Men’s Fitness Magazine- EatFit

At the end of last year I was commissioned to do a 3 day shoot for Men’s fitness magazine. They are starting to produce a quarterly magazine called EatFit to supplement their monthly magazine. The style is very different to what I am used to. It’s very minimalist and all about the food. As usual, I rose to the challenge…   Many thanks to Rob Lavery for his art direction, Karol for his food styling, and Jodie for been my assistant for the day.

Sainsburys Magazine- Follow the stars feature

I was commissioned to photograph a feature for Sainsburys magazine. The feature asked a selection of Michelin-starred chefs to share their favourite, and fabulous festive choices for their main course this Christmas. Here are the images-

Borough Market Magazine- Celebration of cheese

Cheese-OPT01

Cheese-OPT02

I was recently commissioned by Borough Market Magazine to help them promote their 'Evening of Cheese' on the 10th of December. I was very lucky as the design team asked me to pitch them an concept for the image. It's very unusual to have such creative control over a commissioned image like this. As I have slight OCD I decided to play around with the idea of organisation, and this ended up been the basis for my idea. I ended up supplying the client with 2 images in the end. One was published as the centre fold for the magazine, and the other they turned into the invite.

Thanks to everyone at Borough Market magazine- Ellie, Kate & Rachel. And to Claire for commissioning me for the project. Also to my fabulous assistant on the day Jonny for his patience and creative input.

Sainsburys ‘Live well for less’ Magazine

I was hired to photograph some canapés for the December issue of 'Live well for less' magazine. The clients loved the images so much that they ended up using them over more pages than were initially planned. Here are my favourite ones-

Many thanks to the 'Less well for less' team. It was a great day as always!

‘Who said not to play with your food’ Part One

I decided to approach a creative personal project on soup in a slightly different way. I asked myself, how do I show soup other than in a bowl or pan? I wanted to explore taking the ingredients out of their final context. So, influenced by the renaissance paintings of food between the 14th & 18th Century, and with the help of the fabulous Davina, I made soup ingredients into floral inspired displays. Although the images may appear effortless, the bouquets were very difficult to structure. A massive thank you to Davina Perkins for her fabulous prop styling and art direction. Not to mention getting stuck in with helping to create the bouquets. Here are the final images-

Old El Paso

I recently did a shoot for Old El Paso with the agency Ogilvy & Mather UK. It was a 3 day shoot where we took seasonal photos for them to use across their social media and in print. Only a few of the images have been released so far, as the shoot was seasonal there will be more to follow!

Asda cakes

I was recently commissioned by VCCP to shoot a selection of celebration cakes for Asda. This was a technical shoot for the digital department, where the final outcome was a series of interactive banners. The main focus for the shoot was the pinata cake, where I took a series of images that were finally stitched together to make an animation showing the excitement of when the cake is cut. Here's a selection of the images-

And here are the stills I took for the Pinata animation-

My new studio

After a wonderful year of sharing a studio with Craig Robertson in London Bridge, I now have my very own space in Queen’s Park. It’s a beautiful daylight studio, with a very large kitchen and car parking space. I also have a selection of props and backgrounds that are available for use. It’s in a fabulous location, just a short walk from Kilburn tube (Jubilee line), Queens Park (Bakerloo line), or Brondesbury Park (Overground). It’s also a short distance from local amenities. Here are a few pictures- If you need anymore information, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
