This is a special one, something close to my heart…FOOD! So over the years of being a professional advertising photographer, my favourite area of photography has developed into photographing Food. Food photography in London is quite popular, not just in social media, (there’s a lot of people with phones these days snapping their meals in fancy restaurants), but every restaurant I know has some form of photography on their websites as a ‘shop front’ to advertise the delights of their premises.
With a saturated market in the captial it’s imperitave now to enhance the look and make your culenary delights that little bit more appealing. To stand out from the crowd, to encourage punters through the door. Therefore it makes sense to hire a professional food photographer to come by and give your dishes an extra bit of sparkle!
As a professional food photographer, my imagery had been noticed by one of the great chefs of our time. In fact he holds the record for being the youngest chef to attain 2 Michelin stars, (at the age of 26), we are of course talking about the great, Tom Aikens. After working in many Michelin starred restaurants, he now runs 3 restaurants in the UK.
‘Tom’s Kitchen’, has restaurants in Chelsea, Birmingham and Canary Whalf.
Tom also appeared recently on the tv show ‘Great british Menu’, https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0071y6r as one of the judging chefs.
After a trial run photographing at the Canary Whalf restaurant I was quickly appointed to become the resident photographer of Toms Kitchen.
With the latest food photoshoot to take place at the Chelsea restaurant of various dishes, seasonal sets and bar photography of the cocktails and coffee. I’ve great pleasure in showing you a small selection of the imagery produced, but as always I hold back on a few just to keep that element of suprise for when you visit the restaurants.
I hope you like the imagery and look forward to seeing you there soon, the food is out of this world!
