Below are images from "Featherstone" in Woodstock, Vermont, where I do a lot of my local portrait photography. No matter the time of year, the grounds are perfect for outdoor lifestyle and fine art photography. Beautiful summer gardens, woodlands, ponds and streams slowly change to a brilliant foliage of reds, pinks and golds and then to an almost medieval winter landscape of frosty griffins, stone walls and winter woods. "Fire and Ice" in Woodstock, Vermont. There are also a lot of props available: Venetian masks, swords, Georgia O' Keeffe style skulls, medieval capes, and beautiful fabrics from all parts of the world, as well as vintage teddy bears, bubble machines and toys for the younger set. There is also a portable studio for the film noir portraits with a very dark background and typical Hollywood lighting effects.
Only a few minutes from town, some sessions start here and then progress to the covered bridge, Woodstock Inn and other local landmarks.
