When it comes to hosting an event, the presence of a friendly, creative professional event photographer can make all the difference. I specialise in event photography and provide comprehensive coverage for a wide range of occasions involving food and drink.

As an experienced food and event photographer, I can capture both your guests and your gastronomic creations, creating lasting memories of a truly exceptional event experience that can be relived long after the event has concluded.

My photography packages can also include portrait photography, venue photography and social media images and videography.

How it works

Taking a great food photograph is a creative and collaborative process that starts weeks before the actual photo shoot. I produce work for all types of clients – from sustainable brands and artisan wines to award-winning chefs and spice retailers. Whether you’re a large multinational or a start-up, my process is the same.

My process


Every photo shoot begins with a consultation or a discovery call that can be booked here. Once I understand your objectives and how you intend to use the images, I’m in a better position to create shots that are visually powerful and in line with your commercial goals. This initial consultation also gives me an opportunity to answer your questions, ease your concerns and guide you through every step of the process.


Once I have a clear understanding of your requirements, I’ll craft a tailored estimate or recommend one of my shoot packages. Securing your booking will then require a 50% deposit.

3.Shoot Brief

Once a job is booked, I spend some time researching your business and experimenting with some test shots. I then put my ideas together in a creative brief, which outlines the type of shots and photographic approach that are best suited to your product.

Once we agree on the creative vision and signature style for your product, I construct sets, prepare props and select backgrounds in preparation for the shoot. I then share with you a final copy of the shoot brief and shot list which will require your approval.

4.The Shoot

The shoot takes place either at my private studio in Richmond or on location at your own premises, using my mobile studio. All clients are always advised to attend shoots but I can also work remotely, sending images through WhatsApp for approval. As well as capturing the images, I can style the food myself or arrange for a stylist to come in and provide this service but this would need to be agreed in advance.


During a full-day session, I usually take around 200 different photographs. From these, depending on your shoot package, I ask you to select 20-40 shots, which I will then retouch.


The basic retouching process takes five working days.


All of your final images are delivered online via WeTransfer or through a download link.
