Interior designer, Aisha Subhani, commissioned me to take photos of some beautiful spaces that she recently curated in a house off the Bishops Avenue and in Hampstead. Here is a selection of the photographs she chose for her new website of these two locations.
I am often asked to take 'before and after' shoots. I capture the space before it is developed, but often, by the time the job is done, the last thing a client's client wants is another person - let alone a photographer - back into the house invading their beautiful, new space.
The space below is a 'before' shoot of bedroom, bathroom and study for a young adult. Let's wait and see if we are invited back...
Here, the client asked me to photograph in two locations after major redevelopment work. The architect was so pleased with the photos, he subsequently bought some for his website. Below are the descriptions of the two projects:
Barnsbury N1 - This interesting project was a renovation and modernisation of a neglected Victorian terraced house in Barnsbury. The clients undertook significant structural work to open and remodel the lower and ground floors and fitted new bathrooms and kitchen. Interiors and styling throughout were updated with an emphasis on a calm overall scheme with splashes of colour and opulence.
Barnsbury N1 - This project included major structural works to a large Victorian villa, opening up the entire lower ground floor allowing natural light to flood in. The new layout provided more space for modern family living and made the most of the garden space and beautiful, easy to maintain planting.
This client has a beautiful colmbage (half-timbered) barn in Normandy, France, that they rent out for most of the year. They wanted to improve on the number of visitors to the holiday listings website and do justice to the newly renovated property. They commissioned me to take photos. Since the new listing, they have had many more rentals. Phew!
