Deborah Husk is a commercial photographer who also creates photography as fine art, exhibiting every July in the Marlborough Open Studios from her base in Alton Priors. Her work is stunning.
‘I’ve been a photographer for over 10 years and love the process of studying the subject and defining how best to take the shot. Styling and lighting is key, and the output must appear effortlessly gorgeous and desirable.’
Commercially, Deborah primarily works with lifestyle products. Clients include British fabric and accessories designer Fermoie through to fashion and a high-end artisan tea company. She works hard to create the right environment paying attention to craftmanship and detail, helping create memorable images that connect with customers.
‘My fine art pieces are inspired by my environment. I love my garden and choose plants and vegetables that, not only taste good, but that I ultimately want to photograph. I also create images that are unique, photographing antique collectibles such as watches or hip flasks, so they almost look real. Many items we hold on to have no purpose but lots of sentiment. By photographing these pieces, you can bring them to life in another way.’
Deborah’s studio is fabulous and most of her commissions are created there, although she can travel to your premises if required. Don’t miss The Open Studios, an opportunity to see Deborah at work and have a go at photographing like a pro!
My Wiltshire is a place of beauty and calm. I am constantly surprised by hidden gems - villages, churches, little frequented walks. History is all around - you only need to open your eyes to see our rich heritage.

East Field in Alton Priors stretches over a mile east towards Wilcot and north to Walkers Hill. There is a permissive path around the headland and the views from the north side of the field towards Woodborough Hill are stunning. In winter with the sun highlighting the contours or the mist rolling along the valley floor the view is no less dramatic than in the summer when the view of ripening crops is topped with the distinctive clump of beech trees. I never tire of the view.
Marlborough is home to many hidden gems, one being Fermoie, a premium British designer and printer of fabrics and accessories. The fabrics are designed in house and printed in the Marlborough factory. Using traditional techniques, the print creates a subtle impression but with the depth of a woven fabric. The showroom is open on Wednesdays and there is the occasional sale … I love sifting through the fabrics and coming away with lengths of wonderful heavy printed linen to be converted into statement cushion covers!
A recent 3 day walk along the Ridgeway was a bit of an eye opener. It has to be done… you’d be surprised how beautiful the scenery is as you skirt around Swindon, so beautiful and all on the doorstep. We ended up at the Royal Oak in Bishopstone & what a pleasure it was. The evening meal (divine, especially if you are a pork lover – all organic to boot), luxurious rooms all individually themed and a truly generous breakfast. What’s not to like?
