The National Trust: Chartwell

This was my first time working for The National Trust and what an interesting assignment it was. Local National Trust property, ‘Chartwell’, was hosting the BBC Radio 4 programme ‘Any Questions?’ whilst on the same day there was a special preview of Chartwell’s latest exhibition ‘Gift of Power.’ I was asked to photograph guests enjoying the special exhibition preview, & a few of the key artifacts therein such as a cigar box from Russia – inscribed ‘Winston Churchill April 1945, Leningrad’ – with a lifelike portrait of Winston made from cigar leaves in its lid. I then took some candid photographs of the Radio 4 programme & then finished with a quick portrait of the radio panelists, David Starkey, Jeremy Hunt, Jonathan Dimbleby, Lisa Jenkinson, & Helen Ghosh.
