Personal Branding Photography - Boat Builder
The Freebody Family have been living and working on the middle Thames, as boatbuilders, bargemen, fishermen and ferrymen, since the 13th century. Peter is now running the business with his sisters and he asked for some imagery to show the craftsmanship behind the company.
The team of craftsmen boatbuilders at Peter Freebody & Co are skilled in all aspects of traditional boatbuilding – design, hull construction, fine joinery work, finishing, classic craft restoration and conservation and brightwork. I spent a few hours shooting alongside the team at work, creating some environmental portraits of Peter and highlighting the beauty of the Freebody Slipper Launch – each of which is individually hand crafted in Hurley.
