When Dartmoor photographer Rebecca Blades was starting out 18 months ago she needed a place that she could use as a studio and came up with the idea to buy a caravan and create a mobile studio.

After searching on eBay she eventually found ‘Clive’ a tiny, scruffy, dirty caravan and bought it for 99p. Rebecca transported the caravan back to Devon and set about transforming it into a gleaming, but small mobile photographic studio which she takes to country shows and fairs like Bovey Tracey Carnival, Tavistock Goose Fair and the Chagford Show.

Photographer Rebecca, who nicknamed her little caravan studio ‘Clive’ said: “I shoot portraits and family groups of up to six people and pets, especially dogs. There is just enough room to work in here providing nobody wants a full length as the roof is quite low.”

Rebecca, known as Bex, studied photography at Plymouth Art College before starting her own business with ‘Clive the caravan’.
