Lifestyle Portrait – The Roaring 20’s

Lifestyle Portrait – The Roaring 20’s

Lifestyle portrait session from a bygone era

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.

Roaring 20's
Here are a few of my personal favourite images from the lifestyle portrait session that show the glorious beauty of the house. However, I recommend viewing the “Roaring 20’s” presentation above for the full experience.

Here are some of my sketches created prior to the shoot, which also helped me decide the props I would need to source.
