#GlosCreator series – Charles Martell & Sons

University of Gloucestershire photography student, Jakub Junek, visits Forest of Dean cheesemaker Charles Martell & Sons, for the second in SoGlos's #GlosCreator series of photo shoots.

The #GlosCreator series

SoGlos has teamed up with the University of Gloucestershire Editorial and Advertising Photography degree course to capture some of Gloucestershire’s most fascinating creators on camera.

Standout student, Jakub Junek, was selected from the course’s top photographers to collaborate with SoGlos, and is visiting a series of unique, creative Gloucestershire businesses for an exclusive behind-the-scenes insight.

The second #GlosCreator photography shoot took place at cheesemaker Charles Martell’s farm in the Forest of Dean.


Charles Martell & Son

For more than 40 years, Charles Martell & Son has been making cheese at Hunts Court Farm in the Forest of Dean, producing seven different types of cheese including its famous Stinking Bishop, a pungent cow’s milk cheese that’s washed in perry to give it its characteristic colour and smell.

Charles Martell is also credited with reviving the making of Single Gloucester, which has had Protected Designation of Origin since 1997, and can only be made in Gloucestershire, on farms with a herd of Old Gloucester cows.


Jakub Junek

Hailing from the Czech Republic, Jakub Junek is a young portrait photographer and filmmaker currently studying on the University of Gloucestershire’s BA Hons Photography: Editorial and Advertising degree course, which is ranked in the top 10 photography degrees by the Guardian University Guide, and aims to develop ‘professional photographers who create inspirational, creative images for global brand’.
