Food Photography

For a number of years, as well as working as a wedding photographer I’ve also done quite a lot of food photography. Living in the capital of Scotland and being surrounded by a number of excellent restaurants and also working closely with a published chef I’ve had the joy and pleasure of photographing some really amazing food.

My style of food photography is to use as much natural light as possible but with a lot of light bounced back in. In the event that a restaurant or the food surroundings are extremely dark then I can and do use studio lighting as well.

I use Nikon full frame cameras nowadays (D4 etc), Nikon’s top of the range lenses and for lighting Profoto lighting heads and accessories. Profoto in my opinion is just about the best you can get and equally Nikon’s top of the range cameras nowadays are simply stunning

Cook book

At the end of 2013 and into early 2014 I was involved in the process of making a cookbook. Naturally my main focus was the photography side of things but I also had quite a lot of input into the design of the book.

The theme of this book was home made Taiwanese cooking, recipes that Taiwanese people regularly cook at home. Taiwanese food has massive depth and can include fine dining restaurant food, home food, street food and more but the publisher, Marshall Cavendish, only wanted to do home style Taiwanese cooking for Taiwanese ex pats. Here are some pages from the cookbook we made of which I would love to do again.
