Professional Tips on Effective Interior Photography.

In this month's issue, Tatler Magazine & photographer Christoffer Rudquist visited Hawarden Castle to document it's deep-rooted and historically authentic interiors which echo tribute to its former owner and political predecessor William Gladestone, who acted as Prime Minister between the years of 1868 and 1894. 

Highly recognised for his methodical accuracy and empathetic appreciation of space and interior, Christoffer captures the dated vibrancies of the castle while also subtly highlighting decor which integrates castle grandeur with purposefully more modern pieces, introducing the personality of the Gladestone family into the imagery.

We caught up with Christoffer to get a better perspective on how to shoot interior. 

Here is his advice..

1. Pay attention, look as much behind you as to what is right in front of you. I like to do a few walk throughs of the interior before I begin shooting. 

2. Document what you want to shoot, I use my cellphone during a scouting to make my shotrlist.

3. Wide angle is good but not always that good. If the subject allows it try and keep a tighter crop.

4. When there is the option to style the interior, better not doing it at all then doing it badly. Let’s be honest, you’re there because you feel the people living there have done a good job with the place.

5. Personally I never use flash.
