Here’s a few of the photographs I recently took at a property near Newquay for upmarket estate agency, Savills. The images were shot over the course of 2 visits (due to bad weather on my initial visit).
The photos will be used in national press, online and in a glossy 8 page brochure.
The external shot through the trees proved to be the most challenging. Given the fact that there were trees very close to the front of the house I was unable to use my elevated mast to get a decent shot of the front elevation (there needs to be a reasonable distance between the camera and subject for an elevated shot to work, otherwise you just get a photo of the rooftop!) – so I had to go low down and through the trees (an angle I wouldn’t normally shoot). However, this angle threw up a few problems of it’s own – the difference in light levels inside and outside of the trees meant that I had to shoot several exposures and blend them in post-production to create a well-balanced overall exposure – images that utilize this technique are known as HDR photographs.
The interior of this property was a pleasure to photograph – beautiful books, artifacts & antiques adorned every room.
