We are so proud to photograph for the likes of National Trust and Doddington Hall.
Our briefs are often ‘brief’ and we are left to our own creative devices to capture the images needed for projects, media, magazine, marketing and press release.
This work often is low light photography, never exceeding 500 lumen of cool LED light to protect fine works of art.
Flash photography is prohibited in these places and wherever possible we will only use the natural light available. NEVER using flash, however brief.

This shows Belton House illuminated for the first time in years. It’s a stunning Stately home and a fine piece of Architecture.
When I was asked to cover this performance of Pride and Prejudice at Belton House with The Chapter House Theatre Company, I was aware it was a sunset to night performance.
On explaining how epic the house would look illuminated as backdrop, I was delighted the team at Belton agreed and installed the lights.
This performance really benefitted from this decision and the visitors could not stop photographing it, so great PR too.
Positioned in the darkness during an interval, I captured this image using a slow shutter to respect peoples privacy with a little blurring.
Being the photographer I am, I then assisted families in capturing their group shots on there own phones before the second performance.
