Relaxed Club House Style

During day 3 of the Mount Juliet shoot, we worked solely in the Clubhouse area.
Once again our brief was to convey a sense of warmth and atmosphere within the informal and relaxed context of the Clubhouse.

First up was a twin bedroom…

.. often booked by golfers – hence the accessories…

.. because as Marie says: not only do props need to tell a story, but they also need to be color coordinated – spot the pops of red !!

Next up was the main bar…

.. which I knew would be a tough one to light and include people in, especially with that dark wood ceiling – so it was all lights in for this one…

.. while Marie organized a perfect latte, a couple enjoying a drink and a guy having a pint – all very typical of the clientele!

For the conservatory restaurant, it was all hands to the pumps when the overcast skies lifted for a brief spell – quite literally ‘a window of opportunity’. Simplicity was the key to this shot…

.. symmetry and drawing the eye through this very pleasant area.

The member’s bar has quite similar decor & ambiance to the main bar…

.. but with more than a suggestion of the “19th hole”.

Last up was the golf shop – it’s a large well-stocked shop so our goal was to show just that – but as the light was fading fast…

.. we had to work quickly here, so while Stuart & I worked on the lighting…
