I was delighted to be asked to photograph a property for Grand Designs last season in Maylandsea, Essex. I have watched this show for a very long time and was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately the weather was not kind to us and it was a filthy day! The rain was relentless until early evening when shooting was almost finished. The property was not quite finished especially the grounds which the rain turned into a bog! The build was an incredible achievement by the homeowner Geoff who built a flood proof home alongside the Blackwater Estuary. However despite the weather it was a great experience to work with the production crew and to meet Kevin McCloud.
