Fire Spinner

The the most awesome sunset as a backdrop, these fire spinners really were on a blaze of action.

Capturing things like fire is a real delight. Seeing the licking flames frozen in space, really does just that its a living beast.

The heat was pretty incredible and the speed of the spinning was unbelievable, this flame roared!

Pride and Prejudice

By Jon Scrimshaw – Instinctive

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.

Marketing Photography

Summer of Imagination – Doddington Hall media and publications



















An image for magazine, press release and advertising – Doddington Hall

In this project, we provided model, styling, dress and flower crown using suppliers and customers that we have worked with, it’s great when relationships

start to build a team around your service. This was put together with a couple of days notice for press release, marketing materials and magazine publishing.

This and other images featured in leading County Magazines and publications for several months.

For press release, we’re always happy to shoot, edit and supply finished images as a same day service.

Marketing images can be stressful and time sensitive for businesses, as publishers entice businesses with fantastic discounted deals just before print runs.

We really don’t mind working to a same day service, in fact, we like the challenge.
