I’m feeling pretty pleased at the moment.

The Royal Shakespeare Company got in touch with me a month or two ago about using a winter image that I took of the house in Charlecote Park for the leaflets and advertising media in productions of Love’s Labour’s Lost and Love’s Labour’s Won which is better known as Much Ado About Nothing. The setting for the plays is, respectively, the summer of 1914 and the winter of 1918.

The stage designs are set around Charlecote Park, hence the request to use my image on their advertising leaflets. The designer had an idea to show the house in both the summer and winter and so my winter image was used as well as a summer one by another photographer.

You can see the result below in a a scan of the leaflet centre pages.
