To photograph our winter collections we always look for interesting and often ancient buildings and interiors to host our shoot, somewhere full of atmosphere and filtered light. For Christmas 2021 we took up residence for four days at a tiny early 16th century gem of a building.
This white rendered cottage with three rooms, a huge attic and a lovely cottage garden has sat in the hamlet of Dragley Beck in Ulverston Cumbria for over 500 years. In the 18th century it was the humble birthplace and home of Sir John Barrow, a mathematician and arctic explorer.
Here are some snaps from behind the scenes at our shoot. Old flag floors, tables, chairs, lime mortared walls, shadow and light.
