  • Cameras in Kitchens

    I love meeting new people, and as a photographer you get to stick your nose into all kinds of interesting worlds.  Without a doubt, one of the most fascinating places is a professional kitchen where some of the most interesting, driven, talented, sleep deprived, hard working and often hard partying group of people, give off an…

  • Top Herd

    A few months ago I got a phone call to ask me to go and shoot Jerky for a new snack company called Top Herd.  I was more than a little concerned, I have to admit.  Dried meat snacks don't naturally lend themselves to pretty pictures, and I thought that making it look enticing could be a little…

  • Bristol Rocks to the sound of the Bean

    A big mug of Coffee is the perfect thing to get your Mojo back when you climb out of bed … maybe a pastry or two if you feeling in need of that sugar hit.  Now imagine a world where those two things were combined with dressing up in glitter and feathers and raving to some bangin' beats?  Welcome…

  • Seedy Chocolate Granola Bars

    When it's raining outside & my to-do list has become nothing short of epic, I like to ignore the world and spend an afternoon skiving off and testing a recipe I've earmarked from one of my favourite food blogs.  This one is inspired by the brilliant "The First Mess", although I have left out the…

  • Happy Green-uary

    It's January, and although I'm pretty sure that Publicans across the land would disagree, I think it's time to join the millions who embrace Dryuary as a way of paying back the misdemeanors of December.  I am OBVIOUSLY not prepared to give up coffee, chocolate or cheese but somethings got to give, so after enjoying…
