When I was approached by James Mansfield & James Flower to create styled images for their 200+ cuts of fresh meat, game, fish and cheese, I knew that to get this right, we needed a whole host of imagination, a lot of amazing knives and props galore. Fabulous food stylist Juliet Baptiste and I set about to create individual shots for every cut of beef, pork, chicken, game, fish and dairy imaginable….And the results are really exciting….who knew raw meat could look so delicious?
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
More lovely awards for very deserving chefs and restaurants. Some incredible food here and so glad the whole team have been recognised by this international food photography awards.
Last June was filled with gorgeous Japanese ceramics, sunny days of shooting delicious Japanese dishes with Reiko Hashimoto and Home Economist Elaine Byfield for a beautiful Bloomsbury Publication. The Ivy hosted a beautiful evening with Sake experts, Wasabi demonstrations and delicious canapés. Here’s a little more information

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.
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.
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!
