It was a lovely spring day when I travelled down the motorway to meet a very special lady. Julia and I had been emailing for several months arranging the day, and I was so excited it had finally come. Julia is a landscape artist, and her work is breathtakingly good. When she asked me if I could capture some special business portraits for her, I felt completely honoured.
Julia's bottom of the garden studio was the perfect backdrop for some portraits of her in action. The wooden studio encapsulates Julia's personality and brand through it's blue exterior and beautiful displays inside. I concentrated on not only photographing her in action, but also on capturing all the little details of her work space. All of these things show off Julia's personality and style, and are the perfect images to show off the unique aspects of her brand. I photographed as she worked on a current commission, delicately adding beautiful flowers to a painting of an English bay.
After we had captured some portraits in her studio we travelled to a little village near by to capture some portraits with the natural landscape as a backdrop. Julia's work is inspired by the moors of Yorkshire as well as the coast, so this was the perfect setting.
