Welcome to my website and thanks for taking to time to visit my about page.
As you can see from my online portfolio, rather than being a generalist I have chosen to specialise in Food, Drink and Restaurant Photography. There are three main reasons for this. Firstly, I am very passionate about the food and hospitality industry in general, especially the people that work within it. Secondly, when photographed well, I believe food and drink provide an amazing subject for photography. Finally, specialising in this area of photography allows me to hone my skills better and understand more about the industry in which my clients are working.
I take pride in my work and always deliver consistent, quality images with good lighting and composition. My ability to work with both daylight and artificial light is a key strength to my photography and is always an essential element when working with food and drink. Creative and controlled lighting draws the viewers attention and ensures the subject looks better than it does in real life. I am always measured in my approach and my attention to detail is something I am proud of. Whether I am pre-shoot planning, or working on lighting setups, this considered approach is visible in the end results and is valued by my clients.
Over the years I have been fortunate enough to work with a variety of clients from local chocolatiers and food producers to Michelin Star chefs. I am hired to photograph a wide range of related subjects including: food photography, editorial food photography (books and magazines), restaurant photography (general), restaurant menu photography, food packaging photography, food product photography, advertising food photography. The images I produce are used in a variety of ways by my clients, some utilise the high resolution images I supply for books, posters and adverting boarding, whilst others simply want quality content to upload to their social media feeds.
Some prospective clients may wonder why there are no rates or pricing on my website. The reason for this is that every assignment / photo shoot and every client is different. Sometimes it can take a relatively small amount of time to delivery quality images that meet the needs of the client. Whilst for other assignments it could take much longer due to the complex nature of lighting and styling required for the shot. What I would say is that I am always realistic and understand that clients have parameters they need to work within.
