At the end of the summer 2020 I was commissioned by a local law firm Pardoes Solicitors to shoot a series of images for their new website that was under construction.
Locations were scouted and plans drawn up for the appropriate imagery needed to help illustrate the various parts of their business and brand.
The Roadblock, Never Ending Flood Somerset 2014
Many images bring back fabulous memories of a place or time and likewise a few can be a little painful to look back on.
During the winter of 2014 the UK had some extremely wet weather and Somerset was especially effected by severe flooding.
A Place To Pause
With the New Year celebrations finished I felt the need to head out onto the Somerset Levels to explore with the camera.
I decided to head back to the RSPB Nature Reserve at Ham Wall not too far from Glastonbury.
I came here a few weeks ago (see Mist By The Marsh blog post) when the area was shrouded in beautiful mist but didn’t have time to explore all the reserve.
Legion of the Stag, Somerset Medieval Fighting Group
A few days ago I completed another shoot for my project Life In A Somerset Landscape.
I had been told about a Medieval Fighting Group based in Ilminster Somerset that specialised in 12-14th century fighting re-enactments.
This sounded a perfect fit for the project and so I made a call to a chap called who ran the group called James to have a chat.
Mist By The Marsh
Another image from a recent series I created on a cold November morning on the Somerset Levels.
The main inspiration for heading out and creating this series was in fact the mist and frosty conditions themselves.
Winter in the Somerset landscape especially on the levels can be incredibly atmospheric and that is what I wanted to capture.
