Adam Smyth is an author and printing press enthusiast (not to mention Oxford University professor with many more academic accolades!)

At his home printing studio, equipped with a beautiful self inking Model Press, we are tasked with taking some photographs for his upcoming book, published by Penguin Random House.

Adam’s studio presented some interesting challenges; a converted stable it was atmospheric and chilly, with limited space for lighting. I produced the images using a combination of available light and wireless Profoto flashes.
