We were asked in a comment last week about why we emphasise the photographer when it’s the stylist or the designer or the architect or the great home or the stylish owner that is the main contributor to the beautiful rooms we feature. We feature the photographers for a number of reasons – a) it’s their website from which we are taking the pictures (obvious reason for praising their work) and b) it’s an incredible talent, the ability to take gorgeous photos that make you covet a product or dream of owning a room you have never seen with your own eyes. Photographers make a picture on a page reach out and tug at your heart strings. Yes the room is beautiful, the owners have great taste, the designer/architect is a genius and the stylist makes it just perfect but if I took the photo you would never know how fabulous it really was. I’m a shocking photographer. The talented professionals we feature bring these spaces to life. Their tools are their camera, the light, their appreciation of angles, colour, composition and every other contributing factor but it’s their eye, their super talent that brings it all to life. Simon Bevan is one such photographer. Enjoy!
