Clytha Castle is a Grade 1 Listed Historic Building, part of the Landmark Trust’s portfolio of holiday homes. It was built as a folly in 1790 before falling into disrepair and refurbished by the Trust from 1974. This commission is part of an ongoing relationship with the Landmark Trust.
The brief required:
A range of images illustrating both the exterior and interior of the property.
Photography sympathetic to the heritage and traditional style of the property
A set of images that would encourage and invite visitors.
A realistic impression of what visitors would expect on approaching and entering the building.
My response to the brief:
A classical approach using corrected perspective and conventional compositional techniques such as framing and use of foreground
An impression of interior space within the accommodation.
An inviting look of comfort and a light airy feel to the property.
Strong use of the trees and other vegetation around the property to add context and an ‘intimate’ enclosed feeling.
Panoramic shots were used on a number of the exterior profiles to emphasise the scale and context of the building.
