I write about this picture on my interior photographer page

“This picture was taken very soon after practical completion was achieved at the brand new Dorchester Fire Station, located at Poundbury on the outskirts of Dorchester. I have lots of pictures of Poundbury and its fascinating architecture, and the fire station certainly fits the bill in terms of architecture and style.

I wanted a picture however that told the story of the interior space of the appliance bay, which I was commissioned to photograph by the architect and main contractor. I managed to get two of the fire appliances in the bay early afternoon one February day, when the sun was shining in through the appliance bay doors. I wanted the light to reflect off the tiles and the sides of the appliances. It is planning like this, and knowing what you want the outcome of a picture to be, that helps me with my interior photography. That and a great camera and lenses that is.”

I like to name the names of the people I have worked with. On this project

I should have added that the main contractor was Morgan Sindall, and that the architect was Calder Peel.
