Legion of the Stag, Somerset Medieval Fighting Group

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.

Storytelling In Somerset

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.

Close To Home

Close To Home

As I write this we are still in lockdown and like many, I’ve been keeping myself busy and flexing the creative muscles with a personal stills project called Isolate and the short film recently completed here.

 Despite being isolated to our homes we have been fortunate to have had some great weather (and light) during the last few weeks. This has been not only been a blessing but of course, frustrating as we can’t venture far to fully enjoy it.

It’s not in my nature to allow things in life to stand in my way or limit me so when the craving to film something came I decided to work with the imposed restrictions and get creative which is something that is often needed on shoots when issues arise.

Close to home is a short video which captures my son’s adapted training routine to keep fit and sharp ready for when the lockdown is lifted and the football season can resume.
The locations were all local to our home in rural Somerset.
