Time for Tea

Simeon Rosset is a freelance butler - the real kind, not the strippergram, although he says he periodically gets inquiries about it. He served his time as head butler at Leeds Castle and now hires out his services for events such as exclusive gatherings, weddings, and shooting parties, and can be found butlering anywhere from Scottish castles to European palaces to Super yachts. When we met it wasn't long before we started talking about creating a butler-in-action shot.

And so a couple of months later I found myself out at Craufurdland Castle near Kilmarnock. Although this castle was built in the 18th century, the land has been in the family for nearly 800 years. We decided to do the shoot in the library, as a wall full of books would make a timeless backdrop. Many of those tomes dated back hundreds of years.

Simeon also runs a Butler School service, training potential butlers to the high standards required. On this day he was completing the training of Alistair, which gave us a 2nd butler to include in the shots. The shoot went well. Everyone adopted their roles and got into the part, and it wasn't long before I managed to get a couple of photos I was really pleased with.
