Although the majority of my work keeps me within the M25, I get plenty of assignments which take me further afield. And it’s funny how there are some parts of the country I return to again and again: Bristol for example, where I must have shot a dozen or more homes, North Norfolk, which I’ve recently revisited, and parts of rural Surrey, which seems to provide a wealth of interesting subject matter. But the one part of the country I’ve probably had more shoots in than any other outside London, must be the Cotswolds. From hotels such as Whatley Manor and Barnsley House, to countless honey-hued stone houses, shot both for designers, and for magazines. Here are just two, shot in the last couple of years. The first, is a handsome stone manor house in a small village, with interiors by Juliette Byrne.
Earlier this year, The English Home magazine sent me down to another pretty village to shoot a home designed by Alexander James, for the July 2016 issue.
