About the Book
Choreographed over a period of several months, this pictorially orientated coffee table book is a fine testament to Pike House, one of the most photographed country homes in the area and a superb example of vernacular Cotswold architecture. Formerly called Tilt-Up-End Cottage, this Grade II, listed property situated in a southern corner of Chipping Campden has been gradually changing over the past century, both inside and out. Whilst still a quintessentially 'chocolate box' cottage with a myriad of original features - this property has now been elevated to such a high 'level of luxury' that I can only describe it as ...fit for a king!

Paul has been shooting pictures professionally for well over thirty years - highlights include having just minutes to photograph the complete Midlands Today team for the BBC, waiting five hours for an audience with the now infamous Robert Maxwell, flying well over a thousand miles in a Chinook helicopter with just the pilots to rescue a sinking yacht, dodging terrorists whilst running a wildlife safari, documenting a myriad of semi-submersible rigs and oil drilling platforms in the North Sea - and he's also been lucky enough to work with an almost endless list of prominent people, blue chip companies and many multi-nationals too.
