Photography and Images:
Landmark commissioned 30 of their UK properties to be photographed so we had new and up-to-date images in the handbook. With properties stretching from Cornwall to the outer regions of Scotland, that is no easy task. Fortunately Paul Grundy and Jill Tate both architectural photographers were up to the task and took about 15 – 30 photos of each property. Some of the images showed a building in all its grandeur and others depicted intimate and beautiful details. My difficulty was that there was only space for two images of each property! It was a pleasure sifting through the images but so hard to choose only two photos. Fortunately some pages were double page spreads and Helen and I had ways and means to sneak in extra photos such as on the insides of the covers or in the introduction section. You can see examples of the photography above or have a peek at Paul’s website: www.paulgrundy.com and Jill’s website: www.jilltate.com.

Another aspect of dealing with images was to improve on some of the existing photography and in some cases, ‘paint’ the odd door or two which was now a different colour. I used Photoshop but also worked with another colleague, Meghan, who waved her magic wand – have a look at the examples of her work below – ‘now you see it, now you don’t’!
