This week I finished a very lengthy job that saw me photographing 200 bottles of beer and 84 beer glasses. In the process I spent numerous hours shooting, used nearly an entire keg of beer to get the foamy head of the beer in the glasses (not shown), did a free re-shoot when it didn’t go as planned and finally, we finished and all turned out extremely well.
The below image is a combination of all 84 beer glasses. The idea was to photograph them on a pure white background, while keeping their lines intact and also to make sure the logos didn’t get lost, or overexposed. If the logos were overexposed they would be unsaleable. And I think we pulled it off nicely.

Being a professional photographer in England definitely has its benefits. One of the biggest being the spectacular locations I get to photograph.
On this occasion I was at Knole House in Kent photographing a gorgeous piece of art. A painting of King George III by Grimaldi. This is going to be part of a catalogue of small paintings that’s being put together.
Knole House is one of my favorite National Trusts and I’m extremely honored to have been able to photograph these priceless pieces of art.
Yesterday I had a very exciting photo shoot in Kent. My job was to photograph some very old and very expensive mini-paintings for an auction house. Normally the closest I get to these artifacts is a museum, but I was actually able to handle and admire these paintings. And how lovely they were. I photographed them using only natural light and although the convex glass proved difficult, the shoot turned out very well and my client was happy. I am told there may be many more like this to photograph in the future and I welcome them all. I am photographing history.
