A while back I was invited by Romney Marsh Wools to head over to Wales for a lifestyle photography shoot and to see what goes on in their wool mill.
Romney Marsh Wools produces pure and natural luxury British wool products including wool rugs, wool cushions, sheepskin moccasins and wool fat soap.
Although their fleet of over 1,000 Romney ewes happily graze away on the Romney Marshes their wool is sent to Wales to be cleaned, spun and woven.
I was fortunate to spend the day amongst the mill workers, watching them skilfully produce the softest of yarns from start to finish before being woven into beautiful products.
When photographing lifestyle images for clients I like too keep in mind the importance of showcasing the products in the setting it is made, but in an artistic, stylish way. In this case for Romney Marsh Wool really setting off the softness of the wool in such an industrial setting whilst capturing the enjoyment on the mill workers faces as they went about their work.
I love working with small local businesses, helping them to get noticed through lifestyle photography and Romney Marsh Wools is a great company to work with, using traditional farming and weaving methods to produce truly beautiful pieces. You can see what I got up to when I visited the Romney Marsh Wools farm at lambing time over here!
