Bridal Fashion shoot by Tommy Martin at Rampsbeck Hotel, Ullswater

Rampsbeck Experience Part 2 (now with added churches)

The thing that keeps me going as a photographer is that, despite the long hours, the endless client chasing and the ever shrinking budgets, the buzz I get from making images like these is incomparable and irreplaceable. My ultimate goal, my definition of happiness, is to come home from every shoot I do knowing that today I shot some of the best pictures I’ve ever made.

When I got together with Jaye to do a bridal fashion/beauty test the plan included doing some exterior shots in the beautiful grounds of Rampsbeck House. The weather on the day was, let’s say, not quite ideal. Discretion being the better part of valour, we stuck to shooting interiors and planned to regroup when things were nicer outdoors. Last week it was much nicer and we happened to pick the nicest of a series of nice days to return to The Rampsbeck.

As well as the hotel grounds we had been given permission to shoot at Watermillock Church, just up the road. So we did.
