September, but I got distracted by my other on going project “In Memory of…” which I also have new images to add to when I get a chance. Enough waffle I hear you cry! These amazing Stairs are in the building where Jean-Christophe Aumas, he has amazing taste his apartment has been shot lots of times and been blogged about I knowAbigail with whom I was working has definitely spoken about it before. we are working together on an exciting new project to be released in the spring, can wait to share the pictures, we have photographed some amazing interiors and they just keep coming, thanks Abi, if you’d like to see Jean-Christophe’s work click here “Voici-Voilà”, i am sure if these stairs could talk the could tell some tall tails
Well last year while the streets of London were smouldering, and bracing themselves for another night of riots, I was enjoying the sunshine in the Cotswolds and hospitality of Juliette Barrell of “Wesley-Barrell” @ her unusual curved eco house while on an interior photographic commission shooting for “Homes and Gardens“. The drystone curved wall in the above image is what greets you as you arrive on the driveway, very striking given the architectural style of the rest of the village it is surrounded by. The curve in the building I seem to remember Juliette telling us was to maximise the warming rays of the sun, making the building as environmentally low impact as possible. You can see the whole house story starting on page 51 of the July issue of “Homes & Gardens”, hope you enjoy it,
Another house from a New York trip, this time not from Manhattan or an NYC neighbourhood but from the Hampton’s the idyllic Sag Harbor to be exact, this house was down the end of an unassuming road, and tucked away down an equally unassuming short drive way, maybe it started life as an out building once upon a time, I just loved the wooden shingle cladding from the moment I saw the recce pictures, I will be up in the Hampton’s on my next trip to NYC for a few days shooting in Bridgehampton & Southampton, so hopefully some more beautiful American exteriors to add soon
Yes that’s right, watch out the mean streets of Dalston, I have joined the ever swelling ranks of two wheelers on the roads of London. I just bought myself a beautiful retro Raleigh bike from the lovely people @lock7cyclecafe on the canal bridge by broadway market. He or she can’t quite decide on the gender of my new two wheeled friend, is a dark Indian Red according to Colford.com, with new cream tyres. I will be trying very hard not to be a fair weather cyclist, but the newly fitted basket can’t carry all of my interior photographer kit,as anyone of my clients will tell you I tend to have quite a bit of stuff with me on shoot days, so please don’t expect to see me turning up for my next interior or fashion lifestyle shoot on him/her. Once the gender has been decided an official christening will be held, if you’d like to get acquainted, with the bike that is, let’s meet for coffee to chat about making pictures. Suggestions on the gender gratefully received …………
