So lovely to see the first bottles of The Grange, English Sparkling Wine and even more wonderful to be commissioned to shoot it. I’ve documented the process from bud to bottle. More from the story can be seen here: https://www.tombunning.com/the-farmers-year/
Hepple Gin - Walter Riddell
Walter grew up among the trees at Hepple and has now returned to his home in the North with his family. With a breadth of understanding from propagation to philosophy he is responsible for sustainably developing spirits and the propagation of its wild ingredients. A real gentleman . . .
Hepple Gin - The harvesting of Green Juniper.
Earlier this month I travelled to the Moorland Spirit Co. distillery - makers of Hepple gin - in the Northumbrian moors. Two joyous days followed . . . Wild juniper harvesting, the perfect martinis at ‘The Bothy’ at sunset and searching for ceps and beefsteak mushrooms for a supper of Valentine’s ‘Very Old Fashioned Pie’ with fine glasses of red. What a job. @valentine_warner @walter_at_hepple@nickstrangeway @moorlandspiritco and @gardenchris82 I can’t thank you enough

It’s always a pleasure to be asked to shoot for Levis, they’ve been my most loyal client and I’ve been working with them for what must be coming up to 10 years now. Earlier in the year, I shot these images for Lot No.1, spending time with the wonderful people who custom make their bespoke jeans.

The stunning colours that appear upon the rock formations at Chapel Porth, Cornwall.
The Waveney, Suffolk. There really is nothing like standing on the banks of a gin clear river on a hot summer's day, eyeing up your prey, pondering on what herbs to use, what wine to wash it down with. Then you end up going home empty handed and settle on what’s decaying in the fridge. Doesn’t stop you trying though does it . . . Time for another go!
New work with traditional Suffolk thatcher Nick Walker. See the full story in the 'Crafted' section on the site.
