Shoot­ing in early spring, we had our work cut out to make the most of the nat­u­ral light in­side the ho­tel. Our last stop of the af­ter­noon was the El­len­bor­ough Park’s Boot Room, where guests can come and bor­row out­door footwear and cloth­ing from the Dubarry range. Our model for this por­trait was one of the porters, and af­ter find­ing where the best light was for the shot, we then ac­ces­sorised the fore­ground, mov­ing a row of Dubarry Knee High Leather Boots onto a win­dow ledge in front of him. By this stage I was learn­ing that to get re­ally good por­traits of people, you need to take charge and get your sit­ters and the ob­jects around them in the right place. I look for­ward to try­ing all my new skills out on friends and col­leagues when I get home to Scot­land!
