Project Description

FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY

Food photography should say a lot more than just “this is a plate of food”.
It should capture the time, effort and passion that has gone into that particular dish,
the ambience of the restaurant and the personality of the chef.

Making the mouth water and the stomach rumble is the perfect reaction. The ideal food photograph should not only look good, it should make you hungry to eat it. We can create the right image that will make people not only want to eat what you are serving but want to be part of the experience too.

Whilst we are based in Lancashire, our food photography has taken us to Cumbria, London, Cheshire, Yorkshire, Scotland, Wales and even abroad, such as Texas and Alabama.

I work with a number of food stylists, in particular Adam Dalton of Dronfield.

Photographing Food With The Elinchrom ELB1200

I was lucky to be given early access to the Elinchrom ELB1200, and I wanted a number of shoots with various themes. Basically, to test the flexibility and capabilities of the unit.

Photographing Lindt Chocolate

  Chocolate. The one thing I have a hard time resisting when I’m photographing food. And this is particularly good chocolate, I have to say. Besides, if I didn’t eat at least some of it, my wife would grab the lot, never to be seen again!

Strawberry Splash

This image was developed for use with the food photography side of the business and has become quite widely recognised since we started using it a few years ago.

Photographing Chocolate

  Photographing chocolate can present challenges. If you aren’t careful with regards to lighting, the chocolate can take on an almost plastic look. Not particularly conducive to one of the world’s most renowned romantic food items.

Feeding The Eyes

  Food photography depends very much on good light, and yet the textures, shapes and form can respond extremely well to quite a simple lighting setup.

Food Photography

  All my food photography is client driven. Whether that’s restaurants, hotels, recipe books or Getty Images, the brief and styling is usually someone else’s decision.
