Capturing Christmas at Lansdown Fields, Bath

9 December 2016 | Bath, Photography | by Philip Field

Following on from my interior and property photoshoot for Kersfield Developments (seen here) at the former MOD site in the Lansdown area of Bath, their marketing department got in touch to ask me to photograph the Christmas decorations that had been placed in their £1.5m show home.

The series of Christmas themed images were to be used by Kersfield and their Bath sales agents (Knight Frank and Savills) as part of their social media and winter advertising campaign.

To produce the shots, I was provided with 1 hour’s access by Kersfield to Tadwick House. Using a combination of shallow and wide aperture shots, I concentrated on the dining and master lounge area, capturing the beautiful lighting and sleek design of the interior as developed by Conran+Partners. To provide some artistic imagery and variation, I took several shots wide open at an aperture of f/2.8 to produce the lovely dappled bokeh effect created from the tree lights and focus in on small details like the table setting, baubles and ornaments.

Kersfield were delighted with the shots with their design director Naomi Pound responding,

“Philip, I’m blown away – these are stunning images, thank you!”
