Frontispiece editorial photography shoot

I am often commissioned for editorial photography but it was a huge surprise to receive a phone call from country life magazine. It was even more of a surprise & a great honour to be asked to photograph their editorial frontispiece. It has been described as the most famous page in publishing, the frontispiece is also known affectionately as the ‘Girl in Pearls’.

It’s launched the editorial section since January 8, 1897, the very 1st magazine! 

It is a bit unusual for my team for only one image to be used! However we are in great company as the Queen herself has featured no less than 8 times in this editorial piece.

Here are some of the images from the recent editorial photography shoot commissioned by Country Life magazine & of course the frontispiece as commissioned & published!

A huge thanks to
