I spent a magical, hot summer’s day imagining and reenacting life in the 1920’s. Creating such a wide array of lifestyle portrait scenes would have been impossible without the wonderful Walter’s Wardrobe event team, our four amazing models and the stunning location.
The beautifully designed Stokesay Court in Shropshire, a home installed cutting edge technology of the time, acted as an inspiring stage that encouraged ideas to flow freely. The majority of my ‘stories in an image’ were pre-planned many weeks before the shoot. Even so, many more stories came to life on the day.
I feel particularly lucky to be one of a rare few to have had the opportunity to professionally photograph inside this interestingly atmospheric home. The only other production (to date) to be shot at the privately owned Stokesay Court (and within the grounds) is the highly acclaimed movie Atonement.
