Innovation, creativity and sandwiches
April 9, 2018

Ah, the humble sandwich Many of us have memories of school lunches when our parents attempted a gourmet creation (in my case—tomato, basil and philly cheese), rather than sticking to the safety of Vegemite, jam or peanut butter. Come lunchtime those gourmet delights were often soggy messes—but sometimes there was a surprising culinary delight. As someone with a passion for food, food origins and recipe inspirations, whenever I come across...

Pollinator
October 24, 2017

Introducing Brisbane's Pollinator Space This busy bee has been pollinating for new ideas Big things have been a buzz this year. With the latest milestone of my passion project I've achieved a long term plan and am excited to share the news with you.

Food stylists have superpowers
May 10, 2017

Why a food stylist is my superhero sidekick A food stylist can prepare food that looks deliciously edible for hours! This is how long a food photographer needs to get those amazing shots. A qualified chef's fantastic creations are often for instant admiration and tasting. Even the most genius dish can structurally change over time into something more like road kill—only to be enhanced under the camera's detailed view. This is why I work with a...

What's your burger style?
April 6, 2017

­ On a recent burger photo shoot for one of my amazing clients, I was in pre-production with the food stylist discussing ways to style the burgers—as you do!

The Advertising Burger—versus—The Editorial Burger One is a burger you may be tempted buy at a fast food restaurant, the other a burger you may see in a...

Inferno
May 27, 2014

I haven't had this much fun with food in a while, when you get the opportunity to include food, fire, and exploding sauce all in one space,  mess happens - a lot of mess, but a lot of laughing , and a lot of scraping pizza sauce off your camera for days. This is from my recent shoot for the new Pizza Capers Inferno campaign. Special thanks to Feast's inspired team and to Danny Michaud from Light and Motion, for his help with the pyrotechnics...

Snuffed out
June 20, 2012

"Stilled Life" My years of shooting everything from high fashion to coal have taken me to wild and wondrous places. These experiences have given me a front row seat at the sources of our food supply. I’ve seen the good, the bad and the shockingly ugly. That connection has given me a enormous respect for the plants and animals that give up their life to sustain ours. For these reasons I’ve made personal choices to grow my own organic veggies, and...

Down the Rabbit hole
May 20, 2012

As a child I had a very vivid imagination, and a penchant for the theatrical. Nowadays, the things I dream up I want to be able to make a reality.  In pixels anyway. My idea was to re-create Lewis Caroll’s Mad Hatter’s tea party, but to capture the mayhem just after the characters had fled the scene. With the assistance of talented food stylist, Jaime Reyes, bringing the magic to the table by creating toadstools with cupcakes, burger-sized...
