Four public houses were on todays list, these were in Guildford, Redhill and Camberley. The Britannia pub in Guildford sits along the river and on a glorious summers day was busy with customers, with a barbecue in the front garden and traditional meals being served in the restaurant and the recently renovated rear garden it made for the perfect setting as a lot of the images can be used for the clients general marketing. Next stop was the Crown and Cushion, a traditional country pub that sits next to Mead Hall which the pub uses for weddings and events, certainly one of the most impressive function rooms I have seen. Stopped off here for lunch as well, really good traditional food in a rural setting with plenty of charm. Redhill was the next stop for the Hatch pub, it was mid afternoon so only a few customers were around so when the landlord mentioned about the cocktail bar and putting together a few creations it was the perfect addition to the set of photos. A smoking gun was used to add drama to one of the drinks and really added some drama to the photos. Last of all was the Lamb just outside of Guildford, a traditional High Street pub.

I used the 24-70mm lens with natural light for all of the photographs, the addition of the tripod for the interior photographs was used as some of the older pubs have beams and dark panelling, a long exposure gives great depth of field and detail to the overall images.
