Photography for stately home interiors
The interior images shown here were taken at Shugborough Hall, the former stately home of renowned Photographer Patrick Lichfield and I hope he would have approved.
Now managed by the National Trust, Shugborough Hall has some splendid examples of the splendour and opulence of a large Country Estate with extensive grounds, servants quarters and ‘follies’ built by former owners of the property.
The Hall itself present opportunities to photograph room interiors and the décor of the day, including many of the artefacts collected by the Anson family.
Photographing interiors requires an element of judgement and skill to avoid poor exposure and distorted lines. Occasionally taking a series of images and stitching them together as a panorama using software is the only solution.
