An interior stylist and photographer living in the Brecon Beacons

 

From a shoot I did just north of a town called Brecon in the Brecon Beacons, the house is called Herons Retreat as you can often see Herons from the garden looking into the arable farmland. #breconbeaconsholidaycottages #photography #photographer #lifestyle #garden #breakfast #breconbeacons #book #reading #stylist

A shot from a lovely little place called Crab Apple Cottage. Love the simple design here and the relaxing summery nature of the house when I was shooting. #interiors #breconbeaconsholidaycottages #Breakfast #design #lifestyle #interiordesign #photography #photographer

Pontfaen Barn Shoot & night sky

Lately I have been out and out a lot more with the weather improving as well as an influx in new properties for Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottages.

I get sent to a lot of places around Brecon and this new one called Pontfaen Barn in the hills above the historic town was amazing. Really loved shooting there. If you want to read more about my experience and see some more pictures. Head over to the BBHC blog and website and see for yourself, maybe even book a visit!

Here is a taster, shot around 9pm at night, the sky really is that amazing up here. Such fresh clean air too.

New Photographic Crush- Inga Powilleit


I stumbled upon a photographer, called Inga Poweilleit, who is quite new to me whilst thumbing through my April copy of Elle Decoration last week. She had done an interior shot of a house I was pretty impressed with, not just for technicality but interior design, colour and the essence of the series of shots. Looking at her website (link in the name above) I discovered more of her work and my appreciation for her was confirmed.

I really enjoy the way she merges the architectural side of photography with the human element of the inhabitants or their creators. You can have a minimalist approach to life and it still reflect your personality or you can be an eclectic, eccentric and cluttered person mixed in styles and colours. Whilst creating these portraits of people she hasn’t made them the center of attention, but side lined them and included them in to the architectural mass of the image. There are other images of her that I love as well which I am sure i will talk about in another blog. Go check out her work.
