Halloween Photoshoot at Berry Pomeroy Castle, based on ‘The Ring’

I love the summer but I have to admit, I do like going on Halloween themed photoshoots, especially when the model is a dancer so can come up with some scary and creepy poses.

The location was Berry Pomeroy Castle, reputed to be the most haunted castle in Britain. I have spent many, many days and nights at the castle. Some find it terrifying, I find it strangely relaxing.

There are so many wonderful textures and compositions there, it is a Halloween themed paradise.

Molly is a dancer and you’ll often see her performing for Tops Musical Productions. I think she posed brilliantly for this Halloween special photoshoot based on the horror movie ‘The Ring’.

There is a public footpath both from the top and the bottom of the castle but they are both very steep. During the day you can drive all the way down to the castle. The Castle Cafe sells lovely food and drink!
