TRAVEL & PLACE | Sudeley Castle & Gardens.

Sudeley Castle & Gardens is just eight miles from Broadway, set against the dramatic backdrop of the Cotswolds, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Sudeley Castle has played an important role in the history of England for well over 1000 years. I had the privilege of visiting this beautiful place last August, spending a few hours walking around making pictures.

The castle’s award winning garden’s are taken care of by a small team of gardeners that work tirelessly throughout the year. with the ethic to manage the gardens in a way which benefits the insects and wildlife of the area, with a current emphasis on encouraging the bee population.

STYLE & STORIES | Paul Scott

It was on the foreshore of Brisbane Waters just outside Gosford on the NSW Central Coast Australia, for the location to shoot these images of up and coming fashion designer Paul Scott. My idea was inspired by the images in the European fashion mags that I so love to look at as the photographers seem to have more freedom in self creative input than they do in say Australian or American pages.

Paul who has had a showing at Australian fashion week and a spread in GQ came along with couple of pieces he designed and made himself, and of course his great looking beard that just seemed to set the look off.

TRAVEL & PLACE | The Rennie bridge, Stoneleigh Abbey.

Apparently this bridge, designed by Scottish engineer John Rennie (1761-1821) and built over the river Avon west of Stoneleigh Abbey, Warwickshire England, is a possible site to the murder of a number workmen around 1812-1815 – within the lifetime of Jane Austen, who was Austen’s relative Chandos, first Lord Leigh of the second creation (1791-1850), a Romantic poet and Whig essayist, he was charged with two of the murders.
