Food photography doesn’t get as fun as shooting behind the scenes at Cactus TV where they film Saturday Kitchen. Incredible food cooked under a fair amount of pressure! Chef Luke Tipping from Simpsons Restaurant, Birmingham

Afternoon Tea at Bronte

At the corner of Trafalgar Square lies Bronte Restaurant. It’s a stunning Tom Dixon design with a gorgeous pink concrete bar. Worth a visit! Here are a few images from their new afternoon tea menu.

Top 5 International Food Photographer Awards

What a great year 2016 was for awards! Monthly awards are collected and the year results are now in.  I came 5th, which I am pretty pleased with.  Big thanks to the chefs of brilliance who are the real creators behind the images I shoot.

Exciting News

Couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that I have signed a global representation deal with Hancock & Handsome, the newly launched photographic sister agency of the highly respected illustration house Handsome Frank.

For existing customers this will not result in any change – I will continue to shoot and produce as I’ve always done. It does mean, though, that I will have the drive of some very experienced agents knocking on doors in places I would otherwise not be able to reach; not only in London but worldwide.

James Hancock, Jon Cockley and Tom Robinson will run the agency, drawing on their extensive experience in the creative fields.

 
You can check out the new site at www.hancockandhandsome.com and also their talented illustrators at www.handsomefrank.com 
 
It is such a great honour to be asked to join this agency alongside a set of outstanding photographers.

Chef Adam Bennett scoops awards

It’s wonderful shooting with chefs who I’ve worked with for years and Chef Adam Bennett is one of those.  We now have a great understanding and respect for both the dishes Adam creates and how I can best capture them in camera.

Here, the crockery was full of texture, the plates full of colour and flavour and the images award winning! _thecross-beetr_9083_1476270500
