Farley through the lens : The talented photographers behind our gallery images

Featured Image

Trying to choose which beautiful images to use in our galleries was a tricky task. We think we’ve put together a selection that shows the range of our collection and the multitude of ways in which the individual pieces can be used. We couldn’t have done this without the help of the talented photographers that we’ve worked with over the years. Here’s a run down of the individuals and teams that have made up the bulk of our gallery images. As our stock evolves, so do our images, and no doubt new faces will be added, so check back if you want to know more.

Martin Brigdale www.martinbrigdale.com has been a friend and client of ours for years and is our go to man for most of our photography needs. His main area of expertise is food photography and styling and he’s trusted to photograph the delicious food made by Michel Roux, amongst others. As well as scrummy dishes, there’s not much that Martin can’t photograph and bring out its best, he even managed to make us all look lovely for our Meet The Team page! Here are a few of Martin’s shots:

We first met Kate Nielen www.katenielen.com at an event at the Royal Opera House and since then our paths have crossed on several styled shoots and wedding events. Kate’s attention to detail is what we most love about her work and she always takes the time to capture every element of an event. Here are some of her snaps to prove it:

We are constantly striving to improve the imagery of stock on our website. We were recently helped in our efforts by the late Henry Curtis-Williams. Henry was a talented young photographer who we had the privilege to work with for a short time. Our beautiful bed cover images and the ones of our prints and watercolours are all thanks to him. Henry also snapped some gorgeous interiors shots and event images, here are some examples of his work:

Nat Davies www.natdavies.com is another of our favourite photographers , his beautiful shots and calm personality make him a pleasure to work with. He’s also been a huge help to our own budding David Bailey, giving him all the tips and tricks of the trade. Although Nat’s specialism is food photography, he’s taken some great interiors shots for us, here are a couple of our favourites:

We supplied some pieces for a styled, wedding themed shoot at Le Manoir aux Qait’Saisons which was shot by Weddings By Nicola and Glen www.weddingsbynicolaandglen.com who focused on all the details of the day as well as capturing the beauty of the surroundings. Take a look:

Carey Sheffield www.careysheffield.com was the photographer on hand to capture all the glamorous goings on at the Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire’s Wedding Open Day back in 2015. Her reportage style shots were great and definitely caught the atmosphere of the event and its elegant setting:
