Please note:


The opportunity to shoot in such a wonderful location does present a couple of challenges including space. Photographers attending the shoot will be able to bring their cameras, lenses, laptops and tripods although no additional lighting beyond a camera mounted flash gun (you can use off camera). Space is at a premium and so instead Unshaken Photography will provide Elinchrom Quadras and an Ice-light so that equipment is kept to a minimum.


On any single shooting day we will be deciding upon the locations that will be shot – due to the variety of locations it will not be possible to shoot all of the locations so a decision will be made in advanced as to which locations will be used.


About Talliston House:


Twenty-five years in the making, the project has taken a three-bedroomed, semi-detached, ex-council house in Essex and transformed it into a wonderland of inspirational locations. Now we invite you to explore this unique interior design project, art installation and private home.


Yet the essence of the house is more than how it looks. It is also how it sounds, smells, tastes and feels. And while images of the house are astonishing, it is not enough to just see the house – instead you must experience it.
