The CLIENT

Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, UK

THE BRIEF

The aim of this photography assignment was to photograph New Place – the garden at the site of William Shakespeare's family home – capturing the spring displays of tulips, as well as the garden's wonderful sculptures.

THE SHOOT

I visited New Place twice, both in the late afternoon/early evening and the following morning in order to make the most of the best light, and also to have an opportunity to photograph the gardens with few visitors about.

THEMES

William Shakespeare's home from 1597-1616, New Place gardens showcase several sculptures depicting characters from his plays.

SOCIAL MEDIA IMAGES

As well as 90 high-res images, suitable for print, additional sets of images were provided, cropped and re-sized for use on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

 

“We commissioned Will to take some photos of the gardens at Shakespeare's New Place for our summer press pack. He is professional, efficient and has the ability to translate even the briefest of briefs into amazing photographic results. We now have a beautiful set of images that truly encapsulates the spirit of the New Place gardens and wouldn't hesitate to call on Will again.”
