Soho House Cocktails & Coffees

Over the last few months I have been commissioned to photograph various events for Soho House including collaborations with Martini, Grey Goose Vodka and Bonpass and Parr as well as covering an ongoing series of pop up restaurant residencies at Shoreditch House.

Most recently I was commissioned to shoot a cocktail and barista guide, capturing 100 cocktails and coffees in 3 days over 2 locations. The guide will be used as reference across the Soho House Group's 50 locations worldwide. 

Personal Work

I had the pleasure to work with Prop Stylist and Art Director Sarah Birks and Food Stylist and Writer Jennifer Joyce on a series of dishes inspired by Jennifer's upcoming book on south East Asian cooking. Dishes included oven baked lotus crisps and tofu burgers with sweet chilli sauce.

Bang Bang Oriental 

My Time Out commission covering the newly opened Bang Bang Oriental food hall in North London was a return to my roots. It's predecessor Oriental City, a food hall where I had eaten with my family since the early 90s, was certainly missed after it closed it's doors in 2008. The good news is that the food at Bang Bang doesn't disappoint.

Thomas Cafe at Burberry Regents Street

Burberry commissioned me to shoot press photographs for Thomas Cafe at it's flagship London Regent Street store. It's breakfast dishes included a whole Lobster Benedict and a Full English served with a double yolk. 

Michel Roux Snr for Waitrose Magazine

I had the pleasure of photographing Michel Roux Snr at the Waterside Inn, Bray, which has had held a record 3 Michelin stars for over 30 years. The feature has been published in the current November issue of Waitrose magazine.

In Print

Here are some examples of my work in print in Eurostar’s Metropolitan magazine. On the left, a revamped version of jelly and ice cream by chef Dave Cousin at Straight and Narrow in Limehouse. On the right, when Charlie met Lucie, it’s blind date time at 45 Jermyn Street, by Fortnum and Mason.

Florals

I have been working with online florist, Bloom and Wild for some time now, shooting eccommerce, social and advertising photography. It always amazes me how many stems you can fit into one of their postal flower boxes. I am learning more about flowers too... I now know my anemones from my craspedias.

Portraits for Chef Robin Gill and BBC1 Presenter Alice Levine

Chef Robin Gill and Masterchef judge photographed at The Manor in Clapham for John Lewis. Robin’s steak tip - leave your steak out of the fridge for an hour to warm up to room temperature before you cook with it.  

BBC1 Presenter Alice Levine photographed at home in London for You Magazine. Unsurprisingly she has a good vinyl collection and an old brown 1970s record player to play them on. Whilst I was shooting we talked about second hand markets, avocado on toast and Adam Sandler films.

Food and Drink

It has been a busy few months shooting food reviews and area guides for Time Out, Waitrose, Eurostar and The Infatuation and working directly with restaurants and PR agencies. The red snapper photo was commissioned by Enrica Rocco cookery school as a part of a wider series of images for their website relaunch. The beer battered cod taco was shot at Killer Tomato in Shepherds Bush for a food and drink area guide on behalf of The Infatuation. Gelupo was part of an ice cream feature for Eurostar, shooting London's top parlours.
