Seasonal Soup

Here’s a couple of shots I did for the stock cube people Knorr before Christmas. The Pea soup can be eaten chilled so is perfect all year round but while the weather is still a little chilly warm up with the French Onion complete with an oversized gruyere crouton.

Style

This is my very good friend, the super talented stylist Nina Beresford. We’ve been friends for years but don’t manage to shoot together very often due to geographical locations. Here she is with one of the characters from a recent shoot we did and a shot of her I took when I was first getting into photography. Nina has a first in fashion and was able to rustle up a waistcoat for our stuffed owl in less time than it takes to say twit-ta-woo. Watch this space for the project we worked on together. http://www.ninaberesford.co.uk

Costa Christmas Campaign

I was lucky enough this year to be asked to shoot the Costa Christmas Campaign. We had lots of festive fun shooting in the lovely July weather recreating our idea of warm and cosy Christmas time. Here are a few of the shots, see my Commissions page for more and of course drop into a Costa for a cup of something chocolatey too. With thanks to Karmarama and Art Directors Jon Iredale and Laila Milborrow.

New Baking Video

The Vegetable Patch

Last month I worked with the uber talented Lucy Ruth Hathaway from Hers on a lovely fruit and vegetable series. All of the ingredients had to be sliced very thinly so we could shine as much light through them as possible. We also managed to create time lapse videos which you can see here: https://vimeo.com/133035981

Gold Rush

I am a magpie and would go to Magpie’s Anonymous if such a thing existed. So long as it’s shiny and irresistible I covet it. Here’s a good example of my gold love.

Interesting Interiors

As a former stylist I still love to play around with what’s going on in front of the camera as well as behind – call me greedy if you like. Here are some pretty as a picture interior images I shot recently which feature my beautiful parakeet Lydia by http://www.abigail-brown.co.uk.

Burgers

I know we should be switching to delicious fresh summer salads at this time of year but I couldn’t resist shooting an American themed burger shoot with Stephanie Knowles-Dellner. Amazingly we didn’t demolish the milkshakes as soon as the shoot was over.

My goodness…

it’s been ages since my last blog post, how naughty of me. I’ve been lucky enough to work on some really wonderful campaigns recently which has kept me busy. Here’s some shots from a lovely personal shoot I did in Devon, utilising a gorgeous old farmhouse. It’s a very simple story of bread and cheese, it may even inspire your lunch today.

The French Kitchen

I shot these images last week and unfortunately not in France but I think we went some way to creating the illusion of a rustic french kitchen. Heart warming and comforting – just the dish to end the winter months on. Food styling by Olivia Bennett www.oliviabennett.co.uk.
