Richard Branson’s Necker Island home in flames by Laura Leonard

“Richard Branson’s Necker Island home in flames” by Laura Leonard

So sorry to hear that Richard Branson’s Necker Island home has been destroyed by fire. News reports from the BBC have said twenty people escaped unhurt. The fire was caused by a lightning storm and Sir Richard was quoted saying “My office was based in the house and I have lost thousands of photographs and my note books which is very sad. But all family and friends are well – which in the end is all that really matters.” Actress Kate Winslet reportedly helped Richard Branson’s 90 year old mother to safety.

Dominic spent a week on the Carribean Island  shooting Richard Branson in his hobby mode of  Kite Surfing for his second charity book. Dominic’s books entitled Out of Your Tree 1 & 2  depict the private pursuits, passions and inspirations of notable personalities. Priory Studios has raised over 56K for The Central remedial Clinic and The Irish Cancer Society from the sale of the books.

We have some beautiful photographs of Richard Branson’s Necker Island home to share with you, in particuar the lovely panoramic view from the crows nest. We hope the Branson family will be able to rebuild their home as quickly as possible.

Just seen that on the news. Must have been a fantastic experience Dominic!
The nicest house in the world – his Cribs episode is fantastic!! I’m sure it’ll get built back just as cool! If only we all had the foresight to buy a Caribbean island for next to nothing back in the 70’s!!
