I’m still working through the photos I took on Thalatta a couple of months ago. These are a series of black and white shots of the evening routine they have on board – log books, games, reading and then to sleep in a hammock… Shot with only the available light coming from the ships lights (which wasn’t much!).
A photoshoot of the restaurant garden at The Henny Swan, Suffolk, capturing the last of the summer flowers on what was fortunately a beautifully sunny day. The garden has fantastic views of the River Stour, and right across to the fields beyond.
A shoot photographing the well-loved classic dishes; fish and chips and a well stacked burger and chips. A darker background and low angle helps show off the structural element of these two dishes. More food photography can be seen here.
An 8 page square format Christmas brochure designed for The Henny Swan, showcasing the four menus available over December through to January. An interior photo shoot of a table set up for Christmas provided images for use in the brochure, and a illustration of the building and surrounding landscape was created for use on the cover. The design of the brochure highlights the beautiful rural location, as well as the cosy interior with open fires and oil lamps – a perfect setting for a Christmas meal.
An interiors photo shoot of the beautifully restored Thames Sailing Barge Thalatta. With the help of a Heritage Lottery grant, Thalatta was restored to an ‘as new’ condition in 2012 (when she was the incredible age of 106!). The main sleeping and living area of the barge is in what was originally the cargo hold. A large central table is surrounded by hammocks and sea chests for 12 people. There are also three private cabins just off the main area, and further accommodation for the Skipper and crew is tucked away in the bow and stern.
Thalatta is owned by the East Coast Sail Trust, and for the last 40 years has been run as a sail training boat for children. Thalatta can be booked for private use as well as by schools. More information on that can be found here. My graphic design work for the East Coast Sail Trust can be seen here.
