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...

It's Easter—and you only get one shot at it
March 27, 2018

  https://youtu.be/TxCrgvoQ4pQ It's Easter...and you only get one shot at it Excepting the fact that we've been able to buy Hot Cross Buns and Easter Eggs since the stores took down Christmas decorations, Easter is an important time for many clients’ marketing calendars. It's the time of year that—all things chocolate—becomes a fervid obsession for all of us. Getting the food money-shot Getting the perfect melting chocolate shot...

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! We realised that there are definite differences we automatically work towards, and wanted to share these great insights with you. 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...

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...

March 19, 2014

I was very surprised when I was informed by the American publishing company - Rockport Publishers, that they wanted to use 21 of my food styled photographs,  in their new book 1000 Food and Art Styling ideas, and here I was thinking I was just having a bit of fun on my back deck with what was freshly grown in my...

Orange and Pomegranate summer refresher
May 13, 2013

Orange and Pomegranate Refresher Summer is over  and I can feel Autumn’s cool breeze wrapping around the warmth of the day. Both Autumn and Spring are my favourite times of year. There’s a perception that in this part of the world it doesn’t get cold, or cold enough to whinge about anyway—but the older, timber houses here are designed for keeping breezes circulating on sweltering hot days which doesn’t bode well for keeping winter...

Hot Chocolate
November 8, 2012

On a recent trip to Peru, I visited the Cocoa museum where I got to consume the most amazing hot chocolate and learn about its 2000 year old history. The Incas drank the bitter Cocoa drink Xocolatl in an almost reverent fashion and saw it as a total health tonic. Cocoa is very high in antioxidants and is now considered a super-food—which doesn’t surprise me at all. After the Spanish annihilated the Incas, they took back to Europe many of the...

Blue Moon
October 30, 2012

How do you photograph a magical scent? I currently have an almighty wall of flowering Jasmine, draped in abundance over my deck railing. As I work on the computer or am practising yoga, intense wafts of rich jasmine engulf me. Its a moment that happens only in this season, and why spring is truly magical for me. I’ve been floating around on the melody of the scent for weeks breathing in deeply (and thanking the universe I don’t have hay-fever!),...
