Somerset Life Magazine is a popular monthly publication that celebrates the beautiful county and people of Somerset. Packed with features about this picturesque part of England – from characters and personalities to heritage and traditions.


I was asked to travel to the delightful Candlelight Inn in Bishopswood, in the glorious Blackdown Hills, to capture some images to accompany a feature within the magazine. The Inn has a traditional feel with some low ceilings and dark corners but also some beautiful window light highlighting different areas of the restaurant. I used nothing but that gorgeous natural light and a bit of reflection so the warm, cosy feel of the Inn came across in the images also. I provided a wide selection of high resolution images including some portraits of the owners for the editor to choose from.
