My client, The National Trust, wanted images to show the seasonal aspect of their fantastic site. Such as these beautiful snowdrops shot on a sunny February weekend. The images were for publicity, such as press photographs for newspapers, and also website and brochure images like the one used above.
If you haven’t been to Fountains Abbey, you really should. It’s in North Yorkshire, between Harrogate and Ripon, and is frankly stunning, and makes a great day out. If you’re that way inclined, you can even dress up as a monk and have a wander round!

Cistercian abbey, elegant Georgian water garden and medieval deer park
For centuries people have been drawn to this inspiring place.
From humble beginnings the magnificent abbey was established by devout monks seeking a simpler existence. The atmospheric ruins that remain are a window into a way of life which shaped the medieval world.
When the socially ambitious John Aislabie inherited Studley Royal, he set about creating an elegant water garden of mirror-like ponds, statues and follies, incorporating the romantic ruins into his design.
Green lawns stretch down to the riverside, a perfect spot for a picnic. Riverside paths lead to the deer park, home to Red, Fallow and Sika deer and ancient trees; limes, oaks, and sweet chestnuts.
One-of-a-kind, this special place is now recognised as a World Heritage Site.
