I was recently commissioned by Shape Creative Agency (Manchester) to produce some packshot images for a Craft Beer project. Because of their reflective nature beer and beverage cans are quite challenging to light. As with any packshot photography work I always ensure the entire product is tack sharp and any logos are well represented. Below is a sample of the product photography I produced.
I have been working closely with Whitehouse Crockery for a few years now, predominantly shooting their products for the website. This year I have been commissioned to work on some creative images of their products. Shooting glassware, cutlery and plates are sometimes a challenge but it is this kind of technical and creative challenge that I enjoy the most. Every image requires a specific lighting setup to combat unwanted reflections and make their quality products look at their very best.
Below are a selection of the Creative Product / Still Life images I have produced:
I was recently commissioned by Itsy Favours of Manchester to create a number of photographs to advertise and promote their products. As well as straight forward product photography they wanted to create styled product shots and inspirational images. The brief required me to be creative but ensure that the hero product stood out in the table setting. Below are a selection of the images I created in the studio. These images are now being used on their website, for advertising and on social media.
This years Bolton Food and Drink Festival was another amazing event which surpassed last year in terms of talent, entertainment, variety and perhaps above all else, visitor numbers! Friday evenings ‘Magnificent Seven’ Gala Dinner at the Holiday Inn, Bolton was no exception. This year there were more courses, more chefs and again more guests! The extremely talented Michael Caines was joined by regional chefs Matt Taylor, Andrew Nutter, Debbie Halls-Evans and Sean Wilson (amongst others) to serve up a seven-course taster menu. Above are just a few of the images I captured on the night for Bolton Council.
I was recently commissioned to shoot the latest restaurant menu at the Fishermans Retreat, Ramsbottom, Lancashire. The Fishermans Retreat is a family run business set in an amazing location, with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The restaurant serves quality freshly prepared food which they aim to source locally. The restaurant itself is crafted from beautiful stonework which I have utilised in the above images to show both the character of the location, and the delicious food.
