Here is the set I did for Tim Walker for the April issue of British Vogue - out now. It was inspired by Le Corbusier. The set looks relatively simple, but there was a lot of time and patience spent looking for and making the right pieces. The chairs are by Francois Carre and took about two weeks to source! The frame and fireplace were also really challenging to find. We had to make some of the mouldings for the frame so it looked the part. We shot this in November last year and were so lucky with the weather - phew! .
The set boys had a great time setting off smoke flares. You can see how cold it was - there was frost on the ground! You wouldn't know by looking at the pictures! .
I had to make a parrot perch for Emilio. I made his base from glass balls from lamp stands from Argos! The little cups either side of him were made from plastic cocktail glasses! It's amazing what you can use / get away with in a photograph. .
Emilio and me bonding. .
It was so beautiful. .
