Now that my Table Talks project is taking shape, i decided to rephotograph Christine outside her actual home. Unlike the others portraits I have taken for this, the weather was cold and wet, so i wanted to capture that warm cosy homely feeling.

I have always admired this house. It is very ‘grand’ for Bridgetown. I actually shot Richard Trigwell for Countryman in it. Anne is Richard’s daughter and together with her husband, they work hard in the grounds to make the exterior as beautiful as it is. Anne wanted me to photograph it in full bloom when she is hosting an open garden day, so i may go back and reshoot.

I run past Maureen and Derek’s house most mornings with my dogs. It really is the perfect idyllic Bridgetown house. Maureen is a music teacher and works from home, and as this was photographed in the day, i thought it was apt that it was just her.
I decided to use flash and natural light, and i think it works really well, allowing the subject to stand out without taking away from the environment.
