Finally finished all the outdoor shots for the book commission, 20 Amazing Plants and Their Practical Uses by Rachel Corby. Spent the morning at Cirencester Organic Farm shop where Norah Kennedy was giving a workshop. Norah is a willow worker living in Stroud who kindly let me photograph at the event. When I set off this morning there was alot of snow on the ground and it was really cold. During the shoot there were some snow flurries, but the light was nice and soft. Norah has some amazing pieces and amazing skills, extreemly friendly and accomodating too.
Now its captioning and keywording time and getting them all in to Lightroom 3 before getting them off to the publishers. Good time to be doing this as its bitterly cold outside and snowing but will make for some good seasonal shots tomorrow.
It has been a pleasure working with all the amazing craftsmen this year and to see their passion and love for their craft, have been lucky enough to see some truly amazing works and meet some very inspirational people, thanks.
Will be finishing the commission in the next few weeks, by early January, as the rest are studio shots.
Thanks to all who I have had the pleasure working with this year, it has been a truly rewarding and busy one. Looking forward to a little break over the festive Season and then to a wonderful 2011 working with existing editors, clients and new commisssions.
