Mental Health Care Home in Northampton
The above photographs of a care home for mentally ill youths were commissioned by a design and build contractor. The primary intended use is for tender submissions in similar future projects. Due to the sensitive nature of mental health care, this shoot had to be done before any patients moved in. This meant shooting in mid December with short daylight hours and typical “grey” winter weather. The shoot took place during the client’s furniture installation.
A good briefing and knowing the intended use of the photographs, ensured the images produced were fit for purpose. Special features in this building include anti-ligature and security systems. Shots of architectural details to show future prospects the contractor’s knowledge of this type of building had to be produced.
