Vanessa Hogge, Ceramicist

After already having worked with Vanessa on a series of behind the scenes pictures, she booked me to do a photoshoot for an article for US publication "Where Women Create". The brief was to illustrate Vanessa's inspirational and creative spaces. The first part of the project was to create a concept and a mood board to present to Vanessa, and together we created the final idea of bringing her ceramic pieces into nature, and flowers into her studio. This involved shooting both inside her studio as well as outside in her garden, which we styled into the tropics with bought flowers weaved into the existing greenery! It was so much fun and we both loved the results.


"Polly and I worked together to devise and shoot a collection of images for a feature for a magazine in the US - she was full of ideas, fun and a breeze to work with. Her shooting style is with minimal fuss and equipment, almost fly on the wall so not intrusive in the least. She worked fast - two locations on the same day - and a package of images delivered within a week."
