A cross over between Interior Design & Photography


STAND AND DELIVER …..

As you might imagine this engagement was my idea of bliss, a cross over between two of my favorite topics and my client hired me because of my … well quite frankly “out-there” style of photography .. So here are some of the pictures …. 


MAY THE DEVIL WITH IN YOU …


SHINE ON HARVEY MOON …

These photo’s were to promote Hennessy Antiques re-launch of his massive collection of ‘object d’art’ destined for the largest South African Antiques Trade Fair. They were to be shipped from the UK in three massive containers.


DO NOT WEEP … SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED .. I AM YOURS … 


BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR ….

The pictures were shot in a massive two storey warehouse, with two specialist cabinet makers madly polishing and cleaning the furniture … It was a cold April 2014 … And the stench of the liquid polish pervaded the atmosphere … 


THREE ANGELS … SAY NOTHING …. WE WILL KNOW! …


GREEN WITH ENVY … ‘SUP UP’  CHUCK .. 


BE SEATED …. AND THEN I SHALL BEGIN …. 


WAXING LYRICAL … 


I AM NO DUMB BLONDE …. 

I particularly like these shots, the brief from the client being “make them dramatic and bring out the spirit of the furniture’s character”, if you like bring them alive … This gave me the scope I relish and artistic licence - free rein with a still life ..   


IF WE MOVE TOGETHER WE CAN GET OUT OF HERE …. ALIVE … ! THERE IS WINE, WOMEN & SONG TO BE HAD ..

A Christmas Blog .....
Photographs of Project Nordrach House, Somerset ...

I have endeavoured in this Ghostly Little Blog, to raise the Ghost of an idea, of the things I hold dear at this time of year! 
Which shall not put my dear readers out of good humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me ... (Hopefully!!) ... “Bah!!” Said Scrooge .... “Humbug!” ...

“If they would rather die?” Said Scrooge; “They had better do it and decrease the surplus population.”
 
“Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail “..... “Marley was dead: to begin with!”
 
“You may be an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of an underdone potato. Or indeed a festering Minced Pie?”


“No space of regret can make amends for one life’s opportunity missed.”
 
“Christmas is a poor excuse every 25th of December to pick a man’s pockets.” 
 
“Why do the spirits walk the earth, and why do they come to me?” (Really mine is a white wine!!)


“They are what they are, do not blame me!”

“I wear the chain I forged in life!” 

“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the past, the present and the future. And I will honour my friendship with you all my friends.” Thank you for the fun ....


There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour ....
 
I have had fun this year ... And I wish you all the best of Christmas ..... And a Happy New Year ....
