Kilburnie the Inn at Craig Farm
It's been almost four years, since I last worked for Mr. Johannes Tromp – enthusiastic Dutch owner of a beautiful historic inn in Lancaster, SC. I met him, when I was shooting a magazine fashion spread in his place – Kilburnie the Inn at Craig Farm - and he was an excellent host. He must have liked the way we worked all day tirelessly to try to get the best possible shots, because in the end he asked me, if I would be interested in shooting his place for marketing and a potential book use. I happily agreed and during the next couple of weeks produced exterior and interior images, that are still featured on Kilburnie website today: http://www.kilburnie.com/ . It was 2008…..
So, as you can imagine, I was pleasantly surprised, when a couple of weeks ago, my phone rang and it was Johannes telling me about a new addition they’ve just built. The next day I was off to Lancaster to see it with my own eyes and it was something really extraordinary. I was so excited about a chance to continue my photography work on the Kilburnie project!
Within a week I shot about fifty shots for the targeted 10 final shots selected by Johannes from the online proof gallery. After the image selection, I worked on the images on the computer and finalized them on a CD-ROM, that I delivered to Johannes personally.
He was very happy with the results and I am looking forward to see the images on his website and his new book, that he is working on at the moment.
I would encourage everyone to visit Kilburnie. It’s a great place to stay on your vacation, business trip or if you plan a wedding or a similar event. You won’t find any place like this anywhere else!
