Commercial Photography Somerset
Just when I think I can rest a little and have some consistency in the jobs I take on and some down time, another door opens and something new and exciting comes along – there’s not many jobs that offer that unanticipated treat which keeps life varied. As some of you know, I relish personal work and looking ahead to new creative challenges. My most recent working with Somerset based felt designer Gladys Paullus. writing a book (due out early ’14) and prior to that, my trip to Rwanda which very much gave me in an insight into the power that photography holds. Photography evolves of course so I try to keep myself fresh and open to new ideas yet remaining consistent in my style. If you have never been to At the Chapel, Bruton, Somerset, you just need to stand in the front door to experience the tickle of the senses both visually and through the smell of the in house bakery. Visually you are treated to a building which has been nurtured under the artistic eye of Catherine Butler, who with her partner Ahmed, has given Bruton significant kudos through their style and offerings in the way of creating a restaurant/hotel with bold, calming effect. Catherine, despite having quite definite ideas, gave me the freedom to play and create, to work with staff and put images together which hopefully, give the new website a visual reality to the true atmosphere of the Chapel and the quality of the food and service offered.
The simplicity of the interior is appealing to me, little nuggets of colour here and there, and, the ecclesiastical windows offering treats of light at various times of day. So, I was thrilled when Catherine offered me a collaboration to work with her on new marketing material, in return for the offer of a book launch/exhibition within the The Chapel. I couldn’t think of anywhere more suitable to showcase my work. Watch this space for Catherines new site and dates as to the book release to be held here.
