Anyone who lives or works in Somerset will know what a unique and beautiful place it is. Being a photographer who is lucky enough to be based in the county, having the benefit of photographing Somerset weddings and location portraiture is a particularly delightful pleasure. However, much of my commercial and corporate photography work takes me out of the county, often to London, so this particuar job gave me the opportunity to carry out some event photography closer to home!
This particular job goes back a couple of weeks – a sunny and beautiful Saturday evening in Somerset, where I was taking PR and event photographs of the Porlock Summer Ball. This charity event, hosted by BBC presenter Martin Roberts of popular property show ‘Homes Under the Hammer’, was being held in support of a local school and also patronised by Somerset’s driving tourism force, the Somerset Tourist Association.
With a sumptuous dinner, dancing, a charity raffle and the wine flowing – accompanied by stunning views - attendees surely had a fantastic time! The PR photography of the event has appeared locally in the press and will also be featured in Somerset Life in the society pages.
I met Belinda last year when I asked her to take the photos for a book cover - I was delighted that she agreed to help! During the shoot she was creative, thoughtful and made me feel totally at ease. Everyone comments on the photograph and I would highly recommend her to everyone.
