I was asked to visit a young lady by the name of Kathryn Whitehill, in Heswall, Wirral who needed some food photography. She had been a contestant on Masterchef, and has a food blog entitled Simply cooked with love. She felt she needed some new images to help kickstart her new site revamp. A lovely lady, and her site is a good resource for home cooking recipes.
Quite often, when presented with a dish to be photographed, I want to isolate a specific part of the food, rather than present the whole thing. This could be derived from the main ingredient, or the most photogenic item amongst the whole platter.
This series of images were requested for a PR company that specialised in PR for companies dealing with interiors. The brief was rather vague, other than to get a variation of images, including details. The guidance would come from the builder and owner.
Fashion photography can be a funny old thing. You meet with the client and they have a good grasp of what they want. They want the detail to show, and the quality to stand out. Great, that means they aren’t going to go for that full on flat lit look, so often seen on their competitors websites. Something to look forward to.
The food provided for the attendees at the Enterprise Visionary Awards is always something special. And this year, they didn’t disappoint.
I had the opportunity to photograph the rather beautiful Mercedes SLR McLaren at William Loughran, esteemed supplier of performance and luxury cars.
This was the second shoot with Hazel for her client, Kenanks in Burnley.
Photographing large vehicles brings it’s own challenges. Photographing a group of four especially so.
