Photography for The Goldsmiths' Company - Callum Partridge

May 16, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

In March I was really pleased to be commissioned by The Goldsmiths' Company to photograph metalsmith Callum Partridge at work in his studio in Stroud for their long form stories platform, Goldsmiths' Stories. You can read the full feature, Callum Partridge: “Honest. Playful. Serious” by Jonathan Foyle on the Goldsmiths' Stories site here - it's a fascinating feature and a wonderful insight into the evolution of Callum's work.

Above him is a shelf with framed drawings and paintings and a bike, work bench and tools can be seen in the background behind him.Callum PartridgeCallum Partridge in his studio.

Callum's studio is filled with intriguing objects, intricate sketches and stunning pieces of his work and it was a privilege to document his process and find out more about his process. I'm really interested in workspaces and the relationship between people and objects/places so I was in my element photographing all the fascinating details! I've shared a few of my favourite images from the day here and I encourage you to read Jonathan Foyle's piece to find out more.
