Back from Bagdad










Just back from a two day shoot staying at the most beautiful Armytage House in Bagdad.

What a place.

I want to move there.

Picture if you will a converted barn set amongst the most delightful gardens, filled with groaning apple, quince, hazelnut and walnut trees.  The highlight for me however, and the setting for most of our work, was the rustic outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven and a massive brick hearth, all kitted out with a stylists dream of collectable vintage kitchenware. The theme of the shoot was cooking with fire, and I ate so much delicious food cooked on the hearth I thought would burst.

I've finally unpacked the car, taken some gorgeous kitchen props back to the lovely Tammy and now can relax and look at the photos.  Somedays I need to pinch myself because I get to do such amazing things.   If you love to cook and you ever visit Tasmania, you must visit Bagdad and stay with June & Gil.

  1. These photos are amazing! I've never actually stopped at Bagdad - it's always been the signal on the way to Hobart that there isn't too far to go now! Might have to rectify that one day!

  2. Oh my! That looks amazing, thanks for letting us know about it! (although the link is throwing up warnings - I searched via Stayz instead) Pity they are booked out the night we are going down or we would have stayed there for sure, oh well, next time :)
