    Food This week saw the first ever Crumbs Magazine Awards held at the fabulous Bristol Old Vic theatre, celebrating the best in food,drink and local producers.  In a diverse and innovative food scene like Bath & Bristol there is tough competition for every category, and I was thrilled to see some of my favourite clients walking away…

    Food The last ten days have been crazy busy.  Two major food festivals and the BBC's prestigious Food & Farming Awards, there's been a lot to keep up with!.  There was a fair bit of heroic double-festivalling (Is that a verb?

  • 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…
