Sometimes in a really busy wedding season its important to reconnect and do things that keep you inspired and creative. The beginning of Autumn, one of my absolute favourite times. The trees are bursting with fruit/berries the colours are changing and the light is beautiful – and in this case the pigs are ready! My talented friend Adam Prest and I hooked up and went to a really beautiful quaint little village near where I live and often walk my dog. On my dog walk route I always notice these pigs in this area bursting with life and beauty.
Adam grew up on a pig farm and we had talked about doing a shoot inspired by Autumn and nature , thus the shoot came to life. Massive shout out to the extremely lovely and kind Neil & Glynis who the pigs belong to and who’s garden we kindly borrowed. Neil was also a star and kept the pigs fed with crab apples while we managed to get some shots. Adam also crafted a couple of stunning Autumn displays mixing seasonal tones and berries and as ever in Adam style putting them in found objects and bringing them to life.
This shoot was shot on my beloved contax 645 on Fuji & Kodak film. Scanned by the fab UK Film Lab.
