Food & Drink is an area I have been fascinated with and passionate about for as long as I can remember. Growing up in rural communities in various parts of the world (and having suffered too many terrible 'school dinners') food and travel have always been familiar and important to me. Be it location based or studio based, creative commercial photography is vital to my many food and drink clients, large or small, whether they are producers, restaurants, pubs or cool cafes.
I also undertake editorial commissions for a variety of media publications such as book publishers, magazines and design agencies in UK, Europe and USA who want a particular story told. Clients include Sunday Times Magazine, The Guardian, Jacqui Small Publishing, Octopus Books, The Guardian, Observer Food, Restaurant, Hot Rum Cow, Cidercraft, Imbibe and Wine Enthusiast magazines
In 2014, I won a Fortnum & Mason Award for Best Drink Book for a book I shot and co-authored (Worlds Best Cider) I also a judge for the Taste of The West awards and for various international cider competitions.
Food is such an everyday part of our lives its easy to make the mistake of thinking that food photography is easy, it isn't, but it does have to look that way! Much like the best food and drink writing, good food and drink photography is about making people hungry/thirsty- inspiring them to grow, cook and eat in new ways and better than ever before.
