Travelling around in a bus, we visited various historic to further understand the incredible life that Beatrix lead and all the contributions she left. We visited her Hill Top residence and I photographed parts of her house which appear in her books.
About Liesel BocklWorking in the intimacy of her family home/studio in southwest London, Liesel Bockl produces endearing and charming images far removed from the stiff formality of a traditional photography studio. Her photographic subjects include portraiture and lifestyle commissions as well as more documentary-style work shot outside the studio, for both private and commercial clients. Liesel’s natural eye for an image has combined with her broad experience of visual design (including a 10-year career as an art director in advertising) to produce a signature style that is direct, clean and fresh. She works closely with clients while planning a shoot to understand their needs and has a range of props and locations at hand to create the desired atmosphere, whether for warm family portraits or a campaign that captures the value of a brand. Liesel speaks Japanese fluently and clients with international requirements value her rare ability to cross seamlessly between Japanese and English, contributing to all aspects of a shoot. She spends several weeks each year on photography projects in Japan.
Exactly a year ago, I started renovating an old Victorian House into a working house studio and home. The cramped old Victorian kitchen with an awkward utility room and adjoining study was turned into a bright, open space with large bi-fold patio doors to the garden.
