There’s a part of my job that I love more than anything and that’s working on a shoot, especially when it’s with a team that is passionate, energetic, experienced - and willing to jump (quite literally) into the creative process. This shoot, for the launch of Perfect Bound, ran like clockwork. The weather was breathtakingly beautiful (unusual for Southern England in October), the location – the gorgeous Lidham Hill Farm in Brede, East Sussex – offered up so many possibilities for our shoot; and the team was fully on board with the story. You can see the results - a story called The Seekers - in Volume #1 of Perfect Bound, a new bi-annual title – magazine doesn’t quite describe what we’re doing – which is delivered in a high quality print edition, with additional and unique content – behind-the-scenes videos and features – on a digital platform (that’s online in non-geek speak). We're taking Perfect Bound all over the world and will be on sale in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Germany and Italy just for starters. Subscriptions are also be available on our website
