Perks of the job

Day 4 of the Mount Juliet shoot entailed another very diverse mix of images !!

We kicked off with the restaurant/function room where our brief was to capture the striking ceiling plus windows. The big thing with this type of image is the placement of tables and chairs to suit the camera…

.. so inevitably there’s a lot of pushing and shoving of furniture…

.. but we slowly got there, as Marie worked on the table setting…

Staff adding the finishing touch – conveying both ‘service’ and also to help demonstrate the scale/perspective of the room…

Next up was the exterior of the house…

The hall/lobby has some striking murals and a beautiful fireplace…

Plus the local fishing is first class here…

.. hence our cheerful angler chatting to a member of staff to complete the story.

It’s always a pleasure to do food shots…
