Commercial: The Stonhouse Beer Garden

This has been part of a recent project for a local Company, The Beer Garden Co from Bridport Dorset (Link)

They are great at what they do, Proper handmade wood gardens and furniture. If you need anything its well worth a call. In total I shot 5 pubs in london for them and then a few local ones will be covered soon. 4 of the pubs are owned by the Three cheers pub co (Link) , A lovely chain that have clearly put a lot of effort into making  a bespoke and memorable chain. And now with some top quality beer gardens to match!

Here are just a couple of images from the Beer Garden at the Stonhouse

As you can see its a lovely little garden tucked away in London, A great escape for an amazing cocktail

The whole construction of the garden looks great, a real testament to how much attention goes into the design from Ross and the guys at the beer garden co, And I seriously love those tables, they look and feel amazing in the flesh.

Landscape Photography: London At Night

This image here was shot while in london shooting beer gardens for a client.

I had just finished shooting at the Fellow in Kings cross when walking back to the car and came across this scene, too good to miss I set up the tripod and shot just one frame.

I love london at night and its one I still want to shoot properly, perhaps soon Ill be able to get out and fill up on city scenes.

Wedding Photography: Cantley House Woking

In april I was in woking at the wonderful Cantley house, A lovely secluded venue with some great gardens and indoor space, Who will also cater for marquee weddings. I cannot recommend this venue enough, The day went smoothly and the wedding planners were excellent and their efforts were amazing. http://www.cantleyhotel.co.uk

In this post will be a list of suppliers who were present on the day too, and they were all great, especially the Pro Slot racing (giant scalectrix) which kept everyone entertained.

The Brides Arivval was in this wonderfull 1930’s badsworth from christophers.co.uk, As you can see it looked great on the day,

CantleyHouseWokingwedding-10The Signing of the Register, This was the Posed shot so don’t worry i wasn’t shooting what i wasn’t meant to, the registrar’s have this ”signing” one, complete with fake names so it looks great

Commercial Food Photography: The Avalon Alfresco Menu

Earlier last month I was in london, Shooting some amazing food at the Avalon Pub in Clapham.

Its a wonderfull pub with a brand new beer garden, build by the Beer Garden Co in dorset. It is a great place to go to eat and have a drink. We set up a shoot on the long feasting table in the garden, with the view to shooting their new party/alfresco menu. With lots of smaller dishes and some colourful cocktails to shoot, I chose to stay away from some of the traditional aspects of food photography and shoot in a candid feel. This in my mind would add to the alfresco feel of the shoot.

The feature piece of the shoot was their new 1 meter pizzas! yes 1 meter, They look very impressive and taste excellent too. Boards handmade by another Dorset company.

All of these were shot with natural light, it was a over cast day anyway, but a large sail above the scene provided some lovely soft diffused light.

Take  a look these images, and why not go along and taste some for your selves See here http://www.theavalonlondon.com
