Recently I was contacted by Meriem, a PHD student at Bath University, to ask if I was able to take some graduation pictures of her in Bath.
As a portrait photographer, Meriem asked if I could recommend a nice location in Bath. She was keen to have some shots with her family by the Royal Crescent, but also wanted to escap from the crowds and have some alternate images. Living in Lower Weston, Bath, one of my favourite spots, both for photography and simply to stroll around with my family, is the Botanic Gardens in Royal Victoria Park. It’s a truly magical location, with amazing plants and trees that change continually throughout the seasons. It’s also fairly quiet in the mornings with a lovely light passing through the trees, providing the perfect setting to take relaxed and informal portrait and lifestyle photos.
Above is a small selection of shots from the graduation shoot with Meriem who received a total of 90 images from the 1-hour shoot. All images were taken and supplied on the same day so Meriem could share her graduation images with friends and family straight after her graduation ceremony in Bath.
