Dark Food premium
I find food endlessly fascinating and beautiful (not to mention delicious!). It’s a wonderful thing to be able to indulge my life long interest in food in this way, and photograph it for the sheer pleasure of it..  in my own time and at my own pace. All of these images were created over a […]

“and if you think you don’t give a fig.. “ premium
“and if you think you don’t give a fig..   “ Where I live there has been no shortage of fig trees heaving with fat, ripe figs lately – and their owners are happy to share their wonderful bounty before the birds can get to them all. Last week, my neighbour – who is also […]

Bespoke wine bottle styling premium
Jay Heifetz of Bottleshots Photography specialises in product – particularly bottle – photography. I teamed up with him recently to create some bespoke styled shots for some Australian wineries.

Dôme Café Group – 2017 Summer Seasonal Menu premium
I love working with the team at Dôme Café Group and photographer Leon Bird! This recent shoot was for the new 2017 Summer Seasonal menu, and as usual, had a few little challenges to overcome..  ice-cream, maple syrup, hazelnut spread oozing just right, and an icy, creamy Christmas drink. Everything shot “both ways” (i.e. from above and […]

Food styling for Woolworths Fresh Food Kids campaign premium
A fun job working with  M&CSaatchi and DeRepublica for Woolworths Australia. It involved setting up a raft of fresh food for AFL footy hero Nic Naitanui and his two young fans to build themselves plates of healthy nachos after a good kick around the footy field. “As part of Woolworths Fresh Food Kids ‘Eat Like A…’ social series, […]

Celebrating 35 years of Scratchies – Cake premium
Sometimes the brief for a job is a bit of a departure from “just making the food look good”.  This was one of them. Working with art director Kylie Clifford to create cakes for a TV commercial was one of those learning curves where knowledge of food is important, and problem solving more important. She needed […]

2017 Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year premium
I was really delighted to have one of my images short listed in the Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year competition earlier this year. Although I entered several other photographs, it was this simple one of “burrata” that caught the  judges’ eye in amongst over 7,000 other entries. I had to work quickly as the cream […]

Roasted Peaches with Ginger Crumbs & Orange Mascarpone premium
This delicious dessert (or brunch?) recipe for roasted peaches was made using a particular gingernut biscuit that most New Zealanders will identify with – made extra hard especially for dunking, and advertised with a catchy little tune that’s impossible not to think of if you are “of a certain age”! Of course, if you can’t easily get hold […]
