I was really pleased to have an outdoor location for this latest portrait, virtually all my client photography is outdoors and its where I love to be but it’s ages since one of the Fifty was outside. I met Sue at Brinscall Hall, near Chorley, its a beautiful old house where Sue teaches one of her gardening classes but it’s also an important step in Sue’s journey from hobby to self employed.
As a keen gardener Sue attended a Open Garden event at Brinscall Hall several years ago, she loved the place so much that she volunteered to help in the gardens and as her passion grew she went on to study gardening at college. She eventually left behind employment as a university administrator to teach gardening and now offers short courses as well as a garden design service.
