An architectural photography assignment from architects Millar Howard Workshop to photograph Coopers Chapel, Slad Valley, Gloucestershire. This building sits at the bottom of a garden looking out over the slad valley towards Stroud. It provides a small meditative space for individual or group meeting. It is built using the local Cotswold Stone and timeber. Various important details were created in collaboration with the client, a wood carver, using some unusual and special woods.

Quince Tree Cottage, Rockness, Gloucestershire. Architect: Millar Howard Workshop

An assignment from architects Millar Howard Workshop to photograph Quince Tree Cottage in Rockness, Gloucestershire built in 2009. A large extension to an old Cotswold cottage. The architect’s idea was to build a new Cotswold stone building next to the original house and join the new and the old with a glazed link. Rather than try and match the stone of the original it was decided to build the new extension with a drystone facing to contrast the new and the old. Sliding folding doors open at a corner to allow the kitchen/dining room to spill out into the garden.

An assignment from architects Millar Howard Workshop to photograph their new shop design for Oeno Wines in Cirencester, Gloucestershire. The design centres around a new racking system incorporating storage and lighting. The idea developed with the client was to place the bottles in a large array and then light the bottle labels and the ‘barkers’ each with an individual LED. The shop is a celebration of a huge variety of wines sourced direct from the growers.

The main challenge photographically was to convey a sense of space in confined surroundings and deal with the very high contrast lighting environment whilst showing of the details and materials of the refined design.
