Kate Fuller millinery

This was a commission to photograph hats made by Kate Fuller for the launch of her new website. Kate wanted images with the hats being worn – and two of her friends volunteered for the day. The garden looked fantastic, and I spent most of the day working in bare feet on the lawn. A good day at the office.

The bulk of the shoot was to document the collection of Kate's work from the past couple of years. I set up a studio in her enormous garage, which had large shelves down each wall. Kate explained that these were actually bunks for when the building was used as a transit station for moving wounded soldiers during the First World War! It was rather nice working in the shade after spending the hottest part of the day outside.
