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.
Steve Trims Show Sheep
Steve Trims Show Sheep..yeah try saying it after a couple of glasses of Scrumpy!
Liz Steve Rowe’s wife messaged me to see if Steve’s slightly unusual passion might be of interest to my Life In A Somerset Landscape Project and of course I was intrigued to find out more and we agreed to arrange something.
Storytelling In Somerset
In early August I posted out on social media that I was looking for people to capture lifestyle portraits of for my project Life In A Somerset Landscape.
The response was impressive and I found myself having a difficult time responding to everyone that reached out but Im glad to say I did out of simple courtesy.
In August shortly after my social media appeal, I captured Melanie Deegan but since then It’s been a slow burner arranging shoots in between what has been a very busy summer with assignments.
