Charles Sandford

Late in 2017, we were joined in the workshop by acclaimed photographer Julian Kingma, who had the job of capturing a day in the life of the Charles Sandford workshop in images.

Jules is one of Australia's most respected portrait photographers, with several of his images held by the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra. He also does a lot of work with food and travel. But on a fairly warm November day, he was at our Preston workshop, being strafed with woodshavings from lathes, dodging forklifts and finding awkward vantage points to photograph our people, timber and processes.

The results from his labours are dotted through our website, and we'll share more via our Instagram account, but here's a quick selection for you to look at in the meantime.
