From Russia with Love.

It’s always nice to hear how our work being used, even if we never actually see it – however, sometimes we do – and whenever that happens, I do like to show it… as you may already know.

Anyway, recently we were asked about the use of some of our images that we had produced a number of years ago, as it seems Architectural Digest magazine in Russia wanted to use them.

So the agent who handled the deal, kindly sent me a pdf of the pages as seen in the magazine – so here is our latest published work in the July 2016 issue of Architectural Digest magazine…

And in the August 2016 issue…

Which I talked about shooting here: It’s a tough old job – back in July 2011.

So way to go Libby – who can be here in her kitchen…

It’s a tough old job…

.. but someone has to do it – as the saying goes.

This week took us back to the Antrim coast again, to shoot a fabulous old converted coach house, The Shola. Which was originally built around 1860 and has been lovingly restored and extended by Mary & Arthur McAllister.
The sun shone throughout the day, which was great; however, the one image we needed it most for, was the exterior – to highlight the beautiful stonework.
We were determined to capture this… but as with most things in life, the simplest of things can often be the hardest.

In this case, the sun didn’t hit the front until well after 6 o’clock – and by that stage, it was starting to drop behind the big trees to the right…

.. so this one simple looking shot, actually took over an hour to capture.
However, to help pass the time while we were waiting, Mary very kindly brought us out a glass of red wine.
Yes I know, it’s a tough old job… but someone has to do it Smile

Inside, Mary & Arthur…

.. combined the coziness of the coach house with stylish decor – and if all goes well, you should be able to see all the images printed in one of the leading interior magazines, later on, this year.

A tough one, but a lovely one – so big thanks to Mary & Arthur for making us feel so welcome and inviting us in to capture The Shola.
