How It's Done
One image of a notable British landmark for each letter of the alphabet: that was the concept. The finished set of 26 would then be used for a special edition of Royal Mail stamps; it was a nice job to land. I was drafted in to shoot ten of the collection over the course of a year, which took me around the UK from Ironbridge to Edinburgh Castle and Downing Street to County Armagh. Which locations were picked was down to the client; I had no say, and some strange choices duly ensued. The south-western counties of Dorset, Devon and Cornwall didn’t get a look in, which was inexcusable to me. So when the time came to shoot Bath I was relieved to be working locally. I knew it was a location with strong visual potential, and one dripping with historical interest, plus the luxury of working just up the road meant I could piece together the shoot methodically.
