French Connection Home-Wear

Interior photograph for French Connection Homewear by interiors photographer Graham-Atkins-Hughes

Hello peps!

Hope you’re well on this sunny but brisk Autumn day in London, well a least it’s not raining. That puts me in mind of all the unfortunate people who have been flooded out of their house, home and places of work, hope the water subsides soon.

Today I have added some of my most recent interior photography work for my good friends at French Connection Homewear, you can see more of the images here, hope you like them. We had great fun making these, with an amazing team as always, interiors styled by Amanda Smith-Corston set building by Jude Singleton and locations by Jacob at Love Locations.

I do love the use of poured concrete in interior design and architecture, I think that some people might think that it is a cold and possibly boring medium to live with, or indeed inside, but not me. Like most things made from organic substances, it’s with all the best will in the world never the same twice. That’s what I think is so beautiful about it. As you can see from this interior photography commission it photographs really well. So much so we went back to the location for the next season’s photography shoot

Hospitality Interior Photography by Graham Atkins-Hughes, for Virgin Atlantic

Well hello there! As you may have noticed I’ve been adding new content to my site over the last few weeks, and today I would like to draw your attention to my newest folio of interior photography focusing on the work I have been doing lately with hospitality interior clients. I have always from time to time shot photography for these types of commissions over the years but this is the first time I have gathered all of the images together into one portfolio specializing in these kinds of atmospheric interior photography projects.

I guess we all expect different things from the interior design of these types of spaces, for me, it’s rich warmth in the use of colours that the design team has used, I want to feel enveloped in comfort. Also, the fabrics and textures are something I look for, leathers, velvets. Interesting floor treatments are also something I would be looking out for. I love capturing these spaces in the interior photography commissions I undertake for this group of clients because the spaces are always otherworldly, something that you’re not likely to find in a regular interior. Hope you enjoy the images.

oldie and a goodie

GAH_Interior15_0016

Happy Friday to you all, hope you’ve been having a constructive day, working hard so to can with a clear conscience put your feet up for a well earned weekend off. Well I am in the process of having a reorganise on the old web site. While I am putting some of my latest work up I’m also adding back in some of my all time favourites. These images are one of those, this truly magical home belonging to Lorraine Kirk owner of a unique fashion store in Perry Street NYC, Geminola , we, Abigail Ahern & myself  were there to shot the living room for Abi’s 1st book Girls Guide to Decorating, I arrived before Abi as she was in the hotel sorting out the rest of our week shooting in NYC. I was blown away by the house, and had to use all my Irish Blarney to talk Lorraine into allowing us to stay a little longer than planned to shoot the rest of the house. This all happen back in 2008, see it is an oldie, but I remember it so clearly as if it were yesterday. I still love these images we made that day. Lorraine’s style is so distinctive, you can tell that everything is there because there is a reason for it to be there, and it just works, hope you like them as much as I do. My newly organised folio will be getting launched on Monday. Have a great weekend.

Winter Blues

French Connection Homeware AW15/16 001, Photographed by Graham Atkins-Hughes Interiors Lifestyle Photographer London
Wouldn’t you want the ‘winter blues’ if they looked like this? It’s my third anniversary shooting with French Connection – well 3 seasons anyway – so appropriately I have featured a fabulous blue leather sofa, designed for the ongoing collaboration with DFS – you knew that the ‘thing’ for a third anniversary is leather surely. Teamed with their amazing accessories, I think it’s a killer combination. I love the brass standard lamp, and under strict instructions, will be purchasing a couple for the missus
