YRSCOMMERCIAL. INTERIORS & ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHER. FORT AUGUSTUS MOAT HOUSE.
The abbey in Fort Augustus is really of two parts – the modern and the old. The old simply stunning, the new nicely sits alongside it somewhat in the shadows. And so it should, as the old abbey is designed and built on an extraordinary scale. So as you could image when converted into a huge holiday let complex, the old is somewhat sort after – especially key places, such as the front gate area and of course the view to the loch – historically and apparently one of the most prolific locations to see the supposed ‘Loch Ness monster’ – although this may have been due to what the monks were consuming at the time! With the beauty of the architecture externally, you then have the amazing structure inside. Especially in the lower floors. No better place can this be found than in the Moat House – the huge arches in each of the rooms holding up the
immense abbey structure above, the walls two and three feet thick all bringing the structure to life above you. We were asked into to photo shoot the interior of this exclusive apartment by the new owners. They are investing heavily in the abbey with other properties and this is one of the prime property examples. Whilst the property is at the front of the abbey in all its glory, it offers a secluded feel – the views to the managed gardens in front as good as the views from the loch shore. Shooting the property was a huge challenge – why? Everywhere is painted white, the rooms with the arches and curves reflecting the studio flashes used – so if you under expose the light you get very dark shadows (no windows in some parts as its under the abbey) and if too much flash is set to high, literally your are blinded. And every rooms is different due to its shape, size and of course architecture. So each shot had to be taken on a range of settings and then the best used in the post production process. This means three or four times as long to shoot the property as you’re not just looking for correct exposure – that’s easy – you are looking to emphasise the architecture which can be lost in bright lighting. So this means lots of separate strobe units and a lot of bounces to fill the shadows. The furnishings where then shot along with other investments making the complete property collection for use on their new website.
NEW! Looking for a holiday property photo shoot? Why not ask us for a holiday let property photo shoot preparation leaflet – it helps you think of all the things we need sorting for the shoot – you’d be amazed at what makes and a image and can no matter how hard we try, ruin it if not properly prepared for.
